I placed my digital switch in the same position as you did (I have TKI2), but where did you place your Transponder? I actually placed it UNDER the switch....I also cut the TKI2 box so that the rear battery pod is not longer there.

On the tki3 radio tray you mount the transponder under the switch, I had to trim the hole a little bigger on the rx box so the end of the ko propo switch would fit, mine is all done except the shocks because I'm waiting on some different pistons to get here thought I had some extras but I couldn't find them

Breaking the Kyosho. 3 spur gears, fixed with extended motor mount, maybe only needed at fear farm or similar tracks. 3 universals, known issue, went to 777, fixed on tki3. 2 arms, not blaming the car. Only took 2 gallons to go through outdrives. Gonna try agamas.

The rest is on truck. Wing mount, lead to a rear shock tower, ouch. And the center rear drive shaft is too thin to be that long. Bends easy. And even though im embarrassed about it, a wasted custom body because they cant put the cut lines in the right place.

What do you mean about the cut lines on the body? Which ones/where are they incorrect? I'm in the process of cutting out a body shell atm so any tips would be appreciated.

Don't you reckon 2 gallons is reasonable for outdrives? Think about how hard you get on the gas out of tight corners and how hard the engines these days pull and I reckon 2 gallons isn't too bad. How long do other brands' outdrives last?

Anyone experience bending their rear centre CVD before? Was doing my practice last weekend and running my race buggy (which have been running no more than 30 mins previously during the race) and after 2 tanks I realized that the rear centre CVD was bend and so was the plastic rear rod. I don't remember having any real bad jump or hitting anything hard. Kind of disappointed to see that happening. My bashing buggy is using the stock centre shaft and that buggy was driven more aggressive, tons of bad jumps and all but all are good.

Anyway, will be replacing them and I'm interested to try the CNC rear rod. Anyone using them? Hopefully that will prevent the CVD from bending again.

Interesting I had this issue with the rear CVD last weekend. The thing bend quite badly and yet I don't remember having any bad jumps or hitting anything hard.

My agama outdrives have lasted about a year with heavy use. Now they are shot to hell. I put Agama outdrives on the TKI 3 in the front and rear. I am using stock in the middle.

The body lines are right there is 2 sets of lines on the rear of the truck one line is for the st-r length chassis and the other line is for the st-rr chassis, the line closest to the rear is for the Evo

I dont think 2 gallons on the outdrives is awefull. It certainly not great though. Mugen lasted way longer. Hearing agama does too. They are cheap though so whatever. The cut line is on the very back of the body. There are two lines, you have to be somewhere between them I guess. I cut the back one and it was clearly long on a test fit, so I went to the shorter one and its way short, body trashed. PISSED.

And no offense taken. I do crash hard. Its what happens when you go really fast and then mess up. In all seriousness though. Im no noob. I would say top of the open class most days. The truck crash was ugly, not really blaming the truck. Its built solid. Drive shaft is a little scetchy but otherwise a tank. The buggy has been frustrating but the last couple times out its been good. We run on some big tracks out here and the cars take a beating. If you havent been here its hard to understand.
