Make the SD BULLET PROOF hmmmm... Kevlar chassis perhaps?

But seriously, care to give a little clue as to what to expect? I am holding back on the RS conversion too.

Cheers

On the rayspeed chassis the hole for the antenna tube is just behind the servo, i was able to move my holder round slightly as i use a 9550 servo but i guess if you use a bigger servo then you can possibly not do this. Rick

Just wondering, is Yokomo crediting each of their driver with their own line of product?

They have YMP for masami, Rayspeed for adachi?? Or is Yokomo, YMP and rayspeed are totally different companies that make after market parts for YOKOMO cars?

I'm just curious

Hey friends,

I've just received and mounted my graphite parts (arms and 1 rear uprights in my case) and would like to give you my impressions about them.

First of all, they are very very stiff. I found the stock ones to give a quite stiff suspension, especially for non-graphite arms. I'm a little afraid of this stiffness, because it will require a perfect setup for the car to work properly. This means it will allow even less mistakes in setting up the car, even if the performances will be for sure higher. I bought them mainly to stop breaking them on big crashes, and I'm sure they will be strong !

Next, concerning the weight, there is a very little difference, let's say 3g for 4 amrs and the hub carriers... Nothing noticeable.

Finally, I was very pleased with the 1 hub carriers. The mould is slightly different than the stock one, it will be stronger than the stock one, especially the part where the balls are connected. Also, the mooulding quality is very good, as I was able to put the bearings in with one finger, they are not stressed at all.

Good job Masami !!! Looking forward to racing on friday to see how it works !!!

Isn't the suspense part of the fun, lol. I really cant say anything else at this point, but I'll be sure to keep you guys updated if I do hear something more that is cool to say.

IH- I used the lower mounting holes in the front and rear castor blocks and hubs. The spacer goes under the rear ball stud to slighly raise the ball allowing the rear to roll just a little more.

is this exciting new chassis gonna be like the AEST/fiberlyte one that gets all hyped up then cancelled? LOL

Fortunately this chassis shouldn't be cancelled, at least I sure as hell hope not, lol. It's coming from a new source, but I dont think anyone will have a problem ordering from them.
