Second that, with the optional nut it makes life super easy when building new clutches and minimizes having to bend the spring back which I agree with tebo and the feel of the clutch.

Default Shock towers.....

After reading a lot of pages, thought it might be quicker to just ask the question. The only answer I found was post #18063 where the member was not sure if it would fit, but didn't see why it wouldn't.. Need a bit more of a definite answer before placing a order for them. Will the shock towers from the TKI3 fit the ready set? Does anybody have a link to information on what all will fit from the TKI3 to the ready set?
Thanks......

Just look in the instruction manuals of the 2 cars. If the bulkheads are the same between the 2 cars, which I think they are, then the shock towers will fit fine. But just check the bulkheads, if they're the same, you're good to go.

Dont buy the RTR or any for that matter unless your a brand noob. You spend way more upgrading it and getting it the way you want after the initial purchase. The best way is to buy a great used TKI3 or spec A or TKI2 even. It does kinda hurt saying this because its still a Kyosho- but the RTR is junk like 95% of RTR products theres no way around it. Its cheap plastic and stamped crap aluminum.

Yes. It is lighter. I ran it with the Buku clutch (Buku recommends a vented bell to prevent overheating of the clutch). Not much more to say than that really.

Big fan of vented clutchbells. They seem to run cleaner and don't keep all the clutch dust trapped in the clutchbell.

Results may vary. I've heard others say they let outside debris and sand in, but this hasn't been my experience.

Is there a reason the car is dropping on price at Amain? Maybe a new car?

That's what I was wondering about with the vented bells. I like the idea of shoe debris being able to get out and cooler air getting in, but along with the cooler air comes the dirt & tiny rocks. It may just depend on the track and the type of dirt surface.
