Check a few pages back, the stripping gear issue was covered, basically you just need the correct shimming and there wont be any problems.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

How right you guys are about this being a good, fast moving thread. I wrote about tyres and inserts 24 hours ago and it's now 2 pages back.

V12.

The part number for the Schumacher grey inserts is U6700C. I believe the Schumacher importer in Germany is CS Electronic.

YOKOMO KING.

RC Zombies has done the servo mod just as I did. You can see a picture of my mod at the top of the previous page. It's simple and it works.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Default question for johnbull

Greetings!!

A question for **'johnbull' ** if you dont mind

How would you rate the SD to the SP? Since you have driven both of these cars , hows the performance like, do you like it better are they fast or easier to drive?? What are your views?

Jus curious to know.as the SD looks interesting... are there complains about broken stuff like shafts etc .....

btw its not about the shaft vs belt thingy

Happy Racing!

Hi Marzin. greetings from Malta.

I have had MR4 TCs since they were introduced. I ran the Special in 21 turn stock this season.

I have to say that it has been one of the best handling cars I have had. It gave me a few wins and the championship.

I had to buy the SD of course. My son races a TC3 and although I am not sure it ever handled as well as my Yoke, it was certainly more free due to the shaft drive. So when Yoke introduced their own SD I just had to have one.

I can tell you that the SD has all the advantages of the Special, plus the advantages of shaft drive. In just 3 weeks I have got it to handle as well as the Special, so now I am actually quicker.

I think this is going to be even more useful as I move back to modified class next season since efficiency and therefore duration are important in modified.

As far as breakages are concerned, I must say I am impressed. I gave the SD one very big bash on it's first outing and broke a front shock tower........only. But if I tell you I left a big dent in the wall too you will understand that the SD is a truely strong car.

In short, I don't have a bad word for it.

Go buy one. You'll like it.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

johnbull, what C hubs are you using on your car? How do they differ from the SD ones? I really like the setup you have with the trinity top pivot mount, just wondering what blocks you are using.

Got the new one-way in the car now. Can't wait to try it out this weekend. It's a small track, but I've done well there with one-ways in the past. I might have to make some changes to my dual diff set up, but we'll see.

I was surprised to see the black plastic gears for both the one-way and the pilot shaft gears. Why no delrin gears? Doesn't really matter to me, I was just wondering if the change was made for the sake durability?

I had to remove one shim to accomadate the one-way and new gears, but everything is smooth as can be.

If you purchase the replacement gears they are the delrins. I'll replace mine as soon as the black one wear out.

Make sure you keep an eye on those black gears. We have had some problem with them wearing quite fast. The white gears seem to last forever though.

The white gears for the oneway are the same material as the stock gears in the dual diff car? The stock gears seem to wear great so far...has anyone really had any gear problems?

Wanted to ask a question on projection of new parts...I ran the Losi sedan for a couple of years. They progressed from the stock parts to a graphite part in terms of arms, hubs, ect. Does yokomo plan to put out any graphite arms and such?

Yokomo will probably release graphite parts as they did with the MR4TC... You can get the steering linkage in graphite.

I just got the replacement gears for the one-ways (part # SD-643) and they are black. Is there a different part # for the white delrin gears?

Well, according to Yokomo Japan both are same(material). As matter of fact, they will be all black very soon.
Reason? white color will change in time and it does not sell as much as black ones.
At least that's what they told me in Japan. Personally I like white ones, who cares about shelf life(color).

Hi guys. greetings from Malta.

My goodness. I take my eyes off this thread for a few minutes and another page has gone.

RANDMAN.

The front C hubs are normal MR4 ones. These were Fastrax but Team Suzuki and other firms make them. The only mod I have done to them was to remove the top arm brace - simple saw and file job.

The advantage of using these, apart from them being stronger and keeping everything more rigid, is that they come in 3, 4, 5, and 7 degrees so you have that much more caster adjustment.

Actually I have just answered the same question to KOMKIT on the Yoke USA forum.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
