robk- Thanks for the tips...i havent yet experimented with a sway bar set up on my ym. What did you notice that it did to the car handling wise. I am reallly happy with the way my car is working so i dont want to make to much of a change but was curious.

I highly suggest a front one way. I ran mine for the first time on carpet a couple of weeks ago and was turning the same fastest laps as all the other 'plastic' cars

I did have the same problem with it turning over very easy if i hit a corner dot...and it does some nice barrell rolls But i got that out of the way in practice.

Cool

I sold my YM34 and I just found out that I have the following parts in my pit box.

- 4mm front oneway diff. It's new. (I used the 6mm unit the first day i ran the car.) The list price on Integy website is $57.99. Who want it? make me an offer? $30? $28?

- a pair of alloy 2deg rear upright. Integy list if for $39.99. How about $20? $18?

Email me if interested. [email protected]

Gospeed -
The swaybar made the car get thru the middle of the turn better. It had a tendency to "park" in the corner without it. That is part of the reason why I think it's making a bit too much traction. The oil I had set just on a basic guess at 70wt losi and hpi #1 pistons. I just happened to get the car back into shape this week, and only made spring changes at the track. I wasn't expecting to run rubber tires, and ran the Atlas at the last moment. I wound up at yellow in the back and orange in the front, from the integy spring set.

I used to run the front oneway too, but i lost one of the drive cups in an outdoor crash this summer (lost in the weeds). Strangely, the car was really fast then too... i just got a new cup today so I'm gonna put the 1 way in.

There should be a way to keep the car from rolling over so much, but if you keep it off the dots it's fast.

Hey just wanted to make a quick post. I got the front oneway in the car, so I'm dual one way now. I ran the car out in front of my house, with pit 25 and 20 (its about 40*f here). It was awesome. I got a suggestion from Arthur to move out the rear shock to the outermost hole on the arm for max rear traction. It was stuck in back and steered like a muuuvvvv!! If it worked like this on a cold dusty street, i want to see it on a track. Good Night!

I've been looking awful hard at it but I think I'll wait to see how everyone likes the new arm mounts. I still like the old car. There are finally starting to be more of these (old cars) flowting around. we'll see when ever it get to the states..If we could get a date on when it might show up..I have'nt heard anything. Everyone I talked to don't have the answer..

any body used the Derlin rear diff on this car?

I am having problem getting the adjustment right.
I went through the manual twice and could not find out the problem.

To keep the diff from slipping, I have to tight it so hard that it almost wouldn't turn??

I don't want to go back to the heavy metal diff.

you need to glue the diff ring onto the derlin outdrive. dont use CA but "All purpose" glue, Glue it while it is still wet and assemble the diff at once. tighten it until the while unit all in place. Let the whole thing sits overnight until the glue dry and adjust the diff.

as i said, dont use CA. CA wont work with derlin or nylon.
as for "All purpose" glue, clean the glue surface with motor spray before you do that.
