In that case, remove weight from the heavy side to balance the chassis.

If your going to race in big races, go ahead and weigh the car down to 1500 grams.

Is your car the SDW? Rayspeed? or Stock SD? Mine came out to be 1630 with GT7, 3600's, rubber tires, and MG servo.

I think a digital plastic gear servo would help. I've already reduced the weight down to 1560 grams.

1395 grams?

My CGM needed approx 70 grams added to it so I put 90 in the Rayspeed.

But if your car is 1395 with that gear and mine is similar in weight, but the batteries are only 1500mah packs, I'm going to have to add like 120-130 grams in total.

Yokomo Dominates At Yatabe
19-04-2005 19:22:00 GMT +1 - Send this to a friend


Team Yokomo dominates the 2005 Super Stock Championships at Yatabe Arena.

Masami Hirosaka TQs and wins the 2005 Super Stock (23T) Championship with the MR-4TC SDW.

Yokomo drivers finishing in the top 10.
1. Masami Hirosaka (SDW)
2. Takashi Katoh (BD)
3. Shinnosuke Adachi (BD)
5. Shinya Kimura (SDW)
6. Ichiro Fukuda (SDW)
9. Naoto Matsukura (SDW)

All those guys who went out and bought a BD, and the SDW still beats it.

Yeah, and if Masami had run the old MR4-TC Silver or special he would have won it too.

shim out the side to side play first with no input gear. then shim the dif/1way over with the input gear installed(stock shims). you should have a tiny bit of rocking between the gears. install the cover and test the free spin. the cover sometimes binds the gears so you may need to move some shims around but most of the time its right on

zc-s100s shim kit will let you realy fine tune the mesh with different thicknesses

Default Yokomo Set-up Order

I recently bought a Hudy set-up system and this is the order that they recommend: downstops (which I think most people refer to as droop, but I could be wrong), ride height, droop, camber, caster, toe, steering throw, tweak.

I've been having a lot of fun with the set-up system and highly recommend it. It's been a big help in setting my car up. Now I just have to learn to drive it!

JayBee - I think you helped answer a question I had through one of your previous posts. I bought some Rayspeed springs based on a guy at SoCal saying they were "must haves." My ride height ended up 7.5 mm and I couldn't get it down, even shortening the shocks to the stock 60 mm. I didn't realize that not having the Rayspeed cups messed everything up. Thanks for posting that tip!

PS - There was no significant change in ride height shortening the shocks from 62 mm to 60 mm, nor in playing with the shock collars. This surprised me.
