Looks like the actual outdrive ring is #28. You might have to call K-America about the acutal parts tree number or Speedtech Rc. Steve at Speedtech might be able to give his inventory a quick look to see if it is included. It seems that the same part is used with the spool and diff sets. It might be in those part trees. If you are running the spool on a regular basis you might want to consider the aluminum spool. It works great.

I dont have experience running the car on asphalt with foams but..... you might want to start increasing the front spring rate and dampening. The setup might be a little soft for the foam tires. We either run foam on carpet or rubber on asphalt. Good luck. Let us know what you learn.

Hpi s and xray springs fit, just need to file a bit the top of the spring to "open up", you can use tamiyas but you need to unscrew the collar of the shock and put it upside down

Kyosho Blue is approx 20lbs.

The HPI Springs will give you a good option.

White 20.3
Yellow 21.7
Red 22.4

thanks guys

so we use a much softer spring compared to say corally , which aus team drivers use up to and around 40+lbs ,but the stallion has a very stiff chassis correct? so we'd use a much softer one to compansate?

The spring rate list I provided was to illustrate the heavier spring rates just a bit stiffer than the Kyosho blue.

The Stallion does has a relatively stiff chassis. Based on what other competitors are using on other cars should give you a better idea of what spring rate to use even if you have a different car. LIke I mentioned before we dont run electric classes like yours (foams on asphalt) here in the US except for carpet.

Ask the guys at your club what they are running, if you can, borrow some srpings from them and see what they do on your car.

It is really trial and error. There are a lot of variables that can also effect the setup you are working with.

hello:
pardon by my English of google.
I am interested in a TF-5 cardan joint, I have a Asso at the moment. TC4 + novak 3.5R + lipo, I am tired of the maintenance of the differentials of balls. my question is him can be put to the Tf-5 the back differential of satellite of the FW-05 or some of the mark.
a greeting and thank you very much

Thanks for the info; it is too bad that it is a hike from LA to the OC. Good luck.

mark... i think i read in here that the diff height can be adjusted on the kyosho car? if this is true.. what does that to do in terms of handling? (i.e. raising the rear diff over the normal position? or lowering it from normal position?)

My notes around this are;

All Diffs...
-high, will make the car run flat but more responsive.
-low, will increase onpower steering


Generally...
-high rear, low front = most steering.

How is this going to help you with a Tamiya car
