Just FYI, the JR servo fits in both locations without any issues.

How are people consistently setting the caster? Setup sheets have been filled in with a degree measurement, so say 6deg, and not a measurement in length, which is what the setup sheet shows. how are you measuring the slider to get the 6 degrees caster?
Trying to measure the caster with a 12th setup station is a bit hit and miss for my liking.

I don't worry about it. I just set it until the car feels about where I want it. I think Slapmaster has a setup tool that's more accurate for reading caster alone. Not sure if it'll fit the Yok though. I'll have to dig back through my information, but there was something that told how many millimeters equaled a certain degree on the blocks. Then you could go off of that to get a quesstimation. It should be listed somewhere that told the min and max caster you could set.

I have the Slapmaster camber gauges and they do not work with the YRX. The kingpins are 2.5mm for the YRX and the Slapmaster gauge takes 3mm.

Toadyy beat me to it with measurements. And good to know about the Slapmaster gauge.

Awesome thanks for all the replies. I was at 3.10mm, and haven't really changed from this since I've been running the car. That's what I guessed as 5 degrees with my cheapo hobbyking 12th setup station, so wasn't far off.

Car is awesome though, been running standard car for the last few months. My last proper 12th scale was an RC12L in the early 90's, then GT12 racing in more recent years. It tracks so well and is so precise, such a pleasure and rewarding to drive.

Is it worth springing for the yokomo alloy chassis? opinions please.

Only if running on the black carpet or where traction is very high.

I run 13.5 blinky on black carpet on JFT A foams. Others run S foams or Hagbergs, but I've not tried them yet.

Probably not the same black carpet. UK (ETS) is much lower grip than CRC from what I understand.

A couple of weeks ago I asked AMain to stock the 88T and 76T Yokomo spurs that Mibosport in Europe does. They have come through and should be regularly ordering these in. I wiped out the 2 they had in stock today on the 76T.
