Hey Matt how long are you in Korea for? Did you find any tracks resonably close by? They flew half way around the world, you must have been laying too much smack down on the guys so they shipped you out.

Glad you made it there safe and sound. I think that they shipped you out before I have my breakout race at the Losi race.....but you're gone so the race is a no go because no one wants to see me whip up on lil Alex.....LOL

also...what tire did you run when you went to Modesto with Mo? We are going there tomorrow for another night race.

i think the difference is that it isn't made by yok, its a different color and doesn't have the same cut outs.

Angry Jesussss Christ another Yokomo problem......

I'm really getting pissed off with this kit now.

Ok I've got to the stage of a rolling chassis (minus the wheels as I haven't glued them yet) anyway.....

See if you can picture this.....

When viewed from the rear the dogbone pins go so far into the drive cup and it is an equal amount on both sides.....BUT when you view the front dogbones (from the front) the one on the left doesn't go in as far as the one on the right.....

Causing the pin to hit the little blue ring thingy (or whatever it's called) thereby causing the A arm to lift every half rotation. . . surely this is not right?

Both dog bones measure to the same length so it's not that.


Any ideas as to why?

do you have the same probleme in the front?
perhaps you've mixed the driveshafts betwen front and rear...
anyway rebuild everything this problem is not really normal

I've forgotten this kit took so much time to build
