I don't think it's "fact" anymore. There's Kyosho parts out there on shelves.
your post is completely irrelevant.....what's your point? I never said you could'nt get parts for a Kyo car........I said parts support at our track, not in Jackson, MS....whatever, I dont really care buddy, we all run what we WANT to run, Mark is a friend I Race with all the time, it was a friendly suggestion for him.

Wow. Please accept my humble appologies for causing you undue whatever-it-is I did.

I agree, run what you want. You said you race in MO. I said I race in MS. I was unaware of your relationship w/the OP and ignorant as to why your location mattered. My point was I was from the US and there's track support.

Geez, it's not like I said you your driving sucks and your car smells funny. Take it easy. Have a coke and a smile.

Tobacco Smoke Enema (1750-1810)
The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to its disappearence and the popular phrase “blow smoke up one’s ass.
dude, classic!!! ... also I understand it may have come from magicians "blowing smoke" to cause an illusion, and then it somehow got blown up the @$$? That actually sounds like a more practical explanation.

Default Kyosho is good.

I ran Kyosho for years, great car. I do drive an 808 these days and love it, but kyosho makes great cars, and who cares, order the parts you need, or better yet get two kits and have every single freakin part you need. If you can afford it, racing is expensive sometimes. Get what you want.....Your the man....

Mark, is Nigel still at DB? You can get support from him too. I know you can because I got parts from him once.
well he's kinda hit or miss, not sure whats been up with him lately???

Hi Monty... the differences are not huge, but it is noticeable, especially on high bite tracks with a lot of flat corners. The car seems really stable and quick through the corners. The medium set-up is a bit lighter, which can't hurt either. I can say that we've never used all the droop on the TKI set-up.

That's pretty much exactly the answer I thought I would receive .

The only real difference is amount of down travel , which you use less of if you have a smoother track and/or higher bite.
That would effect the jumping characteristics also :-)

The only thing I am getting at is that there really isn't much difference between the two setups and not necessarily know that it would be worth it to spend 100$ or more just to upgrade to the setup if you have the tki kit which does have alooottt of down travel that you don't need . Shorter shafts would be a cheaper alternative or just use the droop screws

Thanks,
Monty


See ya at the pit pk !!

Honestly, the SE car is a great deal on a VERY good car. It has all the stuff that was improved over the TKI (first release) model. You would have to be a little nutty not to want the SE over the TKI.

some people dont mind paying the extra money to have those little things that most people wont have on their cars


Kyosho has treated me very well over the years , if i was offered more than a 50% deal i would take the offer
