I would like to try that too. would you need to drill holes for the servo posts?

Thanks a Million!!
check out the pic 3 posts above
use the included but not used servo saver piece on the part tree to build the servo saver, then swap the left and right steering columns (left to right and right to left), then rotate the servo. if you use servo tape then you don't need to drill holes, otherwise line up the servo, mark the holes, drill and countersink the 2 new holes on the bottom of the chassis

Chris Tosolini TQ's US Novak Championships in Modified Sedan with his Yokomo SD! Chris also was 3rd qualifier in 19t. Looks like Chris has found a sweet spot for the SD on carpet. We will have to get the scoop when he gets back from Wisc.

Good to see the SD doing well onthe rug...looks like the car is fast everywhere...sweet!

And it looks like he is just using a regular black SD with graphite parts here and there. Standard steering, shock tower, etc. No fancy mods.

Also I see he is using some blue spring retention on the bottom part of the springs...are those Rayspeed? and do they allow a person to get some of the lower ride heights vs the stock ones?

Thanks for any info...

Jeff
Jeff,

I'm not sure on this, but they might be associated sprigns (Red and copper) and the Rayspeed retainers (RS-15) will allow you to use the rayspeed springs and the Associated springs I believe. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what I'm speculating

The Rayspeed retainers work perfectly with AE springs, that's what I'm currently using...

I believe Chris is running his own chassis, made from a firmer Graphite.

Two Yokomo Rayspeeds win at Northwest Carpet Champs in Stockton over this weekend. Yokomo drivers Alex Siemantel wins 27 Turn Stock and Matt Howard wins 19 Turn Stock with Alex taking 2nd in that class too! The cars were dialed

Now do the Rayspeed retainers still work with the yokomo springs? I have had some issues with getting the yok springs to make the ride height that I needed. I can get the AE springs to make it with the AE bottoms and retainers...but want to copy some of the available setups using the yok springs.


Thanks

Jeff

Haven't tried that, but don't think the Rayspeed retainers will work with Yoke springs. Tobee Craft makes some blue anodized retainers for the Yoke springs.

Jason Erthracter pulled out the win in 1/12 mod with Matt right behind him for a 1-2 Yokomo finish there.

I was dialed in the modified main, but got punted by one of the AE drivers in the hairpin turn off of the front straight, cost me some time, but I was able to catch up to 4th.

I switched to Kisbey motors, and I've never driven anything this fast, took me some time to learn to get it under control. It was a very fun weekend though.

Getting the Rayspeed sd steering set-up "RIGHT"

Notice what i've filed away and the relocation of the spacer to the steering hub

That's about it really very easy to do!!
But your now able to space up those lower wishbones if you want to.......Oh and the bump-steer is gone

One of those AE driver's punted me also when I was in 3rd. By the time I was placed back on the track I was in DEAD LAST. My car didn't feel up to par but it was doing okay. I hate foams and will go back to rubber tire's once my Mi2 gets here. Good racing with you. Maybe we'll meet up at another race in the future.

Matt H- good run in sedan and 12th scale. Thanks for the roll out help. I'll catch you in about two or three weeks.

Alex S. is the man in stock. That was by far one of the best races that I've seen in a while. He's my new hero for 2004
