I've been wanting to try a Yok since April of 2000, and for one reason or another I haven't. The closest I came was the end of last summer when I actually had one but didn't take the radio out of my Losi...

I just ordered the MR4SP from my local shop, it should be in by Thrusday or Friday... I'll probably run the Losi this weekend, but after that I'm definitely putting the SP to work.

I'm really looking forward to this...

I just finished my SP, and I'm curious about something... does anyone know the equivalent for the "450" shock oil included in the kit?

Thanks,

Trips

I always assumed it was something like 45, but I'm probably totally wrong. I never used it in either of my Yoke kits.

I raced my new SP Saturday night and Sunday, the car is fast but so unstable that it's almost frightening to drive.

Any tips on where to go from the stock SP setup to get the car into a more comfortable feel, or should I just get rid of the oneways and put a solid center shaft and a regular diff up front?

Thanks,
Trips

what tires are you using???
I suggest you use Sorex 36R with Sorex Type B Medium Insert for better handling

It was a bit cool on Saturday night, I ran Sorex 32R with Yokomo 037M medium inserts on Yokomo dish rims. I also ran some TakeOff 27's which worked a bit better for the mains as the temperature was getting cooler.

There seems to be some problems with Sorex tires around here... My 32's seemed to blister the tread after just one run, and it was a cool night and the track wasn't even warm. Another driver ran a new set of 32's and one of them lost a strip of rubber and the belt was showing again on the very first run.

Let's hope that Yokomo is working on a new car cause that thing looked terrible this weekend at the Reedy Race. Masami looked fast as always but their were other driver's that were fighting the car all weekend. I saw a few guys run the MR4TC PRO instead of the Special.

Trips, you might want to try the camber link mods. If you haven't heard of them, what you do is use a ballstud on top of the kingpin int he front castor blocks (part number ZR-007) Most people use the outer hole on the tower to mount the link when using this mod.

In the rear, you cut a bit off the top of the rear hubs and mount the ballstud vertically, again probably using the outer hole on the tower...I forget how much you are supposed to cut off.
