Futaba RC Pro Shop carries all the weird stuff. For standard Yokomo rubber I often use RC Race Drift Japan.

Here are the Pro Shop ordering instructions.

Default Rear bearing offset

Hi,

I noticed that for Yokomo R12, the maximum bearing offset in the rear is 1.75mm.

So for brand new tyre, with the maximum bearing offset, the ride height is still of a high ~6.5mm.

Where else I can get bearing offset for Associated up to 3.5mm. But again, the rear bulkhead is different and I can't use the Associated bearing offset on R12.

Does anyone got a better solution to reduce the ride height for brand new tyre ? err... beside cutting them ?

Many thanks.

I haven't had issues cause I use green slime and thick oil. The front axles are the same as any other 1/12 but the rear is only slightly different. in order to use wheel that are currently on the market you will need to change out the axle and hub and some shims. the Yokomo hubs create the wide wheel base so their wheels are deep dish style as for the parmas, crc, ect wheels are flat so if you use those wheels on the yoke hub it will give you a crazy wide wheelbase!
What is the offset of rear wheel between Yokomo & other like CRC, JACO ?

AE wheels is about 1mm from the inner edge. Yokomo is about 20mm, sort of middle of the wheel vs the edge.

Link is not broken, simply data is not available yet and page is pending the release of this setup if released any day. This is just a matter of practicality I might say.

Mobgums and Torke tires are sold glue on R12 rims. They are almost the same price as Jaco.
I would go for this solution.
