I did the same mod as well...w/S9550
There is alot more room now for any size electronics...
I'll also be using the GT7 and Futaba HRS receiver.

I also like having my reciever mounted on its side. I have had glitching problems in the past with the XXtra when its been sitting flat.

for glitching problems...try using copper shielding tape on the bottom of the receiver. they can be found a larger electronics stores.


Do you guys think that the front dog bone is a little short...it's almost touching the blue diff retainer ring. compared to the rears..which are more recessed into the diff. ..

It seems like it really wouldn't matter. Theres still plenty of room between the retaining ring and the dog bones up front.

Oh, your worried about them coming out. Well considering how hard it is to get the bones at just the right angle so that you can remove the front diff completely.......I don't think they're going anywhere on their own!

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Sooner or later there will be graphite parts for the car. Square RC just released Ti axles, and f/r Ti input shafts. They will probably release an alum. bulkhead..as they did with the EVO-III, +more to come... Tobee craft released option parts as well... HD blue alum. dog bones, Blue alum. input shafts, and servo mounts. unfortunately they're only available in Japan. We'll see alot of option parts released in the next couple of months...

Dark... try taking out some Droop in the rear til you can get it setup right. That's what I had to do. Waiting on my RaySpeed springs to arrive later this week. But looks like rain all week long!! Hopefully it'll be over when the weekend hits. Have some more testing to do before the Regionals in 2!

Check to see if your front shocks are longer than ur front droop also use the longer shock end.

Hi Guys,

We might be getting some titanium screw kits for the MR-4TCSD later on this week. I'll keep you guys posted. The Yokomo MMS (Motor management system) and HMM (Hyper Motor Mate) are both in stock.

CSF0623,

you ready for SoCal tonight?

Steve Wang
