Well, at least I got a straight answer... And what's the different between the silicone lube and the gray differential lube (part #'s z155 and z156, respectively)?

once owned the new YOk BD...similar design to the cyclone...all I can say is wow...great handling and corner speed. tons of rear traction..due to the motor configuration. the torque of the motor force the rear end to be more planted... on the shaft...the torque of the motor will tend to pull it to one side better than the other.... sold the BD...now patiently waiting for the Cyclone. if the pro4 was great..I'm sure the new cyclone will be just as great or better.....

Default Adjustable upper camber link & pivot blocks

What are the effects when changing the upper camber link heights and pivot blocks heights?

Thanks!

From what I can tell, the manual IS backwards. Doing what you describe raises the roll center and you get less traction due to the decreased roll.

I DO know that...just want to share their ad about "RTR"....
Back 3 months ago, I ordered 6 415 MS kits from TOWER for $249.99 each....of course, when the kits are actually in TOWER's warehouse, they emailed me and said the actual price is $449.99.........then I cancelled all my orders......
For something like that....I have to give that a shot.

From what I understand, the LOWER the inner link (camber link over the gear box) and the HIGHER the hub position (over the wheel hub by adding spacer) the more traction that will be.............
At least, I felt that way once I add a 2mm spacer onto the hub link position.

it doesen't affect for amount of roll, it affects for roll speed and tire pressure force. so when we look at only the traction of tire,higher roll center has more traction. but all depending up on the total barance..
usually, the higher roll center is used on the low traction track.
just my2cents.
