todb...

MIP complete axle/bone for Yok BD. Only on rear. Running the lipo tray so I can run the batt further forward for better balance and 5600's dont fit under the top deck. Also have the drive train flipped so weight can go down the centre line.

Default S400 MORE STUFF

I've been trying more mods on the S400 to keep the enthusiasm up before the S401 becomes available. Below are are few pics with ideas implemented.

Enjoy.



Second S400 gear diff installed on front with machined 2mm alloy shims to centre in bulkheads.



Front rear toe/suspension block now mounted flat for better strength with more than adequate clearance for belt with tentioner mounted just behind steering belt crank instead on top deck. This allows belt to run high enough to clear hinge pin mount. Even if roll centre shims are used.



Picture of belt tentioner now mounted just behind steering crank.



This shows amount clearance of belt.



Antenna also is now mounted on chassis instead on top deck as well i have fitted a EXOTEK LiPo brace to keep the LiPo position secure along the chassis line of the car.

You can tell i have too much time on my hands !!



Cheers

Ren

you are a motivated guy to keep trying that much new stuff. Looks good, all that effort is easily seend in your car. If only I had a track to race at. 4 Box's of s400 stuff sitting in the garage waiting for me to move again. I will have to suffer with ofroad

I'm really dying for the S401 to be released, because the S400 was super dialed at our track.

Gentleman, I need some help. I found a TC race in albuqure(sp), new mexico in late feb that I want to attend. Needless to say I have not touched my s400's in a long time. Parts are not a problem for me as some of you know. What I need is setup help for 13.5 rubber touring car class using all tekin equipment and Jaco Blues as handout tires. Also 4 hole spur gears that I can mount without wobble. Thanks for all the help in advance. Also which body for this class? I have Gear diff's and spool as well. Please be in depth your advice. thanks
