The Schuey titanium purple finished turnbuckles work great. I took 60mm and cut them down a 6mm. They have 53mm and smaller however they look to be sold out at Amain. I have them paired with AE small heavy duty ball cups.

Proline Predator body for the TLR 22 3.0 fits nicely from what I've seen. JC make a nice S2 as well.

For those of you that haven't seen RC Car Action's instagram photo of Maifield practicing for the Reedy Race he's now running for Yokomo. Epic setups for U.S. clay tracks should follow.

I've always liked Maifield. (was sad when he went Losi) but hopefully this will get a boost in interest in Yoke and maybe even get some more products stateside.

Yep, that guy can really wheel a car, and he is uber competitive.

Should make for an interesting Reedy race next week, and I'm really glad Yokomo signed one of the best US drivers to run thier 1/10th stuff. Hopefully, we'll see some close up pictures and set-up sheets from his rides.....typically, he doesn't post to much set-up stuff, but we'll see.

Anyone know if Lee Martin will run the Reedy race next week?

I'm going to guess that is the foam decal that goes in the rectangular box near the battery area - I don't use mine as I have some of the Yokomo weights that go there.

If it's not the foam decal, I'm not sure, unless it's the window decal kits for the body when you paint them.

About time. Should help Yokomo sales (I really hope it brings down some of the parts pricing) and hopefully gives us some more set up sheets.

I feel like I am the only one that runs a Yok in the area lol.
