Exclamation T.O.P Racing & Sy Brand

If you check out T.O.P.'s official website, www.top-racing.jp (English version), you'll see how SY and T.O.P. (Tokyo hobbies Optional Parts) is officially related in Japan. What's wrong with setting up a good team in HK? May be the HK's distributor is just doing their job.

Hey guys....

I understand that TOP are having trouble getting replacement diff plates. Since these are a yokomo part, anyone know the yok part number or better still an online shop (asian pref) that stocks them...

Cheers

Hi,

I have a question about the springs.
I'm using xray springs but they are a litle bit to long. Have the HPI springs the same lengt as the origenal Top Scythe springs?

The TOP springs are about 22mm long, same sort of length as the old-style Yokomo springs (as the car uses Yokomo shocks).

The new HPI springs from the Cyclone that people are using quite often now are 25mm long.

The best way to run longer springs on the TOP/Yokomo shocks is to get hold of some Rayspeed shock bottoms RS-15, these are offset down a little.
