Default delrin

I've also had problems when using delrin with trying to tighten the diff as it just seems to slip....anyone else noticed this?

seaball:
Yeah i agree.. delrin is the only way to go... rotating mass on your drive train makes a HUGE difference to your acceleration. I have seen many other cars have probs with slipping diffs but none of them where glued.

ausracer:
I hope that it nevers goes forward and they keep producing belt driven cars. If you like japanese cars and shaft drives.. get a barra or pro 4.

Default YM34 T and V3 for sale

Hi, I have a YM34T for sale. It's 1 season old and I am going to do offroad now so I am selling it. I have pics if you want them. Just email me macao_friend @ yahoo.com for them.

Also, it includes a brand new YM34 V3 as a parts car. You can put it together since this is a brand new kit, I bought it together with the T because I know my LHS doesn't carry Atlas stuff.

Anyway, both cars shipped, $170.

dam,

i didn't even know there was a u2. that would be nice if it were 0* kickup, as well as, the higher roll center. i have the A and the U3, but a B and U2 would make nice compliments. i would acutally use the U2 in rear as well, to reduce toe if the conditions called for it.

actually, using the U3 up front reversed would give antidive, and some inboard toe out. that might be fun since i have found this car to generally not be very aggressive from entry to apex.

I order the 1 degree rear uprights to bring total toe in to about 1.5 degrees. the standard toe in is 2.5 degrees (according to my setup station).

Will wait and c what the U2 looks like.. might be good for the rear. Part No. for U2 is ym8-351 (front sus mount type F0-U2)

I have also raised the front uprights up with one spacer below and one above. you need a different set of screws to do this but it seems better so far.

Any advice where to buy novak brushless on-line???

Got the new high roll center suspension mounts. They raise the inner hinge pins 2mm both front and back.

Also have the delrin outdrives and they are 17g lighter than the steel ones so hello to more punch.

Took 1 1/2 weeks to get order in from rainbowten even tho they didn't have the parts in stock. not bad i think. way cheaper than integy too.

Will let you know how it goes with after the weekend (1 race meet on rubber and another on foam to test it all out)

Hi,

not much difference at all, but...if you run the camber link off of the kingpin, using the spacers under the hub will give you more room above the carrier for a ball end. and you won't have to spend the $ for the block.

Thumbs down

i think there is less information about this car, than any other sedan chassis ever made. i don't know why, but there is about 10x the information for the type t. go figure.

on a side note, i will likely have one of these for sale here if corally, meets their anticipated september release date. it's got a few goodies, is in good shape, and will be very affordable.

sorry i was not more help to you.

Default Si

That's ok Seabal, you've been a great help in the past with the Type T. There's even very little info. on the Miawahobbies website for the Si and no other sites seem to mention them!
