I've been searching the web as well , Yokomo USA is no longer but there is still Yokomo Malaysia aka http://www.hobbyhaven.com.my/ .

When the next paycheck comes in I'm going to check with them wether they can order the Yokomo parts.

Hi peoples,

Not sure if this is a dumb question or not, but if i am traction rolling my car is there anything in particular that i can change or focus on that will reduce this more than any else?

Admittedly i should probably try letting off earlier before the corner, and i was dialing out front end steering but would prefer to keep as much as possible.

It depends a bit on what the car does.. Is it griproling on the front or rear tires?


Really effective is gluing the side walls of the front tire. This will reduce front grip big time. But, after a few Bat's you will be running on the glue, and start losing front grip fast.

Putting a shim on the front springs, this will reduce travel of the front susp.

Makin your car more wide at all tires... will reduce grip roll.

Softer center spring, will give more grip and therefore less grip roll.

check the rear tires on the foam being pulled of the rim, but not chunking. This happens a lot, because of the tire additive.

When the grip is really high, putt a softer front spring, this will reduce the "pressure" on the front tire, which will degrease front grip.

Then again, gluing the front tire is the fastest and most effective way to reduce grip roll.

Best Regards

Robert

mangoboy last week your car seemed to be rolling off the rears. If you are running a tall tyre ie lots of side wall this will give alot of sideways grip. Check as mentioned about tyres peeling from rim but not chunking, Glueing sidewalls is a last resort imo when all else fails. Have got the full set of AE side springs if you want to try something different

What is the track like? Gear for the track and not per someone's recommendation who never saw your track, driving style and surface.

Try rollouts in the 60 to 70mm range for small technical tracks.

At the track I race at it's a 75'x35' track with a lot of infield. I'm using a Tekin 13.5/RS v203. Tires are 45mm, spur=80T and pinion=38T for a rollout of 73mm.

Rollout of 80+ will be more for a very large sweeping track.

Temp your motor after you finish a heat and gear so you do not exceed 160*F. (Some motors are good to higher temps but 160 seems to be universal.)

There are too many variables to comment accurately but you can try starting with a 45/76 and go from there.
