johnbull I went to the thread you where talking about the Euro 2002. You made some good points.

Only one Hudy car in the A at the Worlds. Yoke had 3 cars and was the only company with 3 in A main. I would say pretty good job on that. Losi only had one car and Tamiya had 2 as did Associated and one HPI (not really HPI as it was a total prototype car) and one Hudy.

I would say the Yoke is still a car to deal with as is the TC3. Old or not they just flat out go fast and work well. At the level the Worlds are you still need a great car, driving alone will only do so much for you. If your car is junk even a great driver will struggle.

I was cool to see Tamiya win, even though I like Yokes and would like to see them win another World title.

Tossonlini was running the new top deck last Saturday at SoCal but nothing really earth-shaking to report.

Strangely, most every place around my area had been out of MR4TC Ė SP kits for months now but I donít know what to read into that. Iím starting to look into finally getting one but right now, no matter how much I may want to, I canít even find a new kit for when I get the money.

The real rumor (key word here is ďrumorĒ) that would effect Yokomo the most is the one going around for a couple months now that ROAR wants to somehow jam a one-way ban through. Either by putting it on the ROAR members rule ballot or by having the ROAR rules committee enact it without consulting the members. That would basically force Yokomo to package a new car, at least for the US market, since I donít think they would then continue to have a car that would become illegal for many sanctioned races as their lead product and then make everyone buy a front diff.

New optional parts for the SP will be released after the JMRCA 2002 (end of Sept 2002)

Mark, you can just run a locked front diff like the rest of the companies are, or will be doing soon. You can bet Associated and Losi are working on this. You probably see it before I do though since you are a SoCal racer.

The reason why when/if I decide to go Sedan Racing (part time of course, my first love will always be the Pan stuff), Iím interested in the Yoke is that through my friends, Iíve been able to race/drive a XXX-S, TC3 and MR4TC-SP. Out of that batch, the one that fits my Pan Car honed driving style the most is by far the Yoke. The XXX-S and TC3 are good sedans but well, they drive like a sedan. For me, the way you work the throttle and can expect the car to react with the Yoke most closely resembles what Iím used to.

Hi, you guys all sound like pros to me! I am a Electric R/C newbie. The kit I bought came with a radio but my racing buddy says that I should get a better one. What do you guys think I should get?

Thx.

Generally you should run the front diff tighter than the rear. If you run the front diff looser, it will make the car spin out easier, especially on power, but you will have more steering coming into a corner.

How many of you guys have starting using the dual diff set up on your yokes? I've personally stuck with the double one-way set up.
