That motorpod is BEEFY!

one would think that it would have been a gain on having the needed weight on the chassie so its actually possible to get some damping action on the pod.

There motorpod is nice. We sell all the F1 yeah racing products at SpeedWorld for over a year now. We have had no problems with any of there products.

Acually the only thing I have had a problem with is there 10 stack of gears. They must be made for touring cars only because I can not find diff balls to fit inside the hole properly. I e-mail them and they never gave me a answer. I bought every diff ball you can imagin and nothing fits. Can some one help me on this problem. I will e-mail again to Yeah today and ask again.

Thanks Billy

The Exotek is cheaper but the Transformula includes the rear motor pod and servo mounts. I'm guessing the handling will be nearly the same since they are both setup essentially the same?

the YR conversion kit seems mainly used F103 parts(front end) but Exotek used F104 parts................so i think there will be much different on performance and setting.

moreover, YR still using damper plate with grease while Exotek changed to oil damper which should be easier to manage.

I agree - I'd prefer shock or damper tubes over a disk damper. But then again this shouldn't be a problem to change to the more modern solution.
Except for the width, which should be an advantage, it looks like the wheelbase i shorter as well.
The side springs are further out on the TransFormula and this should lead to the use of softer springs.
A back to back shootout between these new chassis is going to be very interesting indeed - I'll keep you posted.

You can easily put F103 front end parts and tires on the Exotek. That is how i run mine.

My Transformula arrived yesterday. It comes preassembled as a T-bar version. Link conversion parts come in plastic bags with wheels, manual and a decal sheet. All screws are titanium (nice!), everything looks very good. Wheelbase is about 10mm shorter compared to a F104 or F1-09 - just as I suspected.
