Default TF-5 springs...

Can someone please tell me what kinds of springs I have here? The first springs on the left are silver, while the third one has a gold tint to it. The last ones on the right are silver with a bit of light blue paint on the bottom...

Or is there some kind of Kyosho on-road spring chart somewhere?

THANK YOU

edit: come to think of it...are these even Kyosho springs? (got this car used)

The silver ones with the paint are Kyosho springs. Some of those other ones look like Xray springs. I think the orange ones are HPI.

Default tf-5 readyset

Hi guys, I am off work for 3 months due to a motorcycle crash and am looking at doing a little indoor carpet racing when I am able to move around. Nothing too serious, I am mostly looking to get out of the house. How is the tf5 readyset? I would hope to pull the receiver out and put a spektrum in that I already have. Would this car be decent to practice on and to do some club racing?? Are the wheels standard mounting so I could get some foams for it?? Thank you in advance!!

Hi guys i run a shin, but find it quite fragile, the spool's finally had enough and now just running a one-way but i guess for 540 i can live without a spool, however i've gone through all my spare knuckles and can't source any ... anyone got ideas on best place to buy from?

cheers!

R/C champ in japan will have them or get them , give them an email the service is awsome and they are very nice people to deal with, also shipping is cheap.
for 540 you probably should be running a oneway to keep corner speed up, i run a shin in mod and 10.5 and the spool is really the only weak part, but that can be fixed by using TOP spool sleeves over the out drives so they dont spread apart, look on the TOP web site and youll see them

Hello,

have the Kyosho TF-5 Readyset with Orion brushless 17T motor (stock spec class).
Spur is the stock 68T - now what size pinion gear would you suggest for it?
Have 20T, 24T and 31T (and the stock 38T).
Have a race coming tomorrow and it looks like the 24T is pretty okay. Seems like the 31T is too tall and the motor does not accelerate well...it kinda goes back and forth.. Accelaration looks good with the 24T, slightly worried of the top speed since the track is quite large...
Any experince anyone? Help much appreciated.

Thanks!

What speed control and battery are you using? How large is the track? Carpet or asphalt?

Hi, good questions, thanks for responding -
it was medium size carpet track with very good grip, motor is 17T brushless Team Orion combo (don't know the exact model but it's a rather new one)
During the race day I tried out 24,26,27 and 31 pinions and settled with the 26T eventually. It was a rather good combination of acceleration and top speed and gave me the best lap times. Not sure but I calculated final gear ratio of something like 6.5 with that 26T pinion.

Are the gears on the ready set version 48 pitch? Because you should be around a 4.2 final drive with a 17.5 brushless running 64 pitch gears. spur/pinion x 2.5 = FD.

Yeah, readyset 48 pitch gears. So it is 68/26 x 2.5 = 6.5

I got so hooked on carpet racing that I'm planning to get the Stallion Shin -version

Scrad is right. Regardless of the pitch of your gears, your final drive ratio should be around 4.2 with a 17.5 motor. It also matters what speed control and battery you're running. The different speed control settings will determine a lot! Believe me, you will not be disappointed with the Shin version of the Stalion! Check out my setups above when you do get one.

ORION 4000 lipo

Thanks! I will propably get one soon (for Xmas)

Getting 4.2 final gear ratio would mean 40T pinion gear I believe which is way too large. I tried 31T and it was freakin fast but impossible to drive in the technical sections.

Is this correct:
4.2 = 68/x * 2.5
4.2 * x = 68 * 2.5
x = 68 * 2.5 / 4.2
x = 40T

I'm confused, the readysets come with a 27T brushed motor combo. Did you get a brushless system on top of that ?
