are the yokomo precision rims prone to cracking without big impacts?

it would suck big time if the rims crack with 3 runs on the new tires

Yokomo has a new prototype carbon centre shaft for the SD.. Unfortunately i forgot to get some pictures of it.. I believe it is a bit thicker than the current one they have, only had a quick look at it though..

Since most of the Yokomo drivers here in Japan use the Team bomber shaft, Yokomo decided to develop a new one to compete with it.

The guy that is testing the shaft, also had a different lightweight chassis, not sure if they are going to be producing it or not.. Wasn't too much diffferent from the current lightweight chassis, just professionally milled in a few areas..

The Yokomo graphite shaft will not stand 10 turns for long. We've tried. I don't know about the new one.

I have found 2 types of wheels that don't crack - Orion JB and Pro Line.

Regards

Default Drive shaft cups

I seem to be going through a number of the plastic main drive shaft cups (Part number SD-501). On the last one i tried heat shrink but no luck. I dont have big crashes just stock racing stuff. Is there a way to make the plastic parts stronger or should i just buy the Aluminium Team Suzuki parts if i can find them. Is there any other companies that make these parts in Ti or Aluminium.

Is it the rear Drive cup that breaks the most? Try and insert one O-Ring in both cups, standard is 1 in the rear cup i think.
I had the same problem in 12t before i put a O-ring in the front also.
Remember, if you put Suzuki Alu. cups you probably will break diff gears instead, and it takes longer time to replace them instead og the cups.
You have to see the positive in the negative
I hope you get rid of the problem!

You must have another problem, never broke a gear on that car, never knew of anyone breaking them aswell. Make sure your spacers are in the right place (3 behind the central bevel gear, two on the left side of the one way diff).

Hi alch,

Any idea if the new shaft uses a woven carbon tube? I would imagine that would make it stronger.

Cheers

Not too sure, i only had a quick look at it.. Was going to take some pictures and have a closer look, but i was too busy racing.

Going on holidays for a few weeks at the end of the week too, so won't be visiting the track for about a month.. I will update when i get back.
