My first race day with the TKI 3 is behind me. My experience with this buggy was a thrill. A few new buggy issues like screws coming out and meshing. Other than that the build held up great. The Agama Front and Rear Outdrives with the Kyosho center outdrive combo worked out just fine. I don't know if my buggy came with the bad outdrives, but I did not want to risk it. The buggy just drives awesome and very nimble in all turns. Great acceleration with the OS SPEED and 2090 pipe. I really love the way this buggy drives. I came from driving an Agama. Agama has done a great job with the A8. I just think that it requires more effort to drive. The Kyosho was just so simple to take through all the obstacles. The only thing is the violent nose dive at slower speeds off some jumps. I have also noticed that the buggy does wear some. I can't wait to go back out there.

I've had the chance to borrow a friends TKI2 for the past few races and i'm really impressed with car. It's responsive,smooth, and planted without sacrificing steering. He runs the latest version of the BCE chassis on it also. After 4 years with Losi, i plan on making the switch

I run them in my buggy, I run 30f 25r with dark green springs all around. They are the softest springs kyosho offers, well yellow rears are a step softer. I like them so far, they don't fully stop the bottoming out but they do help that more than the 1.3x8's. My spring choice also aids bottoming out, I like to run softer spring setup than most. Even when I run the 1.3x8's I use orange springs all around 45f-30/32.5r. Only time I really liked the feel of the light blues all around was on a hard packed blue groove track.

Next time at the track I am going to try orange springs all around with the fioronis with the same oils 30f/25r...

I spent the entire past year driving an Agama A8 2011 Edition. This buggy was bullet proof. It never broke any plastics and I by no means am the greatest of drivers. The shafts and outdrives lasted an entire year. I also had a good amount of races on it. The TKI 3 has some discoloration of the gunmetal on some of the wheel hexes. The gunmetal (aluminum) is rubbing off the shock body. The bottom of the chassis looks like its been raced plenty more than once. I guess its just the anodizing that is rubbing off. I took a look at the pins on the uni-shafts and they look a little indented. The plastic radio box has lost its shine, glossy look to it on the sides. This is just my observation.

I still think this is the best buggy I have driven. I have only had 2 to other inlcuding a MBX5R and the A8. The drivetrain on the TKI 3 is the smoothest I have ever felt. We have aluminum everywhere where it's important. The diff gears still look great. Everything is very functional just some wear. Tell me what you think about the car.

Good luck on getting a Tebo setup; I have heard his posted setups are not even remotely close to what he runs.

Later,

Later,
Based on all the pictures of his buggy at the big races, the non-fluid settings seem pretty similar from race to race.

Cody tends to post more set-ups than Jared, so it would be really neat if Paul would post his ROAR setup on here soon

The tracks I run at have very similar dirt and surface conditions.
