hi there race randy, can i ask you bout your car? i'm also planning to buy a used type t and would like to know if you notice any worn part like in the dog bone and cup linkage! my yokes cvd has that problem where i replaced it with universals or metal ones!

hows the alum pulleys? still have their teeth, again my yokes lt wt pulley flattened a bit that will lead to slippage of rear belts!

thanks! hope to hear from you soon!

anyone ever weighs both the full graphite conversion xxxs and type T?

hi maski my type t i got is pretty much new so it doesnt have any wear i can find. i got a good deal on it. the guy that had it before me had raced it at a roar race and he said he had to add quite a bit of weight.

Does any one know about the parts compatibility between the AP and the type T?

The main thing I'm interested in is taking an AP chassis and bolting on everything else from the 'T'. And also replacing the front one-way with the AP diff, I thought an AP would make a good spares car for the type T.

hi, most of the parts are not compatible as describe in their web site! though some parts are still the same like the arms! there's a part list of present and previous versions of ym34 in there!

i have had one of these cars , and i fooled with it a bit lately.

1. if you are trying carpet, take the front suspension mount and reverse it so it produces anti dive. This also reduces caster, and this car has a lot for carpet anyway.

2. Move the camber link to the upper kingpin screw on the hub. You have to remove the ear on the hub carrier. Basically this makes the car steer harder in the center of the turn. Very good for foam and rubber. Here is a link to more pictures and details. http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...0&pagenumber=3

3. Move the front shock to the inner hole on the arm and the rear shock to the outer most hole on the arm. These positions seem to work best. Also the outer two holes on the rear tower seem best as well, but experiment.

4. Put the steering link in the forward hole on the knuckle. It makes the car react faster

5. go to the upper outer hole on the front camber link, and make the rear as long as possible. That is put the ballstud on the bulkhead, outer hole on the hub.

For rubber start around 40-50wt oil, stock spring is ok, or around 12-15lbs rating. Drill droop screws in the arm to make your life easier.

Default My views on Type Si

Atlas new racing chassis the ym34 Type Si is a limited Edition

The most Si parts cannot be used on the type T like the f/r shock towers, f/r bulkheads, and the lower mounts also including the upperdeck. i have not tried the delrin of type if it will fit but i dout since i think its muchshorter! i'll be building a type t later on so i can compare it to my type si.

but the main difference with the typs si is that all parts have been reinforced like thicker shock towers, over sized front one-way! it has no battery hold down so i have to use a strapping tape!

i drove my friend's type t and comparing with it, the Si accelerates faster out of the corner (not accurate since we use different motor and gearing) and both pushes when going into the corner. i'm still on the process of experimenting with different set-ups!

'till next tym!


RobK> will you be getting the Type Si soon? i may not have the luxury of time testing with different set-ups hope you could help me! have not tried modifiyng my front camber system yet!
