I left Yokomo on good terms, it was just time for me to move on. I'm in Omaha now so I doubt you'll see me around stockton or gilroy anymore Can't wait to get my JRXS and start tearing up the carpet track here

Default More Steering

If I shorten the rear of the car up, in other words don't shim the arm in the center shim it so it short in stead of long will that also give me more steering?

From experience it kinda depends on where you need the steering.

Gernerally a shorter wheelbase will react quicker and have the feeling of more steering but moving the rear arms forward will give the rear end more traction during acceleration and while coming off the corners. As a result it can cause an on-power push.

Moving the rear arms back will generally give you a smoother feeling car but from mid turn on out it can give you more on power steering.

I'll probably get something to run offroad with in the summer, not sure on a buggy, truck, or LST though. Maybe a xx4 if there's enough interest around here.

The XX4 is still my all time favorite off-road car, that thing rocked. I want to start running some 2wd out here, thats the class that's big, and pretty much gets you ready to run anything else you want to.

Actualy no.... If you look the front lower part of arm it has been routed out for clearance at full throw.

Sokool,

That is a great observation. I had forgotten that.

I believe that extra angle on the leading edge of the front arms is only there to create clearance with foam tire wheels; so, I freely interchange the front arms with the rubber tires I currently use (no clearance issue with rubber). For use with foams, I can just dremel away that small amount of material on a swapped arm to use it on the opposite side.
