Use the 93H up front and the 91H on the rear. Its perfect like this.

In fact the 91H up front sits nice and deep in the cup anyway so its just an extra precaution to run the longer ones up front

Just switched up from my Mugen MBX6R to a TKI3 and I raced it for the first time this weekend with a provided set up by a local fast guy. 3 heats of 1/8 .. first qual the local fast guy (first time at this track) TQ'd .... 2nd qual I TQ'd him by 4 seconds. The both of us were driving the same car however he was running Orange springs front and rear I had Gray front and Blue rear.

I must say ... with all these chassis almost having a fine line run through them I was strongly sticking with my Mugen and just working with set ups here and there. But after this weekend and what the Kyosho did for me Im a FIRM believer in this car.

Mugen is a good car no doubt about it but this Kyosho is amazing.

There is a huge difference between sprung and unsprung weight. If tracks have high traction, usually you are doing whatever you can to take traction away from the buggy and free it up, because there is more than enough traction from the surface and tires.

Honestly, everyone should forget these option parts exist till after the worlds. Why discuss it and give others who are less apt at figuring out chassis dynamics a helping hand heading into Argentina? Kyosho guys aren't the only ones who read these threads. Just my two cents.

Buggy feels GREAT!!! I ran Proline Tazers Soft with Black AKA inserts ribbed. Car was on rails for the main ... go hard or go home and well 9 minutes into the main I went to go big on some double doubles and cased the fence. Snapped the front arm was in 2nd behind local fast guy ... go hacked in the first lap by a rear car jumping a lane and a turn marshals too scared to flip the damn car over.

The Mugen boys have been experimenting with this idea for months now.

I had the same thing happen to me 2 weekends ago, practice at another track. A kid (really too young to be out corner marshalling) so I said something on the drivers stand out loud, but not bad. And the kids dad was standing beside me. He said that was his son. Like I said I didnt cuss or say anything nasty. I still felt bad for talking out loud.

Great, this isn't a "new concept" at all, but it doesn't mean we need to offer up any more info to the competition, that's all I'm saying. And their solution looks like a backyard hack job. Ours looks Kyosho-proper.

I guess I'm just old school and would want to hold everything as close to the chest as possible to gain any slight advantage heading into a race as big as the worlds. Like I said, my two cents.
