that cause still personally like the DTM2 aluminum rack, just a fan of an aluminum rack versus plastic regardless of conditions. Keep the LD tranny and use the ball diff. Should be some nice clay setups out there on petit you can use

run them here, I haven't seen an issue personally like weird wear, etc. I could see it though if you are on say fine dirt or something there maybe.


Side thing, got in an SC sized chassis here going to be playing with doing an oval style YZ2T based vehicle.

The aluminum caps are supposedly finned to help dissipate heat from the fluid... but that's likely not making or breaking races for us. I think the more important factor is that they hold a slightly larger fluid volume. I know a few folks that have ran the alloy standoffs and shock caps, including myself, and some of us had problems with the hard coating wearing off in environments with abrasive dust (we're all racing indoor clay). The solution is to either: 1) run a softer shock standoff like the one PSM offers, lubricate it, and replace when worn or 2) Use the stock plastic shock standoffs. Personally, I would use the stock standoffs with the alloy caps. Having both offers no improvement in performance.

Default Carpet ST

Hello Gang!!!
Cain I remember you from our Durango days. Been out of indoor track for a few years. Thinking of getting an ST for our local track. My favourite class. I will be at Norcal Hobbies in California which switched to carpet. Havenít been down there since they switched to carpet from clay.
Open for suggestions. Between this and probably the TLR.
MES on here used to have the TLR
Pros?
Cons?
Thanks all!!

lol yeah those were some fun times. Sad to have seen them go, but that whole "Grass Roots" racing seemed in practice "we don't want to have a race team" racing.

the YZ2T on carpet with a few carpet specific changes is like a missile. Probably the only thing I do hope they look into and i heard it may be in the works is offering the a-arms in that material that the CAL3 / DTM3 a-arms are in for those who like to bang the boards hard.

If and when the time comes and I know I am for sure getting one I will message you regarding what parts I will need for carpet. Thx

A buddy of mine gave me a new metal gear diff kit. Would like to try it out so I would like to know what weight diff oil would be god for outdoor dirt/clay and indoor clay? Also are the .5mm steering block plates shorter than the 1mm? Having issues w/ the ball cups rubbing on the inside of the wheel!!

As you mentioned, I used to have the 22T 4.0 and my son still has the YZ-2T. My TLR had all the optional roll center parts and was very easy to drive fast with the rear shocks in the front of the tower. You don't need that many options on the Yokomo truck, it has more steering and is much nicer to work on. We found it a bit twitchy sometimes, but with the rear shocks behind the tower it has still all the steering you'll need and is easier to drive. I'd recommend making the holes in the body a bit larger and maybe adding the JConcepts Finnisher body to your list. If you are not in a hurry, they are working on a revised version with an improved steering assembly, chassis and rear hubs ATM.

The truck is junk because you don't get any reply to generic set-up questions? My oh my... Gear diffs are generally used on carpet and astro, not dirt. Sway bars are used for set-up adjustments and may be good or bad depending on your track. The 0.5 plates will make your steering more aggressive. I did not have any clearance issues with JConcepts Mono wheels, but sometimes things can be tight on stadium trucks.

I realize you didn't call it junk so don't misunderstand this. In my opinion not only is this truck not junk but it is not junk more than any other stadium truck out there with the possible exception of the Xray

I think the truck is great. The only issue I have w/ it is that the shocks leak a bit. I ended up installing the gear diff and it works great on dirt for me. Although when traction comes up the truck wants to roll a bit. That's why I was curious about the anti-roll bars. This is my first stadium truck since my rc10-t's back in the mid 90's and we didn't have that option back then.
