Ok i just wanted to make sure the holes were same because the servo tray and receiver box are a little different. If i didnt have this spare chassis i would get the fioroni. I hate keeping a watch on my droop because of the droop screws digging in the chassis. Where is a good place to get the fioroni chassis ?

Just purchased a TK3 off of a friend Sunday night. Ran it for the first time today at local track, LOVING IT. Had a lot of faith in my Mugen but after many set ups and attempts to get it to work for me its just not the car I need to be driving.

I know of a few people that switched from a 6R to the tki3 and have gotten faster and just love the handling of the Kyosho. I'm one of those people

I see you're in LA. Which track is your local track?

Hard trigger to pull, but pulled it anyway. One on the way.

Which one of King's setups is the one you guys are using as a starting point?

As jpz_67 said... "you won't regret it."

Most guys around here are running Cody's IFMAR setup.

You're going to need these parts to complete:

1.3 x 8 hole white pistons on all four (not the kit pistons which have the tapered holes). You probably already have these for your XB9

The kit comes with the IF346-09 shock bladders which are real thin and flat. Cody, Sean and most others are running the IF346-03 bladders. I've tried them both and had good results. The kit bladders (-09's) were collapsing until Sean (AZRC4Me) told me to build them with 0% rebound then they worked great. I'm actually switching back to them for some track conditions as they seemed even more responsive than the -03's.

You may also consider the 93mm HD rear universal driveshafts. The kit comes with 91mm HD on all four but Cody's IFMAR setup above calls for a narrow track width in the rear and a wide track width in front, so we all run these 93mm HD shafts in the front as it reduces the risk of snapping off the outdrive cups due to the wider track width.

One last recommendation is the Proline MP9 Bulldog Body. It adds the downforce you'll need and the durability you'll want. At $20 a pop you can buy 3 of them for the price of the optional K body.
I'm just sayin...

ditch the droop screws get the plastic rear hubs and use the wheelbase spacers, run the 2mm in the front and 1mm in the rear, before you ask it has to be these spacers its not specifically the thicknes but the thickness and diameter in unison which works, but once installed no more droop screws!

There are spacers supplied with the plastic shock parts. Fit them to the shaft under the piston so they bottom out in the shock body. I think it's in the instructions somewhere.
