All I can say is if your not comfortable with super small parts that can be lost super easy this might not be the kit for you.

The ball detents to adjust the tension are cool but I am scared thats gonna fall out if I ever rebuild the gear diff.

The way you have to install the spur was super tight. I am starting to think the extra shim isn't needed.

Kit seems super cool so far but def not for a beginner. Servo mount installed and ready.

I ended up just using the aluminum shim with an x ray spur. I wish the correct spur was available for 17.5. The correct spur is 2.5mm at the mounting point where as the normal yokos are 3.0

lol I love you too. Haters got to hate......jk but in all honesty I am proud of that. and if it helped sell my old stuff so be it. No where near professional though.

Let's get one thing straight my building skills are no where near awesome. Nor my tuning skills.

Artwork have you built one of these things before (Yokomo) they are just weird a lot of really tiny screw driver steps. Just seems like it's not a kit you should get if you don't know what you are doing. Between the instructions and the little things I am not used to. I am used to the Xray where is shows you every little minor detail that makes it pretty hard to mess up when your building the kit. This is pretty easy to mess up.

Once you have the spring in the mount, place a very small amount of CA on the ball to hold it in place. This will stop it from falling out.

It has been a while since I have had a Yokomo...really interested to see how the build goes. Tamiya instructions are kind of like that too...they assume you kind of know what you are doing I think. The X-ray instructions are really good compared to most. Take good pics!

Are you using the short or long servo horn?

I'm going to have to turn mine down both ways at least it feels so.

I cannot wait, every day I wake up hoping its coming today!! Been running Xray 008, 009, all 3 T3's with no complaints but been offered a bit of a deal with the yok and really looking forwards to it. The last yok I owned was a mr4tc-sd ssg special silver graphite carbon parts and shaft drive, was awesome back then.
Does the new car come with servo saver?? And this talk of droop setting, do you not just adjust droop from lowest point on the arm near the outer pin??? That's how iv done every car iv had??
Also waiting for a $340 spares package to arrive

My steering rack binds before I reach full lock turning right. I'm currently using the short arm, but have used both with no change either way. The only way I can get full lock to the right is with +2 toe and the rack way off center.

And you have the servo horn correctly off-set from center per the instructions? You can add more off-set as well.

The Yokes have always had a small issue (in my experience) getting full lock when running the outer Ackerman holes on the block and the 8mm center link.

I would honestly try driving it first set-up per the instructions (with equal circles left and right). All the other iterations have been very aggressive and you may find it already has plenty of steering!

Normal droop screws.

It comes with a servo horn not saver.

You're probably correct, this is me being anal. Lol. It's actually off by 3 degrees turning to the right.
