Which weights do you have? There's two versions of the front and rear. New versions front 10g with pin as oppose to 15g and rear is 30g with pin.

I will take a picture for you later today installed on a chasses. Keep it mind the 15g will not fit if you're running a xray servo saver, you will need BWF10, the 10g version.

Default DCJ rebuild

I had a DCJ fail on me and was wondering is there a good way to prevent failure it was the nub on the axle that connects to the axle bone. Any help would be good thanks Chris

Interesting comments a few pages ago about what is the one single setup change to modify the car

re chassis weights... I run wheel balancing weights on the electronics side. Cheaper than the yokomo ones, and 15g fits easily with the xray servo saver

Quick google search revealed a picture that may help you.

Which version DCJ is it? Pin type with set screw or the DCJ version with locking clip? If you're running the pin type it's prone to breaking, even with a slight bump of the wheel. Most have switched to the locking clip or other brands like MR. Roche and Spec R. I like the Roche, it has served me well.

It is the pin type with set screws. Should I switch to the clip type? Or just get a Roche

I had success with either, including the spec R, as long as it's the C clip type.

Yes he is, but there no longer is a Yokomo USA. However, you can pretty much get everything from Amain, Tq hobbies, etc....

Bought myself a yokomo 15 second hand
Didn't come with the double jointed shafts
What's the size of the inner bearings needed for the roche double jointed shafts
And what's the size of the pin that goes through the roche double jointed shafts

Thanks

When filling the rear gear diff with fluid, whats the proper fill point? In the manual it looks like they just cover the satellite gears. But People say to just cover the top pin.
