Kyosho TF-5 Onroad Car

I couldn’t find a Kyosho TF-6 anywhere, but I found a TF-5 online, so I bought it. I also added some new Kyosho shocks. Made a custom battery tray to hold a shorty pack, and headed out to CVRC Raceway in Chula Vista, CA for some practice laps.

The car was pushing, so I added softer front shock springs and stood the front shocks up one hole on the tower. The car was dialed!

Next, I will be experimenting with some different gearing options, but it’s hard to imagine the car getting much better. They don’t make ’em like this any more!
