Depends how you cut the body. Are you cutting it on the molded lines? I cut mine above the line to mount the body lower on the car. There is about 3mm or 4mm on the front lip.

So apart from the colour there is no difference between the black and blue kits apart from being price?
Thinking about leaving my current sponser for one looked at xray but drawn more to yokomo not had a yoko since yr4 m2 so many moons ago.
What are peoples thoughts good car,reason for thinking of leaving is lost confidence in my current car.
What parts seem to go arms, hubs,etc
Thanks

The graphite plastic isn't that bad. I keep one spare of everything except for front knuckles and C hubs, those I keep a couple of each. Realistically though, I've only ever broken 1 C hub. The car is pretty tough!

I haven't cut my body posts, so they're still at the stock length. When my LTC-R is mounted, there are 6 body post holes exposed above the body in the rear and 4 body post holes exposed in the front. Now that I've settled on the LTC-R as my body of choice, I will soon trim the posts accordingly.

Default Tweaked Suspensions Arms

For a while now I have been checking my suspension arms when rebuilding the car.

I am noticing that they develop a tweak, probably after a few hits or knocks and not necessarily big ones.

For example, if you put the arm on a perfectly flat surface (best if you strip it of all other parts), hold one end and push down on one side of the other I notice that it rocks a little. Sometimes a little others a lot. Compare it to a new arm which will be perfectly flat. Carbon and plastic both do it.

It does affect droop height a little and I have been replacing them, but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed or checked this?

Am I worried about nothing, its starting to get expensive?

Dave

Default Great job yokomo!!

Great job on the new gear diff yokomo!! I took mine apart today after doing a few meets with it to try and bed it in. I found out that the new o-rings are a hell of a lot bigger than the old ones which in turn was causing the pin to rub on the shim, lucky enough my dad had an old rebuild kit with the original o-rings and some new shims, rebuilt it and now it is perfect. Come on yokomo great car only problem with the car sort it out!!

Hopefully there are some team drivers on here who can pass this on to yokomo!!

Just a quick question.

What is the longest DCJ shaft Yokomo offer? I have the ones marked 40.6, interested in something a bit longer than that, 1mm would be enough.
