durable and exotic was for the R2
its arms are like a 1/8 buggy's and it is absolutely impossible to find one in my country! but the car changes often and PAL option parts seem to be pretty expensive

Got a question for you guys.

I'm this close to eliminating the use of all my allen wrencehes and replacing them with hex drivers.

But, I need to know what size hex the set screws, for the swaybars sliders, use on the SD? They also happen to be the same size as the set screws Yokomo uses on their pinions, if that helps any.

Can anyone who is already using a hex driver for these set screws hit me with a size. Only people who know for sure....no guessing guys!

1.5 pinion
2.0 chassis
2.5 motor screws

I use the Losi set but Yok has their own along with others.

You will need 1.5mm for the set screws. A 2.0mm should work for just about everything else, but get a 2.5 as well. Nut drivers you'll need 5mm, 5.5mm, and 7mm.

BTW, I use Hudy tools, very easy to get from their E-Shop, and you can easilly replace the tips if you break one.

UK price for the EVO III is too high and The Hobby Company have a poor reputation for spares supply, whereas the SD is a better price, and CML have a good reputation for spares (even though SD parts seem to have been a bit slow reaching the shops, a friend broke his SD wishbone over a month ago, and couldn't get a part for at least two or three weeks).

Plus I already had a Yokomo buggy, and I liked the quality and handling, and the Yoke belt drive car always ran well locally.

johnbull: been testing yesterday and found out that the stratus 1 seems to be the best overall body for the yoke. i've tried the the stratus 1, stratus 2.0 and the alfa 2.0 and the stratus is the best handler, lots of grip compared to the other 2.. but i tested that on carpet which has tons of steering. will test the alfa tomorow on asphalt

For the motor mounting screws, its best to use a 2.5mm tool with a "ball" end, like the one supplied with the kit. It makes it much easier to adjust the gear mesh "off centre" without removing the rear arm.

Cheers

1.5mm.....I knew it! I had the chance to pick one of those up cheap a while ago, and passed on it. I knew I should have gotten it!

I already have an MIP 2mm (from my days with my first Yok) and a Losi 2.5mm for the motor screws.

I guess I'll have to go pay full price for the 1.5mm now.

Thanks for the quick answers.

you dont actually need to take out the rear arms top reach the bottom motor mount screw, just squeeze the arms up and insert the wrench under the arm and u can reach for the screw
