Any comments on when the sd's first major race going to be? I think it would get a major publicity attractment if it got off to a flyer (in the hands of masami?).

My qestion is Will I be able to use my existing Yokomo springs. I sure hope so. allthogh I don't think they have change the dimentions on the shocks that would mean that the springs for the gas car will work too, giving you a wider range of tunning options.

I would think you could. It looks like it has the new low friction shocks which fit the original springs.

For the new LF Pro Shocks...the old springs should fit. but Yokomo also came out with a new line of Pro shock springs..

Default Possible Problems

I currently race a Tamiya Evo 3 and am very impressed with it. I am also very interested in the Yoke SD. I downloaded the manual of the yoke and made several discoveries. Its layout is almost an exact copy of the Evo 3 with the exception of its chassis stiffener. I mean that in a very good way and not a flame. So it should have similar performance. Its one way gear seems beefier than that of the Evo 3 and it uses the usual yake servo saver addressing what I believe are the only two weaknesses of the Evo. However, I did see a couple of things that worried me. First, the SD's carbon fiber shock tower appears to be attached to the diff case with only two screws. It seems a bit weak to me and may be prone to loosening easily. In the Evo 3, the shock tower is attached with a total of four screws and in sandwiched between the two diff case halves to boot. Second, the two diff case halves themselves are held together by only two screws as oppsed to three screws on the Evo 3. Again, this seems rather weak to me and will be more prone to lossening. And we all know that loose diff cases cause diff damage.

I will be getting a second car but have yet to decide between the new Yoke and another Evo 3. I guess I will just have to see the actual kit of the Yoke before I decide.

On the Corally C4.1 I used to run, the front and rear carbon shock towers were held by only two screws.

On the STR4-pro I had, the composite tower was held on by only two screws.

On the KX-1 sedan I have, it only uses two screws to hold the carbon shock towers.

Hell, the Schumacher Mission I used to have, uses only one screw to hold each tower on.

I think two screws are plenty to hold a shock tower on.

I forgot about the mission it's only one screw and technically the TC3's is also held on by 2 screws.

I think Yokomo has made enough cars to know what will work and what wont work

I dowloaded the manual too. The car SEEMS quite good so far except for a few "problems" :

1) There is precious little space for the electronics. Notice that even in the Yokomo pics of the prototype, they had to mount the tiny GM Purple esc on the edge of the chassis from the reciever. I believe the fact they turned the motor 90 degrees ard ate into the space reserved normally for the electronics of the belt driven MR4s. The fact that the steering servo is mounted the way it is dun help either.

2)There is no dedicated place to mount a transponder. There is really no space on the main chassis. I would think that a good place to use would be to cut out the hollow foam bumper and use that to mount the transponder.

3)The manual did not mention if the car will come with spare suspension mounting blocks of different heights to tune the roll center. I hope they do, its just a cheap plastic moulding. I dun wish to have to use washers to alter that setting.

From what ive been told from yokomo is that the springs and shocks are all different on the new shaft drive. So you will have to get all new springs.
