Ingo,
About the drive pins. I actually when and got a thicker oring that goes around the drive cup. The thicker oring's cover the entire pin. I haven't lost one yet.

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.

The top deck in the pics was just to test with, made it mainly to reduce the tweak the car would get by twisting, and to get a little more flex for looser tracks. The car was run with a full top deck at SoCal.

I put about 10 packs on it, and was able to break on 2 of them. First time my radio went nuts and I lost control, someone got on my frequency, and I wouldn't expect any car to make it out of that running, but I managed to rip the left side of the car clean off. Second time was in the first qualifier, they mixed pro mod with sportsman mod, and as I was entering the straightaway from the sweeper, there was a car parked behind the roof supporting pole for SoCal that I couldn't see, and bam. There went the right front. The problem I had with the car is it wouldn't just break 1 part in those collisions, it would rip everything from limb to limb...

LittleDog, my car is set to 3.5mm ride height (up front) at times. This is with rear shock tower on front, rayspeed springs all around, and AE shock retainers and normal ball cup ends like on the turnbuckles.

Right now the car is set to about 4mm up front. Play around with shock length. That might help ya some. I also switched to another shock end that allows me to use the normal screws on the Yok.

KT, how do you like your car?

littledog what size tires are you using. I know when I built my SD to the stock book setup and put on 63mm tires my car was under 5mm of ride height to start with. Not sure how your car is so much higher. The stock setup is for rubber tires, thats for sure. With the stock setup I could never run my foams down to 57mm like I do.

Johnbull glad to hear your car is back to the way you like it. Spools are not for everyone. I had to do what you said and be alot more aggressive and drive the car a little harder than I normally would. It is very strange for me to do that. I have always ran diffs. Up until about a month ago I never ran a spool. A learning experiance to say the least. I did struggle for sometime.

I'm sure I will struggle again when I try my new one way when it comes in. I bet I will hit a few things for sure!!!!!!

Default Having the same problems

Ok, this is funny because I'm having the same ride height problems as littledog. What I used was the same Yokomo shocks, AE springs, AE retainers and AE #7217 shock ends and screwed on to the shaft leaving no more thread at all whatsoever and still gets 5.5mm front and 9mm in the rear so I'm thinking something is definately wrong. What other shock ends will be shorter?

Can someone be kind enough to post EXACTLY what you did to achieve the correct ride height? I was scared to death when I mounted the extra rear shock tower up front and see my ride heights changed from 5.5mm to 9mm.. LOL.. Something is definately wrong here.

What was the actual problem with the Yoke springs beside being shorter? I'm confused.

Dan
P.S. also, can someone post their set with the rear shock tower up front? Trying to figure out roll center without experimenting. Thanks.

Sorry for my ignorance but I still don't quite understand. I've already screwed my shocks down to 63mm and still getting a 9mm ride height in the rear. So with 64mm, then it'll be even higher right? Now, did you use the AE shock ends? or some other brand? Cause the Yoke ends won't fit the AE retainer.

How I have my droop up front at 7mm and rear at 3mm. From using the HUDY blocks.

Please further enlighten me.

So, it's the Standard Yoke shocks, AE or Rayspeed springs, AE retainers and what?? shock ends?

Thanks again.

Dan

I've been using AE ballcups for shock ends and screwing the ball into the arm so you just snap your shock on. This is with using the rayspeed springs and AE spring cups
