NightKidZ: Again, as far as I understand Rayspeed is a similar project of Adachi. Obviously the Rayspeed parts are available everywhere through Yokomo and their distributors so in that way they're different. Rayspeed parts are e.g. listed on the new products on the Yokomo site while YMP products are not. The reason why YMP is only available in Japan is surely because they are usually produced in limited numbers and very expensive.

KilRuf: no problem!

Joel Lagace :

Two questions for you :

1) Concerning your Buds front bumper, is BRP6225 the only thing needed to complete the conversion just like you did. (Don't know if the plastic bumper is packaged with the protective foam also)

2) Can you give me the web adress, phone number or simply the name of your hobby shop that carry some Yokomo spares for the SD ?


Thank you very much in advance

All i used form the kit was the buds bumper. You will need to cut open the bumper to fit around the stock yokomo bumper.

Here is a picture of it:

I will try to get a pic soon of the top side with the foam off so you can see how i cut it. Basically its hand fit but the body post line up pretty much exact.


For parts go to RC OTTAWA WEB SITE and click on our sponsors link. Hobby 2000 has the yok parts

Anyone else still twisting/snapping their Yokomo carbon shafts, especially when running mod in the 10T/11T range?

I haven't tried another graphite shaft after my first one but I've been running the tobee lightweight shaft for awhile now and have had no problems at all. It's almost as light as the graphite one

Yes...I would like to see the RaySpeed chassis as well..

Speaking of RaySpeed...

I just received their new Spring retainers. can be used with the original ball ends and with the RS springs.

Also recieved the new Team Suzuki aluminum drive shaft cups.

Just got the new Yok..

Have a question did your tranmission case bearing for the input shafts feel a little dirty? Did you guys clean any bearing before putting the car together?

Dirty? No
Packed full of grease? Yes.

I left the grease in my bearings since I don't like to spend a lot of time maintaining my car. Racers who want more performance and a freer (sp?) drivetrain will remove the packed grease and relube with a light oil like Trinity's Royal oil. This will require more frequent maintenance of your bearings.

I was told the shaft should be used for stock racing per YokomoUSA. I think this is why AE went to the aluminum shaft in the FTC3 kit due to the weak composite one.
