Hi guys. I haven't post any message here for a long time. I used to drive a TA03F before, but once I see the new Yo SD, I sold my TA03F with the hope up (carbon chassis: lower & upper, aluminum shocks, a Rooster ESC, n with few other parts). I got my SD few weeks ago from speedtech and just had my first test run indoor carpet today with my friends. However, After like around 3 laps (hitting on the wooden wall at the side of the car few times), the front-right steering block broken. And here are some of my SD pics and my Pro pics.
Does any of you guy know is there any aftermarket Steering block like Aluminum or Titanium steering block?
If so, does it preform better than the stock one?
Or is there any other setup I can try to help reduce the breakage or parts? Well, I am using the stock setup.
Thank you vey much, guys.
By the way, is the steering block and steering hub carry comparable to SD from the Pro or SP? Thanks.
What else I should buy to make my SD stronger? Please let me know the parts number too. Thank you very much.
Team Suzuki makes steering blocks, very well made, fit perfectly on my SD. You can get them for about $30 at rainbowten.co.jp

Question?

When you guys talk about spools you basically mean a limited slipping diff right? Your building a slipper clutch within your diff right? Losi used slipper pegs instead of diff balls to achieve this.


Does anyone use solid diffs? as in no diff action. A locked diff? I had used those on my nitro car and found they caused alot of push off power.

I think there are Team Suzuki aluminum parts. You can search back through this thread to find the specifics.

Also, Joel Legace made a bigger front bumper. That should cut down on th breakage.

Square makes Ti axles and dogbones. Speedtech might have them soon. Tobee Craft make aluminum parts, too.

A spool is a locked diff or solid axle. That is at least the reference or terminology that is understood in Touring talk.

Hi guys. Does anyone know where I can order Team Suzuki - Aluminum Front Knockle for MR4TC SD in the United States web site? I found two stores online, but one is in Japan, and one is in Hong Kong. You know that Knockle is around $35, and the shipping from Hong Kong is like another $30. If there is another store in USA, the shipping will be around $7. That will be a huge different. Please let me know if you know it. Thank you.
