You would use it with a diff and a spool, so you can have 4 wheel braking

Thanks for that babytoy, so u have 2 pins in then, makes sense, i will give it a try?

Default SoCal raceway setup

Hey guys, I'm going to be getting a BD and running at SoCal in HB and wanted to know if anyone has a good setup for it. I've been out of this for awhile(deployed) and since I'm still stationed in SD I don't get to race as often as I'd like so I don't want to spend a lot of time just trying to get the car around the track. Thanks in advance for any help.

I'll run stock for a couple months and then 19 for a while and move to mod once I feel comfortable racing again.

Nice Mod Babytoy. Reminds me of the YR4 series Yokomo's. They had the same deal on their pullies. I just don't understand why Yokomo didn't do this in the first place since they've done it in the past?!

I'll see if Robert Itoh will convert my SoCal setup to a setup sheet and post it on the Yok USA site. My car was absolutely dialed tonight, been working on the setup little by little and I finally hit it spot on.

Default Overdrive/Underdrive

I was reading in the JRX-S thread that T.Hodge always uses overdrive when using a spool set up (basically a larger pulley in the rear - is that right). It is supposed to give a lot of front end grip entering a corner which is what every good spool set up needs!
Randy, are you still using this on your SoCal set up? is it a noticable change? Do you have any pictures with it installed and did you have to mod the Losi pulley at all? I was thinking of trying a Corally RDX pulley, but these are 42 teeth, is a 2 tooth difference front to rear too great?

Cheers
Chris

In the days of wide touring cars running on foams, the cars always got better as the front tyres wore and got smaller in diameter, so you probably have a valid point.

I think a 2 tooth difference would be too much, and besides that, the belt would be much too short. I have been running a rear tension cam that I modded to give the belt some more slack in the rear for the past couple weeks. Last night I put a stock cam on and just cut the adjustment notch off and moved it so the diff is all the way forward, the belt is extremely tight like this, but the car works much better than it did with the looser belt, I think it was actually skipping from the overdrive. I always run overdrive when I have the option to, spools, 1 ways, diffs, whatever, it just gives the car more steering. Hopefully my SoCal setup will get posted and for those of you that like a ton of steering, that will be a good setup to go off of.
