Cool though.

Do you have a parts list for the yokomo parts required?

My LHS knows it's yokomo but doesn't know which parts they are.

Thanks.

However, when I tried them back to back with CS22 pre-glues (old rims though) at wrexham, they seemed to make the car understeer. On the 22's the car was pretty good. It maybe something that can be dialed out in setup though.
Did hear that the Sorex 32's seem to work well too (but use additive and warmers)

On the 415, I think I used about 0.3mm of shims inbetween the posts and top deck, on the MSX I have one 0.1 below the knuckle, and one 0.3 above the knuckle, so 0.4mm in total.

At this point i'm using the Sorex 32r's, seem kinda good but you have got to use additive and a high temp on the warmers to get em going good , without warmers they are rubbish.

Wow it must be cold over there! I'm using Sorex 36's in Stock because if I use anything lower like 32's they'll overheat.

I do have the option of using the 28r's but they chew up to quickly for my liking so i use the 32's which last loads longer (27t stock), at the moment though it is warming up (about 17*C air temp) so i'll just turn the temp down when it gets to mid-summer racing
