I recomend the MIP driveshafts. The shiny ones are very druable (although I managed to bend one) and the aluminum ones are virtually the same as the yoks, except cheaper. I use the shiny's up front, and yok aluminum in the back. One thing I notice about the design of the MIPs is they don't pick up nearly as many carpet fibers in the joint than the yoks do. This is because they have a cup that covers the joint.

Can anyone recommend gearing for the Yok SP running in stock with a P2K or a GM3 pro.

I'm running on a tight technical track with low traction using the P2K pro. My gearing last night was 23/81(stock spur). Punch was great but top end was slow. I think I can go higher with the pinion as there was plenty of battery life and the motor was not too hot. Just want to make sure in case I fry the comm.

Thanks

Yes, you should easily be able to go to a 24 and that should be just about right.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Haven't been on much recently. Haven't had much to report.

Had a lousy day's racing Sunday. Just couldn't do anything right all day. Finished 7th and 8th in the two finals - worst result this season.

I ran the car Friday and it felt great. I was consistantly just off 17 laps in 5 minutes. Come Sunday I couldn't even do a 16. The Yoke was handling like a pig and was slow as a snail.

I pulled it apart yesterday but couldn't find much wrong. Put it together again, skimmed the armature and put a new set of brushes on. I replaced a couple of bearings that were giving a bit too much slop, but other than that all went back together the same way. Tried it today and it's fine again. Hope it stays that way next Sunday when we're at it again.

Son Josh won both finals with his TC3 so at least he picked up some of the honour.

Does Darkside check into this thread at all nowadays? If so, Hi!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Hey guys. I'm gonna run a trophy race this Sunday on a very rough parking lot track.... ride height = 8-10mm!! Thats how rough it is. Anyways, any tips for better rough handling? I was thinking about shortening the camber links just a tad. Some slightly heavier oil. No sway bars. Perhaps #2 pistons. Possibly even moving the lower shock mounts in some. I don't know, any other tips? Softer springs than yellow? Thanks guys...

I would think soft as possible, with as much travel as possible.

Just don't use the low-friction belts from the kit. i suggest you change them with standard belt (World Replica) coz the low-friction belts can damaged your aluminum pulley.

I would keep the front low-friction belt in, but scrap the rear one. Parts- driveshafts (consider replacing with MIP shiny or Yok hardened if they do bend) shocks towers, arms, the usual...I have had the most trouble with the rear bulkhead piece that holds the hingpin. Overall though, very durable car. I would say arms and shock towers, most other stuff won't break bad enough that you have to replace it right away, with the driveshafts and rear bulkhead pieces, the will usually last for the raceday.

Nope, i don't think so. The only aluminum pulleys are on the center shaft. Why would you want to have aluminum pulleys on the diffs?
