Check out www.cmldistribution.co.uk

There are plenty of set ups there. Alternatively the Yokomo USA site has plenty too.

They're on the yokomo japan website. They should be available in the states soon if they aren't already. They made them specific for the front only and for the rear only , they're not interchangeable like the first ones. Doing it this way they were able to beef up the arms to make them more durable.

Big props to Fukuyama's Curtis Schlaht. Now that I have got to know him a little, not only is Curtis fast, his Fukuyama motors and batts plain rocked. He does an awesome job of representing his sponsors. Cant wait to have him back to our track. He quickly became a big hit with all the racers at the Oklahoma Touring Car Champs this last weekend. Congrats to Fukuyama for having racers like Curtis tied to your company, and good luck on the motor venture, hope it works out well. Also congrats to Chris Tosolini, always a hit with the crowd, he and Curtis put on quite a driving show. As a track owner I would like to say thanks for making such great products and supporting drivers like these guys that help our hobby grow.

News Flash!!!

I just got hold of my first pair of 4134G graphite c hub/carriers!!!

I've been waiting for these items to arrive in the UK for the best part of 6 months. Now I finally have them

These new arms sound interesting. I remember a stuff being said about them a while ago - I think it was Matt Howard that mentioned them first.

I gather that some of us are saddened by the fact that the new front/rear arms are not interchangeable at opposite ends. If they work better and are stronger though, it seems like a fair trade off IMO.

BTW, does anyone know how randman is getting on?

Cheers

Horatio

Default SD with 26mm foams

Are 26mm foam tire/wheel sets compatible with the SD chassis? I'm a bit concerned about the width of a 26mm wheel, but I've never seen a narrower setup for foam tires.

I run 28 mm on my SD, just grind a little material off the arm and it will work fine. Also have cut the 28's down to 27 with stock arm, also was fine.
