Waterballoons last about 10x longer than stock rubbers and cost infinately much less. We're talking $0.02 per unit
Hahaha... Very well played sir...

I used the blues on my front with 700cst oil and gray springs and the blacks in the rear with 400cst oil and light blue springs at the recent C-Netic challenge. The car handled great. It's just my engines that kept stalling and my drivin was crap.

Track was large, lots of jumps, surface felt like terra cotta with lots of dust getting blown over it.

Damn you got to run at C-Netic. I'm so envious. It's the most amazing track I've ever seen. And watching Savoya attacking the jumps... crazy. If only McBride had not run into problems.

Hi everyone,

Just asking a question to you guys. Any recommendation for a shock piston brand? Really make me confused when i have to choose between Fioroni, CSI and Kyosho (1.3x6) (1.3x8) (1.4x8).

Thanks

Quick question about the plastic spacers that go under the diff uprights. I have a 13t losi clutch on my Werks B5 and If I run the spacers the clutch bell rubs against the upright and binds. If I move the pinion away from the spur the mesh is way, way too loose. Are the spacers necessary?

Finally got to run my new to me MP9 TKI2 WC and I am so happy I decided on this platform. I also just put all of the TKi3 upgrade parts on it which makes things a bit more tidy on the electronics side. It is a great car to drive, does exactly what I want it to.

I am pretty new to the tki3 but the car is really good out of the box. I swapped the kit pistons for 8 x 1.3 tapers and felt the car was even better. I would stick with the kyosho pistons unless you are just wanting to try something different. If thats the case and you can find them I would get the fioroni.

Ohhhh Yes...C-Netic was awesome. The track is like nothing else, and the organizers did a banging job. My only disappointment (apart from sucking mightily) was not seeing Kyle in the final -- who I think would have made the A even more exciting.

Reno's style is something to behold as well. Very aggressive with his car, and doing crazy things with his car in the air. Most amazing is that there was little difference in his driving from start to finish, considering the tires he was on. After the race they looked like racing slicks! For a pic of that, check out my twitter (@denislucindo).

No doubt that the stock pistons are very good. But it's also clear that the pistons are the part of rc cars which have changed little over the decades. Compare full-scale shocks and motocross shocks with ours, and you'll see the huge disparity.

One reason we don't see the big names running these option shocks is that they're often constrained by their kit sponsors from doing so.

I've tried the stock, CSI and Fioroni on my k car and Serpent, and have found that I like the CSI's best. With the fioronis, you have to run them with thin oils, and in the hot weather we have here, the oils thin considerably between start and finish.

Next up I'll be trying C2 pistons made by a former motorcycle rider in Italy named Tiziano.

Default breaking the cherry

Me an my friend went to FRC FLOWOOD RC TRACK IN FLOWOOD MS. to break the cherry on our new tki3s. I came from racing losi 8ights. O MY GOD, WE LOVE THE KYOSHO TKI3! THIS BUGGY TURNS AND HANDLES LIKE NO OTHER!!!!!!!!. I JUST WASTED MONEY BUYING TOY LOSI 8IGHTS, RACE ROLLERS AND GOT SPOILED WITH THEM. NOW I GOT A BIG BOY 1/8 buggy, a real race car!!!!! This buggy turns,handles,flies.
FRC, had a jconcepts clash race there back in july i think, but the track still has that layout from the big race. So I don't feel bad about getting 2nd place to a guy that races there every weekend, and I have not had my hands on a nitro sence march and have not raced for 3 months. My tki3 was stock book setup with 1.3 x 810 pistons and aluminum spindles. 45 wt ft,30 in the rear. We took some droop? 27mm ft ride height 29mm rear. The buggy wasI great. The end!!!!!!

Ok I skimmed thru as many of the almost 800 pages as I can handle lol. Just a quick question. I have a tki2 converted to brushless. I'm new to R/C. Was parts should I keep on hand in case of breakage?
