... also, in my opinion the 2 belt system is pretty inefficient as compared to the newer cars... (shaft and single belt)

That BL car is sick, can't believe it can fit the components though. Impressive!

Has anybody tried the yok mini without the belt?

I have the car for 3 months now & have been running it ever since, because I have finished using my 1 year supply of 12th scale foams for pan cars.

I first tried running the yok mini out out box and found that 3300 4 cell with 8 t lacks runtime and speed.

then I tried 5 cells with 9 t , but extra weight and extra speed makes the car unstable because of its narrow chassis and CG is similar to the 1/10 scale tourer.

then I tried 6 cells w 11t . 4 x 2 , 2 cells on the top deck but it is extremely unstable to drive.

The yok mini is really a disappointment then, until I tried taking out the belt , front diff , and dogbones.and installed a 8t TI. making it a RWD car. with its OEM gearing I can get abt 7 min runtime with awesome speed and handling as well.

a bit of understeering though, still trying to work out something

The BL system fits perfectly. There is only about 1.5 to 2 MM of gap between the end plate of the motor to the left rear wheel.

When I had the 19T, I was able to keep up with the 1:10 cars running stock motors. Could be the drivers.

The BL have more acceleration and top speed with the same gearing. I am only comparing to the 19T, it is the only modified motor that I have.

I think the BL is the best setup for the car you could get... The car is made to be fun, so going with a no maintenence motor is the best option in my view. Hope they start showing up at SoCal soon.

sorry, i meant it doesn't have adjustable droop, except for limiting the shocks internally.. that would be something that an updated/aftermarket chassis could incorporate.. BUT, it doesnt matter that much right now, just getting it on the track is enough for me..

We're running our first official 19T Mini class tomorrow nite, hopefully we'll be able to get a few pics for ya'll to see

What's up Fellas

Tonight is the first night of the new Yok mini class. Should be lots of fun. We should have 5 or 6 of them running so far, and several others not quite ready to run yet. So come out and check it out, the cars are cool and fun to run.

The next series race should start around the first of the month. A specific date has not been selected yet. This series will be a best 4 out of 6 race series. There should be a stock TC class, Mod TC class and Yok mini class. The yok mini class at this point is a 19T spec motor class, but tonight will go along way towards deciding if we stay with 19T or change to a mod motor.

Later, Lee

P.S. the track is in Westminster, Colorado

Default yok dimension

Hey, I was just perusing the web and came across a japanese website where guys custom made their own yok mini's

I have a few extra MR4TC's here and am contemplating getting come carbon and making my own mini...

Any ideas? I see the crazy japanese making minis out of TC3's, tayama cars, alex racing cars, etc...
