Hey guys!!! Chris is TQ at the Carpet Nats and my buddy that's racing and helping run the race says he is SHMOOOKIN' fast!!

Man, I'm sooo glad to see a Yok kickin butt again. He said Mo finally got a good run in today, but I don't think he's where he wanted to be in the qualifying.

Josh,
Car looks good with that top deck.

Had a cool days racing, even with very few cars at the track, perfect weather and the car ran really well. After changing to the 3 deg caster blocks it actually felt very similar to before(5 deg).
Probably didn't help that I changed a whole pile of things during the week, hard to tell exactly what-did-what

yeah bigdog, nice to see yoks are on the winning edge again!!!

i'll be racing on another track which is an indoor asphalt and the traction is very good maybe because its very new.

i'll be trying bigdog racing set-up using the upper hinge pin on the bulkhead both front and rear! i only have losi's 37.5 and 27.5 oil. i hope this work!

bigdog, why is that tossilini and other yoke drivers prefer not to use the rear sway bars.

how can i adjust the droop on the sp? got no idea on this!

Maski : The reason why the pro drivers dont use a rear sway bar is because it takes away rear traction. Most pro drivers perfer to have the most traction possible so adding a rear sway bar wouldnt help that. They would how ever use a rear sway bar if they had a push and felt like putting it on.

Concerning the droop issue. The way we adjust droop is by the length of our shocks. The longer they are the more you have. The shorter the shock the less droop you.

Hope this Helps,

TK

Maski- TK is correct about both questions. I would like to add that Masami originally started the trend of using a relatively stiffer rear spring/no swaybar combination as opposed to the softer or equal (same as front) rear spring with a swaybar. In my opinion, the stiffer rear spring/no swaybar combination gives more steering and the car rotates through the turn better given the situation where both setups are optomized and everything else is equal.

I agree, looks like Tossolini may finally have fiured the setup out

Was it Masami? I thought it was BBaker, but I could be wrong.

I agree, doesn't look like mo would be too happy with where he's sitting.

Sweetpea The new shocks that you are hearing about are just longer ones. They allow the piston to remain in the oil longer.

Other new gagdets include Pink springs, rear arms that u lengthen or shorten wheelbase, a bigger front one way for durabillity, hollow center shaft, hmm I know I am missing something here.

Hope this helps.

hollow centre shaft? am i right in thinking that this is the one the spur gear rotates around and where the 2 belts meet?

if so, how much weight (grams plz) does it save over the original?

No, the drive cups of the new one don't fit the old one.

I know www.yokomousa.com has some of the part numbers, including for the pink springs and HD one-way.

I would not get the longer shocks though, nobody seems to be running them.
