i would suggest that ppl who think yokes are easy to break should learn how to drive and stop hitting concrete pylons with their cars, yokes are the car god would drive, except he's not good enuff to own one.

I don't know what brought out this brilliant post, but......Dude....ALL cars break, period! It could be from impacts, defects, design flaws, or just old or worn parts.....but ALL cars break. Yokomos included.

Thanks again...

I was talking about the Associated #2 pistons. I think the kit springs are just the old Stainress springs. The problems with going to Associated springs is that they are a little longer and you have to run the Associated spring retainers on the bottom because they are a little smaller in diameter too.

Erhhhhhh........
I have been driving my MR4 for what, 3 years now

I wouldn't call it a Brokomo by any stretch of the word.
Yes, there are some weak spots in the car which tend to break in an impact but I have not broken so much as an arm on the car for a year now
The last crash I had torn the whole front right suspension off And that happened partially because the car was handling so well I pushed it a touch too hard and it clipped the board... just

The yok may not be as robust as my TL01LA but it handles better.
Just my two cents
Cheers

NightkidZ: hes actually agreeing with you. He says that "ppl who think yoks are easy to break should learn how to drive..."

What I was saying to him is that no matter what brand of car it is, they all break at some point. He just seemed a little ummmm.....extreme ......in his defense of the Yok's.

But, hey.....at least he's dedicated!

on Jonas Anderssons car i have noticed blue rear universial shafts.

does Yokomo make light weight universials for other Yoke's that can be fitted on the SD?

would tamiya's light weight rear shafts work???

any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Jonas is probably using the blue universal from the MR4TC series..
Again nobody has the car yet to experiment if other LT universals will fit...

And no To Tamiya...it's apples and oranges..the 2 are very different.

i would never suggest that any rc car is UNBREAKABLE, that is a dream we may only enjoy in our sleep, i was stating that yokes are not EASILY broken, smash anything hard enuff it will bust, as for tamiyas, i will stay well away from comment.

Hmmmm, I'll just order a bunch of Yok Springs instead of AE ones. As for the pistons... AE pistons fit in the Yok shocks? I'll have to get some.

I'm also thinking about the Tamiya Shim kit for the Yok. I have them for my Evoluntion 3 for arm spacing, camber link height, and roll center adjustments. I just think they might do alittle better than the plastic ones that the Yok comes with. Tamiya 5.5 shim set 53539.

Anyways, let me go play with the car and set it up for some testing tomorrow.

Kilruf,

So does this thing accelerate? More so than the EVO3? One of my race buddies had a EVO3 and it had NO RIP. Car handled well, but was very sluggish. Weird. Basically does the Yok accelerate like a TC3? I am not a TC3 fan, but they accelerate like a mother f'er..............


Thanks Kilruf.

Kekkekek Yeah I know
But it wasn't so nice the way he was trying to put his point across, but well, he's on my side so what the hey hehehe.

I have a bit of a rep among the racers in my area (Singapore) as a die hard Yok fan ..... truth is I'm too broke to buy the "flavour of the month" car as and when they are released.

Just an observation.
I find that the better a car handles, the less accidents you have with it. However, because you tend to push a well handling car more, the accidents, when they do happen, happen at higher speeds and are usually more spectacular and destructive. That "could" explain why accidents with the MR4 tend to be expensive, the cars were going so well the speeds were much higher

Just my two cents worth
Cheers
