Modded Kyosho arms. It's cheaper to mod them than to have them made. Also going to "try" to stick to the stock 10mm shocks as we did on the SC. Now that we have 100 different big bore springs to chose from this will make it easier for the suspension to be tuned really well.


Thanks on the Props! I wish my Mod buggy was handling the same.

Wow! at that price I might get one too! Anyone have any idea why it's marked down so much? Is a new 2wd buggy coming out?

As late as it is here on the left coast, I just spoke with our machinist and it appears that our Carbon Fiber battery straps for the 201 will be hitting the machines by end of next week!

These hold downs will be made for std 201 and Zahhak, TS201+6, TS201T and TS201SC lengths.

Price has yet to be determined, due to the cost of C/F going up and down like the stock market. Once we get an average nailed down we'll give you the complete low down.

Stay tuned here or at www.trackstarrc.com

Is the +6 the ideal chassis, I remember something to to the effect that TS would make a + chassis of any size for a customer. Just wondering if you found the happy medium at 6?

Glad you like it. I cant wait to get one. Im hoping late August or September I'll have enough money to buy one. Im currently saving up for one thou.
I wanna get the newer version that already has black gears in the box.
Im not going to be trying for a track record but at least come close.
I can drive pretty good, but setup and driving is gonna help me out in club racing. Im also going for the Viper brushless 7.5 system instead of the Tekin 7.5.
I know most of you are running Tekin, but Im telling ya the Viper is smoother.
A local fast guy here runs Viper in his B4.1 worlds edition. So I wanna run
the same electronics he's running in his car.

Car looked really good. I think the last win was when the track was oval with like a Frog or Fox.
