Default Yokomo SD to identfy

Hi, I'm a Yokomo TC user since '93 (YR4) from Istanbul. Since then I almost drive all TC chassis of Yokomo at local championships (lots of best time and lots of DNF). Being sole Yokomo equipped racer was really hard these times. Since 2000 it's much easier thanks to online shopping. Now I'm currently driving a BD5 (real ballistic) at championship.

And now my current problem...

Today I purchased a SD chassis from a garage sale (spotting a Yokomo chassis was really shocking btw). As I own a SSG (silver), a CGM and a Rayspeed from SD range, I couldnt recognize this one. No box, no manual and a terribly build (5 degree steering, empty shocks etc, b class horror flic). I couldnt find this one over the www either.

I will disassemble the model tomorrow for a clean rebuild but first I need to identfy the variant in order to find right manual from www for missing parts list etc.

Here are the pictures, thank you in advance for your help.

Ufuk.

It's an aftermarket chassis , maybe 3racing..not sure. It's missing the motor mount system..at least in the photos shown it is. The A arms are also aftermarket, so are the shock bodies, the caps are yokomo..there were lots of aftermarket chassis kits for the early 2000 SD cars due to the fact the stock chassis had a lot of flex..but my bet would be 3racing chassis..

Looks like some CGM parts in it, can't tell what aftermarket chassis it is though.

I believe it is a Yokomo MR-4TC-SD. I looked up images of their different cars and I'd say this chassis looked pretty close to the features of yours.



This says it has a "Rayspeed" chassis conversion and it looks alot different in teh material than yours

3Racing doesnt carry any Yokomo stuff according to their website. And YeahRacing only carries A-Arms and prop shafts

It's got a CGM motor mount and steering brace, and I'm assuming they're Yokomo CGM gearboxes as well. The chassis doesn't look like any Yokomo chassis that I've seen and I've had the SD, Rayspeed SD, and CGM SD cars.

The chassis your talking about has been out of production for 8 years, I doubt they would make one or show one on their web site..I have a chassis for a TC3 from them and they don't show it on their web site either..on the Yokomo SD cars Matt would know more than most, he drove for them..and knows them in and out..back in the day I bought a few of them from Matt..
