This is part Yokomo, part ebay....

Some guy has parts on ebay for the Yok... 5 sets of 4134H's and a set of king pins (no use to me).... His shipping is 8$... Figure Speedtech has the hubs for $5 and maybe $5 for shipping... Some moron is doing a bidding war for these parts... Uhm... Why do you want to pay retail on ebay??? I figured $30 was my max with shipping and bid 22... Got outbid... Oh well...

Back to your regulary scheduled program...

PS, I hope he's not reading this....

any recommendation for a starting point with pistons/oil/springs for tight tracks (CS27 on carpet)? I tried 3 holes all around with 35/RS Grey front and 30/RS Red on rear and the pro4's were running circles around me this weekend in mod (ended up 7th...)... Do I need a stiffer setup?

Thanks,
Paul
Paul e-mail me at [email protected] and I will send you a very good set-up for rubber on carpet, like Matt said go lighter on the oil.

Jaybee,

The chassis is so much stiffer than the stock ssg i think they didnt really want to bother making a center stiffener. The holes are there though if you want to use your existing one, i am going to try it WITH the center stiffiner for my next few races and see if there is any change.

As far as tracks go, if you are staying in Glendora you will be less than an hour away from SO Cal Raceway in Huntington Beach. They have a super nice indoor track. Also, a little less than an hour away in Hesperia there is 4fun hobbies and raceway which is where the roar regionals were just held. Hesperia might be a little easier/less traffic to get to. That track is outdoor and really good size. I got a good setup for socal last time i was there and just got a good setup from Pops (thanks Russ) for Hesperia so if you are going to go to one of those tracks, email me and i will send them to you. I believe Socal races on Tuesday nights and Saturdays and Hesperia Races on Saturdays.

Price on the Atheena... The currency conversion comes out to like 140 bucks for the top plate and chassis BUT, the owner Bjorn is totally bummed about low sales for the chassis and I bet he will make you an awsome deal, i dont really know if i should say what he sold me mine for, sorry Send him an email, he really has a nice product and you wont be disapointed.

Jaybee, I just realized that you will also be close to Revelation Raceway in Ontario, 25 minutes away and there is also Crytal Park raceway in Compton about 40 minutes from you. I am not sure what kind of electric turnouts they get but both of them have threads in the racing forum and I am sure some people there can help ya out.

Dude...... I have questions: do you use the middle chassis stiffener ? Some argue the stiffener can cause tweak ? I don't understand how could it be, but I have nice idea to install it directly to the bottom of main chassis without the blue alluminum posts. I also double the upper deck.... cool man . Now the whole unit is very very stiff!

I give you picture later..... see ya

Yeah, I gotta find the address to that track; it's definitely worth checking out. If we had a track like that, but indoor for all year round racing.... O' BOY....

Matt,
thanks for the tip... I usually run RS yellows and whites, but the grip was too high (new carpet) and the car was beginning to traction roll... the tires were also generating a ton of grip and the car was leaning too far in tight turns (hence slowed down reaction times for my tastes) so I went stiffer... I'll try other things next time I guess. BAsically, even with reds and grays the car was still too slow in angle changes. for 17T whites/yellows or yellow/red were good, but in mod I didn't like it that much...

Pops,
email coming your way. Thanks!

asw7576,
The center stiffener doesn't really "cause" tweak but it's another part that helps "memorize" it on a hit (plates move sideways under load but don't come back by themselves). Most of us remove it from the car.

Later yall
Paul

A tip you can try to prevent traction rolling is run a bead of glue around the sidewall of your front tire. If the car starts to lean it will hit the glue and stop leaning. Also for swaybars I normally ran a gold up front and silver in the rear.

MAtt,

thanks for the info... to be honest, I rarely run the swaybars on anything else than 8th scale... The suspension travel distances look so tiny in 10th scale DTM that, with a tiny bit of slop in the links (like there always is), it looks like they're useless... you can usually lift an A-arm a good quarter inch before the other one starts moving... even with the thick ones. I tend not to use them, like most of us on carpet (with rubbers).... I guess I'll have to experiment a little more!

Thanks,
Paul

To be honest with you I don't think there is any time that I haven't run swaybars front and rear on my SD. Give the swaybars a try and I think you'll be happy.
