Post Still have the vibration...

Thanks Headbanger for the info. I did that also, and it still is in the one corner. I talked to another friend of mine, and he said that even if there is a slight bow in the dog bone, the that corner will vibrate, so I guess I am going to have to try new dog bones or find the MIP CVD's. If anyone else sees this posting, please lend me your wisdom on this situaiton. Thanks.

Default Re: Weird Vibration...

hi, i had the same problem when i finished building my SD, later i found that it's caused by the thread lock that i used on the set screw. DO not thread lock your universal set screws !

The reason why I am asking is that I recently got an SD, put it together, and doing the gear meshing, and checking for gear whine, and I noticed that my right front corner was bobbing up and down. I took it apart, checked everything, and even swapped dogbones from a different corner. But it is still there. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I used thread lock on the set screw, but in very small amounts, and I have no binding whatsoever. Just be careful when you use it that it doesn't get on any parts that could potentially bind.

if you havn't done it yet, take the universal out and make sure you can rotate it around with out it sticking. Also make sure the bearings are seated all the way in the steering block. If that doesn't work hire a priest to perform an exsorsism to get rid of the vibration demons haunting your car

Hi guys. greetings from Malta.

MATT.

If priests really worked like that some guys at our track would be hiring them full time, making them all rich in the process! There's no limit to what some guys would do to win.

RANDMAN.

I fitted Yoke alloy drive shafts on my SD from day 1. In fact the original bones are still in the box. Use the rear ones from the old TC Pro and TC Special all round. They are a straight fit. hey are lighter. And they seem to hold up pretty well.

I put a 12 x 1 mod motor in mine yesterday and will be playing mod this evening. Having spent the last 2 weeks playing with my son's TC3 I should be able to make a fairly accurate direct comparison between the two.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

I've just got my Square Ti front axels, Ti front and rear center shafts, Tobee Alumi. dogbone and suzuki front steering block.
I guess sometimes it help to have someone in Japan.

Default Car Info??

Alright,
Hey,
I am thinking about getting this car, and I went to Yokomo's site and now I am VERY interested. It looks SWEET. But looks aside, how does the car work? Does it hold up well? How about the handling? I would like to know your input on this car. Also, parts are almost impossible to get from my local hobby shop, or at least I would have to get them to special order them, who knows how long that would take. But, how is part support from, on-line or mail-order hobby shops, good? What are their websites?
Also, since MOST of you will probably put that the car is great and stuff, what are some option parts, to get for the car right off the bat, and what are some regular replacement parts to get??? also, I am in the USA, so places out of Japan and Europe is basically out of the question.
Thanks in advance,
Michael Patterson

...you suck I can't get the tobee craft driveshafts anywhere, I am just going to go with the Yokomo aluminum ones instead. I will be running mostly modified with the car, but the expert stock class is always a blast, real close racing there, so I want the lightest drivetrain I can get...

Hi Guys,

Randman, soon you will be able to. We are about 1 week away from receiving the Tobee Craft parts for the SD, and about 2-3 weeks away from getting the Excel Delrin outdrives for the SD and possibly Square parts as well

Steve, I actually just ordered the Yokomo aluminum driveshafts from your website instead. The Hitec race is coming up, and since it is maybe 15 miles from my house, I will be going for sure. I just want some track time on the car before I go to that race, so I really couldn't wait. I will order some of the tobee craft driveshafts when you get them in as backups though. I hope you can get square, I want their kingpins!

THeGame, I haven't tried the Losi Alfa and I don't really want to. hehe. I back ordered 2 Protoform Alfa 2.0s.... but who knows when I'll get them. I'll just have to see. When it gets close to the Nationals... I may end up having to get the Losi bodies if the Protoforms ones don't come in. I'd like to try it... just don't want Losi on my car..

Anyways, perhaps maybe tomorrow I'll do more testing with my Rear Shock tower setup. I think I really have to get my stuff in gear with the Nationals coming here. I just wish the track owner would change the setup out there!! Hmmmm maybe this weekend I can have it done.. hehe.

Hmmm sitting here thinking... maybe I will try out a Losi body.... I'll see what they have at the track tomorrow...... blah blah blah... Let me head out. Gotta order some parts before the weekend.....

I just ordered 2 protoform stratus 2.0 bodies, hopefully they will work as good as anything else out there right now.. I will definately get a Alfa Romeo 2.0 as soon as it's released though, I think that is going to be the hot body.
