Notes –

Ronald is running the motor mount from the previous MTC-2 for additional stiffness in the carbon chassis of his MTC-2R.  He is also using a stiffer top deck configuration using more screws.  Normally not found on his car, here at RC Addict he has Horizontal Body posts for the rear.  On his electrics he has a soon to be released high rev aluminium speedo fan from LRP for better cooling.  He is also using a booster connected to the motor fan to keep the voltage at a minimum of 8 volts.

New Kyosho TF8 due Summer release

The TITC has become the one of the biggest stages for manufacturers involved in the electric touring car market and in positive news for the category Kyosho are officially present in Bangkok with two prototypes of what is expected to be the new TF8.  The famous Japanese brand has not released a 1:10 Electric Touring Car for over 6-years, their last kit the TF7.7 being released at the end of 2017.  Yoshiyuki Chikuba, the Kyosho designer who worked alongside Christopher Krapp when Kyosho was a competitive brand in international touring car racing, showed us one of the prototype cars.  Being raced by team drivers Kota Kawakami and KO radio’s Yuichi Anahara, while unable to photograph the completely new car, Chikuba said the main design feature will be the shocks.  Pointing out that while they don’t look different externally, internationally they are something very special.  On the name logically he expects it to be called the TF8 but that is not official yet.  On a release date, it should be ready for release in early Summer.  In addition to the new Kyosho, Yokomo are here with a new car (we are working on permission for a Chassis Focus) and Ryan Maker is running a pre-production example of his very nice looking RC Maker SP1 touring car.
