no, it's kind of a secret, special, high tech company with a low profile, we don't want just anybody using these parts and as a result being just as fast The latest results from the TRF-guys speak for themselves

Ok asphalt season starts up here next race ...thank god ....it was a tuff winter/carpet season with this car.......so im guessing most guys are using chris setup from hemstead?......i modified my rear bulk heads and cut off the extra mounts that vasco suggested...i wonder if i should go back to the un modified ones for asphalt.......i remeber last summer this car was amazing just box stock on pavement.

I would suggest sticking to the modified ones. The new prototype chassis feature holes for front bulkheads in rear.. The difference however shouldn't be that big, just a little more flex..

Setup wise I'd recommend basically what Phil says as a starting point, apart from the 0 - 0.5mm shims underneath the front pivot blocks.. run 0.5-0.5, the anti dive only works on certain tracks.

I'd start with HPI silver/silver since this is 90% of the times the way to go, pink/silver is not always the best option out there.

I've included a basic setup that should work at nearly every track/surface.

Furthermore I'm happy to tell you guys that Kyosho is working hard on putting an 'upgrade' kit together. This kit will most likely include the new steel axles/outdrives, floating servo mount, solid piece suspension block(s), new topdeck and maybe a few other nice goodies. I can't tell you the exact specifications or release date yet since this is still unknown. Ofc I'll try my best to keep you all updated!

I've been driving around with all the new prototype bits for quite a while now and have to say that they work amazingly well! We made a lot of progress on carpet but on asphalt the car is outstanding!

Don't know the part nr's to be honest, but the 'short' original TF6 arms work best in pro-stock most of the time.

Last sunday the Dutch Nationals were dominated by John 'Kiwi' Bruins with the TF6 SP in the stock (sp cirtix and 13.5 v3) class. Outstanding performance and a good warmup for the next ETS race on the same track ;-)
