Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

OVERGEAR.

That's an interesting one. The language used is French, but ther is an English translation of most of it.

I never thought I'd see a single belt MR4.

My car has a similar top plate arrangement, except that mine is an alloy rod, with a ball joint either end. It works OK.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Guys, Overgear,

Referring to the link you found,

http://overrcce2002.free.fr/euro2002tcepprotorusse.htm

It is not a new yokomo, it is just a prototype developed by a russian guy who attended the Euros race in Switzerland.

Cheers,

Chris is your car that heavy that you needed to do that? I have the SP and I run the new Futaba 9550 servo, Futaba MC800 esc, and Futaba 123F receiver and with this stuff in my car is 3oz. under weight. Even with rubber tires on my car is still under the weight limit. I like my equipment but I hate to have to add weight to it. Don't look cool with weights stuck on the car.

wyd, because a stock car is always too light for ROAR or NORCA racing, I cut the lead weights and sho-gued them in the thin space down the centerline under the front belt. Can't see the weights without really looking now.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

WEIGHTS.

Yes the SP is well under the 1500 grams minimum weight limit. I have some 70 grams of lead in mine.

I have split the weight, half in the front - between the steering bell cranks, and half in the only available space at the rear - just aft of the cells.

RACING.

Had a good day yesterday. I won both finals, which puts me in the stock class lead in the championship. Actually it was generally a good day for Yokes, with three MR4s in the top 3 spots.

And to cap the good day, son Josh won in mod with his TC3.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

John I have a few pieces of lead in mine as well. I have a piece just in front of my motor and the other piece is behind the batteries. My car steers a ton so I the extra weight in the rear is fine for my car and setup.

You should have you son run a Yoke in mod and have a clean Yoke sweep!!!!

Are you planning on getting the new silver graphite for your SP when and if it becomes available? I think I will as it is so cool looking and I just figure my car will be a tad bit stiffer. The SP chassis does have some flew and the new chassis looks like it is at least 2.5mm thick. I run on a hig bite indoor asphalt track with fopams so a stiffer chassis will be fine.

At your track what car do most run? At our track as of late most run the TC3, XXX-S and either the TA04-R or the 414M2. Our shop is in big with Tamiya and since Tamiya don't favor the Mail Order houses our shop owner really supports Tamiya. Our indoor asphalt TCS race had 164 entries (the most ever for a TCS race).

Cool thing is they can get alot of Tamiya stuff that other places can't since they can deal with Joe at Tamiya and also with David Jun when he was their. It is a great thing and my local shop does well with Tamiya. It is kinda cool to see how Tamiya actually cares about the shop and others like them.

FLEX
there is a small piece of silver graphite that attaches itself to the new upper deck. by varying the number of screws you can adjust flex of the chassis.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

KYEW. Interesting thing with the new top plate. We could say they are copying X Ray. Now that's a change!!!!!!!!!! Joke.

WYD. I've tried persuading son Josh to drive Yokes. He has driven mine and likes it. But really it makes more business sense for us to run different cars. I import both Yoke and Associated, among others, and it would be wrong if we both favoured the same supplier. This is one reason we run Corally motors and cells, and I sponsor other drivers with Orion stuff. It's all centred around the business thing. I'm sure they are all great products.

Any news about new Yokes. What has happened about the car with a gear driven rear that Masami was reputed to be testing. Actually Corally have already run theirs, with the pinion driving a spur gear on the rear diff. Interesting!

Regards

OK, I have seen the error of my ways and I am coming back to the Yokomo MR4 SP. After palying around with a PRO3 for the last 6 months it is about time to get serious again. Don't get me wrong, the PRO3 was good after a little investment but not that good.

One question though. All this talk of the new Yok got me searching and as far as I can see all the new parts should fit direct to the existing SP chassis?
Will there be a conversion kit or will all these new parts be released individually??
When is the expected release date of these parts???

Thanks,
Yorkie
