Those super thin inserts are awesome on carpet too.

May I know what is "forward bite"??

On what kind of track condition I shall use the thin yok-039M and 039F?? Which is more suitable for a tight and bumpy car park track???

forward bite is grip during acceleration. If the track is bumpy I would choose the 039M over the 039F, it will be slightly softer. The Sorex firm C's (their thinnest) have been working really well for me in my 36's. I haven't compared them side by side but they're probably about the same as a 039F

Hi all,

Need some guidance from you all.

First of all, what is the difference between mounting the turnbuckle to inner and outter position on the shock tower (front and rear) ? what would be the significant changes and when to use it? I heard from ppl that mounting to inner lower hole (towards center) would increase the stability of the car, is that true?

Secondly, the C hub has few holes on it. And again what is the difference if i mount the turnbuckle to different hole?

all comments are welcomed.

A shorter front camber link or one with a steeper outward angle, will give more camber change, more chassis roll and more initial steering. A longer or flatter link will give less initial steering and more on power steering along with keeping the chassis flatter.

Default Sway bar mounting

What is the difference between the mounting positions of the sway bars (upper v. lower)? How does it affect performance?

Default motor fan

I was looking through Xtreme magazines coverage of the Reedy race in the Aug 03 issue, and on page 118 they show a tiny fan mounted on a Yokomo chassis. Does anyone know where you can get that fan. I have looked several different places, but I can't find one like it.

The upper swaybars are used on a big open flowing track. And the lower swaybars are used on tighter small track. You can also interchange them. Like the top swaybar on the front and the mid swaybar in the rear

Allistar : Where can I get pics of the Rayspeed SD? I know its reviewed in the Aug edition of RCWORLD but I can't find it in Kinokuniya last I checked. Does Jerry have the mag in his shop? Thanks

Sorry for my ignorance, but how do you make that determination (which bar to use for which track)? The track I run has wide open banked sweepers with a tight infield, so I am sort of looking for a little of each. Would switching to an upper sway bar help with the sweeper but hurt transition quickness? How would that change the balance of the car (i.e. front bar only)?

Granted, I am just starting out with the car and I am a poor driver to begin with (but improving). I am just trying to see how mounting the bar higher (or lower) would affect the balance of the car at that end. I know there are a ton more settings I need to learn about, I was just trying to determine where I should start with the sways, that's all.
