Let's put it this way - Out of the box, the yoke is way more adjustable than the Losi. You don't have to buy new parts to change the roll center, it has all three piston options included, threaded shocks.

The yoke also has 8 different spring options, and if you add the GT-4 springs, you have way more than the Losi. You can also set the pressure of the yoke shocks very easily, with the bleed screw.

Both are great cars, each have some weaknesses, and neither or them won the worlds

I had the 414M for a while and it is a very nice and well built car. Didn't drive it too much, but I really liked the design and quality.

I'm looking at 10 different Losi springs that I have in my pit box right now and if Losi makes a gas car it will have more to add just like the Yok...LOL

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH - SPEEDO.

Although I haven't been on this thread for a while, I still have my Yoke and love it. Drove it yesterday. hadn't touched it for a while.

Son Josh won the National Championship again this year with his TC3. Read all about it in BRCA or rczone.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Take the blue battery strap out and use strapping tape. That'll make it lighter.

You could use aluminum screws in select places, and titanium ones in more high stress areas. Also, I would look at titanium racing (www.titaniumracing.com I think) and see if you can find some titanium axels, not sure if they will fit with the aluminum shafts, but if they do it would be much lighter.

Hi Guys,

We have the new 1mm offset steering knuckle available (ZS-415S-1) online in the MR-4TC hop-up section. We also have titanium screw kit from Titanium racing coming soon, and also ball stud kits.

Macky,

I tried ordering that part number (ZR-007) but the yokomo guys told me it was wrong?

Thanks

Thanks...Couple XBOX games; Halo and Rallisport Challenge, a watch, some money and of course the usual clothes

Haven't raced for ever, probably will next weekend though, off-road isn't as much fun for me.
