The stock setup works really well at SoCal, the reason my car is torn down right now is because I'm trying to find a really good setup still. 32's are fine since the track is cold, but they will push more than a 36, check Speedtech and Ultimate, they will have the 36's. The Tamiya wheels are good, I run Yokomo precision dish wheels myself with a Yokomo STF insert.

When you guys have the time-can someone please PM or e-mail me the Yokomo parts required to make a diff. Part numbers are not required-as long as the descriptio says what car parts are from.


Thanks for all the answers already and for this one in advance too.

Were you there this past Tuesday? I was racing for the first time that day. My car has a total of 20min of use. I really like how I was able to forget about the car enough to actually learn the track. I'm hoping to do well at the next race granted I receive some batteries and a suitable motor(was running a brand new MVP).

Randy, what parts did you use from Yokomo to make that diff?

I was there Tuesday, I ran Pro-Mod. I'd recommend a monster stock motor for stock, the MVP's just dont seem to do very well with sedans from what I've seen.

To others, I threw away the parts list needed to make the Yokomo diff, but Im sure someone can post it.

If you can't get Yokomo diff rings.. Tamiya diff rings work as well... That's whats in my Yok front diff.

Also, I'm using Evo IV steel dogbone up front since it is longer than the TA04/41x bones. You'll need them too for the diff if you are using the old suspension.

Yeah, what Kilruf said. I hope futureal doesn't ban me for my long sig, but this is one of the most asked question here.

Am I missing something in the list? How about for the MS, do you need the F201 bones? Don't have my MS built yet and I don't plan on running it on rug.

You shouldn't have anything to worry about as far as bones are concerned with the MS since they are already the Evo IV ones... The F201 bone idea was tossed around before the Evo IV/LW suspension was around.
