I made the front diff with Yokomo parts and it came out great, the only downside is the crappy Yokomo diff screw, I'm gonna pick up some spares because Im sure I'll be breaking them especially when I crank down the diff.

I've never broken a Yokomo Diff screw! I guess people just tighten them down too much or something. I dunno. They are thicker than AE.. much much thicker than Tamiya. Maybe it's the steel??

I have no issues with 28mm tires on the stock suspension aside from the front upper camber link ball cup. Ya gotta kinda grind it down (pending on what hexs you use and/or wheel spacers).

I also run my shocks on the inner hole on the arms.

If I can get off my butt.. I'll post my carpet setup sometime soon. It's just a starting point. But works good so far.

I run AE Yellow up front and AE Coppers in the rear.

I broke a few Yokomo diff screws on carpet with foams in the front diff, but I did run almost locked.

Thanks guys. I am running Xrays-but I have a BMI TC4 to test for a few weeks. The when thats done I thought i'd give a JRXS a try-but the 415 looks good too. Maybe with a carpet chassis (batteries moved a little forward) might be really good.

For anyone interested, I'm tearing my car down right now and going over everything, I ran the delrin outdrives this last Tuesday and they have a noticiable amount of wear, actually more than my plastic outdrives got, so I'd recommend sticking to the stock ones.

I'm gonna try to get the swaybars balanced on this car, they seem to want to lift one arm higher than the other really badly, so getting those right is gonna be a fun job.

which derlin outdrive are you using?

the optional outdrive for the 415 or the Evo III?

anyone have spare blue aluminum shock collars and want to trade for red ones?

I'm using the ones for the 415, the fit and everything is perfect, but they wore quick.

4 or 5mm would be my guess, I dont have any batts unpacked, but that will be a close #. Since the steering rack is aluminum you could grind the bottom a hair and gain another couple mm.

Cool. As long as I can make the car 50/50 or 51/49 front to rear weight bias-alls good.

It's underweight, so some lead should solve your problem.

Randy Caster- Can you share your SoCal setup with me? Also, I can't seem to find the Sorex 36R's so would 32R's be fine at the sacrafice of tire life?
