hey guys,

thanks for the advice, car went much better the back didn't come round when applied the power. Now i just have to get used to driving the car quicker, still needs some fine tunning to get it right, need a few shims in some places to stop the slack.

also found when driving the car coming to a slow corner from as fast straight (say turning into a hairpin) when turning in, it seemed to just slow down to much and lose to much speed.
Is it possibly to do anything to solve this or is it just the way the car is.

If anyone here needs a spare stallion for parts, I am selling mine. It has 8 carpet packs through it and still looks brand new. $245 to a good home. I can send pics if needed.

Stallion owners if anyone has been looking for the shin conversion & are intersted in seeing them available in the U.S. post it.
The team manager for Kyosho America is placing a special order & is wondering if anyone else might be interested as well.
I have been out of electric touring for a season due to the heavy nitro program but Im looking forward to racing electric again I will be running the shin edition outdoor asphalt for the off season & will keep in touch feel free to ask ?? anytime as I am in contact with Kyosho America very often

thats great,look forward to hearing what the car can really do when pushed to the limits,

haven't heard much on the shin car, but i love mine being very competitive so far for me and only racing it twice at club meetings, i still think it can go faster just haven't got it right yet

also glad to hear that people are starting to get it in America, i had to get mine from rcchamp

all the tf5 series cars are good for asphalt racing, including the shaft version. the shin version is the latest spec of the tf-5 stallion belt driven car.
