Question for the Yokomo drivers.

Where does the susp. mount height spacers go?

I'm still learning on this car (MR-4TC SD SSG).

Thanks!

P.S. Does anybody know of a good setup using rubber tires on a smooth surface asphalt?

I just recently obtained a white gear set, it came with my spool, looks like my tc3 gears. Its funny how yokomo went to the black gears, and AE went from black to white.

Under the suspension mounts. One spacer under each corner of the mounts (4).

At first there was the white gears, then black, which I believe were of the same material only the color was different. Then the graphite gears which last much longer than the plastic gears.

OK guys, just got the Tamiya shocks, is there anything I should do when I build them to get any amount of droop I want?

Default Ceramic or precision

Quick question for SDW owners.
Im picking mine up this week, and im thinking of gong with Ceramic bearing instead of the "precision: bearings from yokomo.
For those who have built the SDW, what do you think.
Is it worth staying wih the precision, or going ceramic.

Bluey,

The Ceramics are going to be better in the long run but man I am very impressed with the precions in my sdw, they are very free, much more so than the bearings that came with my original sd. Just de grease them and lightly oil them and when they eventually wear out, go for the ceramics, that is my plan.

This weekend I ran Yokomo gas car springs on my CGM, Brown's in front and Grey's in the rear. 60 wt oil in front, 40 in rear with the double pink tires. Car ran really good for me not racing in 8 months.
