Because the are suitable for left and right and not like a Tamiya hub for only left or only right.
Not sure about the Yok but you can fit the entire suspension from Xray from the suspension hingepin to the hub. Does that solve your problem?

I saw a guy in the BD7 thread with full X-ray suspension on BD7. So by deduction, if X-ray fits Tamiya, Yok should as well.

He is still with Tamiya, he races in Asia more than Europe as that is where he is based.

Thanks niznai, I meant only the hub carrier from Yokomo. Tamiya has now finally the new one can change as you want (Sides L/R) but not yet available in Germany so I ask for the Yokomo hub carrier.

I think Grosskamp would be the last to leave Tamiya out of the current top three.

He seems a little more mature and less prone to hissy fits as MR for a start!

So I finally tried out the 2mm Smokem' lower deck last night. The set up was a pretty much a standard base 418 low grip carpet set up. The car was extremely loose both on power and off, but especially on power. I'm guessing it could be my spring choice (HPI Silvers all around). Any suggestions where else to start?

There isn't much news on these guys this year anywhere.. Giles used to frequent this site and answer questions.. Since 418 was released, nothing.

In any case it looks like they're finally figuring out how to be competitive on factory level with the 418. We will have to see what changes they implement when they release an update this fall

My 418 is back up for sell after a local deal fell through. Only run on carpet and comes with all bonus parts plus extras. $400 USD shipped. check it out in the for sale section.

unsurprised considering he lives in Asia and the weather over Dec/Jan/Feb is monsoonal and hardly inviting for outdoor RC

and.... his wife gave birth to a baby recently, so he is probably taking a break!

his name is down for Reedy.

Are you talking about the rear hub? Tamiya's rear hubs and steering knuckles can be used on either side. C-hubs can only be used on specified side

Hpi pinks-front/hpi silvers rear. Tire choice is important on the track.
