tight enough so if you hold the spur gear and one wheel that it is very hard to impossible to turn the other wheel, if you ahve diffs fornt and rear then make sure the front is tighter or equal to the rear diff, but never the rear diff tighter than front.

Hi,

the SD-415G steering knuckles come with the kit. They are marked with a "1". And then there are the "Non trailing steering blocks" which are marked with a "0". I used the Team Suzuki knuckles and now I will switch to the graphite ones. Which are equal to the Suzuki knuckles? And what will happen when I use the "0" knuckles?

Thanks
Cheers
Chris

The Suzuki knuckles are .05 deg
You should see the car be a little more twichy with 0 deg compaired to the 1 deg knuckles.

Thumbs up DIFF COVERS FOR LCG

Info for those that have the LCG. I received my Diff covers today and have discovered that you only need to order one packet. There are two diff covers in the packet. Don't do as I did and order two packets, as they are not required.
I have not fitted them as yet. I also received the steering arm long spacer set, which I will retro fit later. these items were supplied by my LHS Hobby Habit for those in Australia. Thank you to them for there efficient service. I will take a picture and post when fitted.

This is my LCG with diff cover pics, yes they're come in 1 pair per package. It also supposed to fit to the SDW, but haven't try it yet.

For SDW, you need to scribe off some part of the diff cover at the area which cover the small bevel gear. The diff cover sit 90% at the bulkhead but you need removable glue (like UHU or silicone glue) to make sure it doesn't move. Will post my picture of it later.

I'm having trouble with the steering cranks.
They either keep getting loose during a race or I have to overtighten to keep it from happening which in turn makes the steering to slow. Is there solution or fix for this?

And who is selling the diff covers?

Thanks

Why don't u use locktide for the cranks (if you mean LCG)?

The diff covers are original from Yokomo.

Where did you purchase it though? I'm going to check to today but I'm pretty sure Yokomo USA only brought in the conversion kits and not the full kits.

Default Steering Hub Carrier

Hey, guys, I got a Yokomo DP chassis on a trade for a Tamiya M04L and I bought a CGM chassis and parts off of olhipster1 from rctech. I'm trying to convert it to the CGM but it seems the previous owner of this Yokomo DP had some missing parts. I'm looking to find out if I can buy some Steering Hub Carriers King Pin Collars seperately or if it only comes included with the Steering Block. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
