The Yokomo shock body features a bigger inner diameter so if you use a tamiya piston the shock will get too soft as too much oil passes around the outside gap!

I'd still rather get a 1.1mm drill bit though.
unfortunately that is not the same.
Try to get a 1.10 drill from somewhere

using the inner hole on the steering block makes the car loose a lot of steering but also greatly reduces the risk to traction roll

Hi,

I wonder if a front gear diff could be a good choice with 10,5 turns motors to have more corner speed?

what oil should I use, 100 000, 200 000 or more?

thanks,

Nico'

i ran the gear diff in front on my photon with good results , use at least 100,000 in the front and about 10-15,000 in the rear.

why 100 000 instead of 300 000 please?

with 100 000 it's more a diff and with 300 000 it's closer to a spool?

For the Yokomo/spec R diff, you will need at least 300k in the front or under high speed brakes the car will feel very unstable. For slower classes you might get away with a bit lighter. And you will never go away from 1000-3000 in the rear.

HTH,

Antoni
