I had some breakage problems with my Yok special when I got it but when I first got my tc3 I could hardly keep it together my xxxs has some issues with the rear hub carriers. It is to be expected to break some parts. Now my tc3 is very sturdy and I rarely break anything. Its just a matter of finding the week points and I am sure yokomo will do this like they have done before. It will be a good car.

I love all yokomo products and that will defenately be my next kit! I hope they keep it just like that with all the SSG parts. The chassis on the MR4 would be good for 3 minutes into the race and then it wouls become butter once the motor and bateries would heat up the parts. But Ill defenately give the new car a try.

Does anyone know if the car will include molded graphite pieces for the rest of the car or regular composite?

Thats a big 10-4 on the cornering speed of a YOK. And the buttery bend of the chassis too. I loved the MR-4... until it was realized that a TC3 (in stock class) would do the one-two-whammy up on it. But this was way before the Special even came out. Heck, i got it when it didnt even have hi-efficiency belts in it... or were even made. But nothing, at that time, compared with a mod in that MR-4 through the chicane! >sigh< Then there were the melted diffs... and hard to get too spur gear... hot motors (not that i ever overgeared or anything) LOL I think Masami would help design a car that wouldnt break as easy... if we were all robots like himself! Have you ever seen that guy drive?! Hes anamatronic i SWEAR!

Hi guys. greetings from Malta.

You all know I'm a great Yokomo fan. I have run an MR4 for 3 years and this season I presently lead the Pro Stock class in our Nationals with just a third of the season left to run. I have absolutely no complaints about the Yoke SP. It's probably the best car round the bends, but lacks efficiency.

So the new Yoke SD has got to be the car of the future. I see that the drive shafts are straight for a change....well done.

If I may be allowed to criticise constructively, we know how limited the space for the electrics is on the Yoke SP. By turning the servo through 90 degrees you move weight forward, which is good, and you increase space for electrics, which is even better. Why haven't Yoke done this. I would also prefer to have a tub chassis for I have seen so many peoples cells fly out on flat bed chassis cars. That side lip on moulded chassis is a great one for rigidity, it keeps your cells in place, and it certainly helps protect your electrics from broadsides.

Would it be too late to do that.

I'm putting an order through for mine today.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

johnbull- It's a proven fact that Yokomo's tub material can't hold up in the high heat. Every team member that I had talked to has said this. By Yokomo going to the graphite chassis it should give the car more stability in hotter weather. Some guys around here have started to tape the batteries in.

Default turning hte servo thru 90 degs

i don't think yok have done this because it makes the chassis wider. Most people don't want to butcher their servos so having it in this position allows the servos to remain unbutchered and chassis narrower.

On flat-chassis cars I think that taping the batteries in is almost always the way to go. Even the nicest battery hold-down systems often give you a little bit of play, especially when you are using cells of varying sizes (Sanyo, Panasonic, Gold Peak, etc) in the same car.

With some tape on there, you can get the pack stuck to the chassis to the point that it will never move, even in the hardest of crashes. You can't go wrong there.
