Your Welcome, yes the Blue Alum Tamiya Shock Retainers are to small and will not fit the Yoke shock ends. But you can use that and use tamiya springs.

yes it caqn happen but you'd need to hit pretty hard... and probably have wrong shimming in there (too loose/free).

This happend to me once, after the Stupid Lamp post did not move out of the way!!

I was wondering to prevent this to happen again, its kinda expensive (bent a Ti Input Shafts, wreck the 1st gen. graphite shaft), would anybody consider placing an Upper Deck?

PRP, BMI or Penguin can make one?

Hello again to all Yokomo drivers!

He is another question from a new yokomo owner.

I'm looking for a setup to run rubber tires on a smooth asphalt track (traction alittle loose). The tires I would like to run are Take off c22's or c27's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Ive noticed there is quite a bit of flex with the CGM without the battery in or even with the battery in as the battery mount posts are non-adjustable and the battery sits somewhat loose. When i press the battery strap down, the chassis is as stiff as a brick. Ive ordered the Tobee adjustable post and hope this solves this issue.

Hey Lem, you could put an upper deck, when Chris Tossolini drove for yokomo, he had one put in. The pics are somewhere on this thread. Sorry, I could not help you further.

you could also put some foam under the battery brace. Like the ae/losi use to space there batteries on thier off road cars...
