Default Yok CGM

I have a CGM and I need a place to buy spares and upgrades online. My LHS doesn't carry parts for YOK's. Who has the best selection and prices? Thanks in advance, 'blade

Speedtechrc, rc-mushroom, precisionrc..... There's a few more.....

What front/rear springs are you guys running with the CGM on carpet???? Curious if I'm close or way off from the rest.... I had a good setup, needed a little more steering.... Trying to knock a second off my laps... Easier said than done....

Sounds about right, might be a little soft in the rear for my taste, but I don't know anything about your track. How does it run? If it runs fine then leave it alone.

I regularly run Pink in front and yellow in rear with Sorex 28 on carpet. When the grip is on the very high side, i use pinks in rear too.

blade, Fantasy world in tacoma stocks parts for the yok. they don't have any rayspeed parts, but do carry the normal breakage parts, arms, uprights etc. besides, being new to the area you need to get out and explore anyway. check the northwest forum for the FW thread to get web page with address and directions. also pictures of the coolest drivers stand in the state.

what's the avrage weight you ususlly add to the opposite the battery to get the car ballanced?

Anyway, I leave what I posted earlier, it might be helpful for smoe people...

hi... just to clarify, im using the CGM and the manual says to use the upper hole of the front C-hub and the lower hole of the rear uprights... or did i get it wrong?


anyway, i tried using both upper holes on the front and rear, but i have difficulty getting the droop i want with the proper ride height.


any comments would be gladly appreciated. thanks - jason
