2Tenths,

I didn't watch for 9 hours, but I was awake I checked up on a regular basis, it was very interesting. I was able to see how the gears were breaking in by the reading on the MMS. I set the voltage to be at 2.5v, however, as time went on, the voltage increased on its own (by .15V, then by .09V, and then finally by .06V) I'm not sure why this happened, but what I suspect is that as the drivetrain freed up, it allowed the motor to turn the drivetrain easier, so the initial setting of voltage actually turn out to be more as the drivetrain become freer and more efficient.

I was breaking in the drivetrain on my R2, and the gears were fine after that. I learn this from Yokomo team drivers in Japan who will break in their drivetrain over night on a new car.

I've ordered a couple things from them and everything went good. I'd definately order from them again.

Thankyou very much MO for the pic!

As for precisionrc, I've ordered from them before and they had great service as well. So if you can't get it from SpeedtechRC or KTHobbies, try Precision....

is there any type of pin cushion made for the Yok? my previous car was a TC3 in which I used IRS pin cushions, this kept the stock plastic outdrives from getting a "groove" in them from the pin that goes through the dogbone. I have looked at drilling out the Yok dogbone so that an IRS tc3 pin cushion would fit on it...has any one tried this?

The reason I ask is that after only a couple of weekend of racing the plastic diff is already starting to get a groove in it from where the dogbone makes contact, I ran the same TC3 diff halves for an entire year with the pin cusions installed.

Thanks
