I really wish this car still had the following it deserves.
The original version SD is super stiff and an excellent carpet racer.
Now if I could get some good starting setups to get me going in the right direction, Id be happy.

Have a look here http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk
look under Downloads - setup sheet and select Yokomo MR4TC SD. You should see a whole list of setups that are good starting points.

Thanks for the responses.
The track I am running on is carpet how ever the surface has a little bumpiness to it. At least now I have a better direction to move in.

I love this car

Its just as fast as some of the corallys/xrays at my track.

I switch back and forth between my Jrxs and Mr4tc sd
I think the yokomo is a little faster.

its all i nthe gearing and setup. i can easily keep up with all the xrays and all that at my track. motor and gearing makes the biggest difference. but the car itself is great.

Unhappy Slop in ball joints

There seems to be an excessive amount of slop in the standard Yokomo SD ball joints and I'm looking to replace them with alternatives. Has anyone done this on their SD's? If so, what joints did you use?

Thanks

The anti rollbar open loops are a great alternative. mine are very old and still no slop. may even need to give them a squeeze to loosen their grip when new. or try the bx ones. not sure if their better but you can get the ball studs off without removing the ball joint. some people use the fasttrax ones too.

Cheers Racingbod, I'll give the anti roll bar links a try

Another alternative that we do is to use RPM ballcups.Nice snug fit.

all i do is add low friction o-rings to the ball studs to kill the slop. arms still move freely and without binding.
