whoops now im giving away secrets

naa i doubt it makes much difference really. It was something someone told me for 540 off-road racing where all the extra power you can get is a help I've never noticed a problem doing it on my on-road cars so i just kept doing it when I built the diffs for them too.

Has anyone tried the new center one-way shaft yet ? Part# SD-644TS. If it does'nt rain here Sunday I will test it out on my 540 spec car. I'm hoping for more corner speed being it is a spec class car.

The RPM ball cups will fit the yokomo ball studs. They are a little tight going on put work fine. They won't come loose as quickly as the Yokomo ones. You can just replace the ball cups with new Yokomo ones and the fit is still good. I just received the new Yokomo BX ballcups and ball studs and will be installing them this weekend. They are supposed to be an improvement.

Quick question..What shocks should i be using for my LCG? The reason why i ask is I'm converting my Rayspeed over to an LCG. The Rayspeed uses the Longer shock end. How long is the shock suppose to be?

Thumbs up LCG SHOCKS

XXXKAT,

I run the yokomo shocks with short shock end. Onto this I use the Rayspeed spring retainers and use Rayspeed springs. I have all four of my shocks measured at 61mm. This total length when fully uncompressed. I am running white springs at the front and green at rear. I have a stock motor fitted at present and 2 degree rear toe out.

Pops,

Thank you for the BD stuff will give it a try next time I race.

Hope this helps.
Calvin.

You want the shocks to be long enough to fully extend so you can add the proper amount of droop from where you mount the shock on the tower. It is a good idea to have the piston positioned somewhere near the middle of the shock body when the car is at rest. I think it was covered earlier in this or the BD thread to cut the little hat that goes in the bottom of the shock and position it upside down. This allows more shock fluid to be under the piston.
