Default question

i had my steering setup up a different way than the stock location. it was parallel to the front drive shafts, i'm gonna switch it back to the stoxk way though, but was wondering, is it gonna make a big difference, for a beginning carpet driver.

92tsi,
Is this on the CGM?

Blakesrc,

The upper sway bar does not come with the SDW it was from the old belt drive TC i believe.

Thanks
The upper sway-bar works very well on the rear of the SD, get the Rayspeed lower sway-bar for the front of the SD. It fits better than the Yoke lower sway-bar and seems to work better too.

Looks about the same with the exception of the shock weight (60 losi), and lower shock mounts ( one hole in on the front and rear), orange spring on the front, and green on the rear, and I also have kick up on the front.

All it is you can get rid of slop in the steering and it is slightly more direct.

Anyone have tried the new Rayspeed shock towers RS-30 & RS-31?
And is any of you already experience the T6 motors too?

Pops, Matt or anybody that knows,
Ive been informed recently that the sd has a king pin problem, (king pin poping out) , has yokomo resolved this issue yet? If not what fixes are currently available?
thanks

Johnny

It can be a problem, but I think the best fix is the lightweight king pins. These king pins will go straight into the hubs better, which also keeps them from backing off. You can also use a little lock tight if you want. Best thing is not to over tighten the pins, no matter which ones you use, as it can be easy to strip the threads in the steering hubs.
Be sure to check them before each run.

That's because the SDW uses the RS swaybars

SO TRUE; and I repeat- DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! Right when you feel it snug-up, STOP TIGHTENING One of my pet-peeves is stripping threads on my cars.
