Surprise, Adachi is not running Rayspeed chassis, looks like a SDW with silver top deck and different shock towers. Unusually rear camber links set up!

if anything i would say yokomo might make a conversion kit for the ssg or cgm to turn into a worlds car, or they could just change a few things and it wouldn't be a worlds kits, i.e. standard screws, input shafts,and cvd's all the things that raise the price of the sdw.

05- check that you shims aren't bent and do the shimming correctly. you will also need some lube.
My first SD made some wicked sounds but after I notices bent shims and gear binding, I reshimmed it and its been quiet from then on.

The Roll bars are color coded, you have to measure them with calipers to determin the thickness.
Copper 1.5mm
Brass 1.2mm
Silver 1.1mm
Black 0.9mm

The RAYSPEED lightweight input cups are as light as the plastic ones and I have not noticed any play. EDITED(its Team SUZUKI not raySpeed, sorry)

Got my TS lightweight rear hubs!!! I think there will be too much toe in in the rear and will wear my tires fast, but the track we will be playing this sunday is a bit dusty. with the 3+0 rear holder, I'm getting 3.5 degrees of toe in right?

If you are running the hollow graphite shaft, it is really loose in the lightweight Suzuki cups.

thanks (sway bar suggestion initiated lol ).

It is basically at the stage I wanted to get it to, in that it is now up to me to put it where it needs to go and if I can't get it around the track it's my fault rather than anything I can pin on the car itself.

Hope that makes sense?

The hooking is also (as best as I can tell if it happens) now my fault just for trying things to fast rather than the car setup as such. Double thanks.

The only thing that concerns me now is that seeing as I have the two diffs instead of a one-way I notice I have to enter the hairpin turns as pictured in the second black and white picture in this link.....

http://www.tckc.net/tips_faqs/drivin...techniques.htm

in that if I brake just before I turn I can get around as pictured (although the exit is a little tighter than that) which is all well and good if it's just me lol.

But any suggestions as to how I might be able to make the entry (to this type of turn) a little tighter so I don't get one-way equipped cars coming up on the inside would be appreciated.

About the only adjustments I can think of that I haven't tried (now that the anti-roll is the stiffest I've got) is to swap the green to the front and the pink to the rear or go from 2 to 3 degree toe angle on the rear?

Bluey,

I am using the Yokomo stratus E which i believe is the same as the ride mkII and its great. The mkIII is suppose to have more steering and the mkI i believe is for larger flowing tracks.

Just asking, did you guys place the small O-ring inside the Suzuki LtWt Cups??? (Its TS not RS my mistake)

I'm also using the Hollow Carbon shaft and its not loose at all
