42291 however they will not be blue. Also, if you are planning on getting new dampers just get the super short dampers for the trf 419x and get the new damper stays.

With the crown gear shields in place there have been no issues at all so far.
On a busted up surface or street there could be issues but same goes for the open pinion and spur of any sedan.
But we hope to design something and put it on shapeways so that someone can print a plastic top shield if they wish. For now I just attached lexan shields that covers the crown gears. Same thing you have to do on the Evo5 when you run the larger gear diffs because the plastic covers dont fit.
Are they ready for primetime yet?

Unfortunately no... testing progressing well though but I'm awaiting revised bulkheads to try before going to production. The factory just really slow sending samples this year due to our production needs for our off road parts...

Nice results from the Reedy race last week... not bad considering I've only been to the track 3 times this past year

Grabbed a surprising TQ in stock class and then ended up 5th overall. Should have finished better in the mains but had a rear diff issue and possible shaky nerves due to lack of track time this year

I tested the alloy bulkheads, new 2mm bottom plate and the flex top plate. Car was just wicked fast!

Default VTA

I picked up an exo6 to replace my 417 in VTA. Are Yokomo blue springs still the preferred springs on the new black carpet?
Does this car use the short springs or the standard length ones? If someone could link me to the correct length I would be thankful. I am placing an order for the aluminum chubs, a couple packs of shims and would like to add a couple sets of springs.
Does anyone have a good starting 64 pitch gear ratio, just want to get close and I can tune from there.
Thanks in advance.

You can use regular length yok springs. I ran pink front and blue rears in VTA. And I believe I went with fairly small spur. 76-80t? And a 50is tooth pinion. The internal is 2.5 so depending on motor you want between a 3.7 and a 4.5 for VTA

It makes a pretty good VTA car. Just be careful of the doffs. They need rebuilding with new parts every 3-4 full race days. Otherwise they just let go unexpectedly. And after the aluminum c hubs, mine was pretty bullet proof in VTA.

Have fun and enjoy the car.

Thanks professor.
So I can assume the Yoko blues are still the the best even on the black carpet?
Isn't there a set of metal gears for the diff?
I am not a serious racer, durability is more important to me.

Just an FYI, if you change the diff to use metal gears it just means that some other piece in the drive train will be the point of failure like the pilot shaft gear.
