Pricing on Kyosho cars haven't been all that bad. Both the ZX-5 and TF-5 shaft drive have been priced well with some options included. The RB-5 buggy is also on par with other buggies of the same level. Somehow on the TF-5 Stallion (belt drive) they have missed the point.

I tried that but found some bind on the shock body. Would rather use the springs that have a larger ID.

The K springs seem to fall in the 17lbs - 20lbs range.

No one can deny that Kyosho went way overboard on their cars- how can an electric tf-5 stallion be much more than a nitro Evo RRR WC kit...its ridiculous. Its very expensive, yet doesnt come with all the goodies...

Wanger - I tried to get you there... will call you in the morning.

Limmer - Steves car is pretty dialed close to box stock with some smart tweaks. You can durability test it after Reedy Hmm, you seem to have been spending a lot of time in the K-Zone lately.....

Is that bonus check burning a hole in your pocket? You are welcome to a test drive. Just dont back it up into the bricks.

Diff is an option on the Stallion, it comes with one-way and spool (although the plastic spool is very fragile and won't last a race).
