I doubt you'll be over, I ran mine like that for a while before going to Tebo's routing. I never tech'd above 124.

Hey Coach,

I routed the fuel line like yours but when they did a fuel test I failed, so had to cut it much shorter. Maybe it's because I'm not using the stock kyosho filter (but I doubt it). Will be interesting to know if you pass yours. Do share with me if you do any test and pass. I can at least double check with them next time or switch back to Kyosho filter.

Added: Sorry I just realized I'm also not using Kyosho fuel line but the Fioroni one which is slightly thicker.

I've tried running on L tread with the 91mm shaft on my bashing buggy without any problem. Did you shim them from the inside? I put 2 shim on the inside. Now I'm back with the S tread.

For the front, people at my track like to use the 93mm to prevent the shaft from popping out. I've been using the 91mm one for my bashing buggy without any problem though, just make sure you shim on the inside. The Spec A version which is factory build surprisingly did not put any shim on the inside, just 2 or 1 shim on the outside.

For my race buggy, i'm using the Kyosho Light Weight Front Universal Swing Shaft (90.7mm) KYOIFW333. Can't pass you the URL as amain is down for maintenance

The only reason I wanted to run a L tread width is that its just what Im used to with the TKI1. But Im finding even when I set it up for a S tread width the dog bones are only just in the diff drive cup? Im sure when its all setup and shocks are on it should be sweet. Im guessing that I need to run the 93mm outdrives to achieve a L tread width?

Actually this is the better choice as it is equal to MP9 92mm shaft which is the perfect length for all adjustments on the rear. They will also fit on the front but some have reported that there is understeer under power due to the different design of the shaft (uni is about 1.5mm in compared to MP9 axles)
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ng-Shaft-907mm

I am constantly surprised why Kyosho have not yet produced the 92mm long/3.5mm thick shafts yet cause if they did there would no longer be problems and confusion with the shafts like there is now. They would work on the front and rear with all settings. Must be a "business" thing, the way it is now they sell twice as much shafts AND all the old 777 shaft stock. At least it keeps up the post count in this thread,

Any thoughts on BCE chassis for the TKI 3?

By the way my 93mm driveshafts for the front with the Agama outdrives work great. I never put in the outdrives that came with the kit just the center ones are Kyosho. Maybe I should call and get new ones for fear of breaking.

Kyosho sends out front and rear replacements only. I have never heard of a center issue yet. I just saw a 2nd older tki2 outdrive break on an experienced racers buggy 2 weeks ago. Made me think I'll stay with agama units for life of this car

Do any brand clutch bells fit the MP9?
IN a bit of a bind, have one ordered, but wont be here before the weekend.
I have a Xray, and a few other random ones at home, but thought I read somewhere that the stock MP9 ones are a slightly different design?

Any 32mm flywheel will fit.

OFNA (OFN65028)

Hot Bodies (HBSC8029)

Pro-Tek (PTK-7000)

All very good. I myself toggle between the HB and the ProTek depending which is in-stock when I need one.

Awesome thanks for your help guys! appreciated. I started the new TKi3 build on Wednesday at 3pm and worked on it till 11pm, then 6 till 12 on Thursday and Im only halfway through the build!!haha I forgot how long (and sometimes tiring) building a new kit can be. I guess it pays to take your time with diffs etc. I wonder what the record time is for completing a kit?? start to finish?

I bought all the spares necessary to run the Cody King loose dirt setup, but I think I might try the Dirt Nitro challenge setup from the FARM. Anyone tried both setups, be keen to hear how they compared. Cheers
