If so, then the 2 x 1.7mm is better for bumpy conditions without big jumps, correct?

Also running 60 grams under the battery, be curious to compare the battery to what I run for weight diff.

Here is a very dumb question. Looking at the setup sheets for the DTM, it lists what I believe are the stock springs as a check box and another where you can write in what you are using. Is the setup sheet correct that the vehicle is using the Arena style "turf" springs out of the box?



How can you tell versus a regular green spring (one is shorter, etc)?

If that is the case, I wonder if maifields national setup is using orange YAS Springs on the rear or the YS A1175 springs.

Heck, the YS ones I have, maybe I should chuck those on instead.

Anyone know when there will be a new update to this car coming? I'm curious to see how Yokomo takes it further for dirt and clay.

As the car is pretty new as mentioned, at least for dirt, I think they could offer a full on stand-up "dirt" edition of the vehicle out of the box. Yes you can but the conversion parts, but it is nice to have a full version all in a kit.

That or the conversion on the DTM so the stuff that was DTM specific that the conversion doesn't replace you get all in one box.

I understand your want, but Yokomo has had a car with a stand-up MM for several years now. This car was engineered specifically to offer a true, from the ground up mid-motor car with an ultra low center of gravity and if people want to go BACK to running a patchwork MM car, there's a full version of that car already offered by Yoke.

While they do have all the parts required to convert it, I don't think it's fair to expect a ready made conversion kit for it.

Personally, I really enjoyed figuring out how to get this superb design to do on dirt what it does on all artificial surfaces and once you get there, there is no way you'd want to Frankenstein it up.

I've used 3x1.4 rear pistons in lieu of 2x1.7's in another buggy and loved them. This was on smoother indoor clay tracks and I felt like they had great damping like the 2x1.7 but wouldn't chassis slap as much on large jumps. However, I learned on real dirt off-road tracks that had a lot of ruts the pistons really packed up and made my buggy a little loose in the rear on throttle. This was outdoor on holeshots with a rutted track. Thought the 3x1.4 would work better there but it didn't. Granted this track also runs 8th scale buggies so probably wasn't the smoothest

yeah that fits my track as far as roughness goes.

For those who bought that shim kit from shapeways, I talked to the manufacturer and they may make the shims to go over the rear hanger versus using regular shims in a revision to work better with the DTMs rear ballstud mount setup.
