I think the rates are wrong on that chart for RaySpeed Springs. I think the AE Silver/Blue combo is the same as RaySpeed Yellow/Red.

Hey wait a minute, I'm looking at the parts list for the SD, and for the shock springs here's the order that is listed from softest to hardest:

Black(soft)
White
Blue
Yellow
Pink
Stainless
Green
Orange(hard)

Now, I know that the GT4 springs which a little longer than the TC springs have dark green in their color set. ????? ????

I have question for you guys out there. I was recently racing with SD, and when I came home I notice the pin holding the one of the center drive cups was missing, Yokomo did not have an individual part number for this other than with the cup as a kit, but does anyone know another direct replacement for the pin? Thanks.

Anyone with the Black Special instead of the SSG version?

I would like to know whether you will change the setup different than the silver version. Thanks for any suggestion.

When I build my black SD my car wieght is around 1523 grams. I think SSG is slightly lighter than this. But I am using very small ESC and lightweight receiver though. I just install KOSE lightweight inshafts and rear universal at this moment. I will install the titanium screws and graphite middle shaft from shooters next time.

i run the black version of the SD, though is do it for looks, not a fan of the silver stuff

don't think that your setting will be different between the two types of chassis material, though i have heard rumor that the silver stuff is softer than the run of the mill black carbon.

SD ran very well this weekend, if anyone here has ever considered running a double thick top deck, i highly recomend it. i tired it this weekend and found that i like the overall feel of the car better, it does away with the 'lazy' feeling that i thought the car had. if anyone is interested in the entire setup, just let me know.

Default Spring Madness!

The reason Yokomo spring charts seem inconsistent is that there are (afaik) 2 sources being used. First is Yokomo's own spring chart, supplied with the springs, which rates blue as stiffer than white. Second is CML's test chart, where they measured springs from stock, and got white stiffer than blue. Stainless is a bit of an odd one out because it doesn't really sit where it's part number suggests, because of the different material, so it's also between yellow and green, like pink.

To avoid this madness I don't use the 1.3mm springs (blue and black), and I don't use stainless. White is pretty soft anyway.

As for the springs, do the good ol' finger squeeze to figure which one is stiffer, but then again its not perfect way to measure the tension....but it works in a pinch!

I run the black SD and am running slightly modified versions of setups for the SSG -- no problems.

Hmmm, most anecdotal evidence has been that the black SD is lighter than the SSG. Might be nice to see a similarly mounted car weighed in side by side to confirm this though.

Cheers, Kaizen

How free is the drivetrain on the Yok SD as my Tamiya EVO III S has a tight spot that no matter what i try and do it just does not free up which is really getting on my nerves.

The drivetrain is very nice, I haven't heard of anyone with a problem with it. just shim it like the instructions say and you'll be fine.
