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.
My sentiments exactly about the K car!

At last sunday's race I wasn't able to make the qualis (soccer dad duties), and was entered only as a "guest" into the A-mains, which put me last at 11th on the grid. I flamed out at the start, which put me a lap down to everyone, but managed to get up to second. The track had fluffy, sticky grooves of garden soil forming, which was giving everyone trouble, but not my K car. I was on the tail of the leader for about 3 laps, and not pushing to get past him as I was on;y a "guest" that day, but with him standing beside me on the stands, I'd jokingly say to him "Dude, can I pass you?" I finally did pass him when he took a wide line on one of the corners, and was less than a lap down with 3 minutes to go, when...i busted a conrod.

My biggest thing about the TKI is that although its very responsive, it allows me to settle the car easily when its at risk of getting unsettled. Oh sorry, my biggest thing is that meshing the gears perfectly is easy compared to the serpent I came from, and the resulting smoothness of the drivetrain makes you fall in love with it. If the drivetrain were a girl, we'd have been married yesterday.

sorry should of been more specific, yes the spacers go inside the shocks under the piston to reduce downtravel, it has to be the spacers used to shim the rear hub for wheelbase as its the thickness plus the diameter that holds the piston at the right point in the shockbody, I cannot tell you what it does to the handling as i built my car this way from the off on recommendation from the team guys, do it dont do it makes no difference to me but it might be worth a try

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.

well it seems the cat is already out the bag.....

Interesting to see the setting of the upper arm on the hub carrier.

Looking forward to going to the worlds race with the best car in the world. Kania did a great job on the hubs weights as usaully first class work can't wait to try them.

I'm always on these forums - just because I'm not posting doesn't mean I'm not reading Unfortunately, no, I'm not making the trip - I'm not quite at that level...yet 2014 and 2016 are circled on my calendar.

Helps calm the rear end down - lowers the roll center and slows the roll reaction down.

Hey Don, didn't know you were going through that! Hope you're doing better and winning the fight! Congrats to you and Dylan on the Nevada Champs, and best of luck to you guys down in Argentina!

Marshaling should be as important as racing. It can cost you the race ... sometimes I feel as if tracks shouldn't let some people marshal 1/8 just due to the danger. But those willing to risk their well beings need to marshal I usually marshal other 1/8 heats or Mains just for the sake of showing others what the hell are marshal is supposed to do.

I agree with you on that one. I drive VERY aggressivly and this TKI3 doesnt allow me to do so. It allows me to drive within the the cars needs and track conditions. Which could be a good or bad thing for some but for me works perfect. My Mugen allowed me to drive it the way I wanted to but when un settled it was a lost cause to try to get it back to where I needed it to be.

LOL at the last portion of your post

Hello Guys,

I have been driving the TKI3 for about 6 months. The only thing I have replaced has been the Center Front Uni Shaft. The pin was a little worn for my taste. I have two sun gears in the diffs that have small chips on them. 1 small chip on each. Its like the stainless part is not there and some black is exposed. Doesn't to affect performance, but should I change it?

My sentiments exactly! If I try and overdrive it, bad things happen. When I stay within the limits of the track conditions my lap times improve dramatically.

Hey guys,

Few questions,
1-Do you guys use the stock TKI3 diaphragms or the IF346-03?
2- the shocks limiter washer thing, how many mm, and why since youll have less droop ?

Cheers

Ali
