Also, make sure you take apart the DCJ (as they are assembled) and grease up using Yokomo High Protect Grease or similar and loctite the grub screws when reassembling.


HTH.

thanks guys! I asked Hobby Haven to ship the kit without the instructions so I won't have too many problems with duties. In any case, thanks for explaining, I rebuilt the knuckles like 5 times each side trying to figure out what i did wrong! Will be doing a test run of my car today, hope all goes well!

Thanks again!

I just finished putting together my new WXC kit. It was awesome. The DCJ's look good. I thought I was upset when the rear cvd seemed to be just the steel ones. But it looks like it may be made out of some sort of spring steel. I think it is a must for BD5 owners also if it is truly spring steel.

I also noticed that it seems Volker seems to be using the same chassis at teh carpet ets race in Italy this weekend. I thought this chassis was really for low grip tracks. Can anyone confirm?

wx lowerdeck is more suitable for low traction track.

Just broke one of my DCJ's last night. anyone had better luck? They were well lubricated and were thread locked tight. Running 13.5 with boost, spool up front and the 2 halves separated destroying my c-hub and my knuckle. No hard crashes...

Honestly am quite disappointed with them, it's the 2nd time I run my WXi and this has to happen just before TITC.

Any good alternatives to the Yokomo DCJ's?

agree. have also been running the version 2 of the specr for some races now in modified 4.5T. they start being a little bit sloppy now after some 40 batteries run with them .so far no problem at all.

Not sure what happened. But I have had the Yokomo DCJ for awhile now - over 30 runs worth with no wear or damage in sight (running 4.5t). I rebuild mine every 3-5 runs. Hope you get it sorted soon.

maybe I should give them a look. Will order a set. Do they use the same bearings the Yok DCJ's use?

I run around ten packs per track day, so 2 days worth of track days = 20 runs without a rebuild... DOH! Took it for granted that you need to rebuild these. Should once per track day be enough? Will order another set and see how it goes

Driftspeed carries Yokomo parts in the US. He'll be taking pre-orders for kits as well...
