Pick up a wide front bumper and you won't need to carry many spares Other than that just the regular parts like arms, hub carriers, steering blocks. The CGM is as strong as any other car and better than most with the wide front bumper kit.

Hi Guys,

by about midnight tonight, we should have the pre-order setup for the MR-4TCSD Worlds edition. We have gathered all the specs and the approx. street price from Yokomo USA. Please keep in mind that this kit is in limited production and our pre-order will be important feedback to Yokomo USA as to just how many car kits they should bring in.

I will post on here once it is setup

Steve Wang

The stock springs are fine buy you'll want to pick up some others to be able to tune to your track. Usually for outdoor running I use Greens, Yellows, or pinks. Pink or green fronts and yellow rears usually work good on outdoor surfaces.

Er... I know I'm repeating myself, but, sorry, can't help it after having been flamed so bad a few weeks ago: but.... have you guys noticed there's two servo savers on the SDW-555?






Anyways... was thinking about switching brands when the FT-TC4 would be released... well, considering the stock of parts I have for the yoke and that look like they could fit on this car, I might change my mind

These blue/green aluminium dogbones look like Tobee's...

...they look like to be changed

I didn't have so much luck with the SD, so I'm not so sure to take this one, I'm very afraid of chassis tweak...hope this one has less...

I can't see the logic behind leaving the gear cases open either. I can see the advantages of having precision alloy gear boxes to ensure near perfect allignment - but why the open design?

Tarmac = stones

Carpet = fluff

IMO, gearboxes/pullies need to be sealed up. But especially on shaft driven cars - allignment is pointless if your gears are chewed.

The rest of the car looks very nice, but I'm perfectly happy with my RS SD. The predicted price looks to be very high, so I reckon that I'll just enjoy looking at those pictures!

Lonestar and Utieh : these are YMP universals (not Studio Universal ), they are all made out of aluminium apart from the cross joint, the dogbone is much thicker than any other alloy dogbone you have seen, so they don't bend or twist on the front (well they are not supposed to).

Anyway, I agree with you, they look cool but I'd change them if I was to get the car (which will not happen).

Its 2.5mm all round and I think its full CF, Alum, Ti and Graphite in the various places. Its supposed to be the exact copy fo Masami's car to the very last piece.

Now here comes that little voice in my head,,,,,,HEY STUPID YOU CAN HARDLY DRIVE WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE IT TO A SPORTSMAN A MAIN< WHAT IN GOD'S GREEN EARTH ARE YOU THINKING OF BUYING THIS PRO READY CAR>
1) YOU HAVE A HARD ENOUGH TIME DRIVING WHAT YOU ALREADY OWN.
2) WHAT MAKES YOU THINK A PRO CAR IS GOING TO MAKE YOU A BETTER DRIVER.
3) YOU STILL WILL HAVE TO PUT IT TOGETHER AND YOU KNOW YOU ARE NO PRO< SO SET-UP WILL STILL BE A MESS AT BEST>

OK Little Voice now go away...LOL @ SELF
I think I will have to pass on this one guys. It is way out of my leauge. I would get one pebble in the drive train and watch bits of drive train flying across the track....

MAN I HATE IT WHEN THE LITTLE VOICE MAKES SENSE.
Take Care All & GOD Bless

shooky... repeat after me...

gotta... have... it... no... matter... what



Seriously... those open gearcases really puzzle me... Matt said they were like that to lower the CG... which makes sense, but is it worth it? Maybe the "inexpensive" production car will feature more traditional (and user friendly) sealed cases.

Time will tell... in the meantime:

GO MASAMI!!!

btw... this has nothing to do with the Worlds, but I figured out that was where I was supposed to post it... after all, this is not a "worlds" thread, is it? (note: not a "for sale" trade either, ahem)

I have a set of Suzuki front knuckles for the SD for sale. They're in perfect shape, but the usual "fleeing CVD pin" traces inside. 30 dollars/25 euros and they're yours, shipped. PM me. As you know, production has been stopped, and they're HARD to come by.

Later,
Paul
