Has anyone here tried playing with the bladder/foam used in the yokomo bladder shock caps? I've seen yokomo make three different types, the standard white ones, some softer yellow ones and stiffer blue ones, for different tarmac types. Dave, I've seen you've started using the Yoke bladder caps, you try out loads of things, you tried these yet?

Hey RBF, just been looking at your no roll bar setup on the Alex Racing USA site, I have a question or two

You seem to be using an awful lot of front end toe out, doesn't this scrub quite a bit of speed? or does the cornering speed more than make up for it.

You also have very little camber on either end, yet your suspension isn't exactly hard, so I'd have thought you'd get quite a bit of chassis roll, don't you get uneven tyre wear?

How does the kick up at the front help things?

I have a set on the BLue Cuda....but I have Rayspeed medium type blader inserts..... but I haven`t taken that Cuda back to the Track as of yet due to the fact that the FLAP JACK ATTACK CHASSIS IS JACK`D ..it`s toast Time for a normal chassis or a ALEX Web R2 chassis with new PAL Right motor mount...hmmmm

You would be surprised on how fast a Barracuda R2 is with a 2 Speed and a 17T Spec motor....I was having a hard time keeping up with him on the straights with a 12x2 Reedy Ti but the Reedy 12x2 Krypton would kill him and come close to the 1/8 GP car

strange that, I've seen someone trying out new motors and they found they couldn't get anything special out of the Krypton, it wasn't slow but there were plenty faster mod cars around running 12turns too. The put in a D5 flatliner and it was an awful lot faster, although it seemed to have an odd power delivery, it would start like an average good mod then when it picked up speed there was a big boost in power never seen anything like it on any electric car.

Hey Herm:
I made 2 slight mistake on that setup sheet....way to many ideas bouncing around in this mans mind
The 1mm shim (at present 2mm) is placed under the rear pivot on the front susp arm = more turn in\less caster

Front toe should read +.5 tow-out, looks like it says +5 deg toe-out on pic ?

The camber I ajdust to tyre wear, we have a small high-bite banked oval course at SoCal, that may require a slightly different setting for camber.

Utilising the long arms the chassis simply doesn't roll much, I am still trying to find which springs offer the best balance, this week I have the softest Alex springs on the car 1.4x7.00, with a liteweight Tamiya NSX body the car still looks fairly flat in the corners, now again the absence of any cogging on the Novak Brushless motor may help to keep the car from dumping over in the corners as much.

Next week is bladder cap test time, need more steering in this heat/humidity wave we are currently experiencing.
