I used to take-out tweak the way Pops described. But I find it hard to do when the car starts to develop slop in the suspension.

The MIP tweak station works, but you have to make sure that the kit is balanced on the four wheels before putting it on the tweak station otherwise the MIP will give you uneven ride heights.

How do you make sure that the kit is balanced on the four wheels before putting it on the tweak station?

Bottom line is that I found that you can still ballance the bubble in the tweak station and the car can still be tweaked. The bubble will be ballanced but at least one of the shocks will all be compressed differently to get it ballanced, screwing up the ride height. As long as the car is not very tweaked, the tweak station works really well.

What's up Brah... it's all good. I know but it seems folks are a bit strapped for cash (understandably).
I did like the RDX better until I spent more time with the BD. It's pretty dailed now. What can I say... Imma Yoke boy. The HPI Cyclone hasn't hit the states yet though Yokomo came correct on the BD I might say -JB

Default not trying to barge in...

Not trying to totally barge in here, but I figured that someone here could help find a good home for one of my Yok's...

Looking to sell (or trade) a sharp SD SSG Special. See here:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=80396

No, I'm not jumping off the YokWagon, I'm still keeping my Worlds and a BD.

thanks-
TC_Tuner

I was wondering what you guys run for arms -- 0 degree or 1 degree offset. I recently changed to 0 degree based on a recommendation, but I'm not sure I like it. The car seems a little more twitchy. This, however, is likely just due to me.

Please let me know what you run and why (I run the SD and the SDW).
