I can't bring my car (real one) so even if I did take all my r/c stuff I don't know how I'd get to any of the tracks. Looks like I'll be taking a year off. My last race will probably be the Reedy race.

You doing a hardship in Korea? That sucks... unless you actually want to go. (i'm sure there are other like minded souls there who can give you a ride to places)

I didn't exactly volunteer for the job, leaving the wife and my 4 year old daughter bites big time.

got my wide bumper yesterday. I ended up just using the plastic bottom piece with the stock foam bumper, had to snip just the edges off of it to fit under my body. The new foam piece is a little bigger as well, meaning you will have to trim it slightly to get it to fit under your body. I'll trim mine when I get the time but the whole setup looks like it will protect the front end alot better.

spool ?

when running a spool on the front... does it matter if the gear is on the right side or left side? or shoud it be installed like a regular diff gear per manual?

thanks

If i understand you right the front wheels will rotate backwards if the spool is mounted wrong, and that's VERY bad
Mount it in the car like a regular diff.

I thought Graphite mouldings would have been more fragile...

Also on that link are what look like alternative front kingpins, with a seperate sleeve and screw.

From what we've seen of Yokomo's plastic moudings for the SD so far, the Graphite parts have seemed more durable if anything. Would it be different for the gears?

That's great news. I picked up a set from Speedtech, but have not had a chance to put them in yet. I have had two or three kingpins work their way loose. Hopefully these new ones will solve the problem. It's great that Yokomo has addressed this issue.

Just installed the new spool from Speedtech for the SD. This is very well made and an excellent fit.
