Default Yokomo single piece chassis? Hey Billy Easton you alive?

Ok, browsing through a mag the other day and found a picture of an alleged one piece chassis for the Yokomo MR4BX. Said it gave more traction... I know the worlds are coming so I'm sure this piece is being worked out. I also know about the "F" version and don't care too much as it's mostly cv's, body, etc. I also saw a "new" mounting point for the front camber links...anyone, anyone?

most of the UK drivers use the single piece chassis together with modded rear upper pivot plate and rear tower.

If you go to the Yokomo USA Website and click on the first picture of the Factory MR4BX,
It takes you to a bunch of pictures.
The very bottom ones show them fitting a tube chassis on the car?
Whats that about?
Is that an older chassis from another Yoke?

scoobydo: The Tub chassis you are referring to is actually the normal woven carbon fiber chassis with the Lexan belly pan sides mounted onto the sides of the chassis with screws and nuts. The pick they show of the under side is deceiving. The lexan sides are painted black so it looks like a Tub chssis from a distance but if you notice in the other pic of the closeup of the drivetrain guts removed from the car you can see the chassis with the black lexan sides mounted to the woven carbon chassis. The chassis has a mylar protective film put over the bottom of the chassis as well.

Yeah, Billy is still alive. RC Scoring Pro mastermind Doug can attest to this.

Well how can the rest of get ahold of one of the Yokomo drivers or anyone else for that matter? It would be nice to have more info on some U.S. setups! I don't race on carpet or in giant mud puddles. This isn't the most popular car either so it'd be nice to see some of Billy's setups....

If the chassis works so well why can't the offer it up?

Good luck getting the info. I e-mailed Yokomo USA for set up help but got no reply. Too bad as it is a good car but the lack of any kind of support is sorry. I mean how long would it take to post a set up on yokomousa.com?

you should get the new one way ball cups that are longer so you can run more droop on the front which is on the new factory version setup.

Thanks Funky.

Jelly are you talking about a oneway?, or ball cups? I can't see how ball cups would allow more droop? I could see it only since they contact certain parts of the chassis under extreme droop. Is that what you're refering to?

Glad to be of help buddy...seems like quite a number of UK drivers are using the DCRacing one piece chassis..it supposed to lower the rear diff by 3mm thus giving the buggy more rear grip...

sorry i meant the one way drive cups. new part number is bx-642b. allows you to take out the limiters in the front shocks. i've had problems with the UJs popping out but these the new drive cups fix that.
