Hi Guys,

We have some new stuff for the MR-4TC: The SSG conversion and lower deck are available and also the new bladder style shock caps are available as well.

As for the new TC, who knows, maybe Yokomo will release two top of the line TC, one for stock racing and one for modified racing I wouldn't be surprised if it was shaft driven. Rumor has it that prototype is being tested this month and next month and production will be very quickly following the prototype. Yokomo will continue to support the MR-4TC line though

this isn't a flame but how do you use a socket head on a flat head screw?

I'm assuming he means a flat surface on the screw with an interior bevel, as are commonly found on the bottoms of R/C chassis. The socket is usually recessed into the head.

That is correct - metric allen wrenches are used instead of phillips head screw drivers. The sets include Flat head screw (usually chassis screws that are recessed, button head and socket head for everthing else (shock towers, braces, suspension).

well again this isnt a flame but techincally that is not a socket, that is an allen driver. a socket is something that you use to get your wheels off your car. if you catch my drift.

its something that goes round the nut/screw, i've seen it on masami's car and was wondering if that was them.

capricess you got mail! free shipping and all that i'll take you up on that.

granted - your right! but when the screws are purchased they are listed under socket head screws category and as part of the description - so that how I refer to them. Sorry about the confusion. My email address is cheetahtunnels@yahoo.com

Question::::

Has anyone had any trouble with the Axles on the MR4-TC SP.

To claify what I'm after, I get movement between the Axles and the bearings. It's only half a mil but that Half Mil does some wonderful things to the camber.

Has anyone seen this before.

It's not the bearings as It's on all four axles and you can see the small amount of space inbetween.

Any help would be good or should I put it down as an undocumented feature....

Thanks
