Not sure whether this is mentioned before...

Notice in the Rayspeed pics, with the steering servo is rotated 90 degrees, the link from the servo horn to the bellcranks is in a different position, ie nearer to the center now.... just like the TC3. This might be the key to solve earlier gripes about the unequal steering throw of the stock setup.... comments?

Info on the car is still scarce. More info usually comes out close to its release on September.

This has been discussed before. The steering throw is still not equal even with the servo turned 90 deg. This is maybe why on the TC3, the manual suggests mounting the servo arm a few degrees off center. I just adjust the EPA on my radio to fix it.

Yeah, but the on the Rayspeed setup, they put the link between the 2 bell cranks on a piece of graphite extension instead of on one of the bell cranks. Will that make a difference?

The only source of info so far is an article in the Aug 2003 issue of RCWORLD and the Aug issue of RC MAGAZINE. They are both Japanese langauge magazines.

The info in Jcube was actually from RCWORLD.

That Rayspeed chassis and shock tower setup looks really good to me - just common sense improvements to the basic design. Maybe it will appear in the UK when CML pull their finger out with parts.

Just noticed a couple of points unanswered on previous pages...

AXLE SHIMS - Yokomo make a 6mm shim set ZC-S60, I have one 0.13mm shim on each axle which takes out the slack.

SUSPENSION MOUNT SPACERS - Of the eight supplied, the 4 notched spacers are for adjusting kick-up/anti-squat by 1 degree at a time, the 4 plain are for raising the mounts by 1mm to raise roll centre.

Thanks!
I will order them next time

For the 1mm spacer, should I raise all the car Roll center and then try to change kick-up/antisquat setting?

I did that with a 1 way setup, and the car seemed very responsive. For someone who likes to drive a smoother reacting car, I wouldn't really suggest doing it, but I like my stuff to turn aggressively.

the car is more responsive...
You may also want to wait for the uncoming release of the Rayspeed front and rear shock towers.

Cut it down, and sand it right, and it will look like it's stock.
