Thanks,

My usual choice is yoke green on front and either yellow or blue on the back (yellow if i want more steering, blue if i want a more stable car). In the yoke spring chart, the green are about the hardest (only orange are harder), I find them to be fine with my setup.

Now I know I am about ot get flamed but I have taken a long hard look at the New SDW and found that it almost the same as the rayspeed upgrade minus the diff cases. I know that the chassis is different but Look at the picture closely they are using the rayspeed motor mount and the shock towers look nearly the same as well. I think I will just stick with the rayspeed SD I have already. I mean I am far from being a World Class Driver but I just wanted to offer up some other options since the SDW is going to have only 555 available and getting sparess for the SDW has to be a nightmare. Just my observations. If you want to flame me go ahead but realy take a close look at the pictures, espeically on Yokomo's site in the forum section, you get a bunch of close up pictures. Just seems a little funny that it has alot of the rayspeed looks. BUT YEA IF YOU WANT ONE GET ONE>>>>GOD BLESS THE GLUTTONOUS USA. Yes I love my country but we are a Gluttonous nation. Hope I didn't offend anyone.
Thanks for listening to my rambles,
Stephen <><

But most spares will be the same as a regular SD, it onlt seems to be the gearbox's and the motor mount that are massivly different. Rick

Cool Down Shooky!

The SDW have some things may be most people didnt notice, look the the front Susp mount close up phtos provide by JP's Photo, you will notice that it has a new wider front blue susp mount c/w shorter arm. Just dont make any unnecessary comments like a spoil brat. No one is pointing a gun at your head to get your father the buy you the SDW!

Peace and Stay Cool!

Yea and my DAD is almost 70 he doesn't buy me anything. Check my post. I am not bashing, just making observations. If you took offence I already appoligized in my original post. Oh the reason the new wider front blue suspention mount is because of the new diff cases that are wider. JEES dude relax. I love Yokomo but think it was a little bit nasty for them to only release 555 of these little hopped-up jems. I think when the new Rayspeed chassis hits It will probably solve most of minor problems it ever had. AGAIN THESE ARE MY OBSERVATIONS AND IF YOU DISAGREE I DON'T CARE. That is what is great about opinions(everyone has one and no one has to agree for it to be right) SO I will leave you with a kind word... JESUS LOVES YOU.
Take Care all & GOD Bless

Sorry but your wrong, the front block is wider as the wishbones are shorter. The diff cases seem to be around the same width as the diff is still the same width, obviously no one will be able to say for sure but this is how i have interperated the pics. Rick

you're probably right. i heard that masamis car was a little bit loose in the rear, and they speculated that this was to overcome the spool as well.
