The G+ bumpers are much thicker and stronger.

Thanks,

John already answered this.. but here is a way to remember.


They are called dogbones because they are shaped like.... "dogbones"

We are expecting our shipment of tires today.

Even if you don't drill out the shock piston Andrew's setup would be a good one to use. I don't know exactly what he meant but he might have taken a specific piston and just ran a drill bit (Numbered the same) through it to make sure it was sized correctly. I could be wrong though.

A drilled piston is a #60 piston drilled out to the specific size listed. The purpose of this, is getting a piston hole size in between the two stock pistons. Such as a "drilled 56" will have slighly smaller holes then a stock 56 piston but larger then a stock 57, because of the material that cannot be removed completely with the drill bit. Hope that makes since.

Default Aluminum wheel hexes

Is anyone aware of a company that makes locking aluminum wheel hexes for the XXX-s? I'm tired of chasing that plastic piece around the woork bench every time I change wheels. Any input is appreciated

Default don't like dynamite wheel hex

Hi,

I personally don't like and don't recommend dynamite wheel hex.

Dynamite wheel hex uses a thin o-hole to secure the pin. I have so far broken 2 o-holes already.

However, my o-hole type for my Yokomo MR4 don't have the similar problem as dynamite.

I have since switch to Trinity screw type of wheel hex. Which seems better.

Does this mean you don't have to worry about the limiters ? My bumpers have still got a bit of flex in them. ( DUH !! they're bumpers)

What about the difference in front shock length between the original and the GP ? Does this matter ?

anytime an o-ring fails it is due to an installation error, a small cut in the o-ring during installation...... especially when it is in a low pressure situation like the wheels hexes we use.....

The O-ring fits around the hex to hold the pin in place.

The bumpers are still gonna flex cause they are plastic. But in the G+ the bottom of the bumper where the droop screw sits is thicker.

In the pre-G+ days people ran the yokomo TC3 wheel hexs cause it made the wheelbase wider. The ones with the screw are better then the o-ring IMO, just don't tighter the screw down real hard.

Whats a good starting gearing for a 19t with a 90 spur with rubber tires on a 84 x 48 track?

Thicker, and I think they also changed the compound a little bit to make it stiffer also..

The shocks in the rear are still the .36 shafts and bodies, while the shocks in the front are the .28 shafts and bodies.
