yes, you can buy the castor blocks seperately. Check on www.speedtechrc.com they should have them there along with any other parts you need

Your problem is the steering hubs. They are most likely stripped. Get new steering hubs and also get the lightweight Ti kingpins, and your problems will be over.

i think yokomo usanormaly change the kits slightly and instructions which is why the delay, i know you can get it from www.precisionrc.com in japan and www.microtechracing.com in england.

very pricey in england for us tho.

Hi,

I destroyed my good old servo in my foam CGM last weekend and now I'm looking for a new one. The servo of my LCG will switch over to the CGM and the LCG will get something new. Which one would you recommend?
I'm thinking about the KO 2343 and the KO 2363. Where is the main difference? Just the possibility to setup the servo and the cooling plate?
I'm not sure about the FET of the 2343.

Thanks
Cheers
Chris

We use the PS-2173FET for mod and the PDS-2143FET for 19Turn in two cars. Both are bullet proof and both are fast. The 2143 is digital and uses a little more juice than the 2173.

I talked to Yokomo USA today and they don't have any plans to bring the full LCG kit into the states, only the conversion kit.

KO 2363 is 2343 with heatsink. They have the same gears inside. Of course 2363 is more expensive than 2343. Depending on your budget, 2363 will give your car better look. I use 2363 and very satisfied. KO always...

Default YOK part for FT TC4

BD-118T Battery Tray. Is this the Yok part # for the white rubber looking things that the batteries are laying on the YOK BD.

I know this is the SD forum but I'm just looking for someone how knows about Yokomo & AE parts.


Do you think they would fit on a FT TC4?

Regards,
E

no they wont becuase how they attach to the chassis the cutouts are completley rectangular so they fit it, also there is extra space for them, ie if they werent in the car then the battery bar wouldnt be tight and the cells would just fall out.

so simply no they wont work in any other car apart from the yokomo bd and lcg.

Part #BD-118T is the correct part number for the battery tray, also they are black not white, that picture is a pre-production car so they look white but they are really black. And I dont think they will work on the TC4 without getting your file out.

You could always sell your TC4 and buy a BD

Hi,

does anyone know where I can get the Rayspeed spring retainers?
Shops all over the world are welcome.

We have a new carpet track here in Munich. It's nice to drive, medium grip and lots of corners. I will post pics later. The LCG was dialed and I lowered the current track record to 12.5 secs... unfortunately it was just stopped by hand... But with 17T it was 12.7 secs which is fast enough aswell...

Cheers
Chris
