I would think so too! You only raced the car once then you sell it the next day! Hope the R2 works better for you..just my 2 cents.

Only raced once because I got the car dialed in perfectly in 4 packs, dont think it could have gotten any better with more tuning. One thing it lacks is the durability that the R2 has, that's why I'm making the switch, although I do want to try out a black carbon SD sometime soon.

Yup I know, but it helps a lot if the tool you are using has a "ball" end. Its easy to strip the hex on the screw if you insert a normal tool in off-centre, well it happened to me before anyway

Anyone had this happen to them before? My Yokomo carbon prop shaft is 'twisted", the two crosspins at the ends don't line up anymore The shaft is still in one piece and the carbon fibres are not split, just "twisted" like a wet towel

BTW I only ran about 10 packs thru the shaft, 9 double P-94 motor, no crashes.

Cheers

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

DARKSEID.

Everybody beat me to it. Yes indeed those are the sizes you want.

EVERYONE ELSE.

Interesting discussion about why Yoke, not EVO 3 or R2.

Well, very simple in my case. I can eliminate the EVO 3 immediately on 2 counts. Firstly I don't sell Tamiya but one of my competitors does. Secondly I can buy 2 SDs for the cost of 1 EVO.

With the R2 the situation is different. I did try to buy some, and would have probably prepared one for myself and one for my son to race next season, because I do think it is a very interesting car, but Alex racing don't seem interested in selling cars in Europe, and their Euro distributor seems even less interested, judging by his web site.

However having now had my SD for some months I really have no regrets. It is a pleasure to work on. Parts are very readily available, and the exchange of information with other SD owners is excellent.


RANDMAN.

I'm not surprised you complain of flex, without a top plate! I don't think you gave the Sd much of a chance, did you, though I can understand your fascination with the R2. I think it's a great car too. I could have had an R2 if the manufacturers showed any initiative towards selling them here.

Since they couldn't be bothered I'll stick with what I've got.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Default Center drive cup pin...

Hi racers,

did you used Loctite or sth. similar to glue the pins in the center drive cups?. I have heard that some racers have problems with loosing them...

Thanks,
ingo

But you'll end up having to buy spares from overseas as well - and I don't really want to have to wait a week or more for parts if I can get stuff off the shelf at the local shop for the Yoke. Plus you'll be the only person within 50 miles running one, which makes setup tips hard to come by.

RACE 2:

1-second off of TQ! And that run was not clean. Finished 3rd becuase of my driving error and spent some time showing off the silver chassis(upside down in a corner)

With the Buds bumper on and AE springs for tuning i am very happy with this car!

I still working on a push situation but the car is still fast. Rubber on carpet is not as bad as it used to be. Although i still rather run foams.

I'm surprised you say the car lacks durability when you've only raced it hard for four packs - I've raced it hard for three months and I haven't broken or damaged a thing (granted my track has forgiving barriers and I don't crash very often).
