I did just that last season - I ran 6-cell 1/12 with a 12 single. It's crazy! But way faster than TC's, more than 1 sec per lap.


Everybody plz type very slowly, I'm having difficulties keeping up with this thread! :-)

Nope, Yokomo hasn't made any of their 190mm TC bodies in 200mm so I don't think they'll start with this one.

Many Thx to all who spend some time for us to stay on top of what's happening in the US... Jarrod, Croy, Mike, Tqracing, and shane for providing this forum, if you ever stop by Switzerland, you're invited for a fondue!

Later,
Paul

If you're talking about the type E pic on yokomo's site and the pic of masami's car with the type E, I can assure you, they are the same body

The headlights and grill and such are painted on, the stickers on the body at the yokomo site are what's included with the body.

I wouldn't run the "catch me if you can" stickies unless I were VERY sure about my driving skill... This is the kind of stuff that can follow you around at the track for a lifetime if you get your rear whooped during a race!

Go Masami, whoo-hooo!!!!

I read above that a lot of drivers are using spools instead of oneways for more steering Last time I used one I had much less steering, I suppose he meant that at least the drivers can brake

Cobra81li200,

Well, you are basically right, but running a spool requires a different setup to compensate for the lack of turn inn! Different camberlink position, Kick up and Anti Squat are the most common changes I know of.... However you will get more on power steering with a spool!!
