Default Set-up

Thanks for your setup MO, I'm sure the car is good but bet it's the SMC batteries that made the difference...

What pistons are you running in your shocks? And what difference have you found going to the bulkhead mount for the rear link.

You have the hard springs in the back and soft up front, can you explain I usually see the opposite.

Thanks

Consider the Smack laid down.

2 race wins and a second place in the third final(By a second) and fastest single lap in stock so I'm very happy.
Won by 1.5 seconds overall from second placed car(Corally).
We were the only two cars on 28 laps(Best two races- laps and times added together for final result)
It's my first win for a while. Yay!

I got the usual "Trophy Hunter" and "Burglar" comments too

I think I'll try to get one of "Big Jims" tuned MVPs in for the Nats which will be here in 2 months.

Congrats Simon.

Sorry about leaving out the pistons. They are Yok #3.
The bulkhead mounted camber link makes the car more stable and a little more traction. You can also gain more traction by spacing up the inner mount.
Using the softer springs up front actually has the opposite effect that most people think. It smoothes out the car and makes it easier to drive.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Great race meeting yesterday, and fairly good results for the old man - with the only Yoke in the top ten.

First final: Started 5th on the grid. 3rd by the end of lap 1. Ran well in that position up until brain fade set in. Finished 6th but had the second fastest lap time and the car was ballistic down the straight.

Second final: Ran well most of the time in 3rd but finished fourth after another bout of brain fade. Again super fast on the straights and really good handling too. Pity about the interference in the line between brain and thumbs!

Great day for son Josh who won both the A finals with his TC3, and was the only driver to do 20 laps - in both finals. And how's this for domination: Out of 40 race laps in both finals he had the 14 fastest laps of the day. Incidentally I had the 15th. My fastest: 15.24, his fastest: 14.89. The next fastest guy was in the 15.4s.

Yokes faired fairly well in stock too, filling 2nd and 3rd place in both their finals, and making the fastest lap of the class, 16.69.

We now move to the super fast long circuit for the December races so I'll be trying some tougher motors and the one ways will go back on.

Interestingly the three mod cars with motors tuned and prepared by me were easily the three fastest cars at the meeting. It doesn't half upset people! And they all give plenty of time too.

Well done all you other Yoke runners.

It's back to the real car first for a hill climb, Sunday week.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

MO: What do you mean by "spacing up the inner mount"? [/B][/QUOTE]

Raising up the inner camber link mount. When you mount the camber link on the bulkhead instead of the shock tower, the screw attached vertically instead of horizontally. If you raise up the inside mounting position of the camber link it will give you a little more traction.

Thanks again MO for the setup update. I forget the conversion for the Yokomo shock oil, is 500/400 like 45wt front 35wt rear?
I'm looking forward to running this car again, we are the only ones running the Yok and it is getting close to being dialed.

The conversion depends on what brand of oil you are using.
Yok 500 & 400
Trinity= 50 & 40
Associated/Losi= 45 & 35

I have a collection of front one ways with busted one way bearings, has anyone tried to replace them. It seems that the housing might get wrecked trying to get the bearing out. I hope the heavy duty new front one way is more durable.

Speedo: you are using Orange in the front and green rears. Mine is Orange rear and yellow front.

Can you use any kind of traction additive at West Coast Hobbies?

mo, yes that is correct. But when I started, I had yellow in the front, and orange in the rear.

Sorry, I forgot to answer you the first time. Yes, anything. We did use paragon, bu most have switched to TQ orange, think it works better. Also the place doesn't smell like wintergreen anymore Darren is getting in 30 sets of tires, sorex.

Yea, does anyone know if it's possible to replace those bearings? If I find out any info- I'll post it here.
