Default Kyosho touring cars (TF series)

Can anybody own up to loving all things kyosho, I need some help because I seem to be a lost cause, currently own a ZXR, TF1, TF3 99, TF4, 3 lazer alfas,a readyset ford focus rally, a V1R, a Koyosho boat and have just bought myself a KX-ONE, can give good advice on all the above except the KX-ONE and could do with any help and suggestions.

#1: A replacement DIFF for the front oneway, is one made and by who?

#2: Tarmac setups I would be gratedul for any

#3: Carpet setups again all will be gratefully recieved.

As for the older TF cars I can be some help as have now owned pretty much the entire range and still do on most of them.

cheers

I'm not sure on setups but on the KX-One you can use the diff for the rear in the front. You can also use the heavy duty 6mm one-way made by Tech Racing. I have both but won't be able to see how it runs for a couple of months.

Thanks for the tip, I assume that I can buy a replacement rear diff, is it the same size pulley as the one way? would have thought so but you never know with kyosho.

Also does anyone know of an aftermarket motor mount set as the stock item is not very pretty.

cheers

The rear diff is a direct bolt in for the one-way up front.

Kyosho makes a hopup blue anodized heatsink motor mount.

Default TF-4

I've had a TF-4 R for over a year now and was thinking about racing it.
I'm a off road guy and really don't know that much about touring cars.
Have you raced your TF-4 and if so how did it do against these newer and
"better" cars? Also you know of any performance parts available for the
car?

The TF-4 Type R, is an excellent car, a lot of Hop ups are made for it by numerous companies look at control centre dot com, however the most popular ones are the Trinity Gold anodized parts.
In stock form the car in unbreakable also very fast, which is a little odd really as it is way over weight, work that one out for yourself, the front one way works well however it will stand up to modern cars in kit form with its head held high.

To set the car up for tarmac (Asphalt) I would recommend 40 - 50 weight oil in shocks, medium hard springs something like 25 lb's,1/2 deg camber at rear, 1 1/2 at front,middle setting on front shock tower and slightly more upright on the rear, the car is remarkably quick and I think you SHOULD be using it, if only to show up the Morons with the TC3's and Lost's (oops Losi's).
Trust me and run it you will have a silly grin...
