Well my Yok sure as hell accelerated pretty damn fast! haha. So no problems there. As for the Evo3. I don't seem to have a sluggish one. My Evo3 spins several seconds longer (without pinion on motor) than my TC3 ever did. So there's no hangup there. I dunno. Maybe he has it geared wrong or his is just not as free as mine. But acceleration hasn't been a problem for me unless if I geared it as such. Hmmm, is his drive train shimmed as well? Take some slop out of the main shaft vs diff gears to help as well. If his is bone stock with no shimming... it might be the cause of this. I dunno.

Not sure. It was just really slow.


Glad to hear the Yok had some rip

Hi Guys,

I ran a couple of packs last sunday, and used Mo set-up.

Electronic - Tires - Motor mounted : GT7 and Corally PureGold 12x3 - final ratio 6.51 - Tires Corally Take off A Yokomo inserts 37M
The car is very consistent, easy to drive even with the front one-way and I am not fan of front one way... Excellent steering

The SD accelerates strongly compared to my MR4TC SP SSG, I didn't notice any torque steering, this chassis is really neutral.

I ran only 4 packs but they were 100% Happiness.

I will run the SD again next Sunday and try several set-up

Racer,
You can use rear blue alu dogbone from the MR4TC - ref ZS010 RTB to replace original steel dogbones included in the SD kit.

Ralf, glad to hear the setup worked well for you. The weather looks good for the weekend here finally so I should be able to get some more testing in this weekend.

Hi Mo,

Thanks for the set-up,

I tried also to put Green in front with Pink springs in the rear but that was really not successful, the back started to slip.

This week-end, I would like to try 2 toe-in at the rear, have you tried that ?

Yes, I have been running the 2deg rear toe. I still have plenty of grip.

Ralf,

Thanks for this information. This is exactly the type of comparative analysis I have been looking for - I also have an SSG and am looking to get an SD in a few months.

Please keep the information flowing. I would like to read more about your testing and results.

Cheers,
Stu

Matt, Mo,

Do you think it is possible to get 12 turn Team Luna motors as we have in France motor limit.

-Kit set up- Man, 3 degrees rear toe sounds like an awful lot of toe, wouldn't that cause the car to push in the corners? 2 degrees sounds more reasonable. 2 degrees should be more than enough unless you just have way too much oversteer.

But....once I get the car, I will try the kit set up first and see how it works.


RBlove: having that "Rip" is only important if the car can put it down. Between the shaft drive and the high 2.75 internal ratio, the STR-4pro I owned had crazy amounts of excelleration. Problem was, it would often spin the tires from a dead stop. Even with foams on carpet!

But, as long as the car can get the power to the ground, the the "Rip" is definitely something thats good to have.

Sorry is this is a stupid question, but I cant figure out wichever the SD got dog bones or CVD's?

I would also like to know where the transponder is supposed to be placed? (Pictures preferable)

Do the car require micro RX and ESC? I do have an micro RX, but I'm not interested in getting a new ESC....

Cole Trickle,

The SD has CVD, when I say blue alu dogbone, I refer to the bone only.

Regarding the electronics, it is preferable to use tiny equipment.
I use an XXL receiver with GT7 ESC, this esc is pretty big with the power capacitor that is the reason why I have put the XXL on the top deck and the GT7 on the chassis.

I am sure that using a quantum esc and small Futaba or KO receiver, you will be able to put everything on the main chassis.

For the transponder, there are no special room on the chassis, I noticed a hole on the front shocktower, you can use Yokomo transponder holder there ref ZS TPH, it will not be very esthetic but the transponder will be held...
Another solution consists in having a very long body clip and put the transponder between the 2 front body posts.
I'd rather use this solution.

Or simply put the transponder on the body,

I will get a digital camera in a few times and will post the pictures very soon.
