no blades on the pins for the shafts. axle pins and the out drives wear out very easily.

yes the steering slop. I think someone was drunk when they designed that

you are not using the Yokomo Saver? man you didnt use the best part of the car lol

Spur issue is a biggie for me because I have a full set of 48P Spurs and Pinions. Yoke only makes 64P ones which are useles for me. I have been told about the speedmind gears but I cant get a hold of them. found couple shops that has them but most are in US and most dont send to Turkey. US only. Champ didnt have it. and all others have the 64P. Xenon haven't checked. the only think I ever saw from Xenon is battery tape.

For building the car I did the way you told me loosen the screws etc etc. but the top dec screws wont line up. if you screwthe top fist an bottom later the deck tweaks. I just enlarged the holes and cut the top deck in half so everything fits and flexs nicely now.

yes I havent used most of the screws on the top deck as well.
Im using speedmind 48p gear....let me know if u need help....

you cut the top deck into half??? it's wont flex too much ???

i wonder where is Martin Hofer ?? he MIA nowadays.....

That's what I forgot to do, order another top deck so that I can cut part of the mid section off. I need it for one of the tracks I race on. Low traction parking lot.

Chu; Hook me up with some gears please

yeap. I cut the top deck from the section where the layshaft goes in. I am planning on another cut alon the deck as well but waiting for the traction to come up on saturday and test the track first. If the traction comes up then it may flex too much and ı do not want that either.

I'll have to say, one the places I have always looked up to for parts and accessories have been RC Market. They have good support and fast shipping. I always went there for Tamiya parts and odd things.

But now that I know Elwyn. Him and his team offer awsome support! I very highly recommend contacting Elwyn for your Yokomo needs! EMS from Malaysia was slow. But the new shipping from them is much faster. They shipped out my stuff Tuesday, I just got it this morning on Thursday. Can't beat that! Thank You Elwyn!!

I highly recommend both shops!

Hey MARTIN!? You out there? I have new aluminum diffs for my car. What do you recommend better, MuchMore Joint Lube or Tamiya AW Grease to lube my diff halves to prevent them from wearing? I'm going to try it out again. But this time I will re-lube them after every round. According to you, they should not wear correct?

Jimmy just file the outdrive and fit the Team bomber blade.
I did that to a set of original BD aluminum outdrives and it fit perfect.

I'm too lazy... haha. Maybe after this weekend I'll try. I'll be racing Saturday and Sunday. So I'll see how they wear then. If I see signs of wear, then I'll hit the file. I wanna see what Martin is talking about no wear.

Hey Elwyn, do you have Yokomo pit towels? I think they had 2 sizes... I'm looking for the small one.

hey peops I'm back, sorry for the delay

I was off to the euros on wednesday, went to croatia on holidays monday morning - friday night, then to the german nats warmup race this weekend :-)

report to follow


I use MM joint grease, haven't tested the tam AW though

as for the servo, I don't use the alloy mount, nor shoe goo

just a very good double sided tape to fix the servo
it doesn't move at all, similar to shoe-goo or CA, but is easily removable

spurgear wise, Xenon does make 48dp aswell, so does RW ...

steering system:

replace the 0.3mm shim with a 0.1, and put some glue on the steering posts but let the glue dry before pushing on the bearings, this way you get a slopfree steering in about 3 minutes ...

to take out the slop of the center layshaft I recommend glueing it ...
