I used the pills to get 3.5 rear toe in.. For 4 degree should require the alu hubs for additional 1.0 toe

They will be 79.95 plus shipping there will be no Mark up on shipping just what it costs. I am one to two weeks out on the first batch. I will post more pics of just the chassis when they are completed to go with the earlier pics. I have two more weeks of racing on the prototype the Short Course Truck is still undefeated and the Stadium Truck has a Win and A Second under its belt. I can give complete details on the full conversion as well with the purchase of a chassis it is very simple.
Put me down for a stadium truck conversion please

The pills are simple once you understand the numbers.
Lets take 0-h2 for an example. In any given circumstance the car is in the "0" OR the "h2" setting and it refers only to anti squat.
With the front of the pin in the low position the cars anti squat is 0 degrees.
With the front of the pin in the High position, (h) its anti squat is 2 degrees.
Just think of the "h" as High pin and no "h", low pin.

Has anyone changed the plastic servo horn for the steering to a aluminum one? I'm debating about changing mine.

I'm able to successfully run an xray servo saver on mine just needed to run the servo saver straight up and just slightly dremel about a half millimeter for clearance on the right side where the horn barely touched the front chassis brace.

Xray savers are ultra strong with zero slop so I like to use them just to eliminate any possible DNFs from servo failure.

First race with the yokomo and got the "W" .. with a hard fought battle with Mark. Love the corner speed and how precise the car can be driven. Can't wait till I get my machined pistons

Is the the rb6 slipper eliminator compatible with the yz2? Either the exotek or the schelle one?

Thanks

Tried and tested the yokomo horns.. As I have both the 23/25 splines as I was using it for the onroad bd7 2014 black edition.

Unfortunately it does not fit well as it will hit the bell cranks. That was why I opted the tlr ones.

Never try., never know.. Cheers!!

The exotek is the only one I have found to fit. You need to use a 2mm spacer behind it though to clear the motor plate.

3rd club race tonight finished 4th getting better. For loose dry conditions the yok needs a lot more weight. Added the yok weights in battery tray, 27/ 30 rear/front oil w/ machined 1.6 pistons. Kyosho pinks/whites rear/front. Rear hubs moved forawrd and rear shocks top in and bottom in. Next is Ricket RC brass rear hinge pin holders. Also the front end is way to twichy need to find the right direction to tame it.
