Ok. Now that you mention it, I can see that they are from the sway bar kit. I do remember that my first Yokomo car YR-4MII had that type of open link, only I believe that the openings were larger, though. Or not!

BTW, the photo are of Chris Grainger's car (taken from the CML Distribution web site) http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/art...id=69&type=CAR

ZC-207A is the part #. I believe you only get two in a package but they're only $1 per package.

No problem with the help, it keeps me busy over hear. There's not a whole lot to do other than drink and act like an idiot.

The YR-4 cars did use a bigger open ended ball cup and heavy steel ball ends.

I was active Navy for almost 6 yrs. Seen the whole world (or all that I wanted to see) in 4 years, now that is time well spent.

Hope you can get back to the US. Maybe if your lucky maybe Southern California. Stay far from Edwards unless you like desert and long drives to events. I live in Lancaster just south of Edwards. It takes 1&1/2 to two hours to So.Cal's about 45 mins to HotRods which is starting up Sedan racing next weekend. Jimmy Babcock bought HotRods and will host a Sedan series starting in April. So keep all that when looking at your next duty station.
Take Care & Hope Korea has treated you well.

Okay I just purchased a new CGM, I running on a concrete, that has unbelieveable traction. The traction is almost like running on carpet just not as consistant. DO anyone have a good setup?

The Stock set up works pretty well. Just stand up the shock in front, maybe a thicker swaybar in front and trythe r+3 suspension mount at the back. And RS yellow or white all over.

WHat springs are compareable to those. I have the green, pink, orange! I forgot to mention that with the stock set up it would traction roll in every corner.

with the springs you have I would run orange in the front and green in the rear. Have you tried running harder tires and inserts to stop the traction rolling? Are you running the same tires as everyone else?

Who all makes them? Are each manufacturers diff balls different sized? I bought everything to make a couple of extra diffs except the balls.

the yokomo diff balls are 3/32 and the thrust balls are 1/16. The diff balls are the same ones used in a losi or AE offroad diff. I'm not sure on the thrust balls since it's been awhile since I've built a diff from AE or Losi. You can use AE, Losi, or yokomo carbide diff balls and it will make your diff last alot longer between rebuilds, and even then you only need to replace or sand your rings.
