I would try 70wt oil with the #3 pistons. Keep all your suspension setups as per your cars directions. I would run Purple rear foams and either Double Purple fronts or Plaid fronts and maybe a front swaybar. I would start witht that and go from their. It should get you in the ball park. The rest is up to you to tune it towards your driving style.

Has anyone tried running a true locked front diff. I mean no diff balls and locked down. I see many Associated and Losi drivers are trying this with success. It is suppose to be like having a one way diff but you have 4wd braking. It is suppose to pull like mad out of the corners but you can drive in deeper into the corners unlike with a true one way. I'm thinking of trying this in the next week or two once I get my car dialed in a tad better. Still focusing on tires for the momment.

Wyd- On my car with the front oneway I could always dive deep into the corners as the all diff cars did (even 2 guys had locked diffs). I also never ever needed the brakes and this was even a very tight track. This is why I dont see the rage about a locked diff

Hi Guys. Greetings from Malta.

LOCKED DIFFS.

We tried a locked front diff on my son's TC3.

It's main advantage is supposed to be on short tight tracks.

Ours is long and fast so perhaps that's why we didn't like it.

As we have a 3 week break between Nats i put a mod motor back in one of my Specials. What fun.

I'm presently building a YR4 special, out of left over parts in the shop. I made my own 3mm CF chassis - similar to MR4 SP chassis. It's looking good. Just a fun exercise and another car to put in the shop window to sell when I've finished with it.

Regards

Joe from sunny malta.

MR4-TC Special Verison 2 is TC Special with the Japan National Championship conversion kit together. They are supposed to be due in December. The YMP chassis is not included in this kit.

Hi, need help here...Just got my TC, was wondering what gearing would be best for a 8-9secs tech track...I'm using 78spur and a 9mod.
Would a 19T pinion works best (motor turn+10) FDR=9? Or should I go for higher?
How does it compare, if I were to use 23stock? Any feedback?
thanks.

Yes, Just those SSG Graphite plates and not the chassis. I am just planning to get the Japan National Championship kit because the stock should arrive soon within the next two weeks.

RS kit is the downgrade version or cheaper verison of TC Special.

All the parts are not graphite and it comes with only front one way (6mm I think). But the RS kit does not include center one way like the TC Special.

If you can wait a little, just get the TC Special Version 2. This is coming out in December anyway. No one will have any information on how much it will be but it sure worth more money than the RS kit.

Hello again Yokomo people,

I am looking to buy a new top-of-the-line TC and I have narrowed my choices down to the FTTC3, the Graphite Plus XXXS, or a Yokomo Special. The TC3 attracts me because of it supposedly has a very free drivetrain and many people drive it at my track. The Losi is also very popular at my track, and seems to have the best value. The yokomo I've heard is the best handling car you can buy, and I like driving with one-ways and only the yok includes these standard. Please convince me to buy the Special!

If you are looking at a SP I have one to sell that is in mint condition. It has all the stock stuff plus a front diff and a lockout center gear adapter. I have a ton of parts and another stock MR4TC Pro. It is perfect shape and I'm willing to sell it. I will let all go for 200 bucks. You won't be disappointed with it. I have all directions for both cars as well. I just have too many cars and actually other hobbies like my atv that always takes money.

I'm on Ebay as wyd10 if you want to see my profile. It is a steal at 200 bucks as a new SP runs over 300 alone. I have tons of a arms front and rear and extra belts.

As for handling the car has been great for me. I have had numerous Yokes over the last 2 years and they all were killer. I have nothing bad to say about the car.

Thanks
Brian

I probably got the wrong imformation about the TC Special Version 2. So far, according to what the picture provided by Yokomo Japan. The car look pretty much the same and I can't tell the difference between the old one and the new one.
