I am not sure on the details of the sd drivetrain I do not have one yet. Does the shaft float between outdrives or does it float between gearboxes their is a big difference. the evo3 floats between gearboxes and that is wear allot of the problems are.

there is something I don't understand, "floating between gearboxes", cos the outdrives are "fixed" to the gearboxes, so the shaft just can float between outdrives
i'm gonna take a look at the evo3....

True...true.....but what I am certain of is that there wont be any threaded shocks, aluminum wheel hex's, or titanium turnbuckles to buy. Its all in there....the first time!

The most I expect to see anytime soon is maybe graphite composite arms or something like that. But since I don't bother with that stuff anyway, it wont matter much to me.


As for all this one-way breakage talk, I agree with Johnbull. So much of it is in how you drive and also how you build. I now own a Kyosho KX-1. Supposedly a car with THE weakest one-way ever. Yet, by building it as Kyosho says, and using their tips, the one-way has yet to get damaged in a crash or simply failed as some previous owners claimed.

The way I see it, deciding to hold off on buying a car, just waiting around to see if people have breakage problems is like waiting to see if the sun is going to rise! Its gonna happen! Like I said, on one end you'll hear "brokomo" and on the other end you'll hear "it never breaks ever".....and the truth is somewhere in the middle. Which end your closest to though, is entirely dependant on how well you drive.

eeh, yes. I follow the suggestion of a friend by attending this forum, which is
really much more interesting that which that you names. here it is
international and there is which models fan.

utieh: I've had three Yokomo kits, and only one has included decals with it. That was the original MR4TC. And I suspect that the only reason it came with decals is because the kit came with a body!
