Tyson, Out of curiosity how wide front and rear is the TF-6 standard and with your above toe block settings? I'm trying to gauge with widths of the current cars in relation to the amount of corner speed they carry. I have no one locally running this car to check out but after seeing them run in Qld they look very good..

You wont find this car anywhere in north america unless you find it used....BUT i got this kit from germany and to my door with shipping it ended up being 575 CAD.....which to me is reasonable......also i got a lot of spares off EBAY for considerably cheap prices....also banzai carries some parts for it as well....if you drive on asphalt this car is great right outta the box....for carpet its good but takes some setting up.

@rcnewb123, I sent you a private message. Maybe I'm able to help you out.

@everyone,

Went testing last weekend.. Car seems to be working better in pro stock with a solid rear suspension block and split blocks in front combined with the thin TF6 topdeck with front brace.

When using the most forward motor position our motor still seems to be too far backwards. I might modify my motor mount to get it another 3 or 4mm forwards (Tamiya 417 position) and give it a try.

Just a pic from the servomount from Raceberry mounted. Still solid as a rock and working like a charm ;-) Also testing some T-shox next week, let's find out what the hype is about...

Received the onepiece suspension blocks from our good friend @ Raceberry. Tried them last night, one mounted in the rear with 4 screws and one mounted in the front with the two inner screws. Car felt good, a little stiffer but good on carpet!

Also mounted a set front bulkheads on the rear, tamiya stabi, very satisfied with this setup (incl. the T-shox ;-) )
