I have recently gone back to the old chassis on carpet and have found that it is more consistant than the sp chassis.

mo, have you tried a stiffer top deck? I'm making a 3mm thick carbon fiber one.

No, haven't tried it yet. I want to get one of the penguin upper decks, but can find anyone who has one and Penguin direct only takes payment thru paypal. I won't go near paypal.

Any dealer should have them.

I sold just over 30 MR4s and hold 10 bulk head caps in stock. Also it only takes a matter of days from when I order parts to when I receive them, so I really can't understand why you are having a problem.

Misfit....

I'll send you one with pleasure if you like, except that I'm on the other side of the world, and it will take ages to get to you, and cost you the earth in postage.

Surely someone in your area should stock Yokomo parts. I received another lot this morning.

I would like to know the partnumber on the 1mm trailing steering blocks presented by yokomo in december. I can't view the dec. news page on yokomo.co.jp.

Someone tested it? It's supposed to smooth out the initial turn in.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Good day's racing yesterday. Started the A at the back of the grid and finished the first final 4th. Started the second final 4th and finished 4th.

It wasn't easy as my son was racing for the lead in the same finals and I was spending more time watching his progress than getting on with mine. He won both.

The Yoke performed faultlessly, after last week's glitching. I also put on a new faster digital servo which made the car very twitchy on the standard 5 degree front hub carriers. I'll go to 7 degrees and see if it improves things. it should.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Hey guys,

I have lost some of the shock pistons for my SP- does anyone know the part number for the shock piston set so I can order some new ones? I can't seem to figure out where it is in the parts list.

Thanks guys,

Jason, I think they come with the shock parts set...I have bought several of the sets. I don't know the P# though.

BigDogRacing,

Try this part number: YS6W - Shock Plastic Parts.

Don't quote me, but I think you have to buy the whole plastic parts tree to get the pistons.
In the UK it is only about 4 so it's pretty cheap.
