erm dont really know much else, that is CML's website, they distribute yokomo in the UK, so they have all the best setups for our types of tracks. you could check out yokomo usa if you havent already, im guessing they will have more than a few setups on their site. www.yokomousa.com

been searching a while as well for my LCG. most of the sites have BD or the SD CGM or SSG versions but rarely for the LCG (so far i've only found one and its in japanese so i can't understand anything except for the toe, droop and ride height settings).

anyway, i'm trying to aleviate my LCG's tendency to push out of corners... too much half-throttle understeer. any suggestion would be welcome.

I've only raced my LCG once but everything i've so far tried on it worked identical to how it worked on my BD. I think the suspension geometry is identical over the two cars so most setups should directly translate.

But other than that, try a little less droop in the front so it doesnt transfer as much weight to the rear wheels on accelleration.

Just on reading my post again, should that be more droop? I've got myself confused now Either way, change the droop so that the front of the car is around 1mm closer to the ground than it is now

You want less suspension travel in the front before the front tires lift off the ground. As you said you want less weight transfer to the rear on acceleration to help reduce understeer. Good starting point for the front droop on asphalt is about 6mm in the front and 4mm in the rear using a droop gauge.

Anyone know the 7and 5 degree castor blocks for the sd? I know yokomo makes some and I think I will have to goto the kingpin to mount my camber link. Anyone know the part #?

Default Yokomo newbie!

Hi all. Just ordered the MR4TC SD LCG. New to the brand (in this decade). Does anyone have any info / tip and tricks / setups to offer? I plan on running this shaft car in stock and 19 and keeping the T2 for mod. I guess I'll be frequenting this thread now, to suck up as much info as I can. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
