How can you be so sure? Of course the tolerance will be a LITTLE off, but yeah. When you run the car for a while take out the bearing and check the hole, if there is wear around it, then its off a bit.

Default How about if I said....

the hole in and of itself is straight but not drilled perpendicular to the motor plate so the shaft does not run in line.

I see what your saying, but exactly how much? Enough to effect drivetrain drag?

Unkown under power but the rear gear box with spur attached spins freely until the shaft is put through the mount when it then loses all hand spin (if that makes sense).

I removed my Tobbee input shaft for the same reason.

No just the standard one.

Just checked the other motor mount (I got two kits) and it's the bloody same too.

That sounds weird. I wouldn't think two kits would have that same problem - any pictures you could show us?

Sorry I don't think the digital camera could get that close or if it would even show up if it could (with nothing to compare it side by side with).

Trust me they both have holes that are about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mm out of line. By that I mean the hole is at such an angle that the bottom of the bearing sticks out that much further than the top from the face of the motor mount due to the angle the hole was drilled at.

Well, I guess you will just have to take them to the guy you bought them from and show him the problem and if he agrees ask for new motor mounts. And if that doesnt solve it ask yokomo whats going on.

That would be cool if he really is using the SSG.

Maybe its your camber link, when you turn, that side of the suspension compresses and pushes the top of the wheel outward? Just a thought.

Try running less camber in the front or a thicker insert

Matt.

Have you found out yet what chassis Billy E is running. He seems to be on the pace.

Who else in the top 20 is running Yokes ?

Did a couple of runs with mine today with a 9 turn single. It's quick and gives the duration. With a very second hand set of tyres it was still on the pace. I really do like this car. Tweek is just a thing of the past. You just put it on the track and it's always right.

Still waiting for some more results from Oregon before hitting the sack. It's half past midnight out here.
