Yes, the TK10 is actually a light car. Maybe under or exactly 1700 grams

might as well go for GPM products! Total cost would definitely be cheaper, and one will surely have a alloy/carbon MTX-3 just like this one.

modeller, show us how you do the analysis if you don't mind.

You are right, it is static load. It uses colours to show the stress points of each part so you can make changes to mimimise high stress areas. In theory this should make the part stronger and more impact resistant also.
I dont want to show what Im working on at the minute but I will definately upload images in the near future.

How heavy is this car out of the box ? 2 kg ?
The rear lower wishbones wont fit. The MTX3 are slightly longer. The hingepins on the Tk10 are further apart. All the other wishbones and hubs are capable of being changed.

good luck with your work, hope you won't have any computer problem this time when you are ready to publish your findings.

Shouldnt have. Got a P4 2.8Ghz processor with 1.5gigs ram and 512meg separate graphics card with 200gigs hd now. All brand new.

Guess you missed the stuff you are talking about. I did have it uploaded to the old domain.

Gone now. I forgot to renew the hosting at the end of last year.

To keep this on topic. Anyone notice the rear anti-sway bar. Its solid and cant be adjusted.

I don't know...the car is a little pricey, but for what you get and maybe a side purchase for a differential, I cannot see any other parts someone would need to buy unless a person has a large wreck. Over time I think the car will pay for itself. I'm sure the threadlock bill will be a little high for the year j/k however, no need to buy new bulkheads because they are worn from being taken apart or splitting knuckles at the pivot ball locations from "tapping" boards.

I know the magazines say that the basic layout is of the Mugen MTX-3. Did Technokit upgrade/update the current MTX-3 set-up or just aluminize the MTX-3? (meaning: an evolution of the MTX3 or the super Kawahara version of the Prospec?)

Got a good look around one last Sunday. For the price I really hope the standard of the kit gets better.

Missing parts, parts fitting too tight etc....

The steering arms are so tight on the balls that a standard servo wont move them. Other than these couple of bad points the car is a work of art.
