Thats true, it's easy to find the Associated springs in any rate at just about any shop. You have to search for the Yokomo springs in the heavy rates.

I was wondering if any of you would have an idea where I could get some king pins ordered for my SD? I have tried many solutions while I try to find the stock part...lol my car has had traxxas and sone losi concoction that has not worked the best...lol This past weekend (today) I used a silver one from the old yok...that part is almost the same but still slightly different...I am looking for a $2.50 part to get my car back to racing...any help would be great!

Speedtech should have the kingpins. Square also has titanium pieces that would be much harder to break. Rainbowten should have the Square ones.

just got back this evening from the ROAR Region 11 on-road championship, this was my first race running tha SD after switching over to driving for yokomo.

qualifying was close as i was learning the car, and they were using the qual points system. i ended up TQ in the last round of qualifying, coming down to a tie with team losi driver geoff phelps, but i happened to have the fastest overall qualifying run, which was used as the tie breaker.

ended up winning the first two mains to bring home the win in the mod sedan class, not to bad for my first weekend witht the car.

i was running the new black special version of the car with all black carbon parts instead of SSG, and if you guys want i can post my setup, it's for high grip semi smooth asphalt, jus let me know.

peter

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Pete Robinson.

Congrats first of all on first win with SD.

Co-incidentally Chris Grainger also gave the SD it's first win in the British TC championship at Halifax yesterday.

Pete. "High grip semi smooth asphalt" is how you describe your track. That sounds pretty similar to ours.

Would you be kind enough to e-mail me your set up sheet on:

[email protected]

Thanks and regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

raced my sd again 2 days ago, all i can say is that this cars the bomb!!! i managed tq and won on the mains and to top it all of i managed to break the tracks fastest lap record and the race time record where i put in a 17 lapper and the previous record was 16. the car was absolutely glued on the track and had no problems with it. still not running the center deck and ever since i took it out the car was more stable and travelled much straighter


Jeff Werner: u can use yokomo mr4tc ones they fit fine

What's up guys? Just raced my new SD for the first time yesterday (Med grip semi smooth Asphalt with foams) and I had some problems finding speed. The car ran and handled ok but seemed to pause in the corners.

My basic setup was:

50wt oil all the way around, Orange spring front, Yellow spring rear, shocks all the way out front and rear on towers, 5mm ride height front, 5.5mm ride height rear, 2deg toe in rear, 1deg toe out front, 1deg camber front, .5deg camber rear and the rest of the settings were box stock. I ran plaid fronts with Magenta rear tires(26mm width).

Any suggestions???

I'd start by going stiffer in the rear, spring wise..... I'd try running a green or orange in the back also. Magentas are pretty soft aren't they? When I run foams I run 40f-37r shore....sometimes even 42f-40r. That should help the rear follow the front a little easier.....that is unless the front is digging in while turning...??

Peter would love that setup! What brand of springs are you running (yok, ray,AE or even your old tamiya)? Congrates on the great first outing!

You didnt tell me that you were running that soft tire in the rear go to a Harder Tire in the rear. and put a one of thoes Shims under the front mount. So you will have 4 Deg of caster..

kt tracing : where do you race in VA ? There is No spool out yet for the car, just use the Losi XXXs Sand paper and make your own. For droop, are you running Rubber tires or Foam ?
