Big Dog, noticed a few problems with the yoke sheet.

Firstly, all the outer holes on the rear shock tower for the camber link are not selectable.

Secondly, when you type in your speed control, and click in any of the text boxes, motor through comments, the ESC pops up in the motor turn box.

I already have my top deck

Downstops? Halleluja!

Yokomo needs a new chassis material. Something that works a little better in the heat and maybe a new belt material. That special chassis has got to go.

Awefully critical all of a sudden I seem to remember that the chassis material worked fine at the Novak race and Carpet Nationals

New car would be nice though.

Not critical just hmmmmmmm......truthful Both of those races were in doors. The car is struggling in the heat out this way. Yokomo should go back to the MR2 graphite chassis. The Yok is a good car but in the heat it's a different beast. I haven't seen a single special perform well on a weekly basis in stock or mod out doors or on the rug. Most guys keep going back to the MR4TCPRO. I might start designing the new car myself....LOL

Default Baker Edition?

Does anyone know if Yokomo made a Baker Edition? I know someone that is trying to sell it and he said that they only made like 60 of them and that they all have serial numbers. I haven't had a chance to see it yet but I just wanted to check on it with you guys.

Molded carbon fiber would be cool to see Would probably cost a fortune, but i would pay for it!

I would keep the current shocks (or go to tamiya stlye for a slight improvement) probably change the chassis material and make the chassis stiffer, add droop screws and revanmp the suspension geometry.
