So now I have to use the 3rd hole...
use the hole the kit says to use and that is it. you can go out but you will loose only 5% travel

Cool Chris- good to see that I was on the right track and not feeling things in the cars setup that were not what I was thinking I was doing...lol I first made this change when running on carpet with rubber tires and the car was like a rocket getting into the corner.

Does Yokomo make a 0 Degree Kick piece for the SD? I think the stock one is 1 deg kick.

Jeff, just add the notched shim in the back block. Or you can buy the Aluminium blocks (both fronts) that are set at 0 kickup.

Rand... I thought the kit knuckles were offset 1mm. And you can buy the optional 0mm offset knuckles or get the Team Suzuki knuckles that are .5mm offset. Also, Rand... did you try standing up the shocks to make it feel more agressive? And did you play with rear droop? I found it also helps with a loose rear end.

any one know where I can order Square products? I seen on a Japanese site that square made some teflon spacers for the arms. The ones on my car are a little screwed up from trying to put the car together in a freezing cold garage. cold + plastic = *[email protected]#$%
Chris T, who makes the white ball cup you are running and the Yok battery strap?

The shocks are out all the way on the front, and 1 from all the way out on the rear, and on the arms they are 1 hole in from the outside hole. 5mm rideheight, -1 camber, 3 deg toe in, 7mm front droop, 5mm rear, RS #3 pistons & AE 50wt oil (going to 40 weight)

I bought my square stuff from precisionrc.com

I've got the SQUARE input shafts, the teflon spacers, titanium king pins, graphite bumper plate, and body post stiffeners. Here's the address:

precisionrc.com has the Square stuff at a good price with fast shipping. The yokomo battery strap is a SSG piece made for the SSG MR4TC Special.

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

Haven't been in for a while but I'm impressed. Chris T in here too. WOW!

I still run my 2 SDs. The standard looking SSG car I now run in 21 turn stock, but I have done quite a bit with the mod car since the pics in Yoke USA site.

I am now using a front spool with Rayspeed towers and top plate, and I have made a 3.5mm carbon chassis myself. This has the Rayspeed steering geometry and has the cells further forward and more towards the centre. It feels much more responsive.

The Yoke carbon centre shaft didn't last with mod so I am back with the shortened TC3 carbon one which is the lightest of the lot anyway.

I have just received the graphite arms, hubs and diff cases and will put those in before the weekend.

Next outing with mod: Christmas Cup meeting, 21st December.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Good to see ya back in here Joe.

I wanted to do that TC3 shaft mod, but the new TC3's use an aluminum shaft, and all of the shops down here just stock that one now

Did they have a bit of slop in them? I had some that looked just like those, but a bit sloppy... I switched out to B4/T4 ballcups for now.
