rcethilon There isnt a really set length for them. People are usually around 60-62 mm total shock length. I personally run 60.5 in the front and 60.0 in the rear. Your length also depends on if they pre load the spring. You dont want to pick up the rear end and still have your springs compressed. That would cause ill handling effects. Hope this helps.

What was the job?

Yeah, shock lengths vary a lot. Somehow, Chris Tosolini managed to run 60.3mm shocks at the nationals using the lowe hole in the castor block! I have to use the long shock ends to do that, and the shortest I can make them is 63.2, which is why I mostly use the upper hole and short shocks, though I did have the lower hole drilled in my 3's.

Longer front shock = more steering, shorter rear shock = more rear traction. Sounds messed up, but it works that way for me, and several others I know.

was it los, I'm not totally sure, but it probably includes the 6 rear bulkhead screws (2 short ones in the back, medium ones in the middle and the long 35mm ones) I would go to Yokomo USA and send them an email just to be sure though.

Default Car for Sale. Email Me to Discuss. Fair Price.

Car for sale, will work out a fair deal for both buyer and myself, not trying to make a killing, just what's fair, StMedina@aol.com. Email if interested.

I guess the hard part is figuring the price on electronics.

Airtronics Servo, 94357
Novak XXL FM Receiver, 75 mhz
Novak C2, touring car.

We know what the car is worth, I generally when selling used rc stuff, give it the 50% just email to discuss how much of a discount I am selling electronics for.

Reason I am selling, am now racing full sized 2002 BMW M3, SCCA events, Yoke was just sitting there wanting to be driven, figured I would give somebody a car cheap. Email.

Aw Heck, $300, and will throw in a set of YokeDish's, Blue HPI Inserts, and New Tires, I have plenty of 138g's, Sorex, Take Off, so you will have a pretty good pick. Tires, Wheels, and Inserts are all new in package, heck, that's $40 bucks right there from Speedtech.

Has anyone used the new Tamiya dish wheels on either a PRO/WC Rep or SP ?

I'm keen on getting some(they're cheap) but don't know if the reinforcing ribs will hit the arms due to them extending past the hub carriers.

Yeah I used them on my sp, and yes they did hit the arms, so I took a little off the ribs. But this did make the wheel flex little more, so I only use that set of wheels/tires for practise. All my other wheels are Yok dish.

Did they hit the rear arms, front or both? 0 deg offset or 2 deg?

I've cut my rear arms so they are flush with the hub carrier, I didn't fancy trimming ribs after I pretty much ruined a few sets of older wheels.
Thanks for the help

Just touched the front arms, but really connected with the rears. This was when my car was stock out of the box.
