Default Shock oil

Anyone know a good Losi shock oil weight for the TKI? My Track is Trax 70 if you've ever heard of it.......its hard, pretty flat, some big jumps, and a rough section or two wit some technical stuff.

In sweden the price will be around 7500SEK, thats 1000$ and atm the std TKI costs 8500SEK=1150$ and the SE is around 5000SEK=700$
That should give you an idea.

(ofc Swedish prices are much higher but the relationship between TKI, TKI2 and SE should give you an idea of US price)

uhh, and yeah, i hope you guys get why we buy things from the US.....

I have to tell you, I do not advise mixing and matching clutch parts. Kyosho has a very good clutch, and if you do anything unusual, it can cause problems. Many people that I help have tried to use different parts only to have issues. All they had to do is go back to the standard clutch parts and it was perfect again. The tolerances are very close and the designers and racers work hard to get it just right, and our clutch is National Champion this year, so why mess with it?

I can tell you that the new silver shoes (IFW339) last longer, more than double the life of the blue aluminum shoes. You can use them, then remove and debur the edges with a file and reinstall them. Just run them until the spring rubs on the bell, they last a long time. If you are careful removing the springs you can also reuse them, but you can't bend or stretch them at all.

Hi Wilson. We have boiled the wings before, and it helps quite a bit.

Please don't shoot the messanger, this was just an IPOD conversion of funds. I am assuming these are MSRP prices....
FYI for those asking

Pit Pop - You might have some input to this back at Kyosho and this is just an idea. But coming off of rookie year going into my second year, I would love if Kyosho provided some kind of set up dvd to help those who bought these top quality MP9 kits. It just might help some of us rookies set up the car and stand a better chance of putting the car out front. Here on the east coast there are not many Kyosho drivers at my local track to help with car set up. 0 to be exact. I have earned the sole Captain Kyosho title at our track. Any hints or tips on how to do set ups would be awesome. Hoping maybe you can take that message up the ranks for us MP9 owners to the brass at Kyosho.

Thank you for your possible consideration of this request.

Ya vie tried the kyosho shoes and another 4 kyosho guys two sponsored and none of us run the stick shoe, it lasts..about 3 qualifiers then one shoe for me always starts to stick, I file the sides down, use the small shoe washer everything and they get hung up. I can see 110% using the Kyosho flywheel, collet, clutch bell & nut but the shoes shouldn't cause any problems unless you don't drill them the correct diameter, then you will have problems, I've seen guys use the kyosho clutch all the time on AE buggys and truggys for the ease of getting parts.

If anyone needs kyosho clutch shoes I have a bag of shoes ranging from a race or two on them to one qualifier and new if your interested send me a PM, most of them are the silver shoes too.

I run 40wt losi in the front, 30wt in the rear losi oils, and my difffs are 7k front, 7k center, 3k rear, and put my steering turnbuckles the furthest back on the Ackerman plate. Doing the 7k in the front and the turnbuckles I gained too much steering off power lol, with the right tires it balances it out for a perfect set up for a tight technical track, I run on a med size bumpy, few bigger jump track with good traction with caliber m4 & gridiron SS or S.

Thanks for the input guys! I'll definitely stick to the Kyosho clutch. And I'll give the 40 up front and 30 rear a try.

Ya I really like the 40wt up front, 35wt for a smoother flat track, and in the rear 30wt is good I have 35wt in the rear on my SE "standard" buggy and that seems good, I thinking about going with 30wt the rear sesmed a little loose.

Thanks for replying pitpop.

And I have little stupid question here, do fuel line arrangement could affect engine performance?
