The front arms are shorter but the suspension mounts are wider to keep the car at a regular width. This gives the car more steering.

Wouldn't recommend,
Had a month of problems with it. Leave the ratio alone it was R&D'd to death. You won't find it worth the trouble or investment. It messes with all kinds of factors.
Hope this helps,

The main problems were that it was'nt very consistent. The CGM is much better in that way.

btw, i'll probably go to the dark-side since my sponsoring hobby shop is going for Tamiya 415. Great in one way cuz Tamiya has'nt been really distributed in Sweden, just by a plastic model company who has it for about $1000, we'll see if hpw that goes..

Hi
The new shorter front arms for the SDW will we be able to buy spare ones when we get the kits?

Merry Xmas

Sorry it didn't work out for you with the car... I'm going to see what the CGM is like on asphalt when I pick one up in February

Yoke shirt wearers: Drescher, Masami, Baker, Hodapp and Orr I think - not sure about the last 2 names. That's half the top 10.

We all know the car's good. What they need is a couple of real high calibre drivers. I'm sure they must see the potential of the US market.
Hodapp and Orr were not Yokomo, Hodapp was Losi, and Orr was AE and GM, I only know this because I went into a thrift shop and looked at the magazines and found a RC Car Action for 25 cents, so I picked it up and bought it, and it has loads of info.

Johnbull, I still haven't gotten picks of your cars, I wanted to see them, you always do something different, my email is [email protected] thanks

Another thing with the Rear Toe Blocks and Rear 1 or .5 hubs is that you can reverse them to get even less rear toe. Like a 2degree rear block with the 1degree rear hubs reversed to get 1degree rear toe. Same with the .5 rear hubs... reverse them to get 1.5 rear toe. Just another tuning option. I often run a 2 block with 1 hubs reversed for stock and/or 19t.

Stupid question Kilruf and pardon the simple mind- how do you reverse the 'toe blocks' with the 'rear hubs'?
