I'd tell you but I can't recall, but if you check on the Protofrom website, they provide a description of what moving the wing around does.

Send the cracked Jaco's back and they'll replace them They stand behind their product...

One of the locals tried Parma and popped the entire wheel hub area out of the wheel

I have Yokomo shocks with bladders on one of my TC4's they even had instructions on how to install them on theAssociated shocks (leaving out the foam)....but Ican't find a part number

iirc moving the wing fowards will allow the car to rotate quicker and the car will be less stable..where as moving the wing backwards will make it rotate slower but more stable.

Default Foam setup

This setup is for people using the plastic is fantastic chassis and parts. It hasn't been tested on graphite, but I suspect the results would be very close.

NOTE: The rear shock uses the outside top and bottom mount locations. I've also gone to the silver (middle thickness) swaybar in the front.

Car has been very easy to drive and very quick in and out of the corners.

Good luck,
Greg

Anyone know where you can buy that niftech Ti shaft on-line that can take credit card payments? I can get it from www.niftech.com but that will take some time to send a money order and all.

Or does anyone have any other recommendations for a replacement center shaft? If so send me a link to it were I can buy it on-line.

Think these are the yok caps, I don't know anyone who keeps them on the east side of the GTA, may have better luck in the west.

OOps the above are the Yok bladder caps, these below are the bleed screw type:

Default Shock bladders

I've been researching bladders for my t3 and I can tell you for the AE shocks the Yok part# ys-8dmh for the bladder only since we can't realy use the cap. Also Yok I think is the supplier for Rayspeed which makes an after market tuned bladder part# rs-04 for high grip rs-03 for med grip and rs-02 for low grip. What I don't know yet is who carries these on line! Any one?

Default Ya...2Fast4U2...

everyone keeps telling me the track is huge compared to the rest. The track is huge, but for me the lanes are too narrow and there is not enough room for a new guy like me to pass clean. Now that my car is dialed, I'm not hitting the boards anymore. The nice body Ken painted me is trashed now. My next body should last me more than 5 races! It's ready for the wall of shame, but I'm still going to have to drive it a few more weeks.
