I think the normal measurement is total length, top of shock cap to bottom of balljoint.

Hi to all Yokomo's rider... Are you guys use shims to reduce slops or not? I'm not using any shims and my car is unstable at the straight-line. Anybody has same problem....??

Right now I have got new arms on it, so I've left it. Eventually I'll probably shim it up...You should at least try...

Any differences in handling?? Does it makes the car more oversteer/understeer??

I have shimmed the front arms/bulkhead but I need to do the front hub carrier/front arm as there is slop there.
I shimmed the new rear arms/toe in block and that worked out sweetly.
Just as long as everything still moves smoothly and falls under it's own weight(without shock attached), no problem.

Did anyone let Johnbull know about the change to rctech.net. I don't have his email but if anyone does, please let him know. I am sure he would appreciate it. Thanks. I am also selling my Yokomo MR4-TC Special, it is on eBay right now. My email is taylanaltop@hotmail.com if anyone has any questions about it. I only ran it a few times and it is perfect. I am selling most of my stuff because I moved and I need some money. Thanks for all the help with the car, especially Speedo and Kentech. Thanks guys.

That's sad that you are selling Ty, maybe when you get a bit more money you can start racing again. Yeah, johnbull is on here. Adam (mr-4/yr-4 malta) let him know.

Yes.....I'm back!!!! Tough luck!

I only got to know about the change through word of mouth. Are all the old guys here.

Darkside - what would we do if we couldn't argue F1. Oh by the way Congrats on Schuie's No 4. Last year he won without the best car. This year, with the best car he just ran away.

I've been playing with weight distribution on the special. I put my 10 grams of lead up front, held in place with the front bumper screw, and turned the servo through 90 degrees so that it moves further forward. The improvement in steering is impressive.

The championship out here starts on the 30th September and the track is always busy with guys practicing already. Should be a great year. Shame we are heavily outnumbered with Yokes. TC3s outnumber us three to one.

Motorcycle GP this weekend. Should be good.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
i think this will answer your question ^^^^^ he posted on this thread
