have a search for ToniSport in google , toni is a great guy and with products only coming from Germany there is no worries about import tax

here is my chassis , I have been running it and i think this is one of the best touring cars on the market , and it is the fastest thing i have ever driven.



The team support is great and the car gets better and better every time i run it

last night @ mach heemstede tested the (for me) new lipo chassis. Car felt great, fast in corners and good grip! Having lots of fun in the stock class. Made some big crashes (thinking 2 evenings of onroad-practice is enought to drive on the edge ) but the car is fine, no damage. Finally got the times in the 20.1, should get more speed on the straight with new lipo's, but that's for 2012 outdoor season

Congrats on your drive! How is the lipo chassis working for you? Glad you like the car very much. If I could get a hand on the lipo chassis here in US I might have kept the car.

Anyways, enjoy the racing!

hey, again, thanks for the car, it was in a perfect state! Lipo chassis is working great, more flex and better corner speed / grip. You wouldn't know anybody else in the us that want to sell his tf6? Some of my friends want one to now

Well, I think I was probably the only one of the few in the US who has a TF6. I have never seen anyone else around me who has it. I got it from a friend who got it from Asia. Kyosho America does not carry this car at all.

Anyways, if you have friends in Asia like Japan or Hong Kong, they might have some.

What bodies are you guys using on your TF-6's? I have limited experience with TC, and have no clue what body to buy for a TF-6.... Would a TF-5 Readyset Dodge Stratus fit? I have seen some Protoform Stratus bodies being used, would that be a good option?

I don't have a TF-6 yet, but hopefully I'm buying a nice used one in the coming days.

get a protoform mazda speed 6, best allround body. I don't think the tf5 readyset will fit.

Does this car come with those ball bearing type front axles? how durable have they proven to be?
