It is the bulkhead cap/upper link mount that sits on top of the front spool and the shock tower mounts to it. It has 1FL/1FR marked on it.

I think it is a BD-302

hahah yes that even sounds strange to me...but maybe worth a try.

i was also thinking since most of the other yokomo drivers dont complain about understeer that much, that maybe it has to do with the body position. so i will check this at the next ETS race.

i should get more steering if i mount the body more forward right? dont wanna move only the wing a bit forward, cause this would take away too much rear grip. and the rear is a bit loose already.

i use ride 32 tires (preglued, handout tires in club). i have attached the latest setup sheet.

glad if you guys had any pointers.
Almost similar to mine running except that mine uses 500 shock oil f & r and thinner gear diff oil at about 1K. Mine have no problem of understeer. Mine you that our track here runs on low to medium grip.

Have just seen that Yokomo is going to sell double joint shaft for rear

Some drivers ran it at the last ETS in Apeldoorn, like Hayato and Tam's Boys. But I can't imagine what they are supposed to give to the car? Ok, for the front, it decreases vibrations due to steering, but in the rear... Does anyone get an idea of what they bring for the car's behaviour?

Thanks for answering,
G-rem

If the rear suspention moves, also there can be some binding due the shafts. Should be better with the double!
Smoother shaft movement under suspention movement!

Thanks for your answer...

I've to admit that it makes me a bit doubtful about their real utility... I thought original CVD's shafts were ample

Does someone already try this? (I know they're very recent, but )

Hi guys
I'm new to the Yokomo brand. Just a quick question.
I noticed on the setup sheets that for low traction tracks you raise the RC by adding spacers to the camber link and lower the RC on high traction tracks.... So this correct? I thought its the other way around??

Thanks
