I bought a back up CNC Agama motor mount. I have the black one right now made out of some other material. I have chewed up several bells because of those little screws. I was also using red thread locker.

This is the only piece from another car that I have on. Agama outdrives were also on my car when the TKI3 kits came with the bad ones. I happen to have all these parts and got lucky they fit nice because that was the car I used prior to the Kyosho.
We had problems with KH mount on rough tracks. It would loosen up and move. Try to locate some older mounts they are much shorter allowing to use a back up nut. These came from a Team Edition Kit

Default Differences between tki2 and 3??

Fellas without reading a couple hundred pages can you give me a quick rundown on the main differences between tki2 and 3 besides upperdeck, are there any reasons why you wouldn't buy a tki2?

Thicker 'HD' drive shafts, battery/servo tray, side guards, and subtely different front tower(honestly can't tell a difference though). Everything else is literally the same. You will be very happy with the TKI2 as it performs no differently than the TKI3. And if you want to upgrade those few parts, eBay chop usually offer a good bargains on those items.

Hi mate
The tki 2 had the thinner out drives
The shock towers are thicker and stronger on the tki3
As you mentioned the radio tray and side pods.
But the out drives were popping out the rear needs the thicker 93mm if you would like to run a wide rear track.
The fronts need the thicker 91mm shafts and all is good
Also the new type front arms with the bumps under the roll bar attachment
That's my experience with the tki2 And tki3
Good luck if you can get a good deal its worth every cent

I could not find the older mounts anywhere. Looks good! How is the BCE chassis working for you?

Don't see any advantage r disadvantage with the BCE car. Wear rate is about the same.

Shock towers front and rear are a little beefier on the tki3. Also the rear has an additional set of camber holes on the lower portion. Tki2 still solid tho

Aaron if you haven't already, check these guys out:

PT Racing Oils

IMO, even better than Mugen and Kyosho oils

+1000 on the PT oils, there are the most consistent and cst certified oils we have ever run and we have ran them all. Also they can make custom oil weights for you.

Good morning Darkone
Unfortunately the kyosho setup won't work on the very good sworkz setup you have on your car.
