It was the second weekend on it, but it had been used before. I bought it cheap just to try it out, so it probably has 5 race-days total on it. Still, it only brakes from crashing

And will cut out the place where the spur rides under the bulkhead, to match my carbon fiber top deck when I get that made.

One way broke on Saturday, so I have a HD one coming in, along with the kingpin-ballstuds to mount to front link on the castor block, and also have modified the rear hubs to give that a try too.

Hi Speedo,

Any picture to share on your carbo fiber top deck ? I got a piece of fiber glass and planning to do something similar.

Attached is an image of the solid works design. I'll get some pictures up when I get it cut, hopefully by the end of this week.

Very nice.

On another tangent....
Can you all please let me know the Minimum weight limit for 4WD Touring cars(in Grams) in each of your countries, and also if there is a difference if you run Foam or rubber tyres/Indoor or Outdoor racing.
Eg. Rubber tyres XXXX grams
Foam tyres XXXX grams.

Thanks.

On Mo's web page is a setup which resembles Chris Tosolini Novak race setup. What is this setup suppose to give you in terms of handling feel. Also are those blue springs Yokomo's?

ongbenghui-thanks! No, I have never seen that before, looks cool.

c/f top decks are done, all worked out very nicely. Will be very interesting to see what this does.

4head- Yes, yokomo blue springs. Running a softer spring on the front helps smooth the car out when using the front one-way.

Thanks for the responses guys.

I checked out that Japanese link and it was quite interesting, Hard to follow exactly what was going on with Bablefish but I got the general idea.

Default Hey guys!

If you are looking for a really nice Worlds Yok. take a look at mine ! It has some pretty interesting features and is extremely fast. I am currently using a 6mm oneway from a TAMIYA TA04. Also I have changed several other parts of the car for improved performance. Takle a Look:
Yokomo MR4TC Worlds Car! $150.00

Thanks,
SWG
