Well if you're running stock (540 for most users here) you wont need anything to beef up the car. My brother has run stock this whole year with his car and he hasn't broken anything as far as I can remeber, apart from a spur and a one-way gear. But if you hit stuff constantly, something will break. Aluminium knuckles are nice but not absolutely necessary. Just get maybe a pair of spare universals for the front, a spare spur gear, a pair of arms, a spare one-way gear set and you should be fine. And when buying spares get the graphite stuff, it seems to be quite a bit stronger.

If you are looking to upgrade your car, just put lightweight input shafts in and a shooters or bomber carbon shaft. This isn't needed to go fast though, my brothers car is absolutely stock apart from the shooters carbon shaft. And of course buy as much stuff here as you can, such as spares etc. Talk to Ivan next time you see him, he carries Yokomo parts and will have almost anything you need. And when you break something you don't have, he will usually be able to sell the part to you on the spot. Thats why you should buy as much as possible here. If you do buy your spares etc from him, he will help you a lot with any problems that you may have.

Trevor.

I would ask what type of racing you're going to be doing but I don't think it matters if you're just looking for a stiffer plate chassis. So I guess my answer would be yes, I like the Rayspeed conversion upgrade. Not only is it stiffer than the SSG SD, the double servo-saver takes out alot of the sloppiness in the steering dept.

The RS stuff is really good. I run their springs, pistons, shocktowers, and O rings. The aluminum bulkheads will not be available seperatly and even if they were they wouldn't fit on a regular SD, sorry.

i believe the alum bulk heads will only fit the worlds car, AND, they aren't going to make any extras

Tosolini Setup

Sorry to bring the above up again, but i am curious as to what lowering the rear suspension arm mounts actually does.
Does it increase roll?Therefore more grip?
Would you run more droop than normal due to the arms being lower?(in regard to a gauge)

It will give the rear end more grip while also reducing the chance of a traction roll. With foam tires you'll want the the rear of the car to lift 3-4 mm before the tires come up, it's a pain in the butt to use a droop gauge with foam tires since they are continuosly changing diameter.

Do yokomo do the ball cups that arnt really cups more like hoops as a set. They look a tighter fit than the standard ball cups. And for the rollbars are the blue collars avaliable and aluminium shock mounting balls.
