Does anyone else raise the prices due to the worlds.......
I don't think kyosho would raise the price it's probably just stores trying to make a few extra bucks

WOW, Amain also raised the price of the SE kit....... and from Sunday morning to Sunday night I seriously doubt that price increase came from Kyosho.

I'm trying to replace the rear shock cases from long to medium on my TKI just like they are used on the Standard and TKI2 editions. Anyone know if these are the right lengths?

61mm Shock Cases

you'll need:
- IS-105-01V Kyosho 55mm Medium Length Velvet Coated Big Bore Shock Bodies
- IFW-149-02 Kyosho 3.5mm Rear Shock Shaft (ST-R) (2)
- IFW-408 Kyosho CNC Medium Length Rear Shock Tower

the 61 mm shock case is the long rear version from the TKI & ST-RR
the 55 mm shock case is the medium rear from the SE and & MP9e and the front for ST-RR
the 47 mm shock case is the front for all mp9 buggies

Congrats to the King team!!! Very, Very, happy for you both. How awesome you guys must feel.

Congrats to Joe P. and Tebo also, you guys had everybody on the ropes! And congrats to Mark Pavidis, AKA, and the rest of the Kyosho crew for pretty much dominating the worlds with such a stacked field.

Hey guys, my bro just purchased a kyosho Se a few weeks ago. He is currently running the stock setup and he feels that the rear end is a bit loose. He would like to make the car more stable to fit his driving style of driving hard into the corner and gunning out of it. What do guys recommend as far as setup goes that he should do? We mainly run at Thunder Alley and Palm Desert Raceway. Both of which are hard, and dry tracks. They both provide excellent traction.
