Angry

all of this bothers me...

if a part is well made, why do you have to do all of this? it kinda stinks that we have to alter parts that are already machined, i can see if they badly molded but we have plenty of molded parts on our cars that work quite well. WE'RE NOT ALL TC3/TC4 OWNERS ...

The Rayspeed CVD's are made by MIP, we were hoping MIP had fixed this problem so we wouldn't have to shave anything down. Hopefully these new version of the Ti racing CVD's will be as good as people are saying. I was one of the people to get a set from schumacher so I'll let everyone know how fit and if they have any wear problems.

Does anyone know if we will be getting graphite parts on the SDW? Just can't find any evidence of it, or any discussion on it.

Thanks.

Put a couple of spare spacers between the servo mount and the screws that hols it down. Should give you just what you are looking for. I had the same problem till I put those in. Since then nothing binds. Works like a champ.
Hope this helps,
Stephen <><

Thanks for the help JayBee and Shookie..

JayBee:
Sorry, i'm kinda confuse on what you modified. did you
just make one side of the turnbuclke longer than the other??
like this?
----====---- (before)
-------====-- (After)
so the turnbuckle will clear the servo?
hope you understand what i'm trying to say

Mr. Shookie:
what kind of spacer i should use?
those 1mm shim used for the spacing the wheel base?

i'll try them later tonite


thanks

~Ming

Had the same problem, just took a dremel and slightly sanded the edge where the turnbuckle rubbed the servo case, and that fixed it.

I just got off the phone with Yokomo USA and they said the car will have graphite parts with it. The arms are going to be the new HD type, with new shorter ones in the front. The car is still a week or so away from being released though. After some discusion they are still going to include the YMP aluminum universals because "that's how Masami ran it". I would suggest you replace them unless your running in the stock nationals, they break very easily.

Thanks for that. Yeah this car is for stock only, old SSG for mod. I have nationals in March so I think I'll put some other universals in the car until then for testing and other meetings.

Thanks again.

Snapped my first drive shaft yesterday at Hot Rods, Man I hit the wall at full throttle, and the battery came loose hit the shaft and can you say bye bye to a 22.00 grafite shaft........OUCH that is two big Breaks in less than one week. I need to take a break from breaking LOL. I just replaced a Rayspeed rear shock tower the day before.....SHEEEEEEEEESH enough all ready. Sorry Guys had to vent a little. Also should I go and get another grafite or should I risk the Tobee lightwieght?
Thanks,
