Here is a neat tip I got from gospeed....

Xray Battery hold downs work on the YM34....With a little modification. I'll post some pictures after I get home from work. All the credit goes to gospeed (who actually installed them for me after putting them on his car)

actually the xray battery hold down works on any car. I have both so I think I will put the xray batt hold down on my ym34

Sure, it will fit on just about any car....

But the only car I am concerned about is the YM34


And my Mugen MTX2, but that's a different story...

Does anyone know if you can use the Yok rear hub carriers for this car to change toe in?

THanks

yes you can, you have to drill out the hingepin hole and you also have to use the yok universals and bearings, unless you can find some bearings that will fit in the hub but also arent too big or small for the YM34 universals

Since the alloy rear hub has been available here with different degree, we dont need the yokomo rear hub.

By the way, I was able to look at a built YM34 type T at a LHS. It is real nice.

You can also use schumacher battery hold downs on the ym34.
If tou drill a hole just behind the tape slot and countersink, they fit great.

Kansas....yes.....the MR4TC/Pro/World's/Special rear hubs/axles/bearings work....and you do have to drill the hinge pin to the correct size.

Upside....WAY cheaper......
Downside.....find a friend that has a yok that has a spare set of rear axles. I used the aluminum. (lighter)

I broke out the old YM34 this last weekend. I'm really satisfied with the way it worked. I finally got a good front swaybar on the car. I also figured out some stuff for the front end.

The swaybar i mounted with som old TRC swaybar mounts on the front-front suspension block. I used a cut down associated bar, and mounted the balls on the front of the arm. Arthur from Integy clued me in to the mounting on the block at the hobby show. Worked really well.

Arthur had also showed me how they mounted the long camber rods when we were at the carpet nats. I think I might have gone one better though. I mounted the rod at the hole where the top plate mounts to the bulkhead, using associated shock ends. This alows you to get the rod really close to the chassis, and you can vary the height with washers to set the amount of camber change. Lower rod = more change. Higher= less.

I set the fastest lap time for stock rubber tire sedan, 13.3, and did it 5-6 times. This was with only the layshaft one way, I think it could be faster with the front one way too. I hit too many corner dots to get tq (18 second laps screw your qualifiers, doh).

The only bad thing was that the car seemed to be easy to roll over when it got on a corner dot. I personally think it had too much traction, but going to harder tires can fix that.
