  • Any word about the new SDW upgrade conversion for the SD?????
    I heard right behind the BD so I just thought Maybe someone might have heard something....HINT HINT Matt or Steve...????
    Also if I can not wield the new BD as well as my SD I might just convert the SD to the SDW and run the BD for the Mod and 19T classes. Right now I wield the SD pretty well in Stock. SO I will have to at least try the conversion.
    Thanks,

    And they say Yokomo doesn't come up with their own Ideas...
    It looks like the first ever one way shaft ever. Guess they do have their own ideas. I bet I will have one in my SD when it comes out. That would definantly help my steering...Sheesh I bet Tamiya and HPI are going to rush to get one out ASAP...

  • while it probably will have a little "slider" action, it actually is a shaft one way.

    actually the oneway shaft is not a new idea, its been done...

    cant remember exactly but i think its irragang? / friend of mine ran one at the 04 nats...
  • What benefits could be reaped from a one-way shaft? I've seen the one made for the TC3, but then, I never picked one up because I did not know what it would do for a car. Please, any one who has used one please post up.

    driveline/train oneway;
    -deceleration of front universals / drivetrain and drag issue; with the rear diff/universals. rear diff/drivetrain has less drag and the front decelerate seperatly from the drivetrain and univerals.


    do the math! (my new saying), b-main = motocross start!!!
  • Got it!!!

    And I'll Do the Math!!!

    I used a shaft 1-way on my first TB Evolution back in 2001. It looked similar to this new Yokomo one and was made by Cross Racing. I wasn't really sure if it did anything because most shaft cars already have free drivetrains. I still have the one-way... and I'm sure it'll fit the other TB cars up to III. Hmmm... time to experiment... If it works... I'll probably end up getting them for my Yokomos.
  • i thought the oneway shafts that are already out were actualy oneway front input shafts? but actually the main shafts?

  • sorry i wrote that wrong, i ment i no the yoke one is a centre shaft but i thought that the ones already out frm differnent makes were actualy inout shafts and not main shafts.!!!!
  • I think the main idea is to combine the front spool with this center oneway to have better cornering speed.
  • Doesnt that defeat the purpose? I thought the main point of the spool was the ability to break.
