Not-super-important-news flash: Yokomo Web (www.yokomo.co.jp) updated their site yesterday. They have the part numbers now for the new ceramic bearings for the SD (under New Products).

I have used the square axles in the past, and they seemed to be very strong, nice quality stuff.

I havent even started the build on my RS car, so no tips for ya.

On the subject of aftermarket chassis' How many people would be interested in another chassis for the SD? I'm going to start running a prototype, that is made out of the best graphite avalible, ultra strong, ultra stiff. I'm having all of the carbon fiber parts replaced with the new stuff, but I'd be aiming at $100-120 for a complete conversion to the new graphite. I took the Rayspeed chassis to the person selling me the graphite, and he laughed at the quality. It has fibers going front/back, and side/side, but nothing sideways, which is why the car has so much flex. This person is not new at all to the graphite business, he used to supply HPI, and Kyosho with CF sheets for their production stuff, I'd just be looking at a much higher grade stuff. Any interest?

I believe 700 would be close to 65, 600 would be close to 55, and so on.

I got my 9550 the other day and have started to do the servo rotation mod.
I've switched the bellcranks so the servo saver is on the other side and put in the alternate upper half of the servo saver assembly so the arm is rotated 90deg.
I have not been able to find any good pics of anyones servo mod to see which way they mounted the servo, with the servo horn inboard or outboard.
It looks like I could probably mount it inboard and use the same turnbuckle but risk having the rod end coming close to rubbing the shaft at full travel. If I mount it outboard, then I'll have to find a longer turnbuckle.
Any opinions?

Steering blocks:

SD 415 Trailing arm
SD 415S Non trailing arm

What are the handling effects of using one over the other?

The non-trailing blocks should give the car more initial steering.

Default Yokomo 415S Steering Blocks

Joel
The 415S steering blocks have 0 mm of trail and will make
the steering slightly more responsive

Someone posted pics within the last few pages, just check back... It's really self explanitory, and easy to do.

actually the orginal turnbuckle is long enough for mounting the servo outboard~~
and if the servo is at neutral position when the front wheels are pointing straight the tie rod will not hit the shaft
