As long as the asphalt is high-grip one and you can drive and dialed your car perfectly, i think it's possible.

Default yok shocks

It appears the Yokomo is selling there YS-1SSS-7 Low Friction Shocks that come on there SD and BD touring cars separately from the kit. They will retail for $30 a set of 4 with bladders included according to Xtreme RC.

I just wanted to ask the YOKOMO Drivers about the quality of the shocks and would you compare them to the Tamiya TRF shocks?


Thanks,
E

I will be down in Montgomery Alabama for a while starting next weekend. Anybody know where I can go to race my BD? I would prefer carpet but asphalt would be fine.

Yokomo shocks are of equal quality to tamiya shocks in my opinion. Virtually identical design.

Nothing different in handling. Check your laptime with both universal and dogbone type driveshaft, then you will notice the different.

are you saying that they wil be faster with universals?
the tir cvds (with dogbones) ive got weigh 4 grams each, the yokomo hardened universals (the silver steel ones) weigh 9 grams each. surely that wil make more of a differnce than the way they are joined together?

How is the power more direct with a universal? If the cvd has no slop and a universal has no slop, then they both will be direct. If anything, the universal should be slower b/c the center of inertia is larger and the unit weighs twice as much as a cvd. Force=mass x acceleration
