I believe Yokomo is working on beefing up the arms and possible the caster blocks.

Hey Mo, good to meet you finally over the weekend at Speedworld. Thanks for emailing me the setup last week, it worked great. I am thinking that somebody deffinetly needs to make some alluminum castor blocks and steering spindles! I fealt bad for James N., I think i bought the last one in the shop and he ended up using his tc3.

Could you point me to where I could get the teflon sealed bearings?

Thanks. Yeah, the pop ups and the banner at the bottom all come with a free website. You have to pay to get rid of those things.

Thanks THeGame. The car felt good. But I'm wondering how it will fair with the setup in warmer weather. We'll see this weekend.

As for the car being weak. I haven't found the CHubs or rear Hubs weak. Only the axles and bones. Arms are bound to break. So I dunno. Beefier arms might be okay. But we'll see.

Arms didn't seem the problem. The Carriers and Spindle were definitely the only problem area. It was nice to see all the silver chassis around the track.

I have a question on the servo mount. The second hole on the chassis is not countersunk for the mount, and the screw does not sit flush with the chassis there. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a fix I am not thinking of? I will post pics in a little while.

I took a dremel to the slot very slightly to take off the sharp edges and now my screw sits flat there

Hi Mo,
Where did Matt get his solid front spool from? Did he make it himself or what? Thanks.
