I could see a tub chassis coming for the Pro4 as well....

I figure it this way, the Yok was designed to be more adjustable than the TC3, so if you add that plus the tub chassis for less flex, wouldn't you have the best of both worlds for a high traction car?

I know flex adjustability helps on loose track, but on high traction, to much tortional twist is not the thing to have if you want to be consistant. The tub addresses that.

Default Weight question

Hello Chris,

Why don't you use tape to hold your battery instead using a regular battery Holder (which is "heavy")???

Thanks,

Hugo

I was taking a close look at Tosolini's car in the photos from the Novak race. The graphite the chassis is made from doesn't look like the Yokomo graphite. Also, someone on this thread said they saw the car in person, and the chassis was very stiff, which should be impossible when using Yokomo's flexy graphite with just 1 top deck. Does anyone know if his chassis is custom made?

Also, I've recently been trying to get rid of the slop in the steering of my SD. The slop is almost exclusively on the left side (with standard servo placement). I've tried using different brand ball cups, plastic bag pieces between the ball studs and cups, and even attempted to use parts from the RS steering on my standard chassis to get rid of the slop. All of this has helped, but there is still some slop on the left side. Any tips or ideas on how to fix this problem?

Get another servo saver setup, cut the part off that's supposed to connect to the servo and no more slop... We'll see how the yok does when it gets warm on some asphault...

As far as Chris's car goes, he is using a thicker graphite chassis he cut himself. It is not the standard Yokomo black chassis.

The graphite is also much higher quality than what Yokomo includes in their kit. I know the stuff he has on his 1/12th scale is very stiff at just 2mm.

I could have sworn it was 2mm, must have been the upper pod plate...

Get that 1/12 chassis into production and I'll buy a YRX12, Jason was really fast with the car.

I was wondering the same thing. From what I can see, it is shiny like the stuff they use on Xrays not the dull black on the SD. Hopefully, Toso can shed light on this.

Propably similar stuff to the 1/12 scale. I dont think it's the shiny or dull that matters at all, it's the way the graphite is woven, and the way it is laminated. The graphite on the stock chassis has front/back and side/side weaves, but nothing diagonal which is why it twists as much as it does. If you throw in the diagonal weave, you will get a much more ridgid chassis... Or just buy a CGM chassis and make it easy

Yeah, he's right. To get rid of the slop, rotate the servo mounting position, it will also have more steering response that way.
