That's also how it's been since the WC but it was never in the manual, only on a single page change/update to the TKI2 manual which was included with the WC kit.

Of course I don't notice that extra piece of paper until AFTER I was done w/ the TKI2 build.

I've been using the luns tit hinge pins throughout my kit without any breaks/bends. Have you had problems with them before?

Thanks mate for the pictures. I checked out Lunsford screw and they don't come with the 4x10mm button head screw. Do you need to order them separately? And Lunsford do not deliver to Singapore directly (sucks!).

I use luns tit screws throughout my whole kit including bottom of chassis. They are some damn strong/good screws and add a nice bling effect. Highly recommend them if you don't mind dropping the coin. They will out last the life of the kit as long as you use good hex drivers. I use mip/thorp drivers and have not looked back since.
I did use the Lunsford hinge pin and so far no issue with it but I've not done much racing with that kit though.

[QUOTE=aaron125;10776357]No problems mate, you're most welcome. It really was an awesome find, huh? Still can't believe I just stumbled accross it when I wasn't even looking for it. Serendipity at it's best!

I just called Australia Post and spoke with their tracking dept. people and it seems my TKI3 only left France couple days ago on the 23rd, so looks like I won't have it till sometime next week.


I think this Model Store is legit and you have got yourself a great bargain.

On a uk forum (Max Bashing) i have noticed that someone has received there TKI3 kit a few days ago and has stated that he paid 470 equals 580 Euros and also stated that he bought from the kyosho store.
He has also posted some pics so you can definately see it is a Tki3.

There is no chance that he has bought it from the uk because they are greedy and want over 600+ this is about $900+

But with that discount that is like a losi pro kit in the UK. CHEAP LOL.

So what we all have to think is Kyosho Kits and Parts, are they really that expensive or is it local hobby store's that are just winding the prices up.

Before anyone starts saying to go and buy another kit if you think they are too expensive that is not the case. But when you can find the same product over 150-200 about $200+ you start to question why.
Hopefully Aaron125 that was a great find

How was your race? Or is that next week? In either case I'm at the "The Big One" race at LCRC (Home of the 2012 Roar Offroad Fuel Nationals) this weekend. Today was practice and I got to run my brand new MP9 TKI3 e for the first time. This buggy is dialed!! I'm drinking the koolaid. Ryan Maifield w/ Jason from JConcepts, Billy Easton, Anthony Mazarra, and other factory drivers were there practicing. No Kyosho factory guys though

Working on a product that will prevent the spring slop from rubbing the shock bodies. What is the furthest anyone ever runs the spring compressing collar down the body? Front and rear would be useful. Ive got tki2/3 shock assemblys here. Just need some info from you guys. Also any info on the strr/evo truggy would be great as well. Looks like it uses the buggy rears as fronts and uses a longer for its rear.

Thanks
