well, it is the Yokomo body, and it doesnt really fit the tamiya cars very well... .the shock towers are too tall, so its mounted on the Yoke. it drives amazingly well, although the rear can be loose sometimes on the sweepers. im gonna try putting a touring car wing on the rear body posts... as for the wcr sway bar, it probably should have some sort of brace between the mounts like the graphite one in the kit. that one wont work cuz when used on the evo the spacing is too narrow.

i cant really tell... our track owner is a longtime Yoke driver, and he always liked the upper mount, for some reason. plus, i like it cause it a lot easier to change them!! the part # is 49258

Default servo saver sticking?

Heheh.. I used to think I had this problem.. Everytime I turned, it would get stuck. Then I found out it wasn't my servo saver at all. doodoo brain me, I put the steering knuckle thingy that is stuck to the servo on backwards. I didn't know that there was a difference :X.. heheh.. but it works perfectly now, and I don't use the stock servosavers anymore.. kimbrogh for me

About the WCR sway bar. From what I've heard, the Tamiya designers have done extensive testing in regards to locating the optimum position for the sway bars be it high, low, or somewhere in between. I believe the general concensus is that it is best to leave it in it's stock location. However, for those who have gone with the WCR and found a setup that works, more power to you. The same goes with the torqure rods, more of a tuning option.

Default Torque Rods

I have found that putting on the torque rods takes away a small amount of early mid corner steering. I believe this happens because without the torque rods the up-rights flex towards the back of of the car providing more caster mid corner.

the points that martin makes are exactly the reason that i refer to them as push rods, instead of torque rods.

Default Hi Peter

Hi Peter,

Hope you are doing well. I won't be able to make it to the Reedy Race. (. Good luck at the race.

By the way, I tried my foam setup with rubber tires and much softer springs (Tamiya Yellow) and lighter oil (50/30) and it worked great. Not as quick as a front one-way but still very good. Stable yet rotated in the corners very well.

Martin

Default need a setup

speaking of setups , does anyone have a setup for rubber
with front and rear diffs?
track is asphalt(medium bite) very small track , tight technical turns
motor is stock 27T or 23T
i'm particularly interested on the choice of tyres
i have mainly HPI tyres from my Pro 3 days but many of them dont work...
so besides HPI which do u recommend?Sorex or Tamiya?
