that's the MR4TC Special, it was the car before the SD. Not a bad car but alittle outdated now. $85 isn't a bad price but you might have problems locating parts for it now, Yokomo USA probably still carries parts for it but I doubt any hobby shops do.

it is a nice car but it's old. If you can find parts for it and its still in good condition, you can get good performance out of it.

Sonic,

It is an older mr4tc, i believe that model was used up until april of 2003 when the new shaft drive yokomo sd was released. It was a good car in its time but possibly hard to find parts for now.

Sonic,

I am sure that car is fine for what you are planning on using it for, my only concern would be finding parts if something on the car breaks. If your limit is 400 you might want to look at something a bit newer for that reason. I think i saw a yokomo ssg sd on the for sale thread just yesterday for a super low price, like 135.00 fyi.

used mine for several months in 19t and mod on pavement, as far as the tobee rear only cvds, if you mean just the dog bone part of the cvd i didn't know they were rear only and have ran them up front also. but with a spool or one way and tapping a pipe they snap real easy, with a diff i haven't broke one yet.

I only run them in the rear because I didn't want to break any by running them in the front

Hey Matt
With the wide front bumper, is it okay to shave off some of the ends to make it fit certain bodies (Alfa 156 in particular)...

Universal Bone at the front.

Aoizip,

A couple pages back some of the guys were talking about them binding up, the MIP units did the same thing when you would tighten down the wheel nuts. If you scroll through the last few pages i think Kilruf posted a pic of the instructions included with the Rayspeed CVD's and they say something about sanding the backside of the wheel hex to help keep them from binding.

Good Luck,

Blake

i followed the directions and filed the back of my hexs down, and the original mip's i have for the belt drive tc no longer bind up in the shaft car. soooo i'm guessing by following the instructions with the rayspeed cvd's they should be ok. but note, i had to file until the pin hole started to open up so i can see where with a extra tight fitting wheel you might pull the hex off with the wheel.
