Yokomo makes a direct drive center pulley, which is part number ZS-630ASP.
you forgot to tell him about those 5x8 bearings LOL

Holy cows. I need to get all that?! I thought the world's edition is all decked out!!

Do they sell a front ball diff package where it's got everything included in one assembly?

I'm running without any anti roll bars. I don't really know the degrees and camber setting. I do it all by eyes. A little toe in in the back. I ran on just normal asphalt parking lot. And I experience extreme over steer. Every little turn left or right would send me spinning. Also, when I break - the car would spin out mostly one way. I have feeling that may be due to weight distribution. NOt sure.

I have a tc3 and it handles like a charm outta the box stock. Didn't really need much adjustments.

I"m so confused with the mr-4tc. Especially with the center drive? I believe it's the one way that I have - are there other center drive options?


Again I have a world's edition. By this rate, I'm thinking of selling my mr-4tc and just stick with the tc3.

LOL, true, you also need the bearings yoshi mentioned, heh. The worlds is all decked out, it just doesn't come with a front diff Like I said, they dont sell all the parts together, you must buy them seperately, but they are all fairly cheap, all together it should come to around 20 dollars.

You might want to try playing with the setup with the one-ways first to see if you can get that to work.

Good luck

I would like to get some of that silver graphite stuff for my Yoke. I got lucky as I traded a leather jacket that didn't fit me so I traded it for a MR4TC Pro to go along with my SP. I got a fair amount of parts plus what I already had. I feel like a Yoke supply center now. Nice to have a big assortmanet of parts.

The diff spring is part of the bag with the Adjustment screw and nut.

Talking My Yoke, still going strong

Just here to say that I still race my reliable yokomo pro. I have 2 yoke pros, and a tc3. I like my yoke because it's easy to drive. I have been running, basically, the same set up on carpet with rubber tires for the 3rd season. I rarely break anything at all on it. I have a quantum comp speedo, Airtronics 94757 digital servo and just started using the take off cs27 tires that are pre built. I run a center one-way on carpet and both one-ways on pavement. I have ran it w/ foams and it is hooked up. I also just started to use the protoform 2.0 stratus and waiting on the new yoke body, I think it's like the 2.0. Anyone that would like my setup, let me know, I'd be happy to give it out. Happy Racing.

The Yoke is just a great design and even though it is a older car like the TC3 they have stood the test of time because they have a great design. They are alot of new cars coming out but none are actually better, many are equal and the driver and setup will take care of the rest.

It is nice that they just make small improvements and just don't make totally new cars so you need to spend a ton every few months. I like the small changes and with that you don't need to learn a hole new car every few months either.

I have tried many touring cars but always come back to the Yoke as it just drives easy and fast. It also can take some good hits just incase I do hit the occasional wall or back marker.

ImGoinRCn,
could you let me have your setup please? also run on carpet, but just started racing. using some T27s right now, might give the slicks that came with my Worlds a go some time though.

Wyd,
got to agree, very strong cars, ran mine flatout into a solid wood fire door head on, all that broke was where the front shock mount screws into the front diff cap.

I have bought the diff screw before and that's all it included, do you have a part number for this set?

Sorry Josh,
I included the manual with the kit that I sold a few months back so I don't know the part number.
When I bought the "Bag", it had the screw, nut and spring in it.

Hello Yokomo people, I'm considering a yok and I'm wondering which kit is the most up-to-date kit they have out.

There is a new YMP kit for MR4-TC series and it is very expensive. And also, there will be two new kit from Yokomo for MR4-TC Special. The first one is the Japan National Championship kit, which includes everything that Masami used on his car that won the race. The next item is the YMP Chassis, I think it is 4mm thick.

Those two things are coming out in Early December.
