Steering slop
Go back a page(or 2) and read the post I made about replacing the two silver ballstuds used in the SP steering(servo arm to bellcrank).
I replaced all the plastic rod ends and ballstuds before selling my car and the steering was fine, other than the two new silver ballstuds.
Ditching them and replacing with the shorter black ones used elsewhere in the steering minimised the problem.
It makes a big difference!

Also buy the Yokomo shim set and use it. With the stiff SP rear arms, Graphite fronts and correct shimming throughout the suspension, it improved the car.

Our carpet track is opening in 2 weeks, and mod sedan will now be using foam tires for the first time. Any suggestions on what foam tires to buy? Has anybody tried the Yokomo foams?

ckh1328 Yokomo has just put in new shocks like the Tamiya shocks. The o rings are in a cartridge that unscrews at the bottom of the shock for easier re-building. The new part number is YS-ISSS-6. The upper caps still have the bleed screws.

A very good question.
I don't have the manual/Parts list for either my MR4 or my YZ10 that I sold at the same time, last month so I can't tell you the part number.

They are the standard short black ballstuds found on the steering blocks and the bellcranks, nothing special but they certainly fit the plastic ballends a lot better than the silver ones do....Someone here will have a manual or parts listing.....

I have not tried the Yokomo foams but for Jaco's and TRC's the most common types seems to be Purple rears and Plaid (Orange/Purple) for the front. The Plaid is mostly a Purple with a small Orange (firm) ring on the outside of the tire.

Hey Simon, would any length 4-40 ballstud fit those steering parts? I have a bunch of short and medium 4-40 black ballstuds from my losi xxx.

The Losi ones will fit but you will have to use Losi ballcups.

Yoshi, you need to have a phillips screwdrive that fits really well, because the screw is so small. I found one at Sears that works really good without striping the screws. I do believe an AE cap will work in a pinch.
The part number for the Yokomo shock end cap is YS-8Y, I think there are two caps with screws in each pack.

Thanks. I think Im goin the AE cap route. I looked and saw that they included optional AE shock bushings so it MUST be compatible hehehh.

You should stay with the Yokomo shock caps in the future, they are much better with the bleed screws. The Craftsman screwdriver I bought also fits the small screws that retain the hinge pins on the arms. Next time put a little grease on the threads before you install the screw, it will help a lot. Good luck!
