Your best bet to make it bullet proof is to get the larger bumper


Yokomo Wide Bumper (BD-001W)


you could go stock car racing with that use as nudge bar

Hello guys.

I try to find out correct spring rates chart with yokomo spring measurement. A have found just old messages about old style of color spring, like this:

Yokomo (Pro shock spring long type with color marking at the bottom)
Black - 258 gF/mm
Blue - 264 gF/mm
Yellow - 280 gF/mm
Pink - 290 gF/mm
Green - 303 gF/mm
Orange - 330 gF/mm

But somebody says that chart is too old color and somebody have another, modern.
I try to use spring from TOP, Yokomo, RC-ride for best result.

Could you be so kind and tell me, do you have correct spring rates with color and gF/mm.

Thank you and sorry for my english..

Hey Guys, i was thinking of modifying my shocks to make them shorter. Right now i have about 4mm of spacing for ride height.

I have some spare shock shafts from Tamiya which are about the same (haven't measured yet), so i was going to cut about 2 mm from them, and re-tap the tread on them. and voila, shorter shocks.

Ideas, comments?

You'll want a lower shock tower and shorter bodies. Otherwise all you're going to do is limit the amount of droop you can run (possibly ride height too).
Also the Yok pistons don't fit the Tamiya shaft, although Tamiya or HB pistons will fit in the Yok shock body. I'd rather run the Yok piston because the team are getting on "ok" with them.
