yes i did. I hv a kyosho team driver to teach me before but this happen so many times till i m shy to ask again.

btw i m thinking to get a tf-5 shaft driven. how izzit compared to the stallion(i hv it), any tf-5 owners out there? As far as i know belt is better for mod, shaft is good for 23t. Any other excuse for me to get it hee..

heard that theres a new suspension for tf-5 from Kyosho

http://www.kyosho.com/jpn/products/r...ges/W5197V.jpg

Special (velvet) coating on the shock case realizes stable and smooth shock function.
*For TF-5 / Velvet Coated Case (same size as W5189-07)

MODEL NO No.W5197V

I use spools everywhere and the only reason I haven't run the car yet is that I'm waiting for one... I didn't even consider running either spools you mentioned, instead I ordered a spool from JP Products sytaight away.

Obviously it's in French but Patrick understands english, so if you just ask him by email he'll tell you the price and delays. Remember these are hand made spools so he needs some time to make one for each customer. I recommend getting a few spare outdrives, as even though they're very durable (in my other car, I've ran the spool for over 5 months now and still have the original outdrives in it), you never know you might break one in a big crash.

I use the Kyosho aluminum spool in my TF-5. The LA201's will fit the TF-5, but I prefer the weight savings from the aluminum bits. Also, I don't think the LA201 can form a spool. It's used for the ball diff.

If you have a Stallion, here's the link for the spool.

Cheers,

Jeff @ SpeedtechRC.com

Hi all,

This thread hasn't been very active lately.... had to go down to page 8 to find it...

Anyway I wrote a review of the Stallion Shin, which you can find HERE

You'll find my latest carpet setup for the car and some useful tips. There'll be a second part in a bit with more tips, probably an updated setup (maybe an asphalt one as well) and how the car wears etc...

Enjoy the read.

Nice tips & pixs. But i m still using the wide chassis due to lipo. I wish i can use the shin version but it wnt fit my 6000 lipos

I hv both the TF5 & stallion both handles differently I like the TF5 as its shalf driven. The Stallion feels abit loose
