I can't find that link for the life of me.... I figure the Lunsford 1 3/4" titanium should be perfect...

When you use Associated shock retainers, what shock ends do i have to use?
Spent $$ on them and found out they don't fit the Yokomo shock ends???

use ball cups for the shock ends and install a ball stud on the arm where you want to mount them.

Hi Guys,

In case you guys haven't checked it out, there is a picture on the team orion IFMAR coverage of the updated MR-4TCSD that Billy Easton and Masami is running at the Worlds. It is a limited edition (555 kits made) and I believe it should be available soon after the worlds.

I will try and get confirmation with Yokomo USA tomorrow, and if I can get more info out of it, I will. And of course a pre-order will begin on our website as soon as I have enough information to set it up

I built the steering up similar to Masami's and Chris' right when I built my CGM, months ago. It just looked like a much more sensible way to do it.

I use rose joints rather than ballcup joints everywhere. They are much more reliable, and if you put them on the right way, there is no way they will come out.

I see Masami has done the business in 1/12th. Let's hope he can do it with the touring car too.

Hey All,

Slop-free steering: I've gotten very close to that these days. I use Tamiya 4.8mm balls (blue Aluminium) and ballcups, on the recommendation of Cobra, and I have to say they're pretty nice... Add the almighty chunk of plastic sheet (from an old bag of parts for instance) in between the cup and the ball, et voila, it's nice and free, with almost no slop and absolutely no binding. Using double-servo savers also helps because the bearings are further apart. I've only broken ONE balljoint so far, but it could also have happened with steel ones.

Go Masami, and show all the folks who abandoned the yoke that they were wrong!

Later,
Paul

Lee, whose car is that? Not Masami's (because of the QC2)...

Later,

Well, he could be trying stuff, I guess... I think he usually runs GM speedos (at least since the last worlds, when he actually switched brands during the race if I remember well).

btw, hail to the KING, the guy who will lap you at your hometrack, driving with his feet
