yes,RaySpeed conversion chassis is much better than stock one. RaySpeed's has more steering and easy to control.
most fast racer who in japan use RaySpeed's with SS shocks.
must Item.... !!especially for asphalt .

Randman, the shocks are as far out as they can go with the upper sway bar in the pic.

Maybe I'll get to test my setup with Mod this weekend. We'll see.

Anyways, still waiting on the SpeedTech Spool.... dum dee doo.... hehe....

I was asking a question yesterday regarding the servo horn position that no one response to it. May I ask the same question again.
If I mount the servo horizontally on my SSG SD, shall the servo horn mount at 12 o'clock position or 2 to 3 deg. off set just like the TC3 / Rayspeed?

not like TC3 / Rayspeed. The reason for those kits is that the steering linkage is lower on the servo saver side than on the servo side, thus a 12 clock horn position will not give the same L/R feeling.

If you're using the standard steering just turning the servo, just keep the horn to a 12 lock neutral position.

Have you guys found the right length to make them, that works, i just don't see how i can make it work with out tring to make them more than 60mm, and then making it to much longer will weaken it.

why does the kits have two end but tell you to use the one, which doesn't seems to work

also i have never come accross such a hard car to install the motor, the screws are so hard to get into.

please help want tp take iot for a run this weekend, and the way it it looking, the bin is looking better

regards brad p


Brad, if you need any advice at the track on your Yokomo, just let me know. They are a great car, albeit with a few little oddities. I reckon I have a pretty good handle on most things to do with the SD, so don't hesitate to come and see me at any race meeting if you need a hand.

OHBRAD: Ignor the 60mm length build them to 64mm and your ride height will be there

Hi friends. greetings from Malta.

RANDMAN.

It's simple. Put the shaft in a lathe. Machine down one end - about 1 centimetre (half an inch) till the end with the pin drops out. You are machining just the thickness of the hollow graphite shaft. Now trim it to length and epoxy or superglue the end back in.

It's dead simple.

SOMEONE.

Someone kindly suggested someone who makes a lightweight alloy spool for the SD. Can you give me a website, e-mail address or contact address.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
