The stock setup and springs are surprising good. Tried changing to Xrays springs, Hot bodies silvers and diff oil weights and I think I am going back to the stock setup. It feels harder to drive but it is faster in timed laps.

Also parts are not that easy to break. I have no trouble with stock steering blocks, castors etc but its easier to tweak the car after a big hit than the Xray.

I ended up running one step stiffer in than HPI silvers in the rear and two steps up front but I run goofy stuff.

Just started building my new shocks and was wondering if anyone is drilling a hole through the plastic part on top of the shock so to get less rebound

We have been working hard to bring Yokomo back to the US again. They have great products that people want to run. If it is possible to make Yokomo available to our US customers, and I believe that it is, rest assured that we will do it.

Yeah that sounds right. I keep forgetting to open my box and check. But I am also running 30 weight oil in them too.
