So that Yokomo part is a good fit without mods then? Do you have a part number?

Good discovery.

to bullet proof the plastic spool..

Yokomo ZS-501R Diff Joint Ring For MR-4BCS Front Diff

besides the color it is as if it was made for the kyosho.

then you need to bullet proof the center adapter otherwise it breaks where the hex pushes in on the side opposite to the pulley.

there are 2 ways of doing this.

#1 put the plastic sleeve close up against the pulley and use the red aluminium sleeve as a brace on the outside. i think you'll need to use a shim or two to stop the bearing from rubbing without filing a bevel on it.

#2 (the method i use) use the silver sleeve for the tf-5 that comes in the diff rebuild kit. cut it to the same size as the plastic sleeve and bevel the edges with a file so that it doesnt bind up on the bearing.

the only other problem i have had with the car is the motor shifting on tracks where breaks are used from high speed. have fixed for the most part by making up some slotted aluminium inserts to replace the o-rings in the motor plate (basically turns it into a standard style motor plate).

Good discovery.
the part # is SD-630D, it fits on the tf5's rear input shaft, but dont expect it to fit 100% although no filing etc is needed. but some shims are needed to take up the spaces as this unit is slightly shorter in length compared to the kit unit. i've ran a few packs using this unit and so far its held up fine. alternatively, there's a light weight version from yokomo as well, but anodised blue which doesnt seem to go quite well with the red.

well the internal drive ratio is 2.5 so divide the spur by pinion and multiply it by 2.5 = FDR

spur/pinion x 2.5 = fdr

Hi Martin, the only real weakness on the car is the plastic front spool (LA211 is the spare). I would try and source one or two of these as spares if you plan to run the spool (we are out at the moment, hopefully more in our next Kyosho delivery). The aluminium replacement should also be available shortly.

I've also broken a couple of the C-hubs/uprights (TF006-4), I don't think these are a weak part, I just clipped unforgiving corners at speed (or got punted into orbit by another car!), these are the parts that always break on tourers.

Other than that I think the post made by Barger a short while ago sums it up, the car just works out of the box. Can't ask for much more than that really!

Comes with blades too.. a very nice touch

Shock towers are nice to have too, i broke a front one when another car went the wrong direction on the straight. Yokomo BD towers fit as a last solution.

You run the Stallion with 5 or 6 cells?

Droop

I was sent a PM asking how to get more droop out of the car. My answer is this...

To get more droop just run the shock ends a little bit unscrewed (I also put plastic spacers on the shaft to cover the exposed threads).

I run about 2mm extra length on both front and rear shocks - this gives me plenty of droop for rubber tyre racing. For small diameter foams you might even want to try longer shock ends like the medium cups on UM112.
