I do like those cars, but I wouldn't recommend running them with those step pin tires

Matt I ran the car and it did free up. i took some of the shims out because Patt T. one of the yok drivers from socal told me wiht the stock ones it was to tight. I took one out from both the input shafts and put 2 on the long side of he diff pushing it away from the input gear, so it would spin freeer I thought? Should I go back to stock everything to see who that goes? Also do you guys shave the the diff cases like they do on the tc3?

Thanks

Xazn.... the car parts are interchangable there is some mods that you can do to make the cars faster then what they are but it take a dremel and cutting. make sure that you use Center one-way as well as a front one way degrease all the bearings to kinda free it up. When i ran the car i didnt use a belt tenisor cuz it put to much pressure on the belt. you have to most recent versions of the Mr4-Sp if you have any question just PM me haha :-)

teamae- I haven't heard of anyone that has had to shave their gearboxes. I suppose there has to be some small production tolerances for the gearbox's so you might have to take a shim out from the input shafts, just make sure there is no play in them or you'll probably go through gears pretty quick.

The mod looked as if its gonna give more side to side flex, but still retaining some of the forward/rear stiffness at the front end.

Gezuz that setup kinda is fashioned like the split toplate that Xray has for their cars. Should let the car flex a little more . Might be good for asphalt but I don't think you would want that for carpet.

I was wondering if anyone has compared the stiffness of the chassis when running 2 top decks (unglued) versus 2 top decks glued together? Does gluing them together help a lot or a little? I've been running 2 unglued for a while and was thinking of gluing them together.

Peter Plastic - Is your drivetrain free yet? I'm curious to see the results.

I received my Shooters lightened motor mount and alum top deck mount with additional horizontal camber mounts today. If I get them installed tonight, I'll post some pics. The parts look very nice. A little darker blue than the stock Yokomo motor mount, but should match the Suzuki stuff well. I got them at www.precisionrc.com.
