I met Masami maybe 6 years ago, and his english wasn't great, but I've heard he has gotten a ton better... He is still a very nice person though, but that's propably more of the culture, us Americans have short fuses

I think he got it from Steve at Speedtech. You can also get it from the various shops in HK and Japan.

racenutt123- I got all my tobee stuff from speedtech

randman- just make sure you have the usuals, like castor blocks and steering blocks and maybe some arms. An extra set of gears for the oneway is nice just in case as well.

I have the SD Black Chassis, what are you guys doing to rid the car of the tweek problem? I removed the middle chassis stiffner and it hasn't helped.
Those of you that have switched to the rayspeed conversion, have you experienced any tweek problems with the new chassis? Also can you run the rayspeed motor mount on the SD Black chassis?
What is up with the weak arms on this car, I have broken two in one days and they were extremly light hits.

Yup with the standard setup / Layout the car has an on power push, especially on the left handed corners. It's not tweak, it's the balance of the car that's in cause. To get rid of it, I've switched my servo 90. Info and pictures about the mod you can find them on the yokomo USA forum.

Also, the arms, C-Hubs are the weak parts. It seems like each car has it's weak part, ofr example some people always breaks the C-Hubs (always the same side), I've never. But I've broken several left rear arms... Anyway, the graphite parts are out now and should be available in US soon. I have them (arms and rear hub carrier) and the material is very strong.

With the balancing issue, you could also run a bigger spur gear. This will make the motor sit further (right) of the chassis to help tweak the car.

racenut123- Yes I'll be at stockton this saturday, there should be a really big crowd this weekend. The only thing I changed from my asphalt setup was one rate stiffer front spring and of course the tires. The tobee center shaft is alot lighter than the stock one, I never weighed them so I don't know the difference.

Default Rayspeed Chassis Kit

What properties does the Rayspeed chassis give to the car? I'm going to be running mainly on carpet.

Thanks guys, i'll try the servo mod and a larger spur gear. Do you know if the rayspeed motor mount will help as well?? Also where on the Yokomo site can you find the pictures for the servo mod? Lastly, are you refering to the Yokomo USA site?

just installed the rayspeed cups with AE springs on the rear. I did notice the cups rests/touches on top of the arms (Springs are screwed on the outer hole of the arms). Is this fine?
