In Japan, most guys run their side springs on the outer hole position (on top of the side-link). I prefer the inner hole position, however, you'll need to run a slightly firmer spring (inner hole position).

Just a quick note on this chassis.

The overall length is 2 mm longer than the stock Yokomo C3.1 chassis. Which means if you're running the Team Bomber adjustable bulkheads then you'll probably have to move the axle in the forward position. If not, then you'll be running a 5 mm longer wheelbase.

By all means give it a try and see how it works with running 5 mm!

They seem to have gone away with the optional axle positions.
The rear offset is set 1 mm back. Also the axle adapter height position has been lowered. This will allow you to still maintain legal ride height while running tires that are 39.00 or smaller.

Hello!

Sorry, I couldn't answer your message. Thanks Mach10_shooter for giving him the info. I know the owner of Team Bomber. His name is Kato. Nice guy, and very friendly.

1/12th Graphite Axle Kit with 3mm Offset Hub - Includes : Axle (IRS2112BL), 3mm Drive Hub (IRS1126BL), Clamping Hub (IRS219BL), Diff Cone (IRS527BL), Diff Nut (IRS203BL), (2) Ultra Lite D-Rings (IRS2511), Diff Nut (IRS203BL), (12) Diff Balls (IRS204)

The above is what I am using. I'll measure the shims tonight and let you know the proper spacing.

Just a picture to show the different wheel colors. You can still run the Yokomo front wheels with no problems. If you're all about looks, you can run any brand of front wheel with no issues. Keep in mind, as you change from one wheel brand to another the offset might be different. Which means you'll have a different front and rear track width.
does it need a thrust bearing on this differential?

Yes, and you can use the Yokomo R12 thrust bearing or a Slapmaster thrust kit. Works like a treat.
