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
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.

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.
