Default Yokomo MR-4TCSD & MR-4TCSDCGM chat

I thought that there should be enough Yokomo drivers out there to warrant having our own thread. So feel free to ask questions, Give advice, Post Yokomo related items for sale, Set up advice for a specific track or even new parts you have found.

I myself am still green when it comes to the Yokomo Cars. But i am looking forward to building my kit and getting it down to Eastern Creek for some serious fun.

The gearing/rollout depends on the track and the motor.

I am selling off my Tamiya TRF414M11 to pay for my new Yokomo CGM kit. I bought this kit not too long ago. As soon as i started racing i found myself sitting with a couple of Yokomo racers Danny and Noi. They are very nice people and very helpful. The change will make it easier for me with the help from these guys set up a car and with a lot of practice be competative one day.

Default Nice stuff Dan

Looks good Dan. I cant wait to get mine. I took your advice and i am going to get the MC800 ESC with the 3PK HRS and S9550 digital servo. I will also be ordering the spare parts to go with the CGM.
Looks like there will be 4 in the team soon.

Default Maybe i was wrong

I guess there isn't enough Yokomo fans to justify this thread.

Does anyone know if there are any Yokomo drivers at Mingara.
If there is what set up are they or you using.

Hey all!

I have a black SD but yet to run in any races here.

When is the next meet?

I've also got a question for you electronic guru's. I've got a 110v 42a transformer from Japan. I need to buy a step down transformer but I need to know how many watts does the 12v transformer draws. Could anyone help?

Ill post my two bits. I think its good to have a yoke thread and the car is certainly getting more popular in Aust.I have a cgm myself after having a yr4m,mr4 worlds,special,sd ssg and feel that the cgm is the most consistent chassis out currently of all those mentioned.I race the car on ashfault outdoor on a pretty bumpy track and have found that it likes to be set up fairly agressive ie not much droop,pink to green springs,and also the car coming out with only 1 deg castor knuckles isnt a problem.What does everyone else think of their sd's?

Default As long as you have fun

Brian will do fine. He has a great car and a lot of support in the guys around him. He seems to have a great time to. If he sticks with his new electric car it want be long before he is making the A finals. I cant wait to get my CGM. I really felt out of place with my TRF414MII. So it made perfect sence to buy a Yokomo. We have a great little team now and it feels good to be apart of it.
