i wonder why the changed the position for the front sway bars. the early pictures show the swaybar mounted on the upper deck with the sways going towards the lower shock mount. now the new pics have the sway mounted on the bulkhead. is it to make the front and rear sways symmetrical?

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Just one thing I'm not seeing that I would have liked.

The TC3 now has a spacer between the wheel bearings. Thus no matter how much you tighten, the bearings don't bind.

So simple. The MR4 has no spacer so overtightening wheel nuts can cause the bearings to drag. Now it looks like the new SD doesn't have this pacer either.

What a pity.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

You know, I think it's very telling that the best criticisms we've come up with for the car so far are "I don't like the plastic battery strap" and "I wish Yokomo had put a tiny plastic spacer between the wheel bearings"!.

I'm a big fan of good design - and this Yoke just seems to have all the shaft-drive design principles spot on.

Lets hope it runs right on the track.

(PS I bought a Pro 3 becasue of it's design - shame about the material quality - I've stiffened and shimmed it up now and it's a good car)

Wheel bearing spacer is not a big deal. The TC3 has had this in their Team Kit and FTTC3 for quite a LONG time. I am sure you can come up with something to use as a spacer.......

This looks like it is going to be a good car. I think we should let the car actually get here before we start wishing and wanting!

This thread gets funnier and funnier as I read!

ACTUALLY- for those who own the MR4 TC SP, use the clamp hexes instead of what comes in the new one. For some reason, the way they work, those clamp hexes wont get any closer to the bearings past a certain point and its impossible to tighten the wheel nuts too much. Ive tried but never couold get it to bind.

YOSHI.

Quite right. That's what I use in fact on the MR4, but I do like the idea of a spacer, just like they have in real cars.

Still, like RBLove says, these are little things. The car itself looks great and i'm sure it will be.

I can't wait for mine, even though my Sp still gives me pleasure and wins.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

icon: I don't know why they changed it in the newer pictures. On the spec sheet, they say that we'll have the option of mounting the front swaybar up top or down low. Maybe they just wanted to show it in both positions.

it will come stock with the lower mounted swaybars, pretty much like on a tc3. It looks like the upper swaybar setup from the mr4tc special will fit on the car with no modifications if you want to mount it up like that.

The one on my SP (front right) would bind all the time. I would have to loosen the hub and then retighten it. I tried not tightening the wheel very much, changing the bearings, swapping the inner spacer from the other front wheel hub, everything I could, but that one side would always get tight and when it did you could feel the bearing binding. Now that I think about it, it may have been the axle since that's the only thing I never changed....
