practice today, car is much better settled in the rear.

3mm under front & rear camberlink
middle position rear camber link
thicker shock oil (500) all arond & HPI Gold/silver springs
rear dampers in pos. 4

Car is now easy to drive, but I think it can be faster for that one hot hero lap! But for now I'll keep it that way and just have fun tomorrow at the race without the stress of finding that hot setup ;-)

Matthijs,

Good to hear that my setup tips helped you out. If the car is too easy to drive just go little bit softer on the front spring.. pink/silver would be something you could try.

I think that a spool in front would be a bit faster/sharper for stock racing then a gear diff...Not to sure though, I only used gear diff in rear until now.

Still using D-D in rear?

TomEG,

I usually measure the droop with Hudy blocks, on the end of the suspension arms underneath the pin that goes through the hub. 99% of the time I use 6 in front and 5 in rear..

yes, tips were great. I'll try the other blocks in the rear soon. Also the spool. New tires also helped a lot this sunday. On the old cpx 11.7, on a new set 11.2. Had some nice finals, finished 4th in te A-mains. Steven and Bart were way too fast. I had a nice battle with Patrick J in the first and third final, close racing is fun! I have to practice some more, my concentration fades away after 5 minutes, not good in 7 minute finals

Thanks Vasco.

Btw. does anyone have a tip as to where I could get a couple of geardiffs? The only place I found on the net was Banzai Hobby, but over a week after I ordered and paid, I got a reply saying they were out of stock, and they had no idea when they were back in stock.

Been a fan of Kyosho all my life. All my offroad racers are Kyosho. Retired my tf-5 a while ago and couldn't get my hands on a TF-6 due to it not being sold in the country and parts almost impossible to find... even online.

Now driving a TCX and a Sakura XI. A local driver showed up at the local race series with a TF-6 last Sunday and damn.... it's such a good looking car.

Truly a shame....
