Or he has been lucky since and not stripped another one.....

It has been said before. Get that guy an aluminum servo horn! There is no reason not to run one!

Here's what I also love about top level pro drivers. Elliott Boots is driving like a bat out of hell in practice and qualifiers. Probably has a setup that is too fast for 99.9% of the drivers out there, but he is still fast as seen here:

But then by the time the semi hits, he's figured out his setup, has the buggy dialed, smooths out his driving taking less risks, being more consistent, and just as fast. Insane

Boots running light blue up front and orange TQ'd the world's, won the nats its the only spring combo he uses

he also runs higher wt oils in the front because he hits the jumps hard and track pipes alot(uses them to get round corners)

Probably don't need to replace the diff case/seal, unless yours is gone. Pretty sure it's the same part, but someone else might have a better idea. Just get a couple of plastic spurs. I heard they are pretty easy to strip if you slap it.

Driving me nuts. Im ready to make the change to Kyosho but if I go buy a kit now and new one comes out right after Ill flip the F out. Any rumors of a new kit? Seems odd that Amain keeps dropping the price.

I am still new to Kyosho so I dont know how they go about the unveiling of a new buggy. I very highly doubt a new car is coming. I just bought a new tki3 and even if a new car were to be released it would not bother me one bit. With all the new kits that are out there tki3 is still a major force to be reckoned with. The car just flat out works.

If there were a new kit coming you would see the pro guys with prototype parts and with cars that don't look like what you and I have. Boots just won with a buggy that looks just like mine except for the 2 new aluminum parts Kanai just made. Price drop is just because of the RTR on the way.

When Kanai posted pics of the new parts on his facebook, he posted a message with the pics that said basically No new car, just some new parts

There was a black Friday special back in November where the price was $799, so just shows you they can sell it for under $800.

The car is awesome, absolutely no regrets here. Pull the trigger. Best car on the planet!
