jeff,

from what i've heard off the yok forum, the changes are minor. there will be the new tosolini style kingpin mod and outer camber link. new trailing front suspension carriers and things.

overall not much new i think?!? someone feel free to correct me!

have a nice day

sanj

Looks like a bit of refinement, the current car just needed a few little tweaks anyway.
Go to the link I posted above for pics of the new parts + part numbers.

If you've got an original SP then I think to upgrade all the meaningful parts (i.e. not the wheels!) will cost about 60 in the UK, anyone know how much it will cost stateside?

cheers

I bought a used PRO edition..Man it took a little bit too get it right..Lots of new parts to replace stripped out arms and such..So a Special V2 should be a Serious step up..I hope..

Sanj,
I think the MR4 Rally was the predecessor of the TC, the Off road buggy(BC)came out after the TC was released.

Default droop setting?

Hey guys, a friend of mine just picked up an mr4tc special. He is new to sedans and I am not familiar with the yokomo cars. I only got to look at the car for a minute and didnt see any droop set screws, does the car have them or do you put spacers in the shocks, or? Can someone give me a good starting setup for a fairly smooth un-treated assphalt surface? Thanks, Blake.

Well having owned one before, and looking to get mine back again... Shock length was a way with the Yokomo's on setting Droop. Limiters inside the shocks would be another way. But I remember shock length...

Blakesrc,

setups here:

http://www.schumacher.clara.net/setupsheets.htm

Try Jay Neill's onroad setup as a starting point. As for droop, I would go with kilruf, I would use the longer shocks(expensive option) using the preload to adjust the droop. The cheaper option is to undo the shock end slightly and then use the preload to adjust the droop.

have a nice day
