The blocks install with the line high or low, use it side ways it will not sit far enough in to attach the holding clip.

I'm looking at my R12 ...isn't the block is holding the a-arm pin?
It is almost kinda like TC antidive or kickup

I think yokomo R12 retail version is failure. for that reason, team yokomo have a hard time running fast.


today practice lap time.
1st naoto (current world champion) 14.989
2nd murai(team yokomo) 15.223
3rd fukuoka(team kawada) 15.296
4th hayato (team crc) 15.345
5th kitazawa(team corally) 15.360


You mean down travel limiter...it keep the frontend diving too far down..

Started running with Jaco Magenta's all around, Car was running very well.
Rears fully soaked, front soaked about 3/4.
-> these were my quickest laptimes thusfar.
Next I switched to Yokomo medium L rears, I noticed I had a little less rear grip.
This means the medium L rears are almost the same as Magenta, little harder.

After this I also went for yokomo L mediums at the front, sauced the same as the Jaco's. Car drove good as well, 0.2s slower as with the jaco's but with some tuning I should get some more steer and I'd be as fast as with the Jaco's.

The track I run at normally starts the rears at about 43mm, anything above tears because of the grip. The Jaco's I started with were from last season and were 44mm (forgot to true em fresh), tore after 3 runs.
The home glued Yokomo tires I ran at 45mm!! and no problems at all, all in perfect shape.

I also milled ride height spacers that will slide under the suspension arms without having to dismount the complete suspension.
I'll get some pictures up tomorrow.
Question:
Instead of milling the height block...can you just adding the spacers under the block ,then readjustment the down-stop screw?

Thanks for great feed back on yokomo tires

Ok thanks..

It also seems to change the angle of the front shock...

only really one way to find out how it works, tested one way this weekend shall test the other way next.

Well, I milled thin cfk plates that can be put under the height blocks. I really hate putting shims under there every time the car goes down 0.25mm.
Now I just loosen the screws and take away a 0.25mm plate, I'll have pictures up in the evening.

One thing I did notice was the car tends to tilt pretty fast when I compare it to other 1/12ths. I hate to say this, but the wide chassis will prolly help with this.
You'd think Yokomo would offer this chassis as a cheap upgrade for the persons that already bought the car because an extra 60$....

Nope, front end is the same but the suspension is put wider apart.
As far as I can read, the front track of the car will be 6mm wider. And thats a lot!!

3mm on each side, personally the agressive frontend is to my liking so don't really feel the need to upgrade unless the feedback is that good.

Another part needed is a bigger sway bars part # R12-17SW
