Yes, I can get them aftermarket but factory items are better.
It's unlikely the top deck will fit, TC and Buggies have different wheelbases.

In other words they are calling this car the "TF-5" not the "TF-5 SD". So there will NOT be a "TF-5 BD" but something else?

Tim? Anyone? Anyone?
Shafty = TF-5
Belty = TF-5 Stallion

June is the expected release for US market.

odds are their shaft drive is more focused for the stock and 19 turn market where torque roll isn't as noticable.

Hopefully we'll see the TF-5 in action next month at the Reedy Race of Champions at the Tamiya track.

and yes...we'll start a pre-order as soon as I can find out the details with Kyosho America on Monday

Steve Wang

p.s. HI Tim, I think now is a good time for that overdue phone call from me

Looks like the TF-5 Stallion belt car will also be displayed at the Shizuoka show in May together with the TF-5.
