No he stated it was a 17t brushless, that's why I assumed it was a 17.5.

Default I thought Gil Losi went to Kyosho as a designer.

Did he move on already? I've been waiting to see something new from him. I wish he would go back to Losi and get them back on track again. lol

Sorry, I'm quite new with terminology - it is Orion 17 brushless, not 17T brushed. Apologizies of the confusion.

Yes, I've changed the readyset electrics to Orion brushless 17 combo.

Do you have the reference for that ? I have a feeling it's the sensorless one you got ?

In that case you cannot use the gearings for 17.5T as they are two totaly different types of brushless systems.

I'd say stick with the gearing you found was best.

How is the quality of the Kyosho TF-5 Ready Set Sports? I'm just looking for an electric tourer to cruise around two local tracks of mine as I'll be racing nitro. Any feedback from owners who have had the car for some time and driven it?

It's actually very nice. I've changed my electrics to the set above.
My upgraded parts are:
- alum spur gear holder to support increased power (no wobbling of the spur)
- alum rear front hinge pin holder,I brke the plastic several times. Only part that has broken actually.

MikaR - Thanks for the reply. I'll be looking at one probably around spring time when all this cold winter madness comes to an end.

Kyosho is coming out with a new car in near future, you may have see that in the RedRC .. it seems it designed for brushless and lipos out of the box which is nice don't you think?

For the stock class (here) I'm putting up a new TF-5, which will replace my current readyset version. I figured it gets cheaper to buy the whole car instead of upgrading it. I know it's not latest and greatest but according to R/C car a shaft driven car is ok for the stock that I'm currently running.

For the modified I may get the new car once it arrives. Cheers

Default TF5S

Hi there. The TF5S (SD) is available pretty cheap locally. Looks like its the same as the readyset version but without re anodising, AND 200mm width.
Can this be converted to 190mm ??
Are these cars cope with a 10.5T BL ?? or will I need to upgrade a few parts??
I heard the outdrives are a bit weak (??)
http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/cars/in...part_num=30813

I want a shaft drive, this car looks like good value. Too much steering slop in the tub Tamiya SD's for my liking.

Hi!

Good value indeed.
Outdrives and driveshafts (universals), otherwise should be okay.

I just installed spool to my TF-5 RDS; it has delrin outdrives included.
I'm still running stock driveshafts (universals) but have fixed them twice in front (have spares from my Lazer that has steel universals right now..)

The body is 200mm but the car itself is 190mm. Just switching to a 190mm body will make the car 190mm completely.

Hope this helps,
Cheers
