Has anyone installed the new TF6-SP2 conversion kit yet? Part # TFW151

I see they added a few goodies and have the f/r outdrives/driveshafts updated with the pin style outdrive.

The update kit is really good value. The new axles and outdrives get rid of the ball system which dramatically reduces the maintenance and setup time!

New topdeck and harder plastics provide better corner speed and better steering reaction.

Hi I am looking to buy some replacement knuckles for my Tf6 sp and noticed there are two part numbers. tf224 and tf237. What is the difference? Is the tf224 the standard sp knuckles and the tf237 the updated sp2 knuckles?

I think it's 1.83, I might be wrong though.

Yes believe so, I could be mistaken though. If so someone here will correct me soon enough.

Default TF-6 Tips and Tricks

Hello all

Thinking of jumping the on road programme for 2015 and since I already run Kyosho on the dirt I was thinking of trying out the TF6.

Here in Greece there are no TF6 competing so I have no idea what to expect from the car. I was club racing a T3 2012 to pick up a few things from the on road world and it was really nice...how the TF6 compares?

What will I need to run the car for a racing year? The tracks here in Greece are outdoor asphalt with medium traction so I was wondering what should I need...HPI springs I quess for sure, anything else?

Is there a good base outdoor setup I should start with?

WOW a lot of question! I hope to hear from you guys what do you think

Regards
Argi

A floating battery mount! Never thought of that before. Is Kyosho releasing a full kit or just upgrades for their previous cars?

I heard about this floating battery mount idea from some Japanese friends who worked in some RC manufacturers over a year ago. At first it was a pet project of them and they plan to release update kit of this kind of battery mounting for Yokomo BD7 end of last year...nothing happened. Seems Kyosho has capitalized on this idea, but too bad nowadays Kyosho is no longer a contender in electric TC...

They could've did a better job with the display. The wiring job is fugly for a trade show and normal racing. The push for a onroad comeback seems pretty lack luster judging by the marketing. I'm still a fan of kyosho and will consider getting one just to run once in a while during club meets. The floating battery is interesting but skeptical when it comes to getting t boned.

They seem to be putting the majority of their efforts into off road, but at least they are still doing something with on road. If they can make a current on road that is as good as their off roads, they could have a winner on their hands.

The TF6-SP is a great car. I ran it on carpet all last winter and had very good success with it. As winter is making its way back I'm putting my MP9/ST-RR away and getting my TC ready for racing this up coming season. I just bought the SP2 Conversion Kit and the new One Piece Aluminum Servo Mount. Being a Team Driver here on the East Coast USA makes it a bit tough for set-up support as there isn't much of a K-car on-road following around here so I mainly worked on set-up myself. Not to mention Kyosho America/USA hobbyshops do not carry any TC kits/parts (1/12 is available) so I'm forced to get everything I need directly from Europe & Japan. This website http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/kyos...KyoshoTF6.html will give you a good start weather your racing on carpet or ashpalt. I started with the set-ups on that website and from there made small changes to get the car dialed in. Good luck with your car and I'll try to check this tread regularly for any help you guys may need.

As for that new floating battery mount it looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing one in person.


Almost forgot. As for the springs use the Yokomo springs. They fit the Kyosho shocks very well and have have plenty of stiffnesses to choose from.
