Basically I need the following bags from the original kit

Any help would be great
I don't know anybody who has more older MR4TC parts than Ultimate Hobbies in Orange, CA. 714-921-0424
You can also get them from Sheldons Hobbies in San Jose, CA as well as from Yokomo USA.

Default POPS

Pops

About a month ago you posted a set up with a spool, You said it still had a push to it. have you been able to get rid of the push? Are you still running a spool? I tried a spool and it seems to have just alitte to much push also, I tried alot of things to get rid of it and nothing worked.
I broke a few pins with it to, I switched to the yok hardened but I would like to try the ti universals, Where is the best place to get them from here in the states and do you know the part #?
If I go back to a diff with some thick diff lube. Can you tell me what
lube you have been using that is thick?

Thanks

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,

I have both the yokes on my BD and the TRF on the MI2 not much difference. The TRF spring collars though are made of plastic which i find somewhat disappointed cuz they cost more.

I hope that everyone that got a chassis on this batch likes them

Unfortunatly, these are the last ones that I am going to be doing, for a while
With Family, Real Job, and Full time school, all putting strains on my time, not to mention that each one of those chassis and upper decks that I did were cut out by hand, I need a break. So it's back to just racing

Sorry if anyone was waiting, but I hope that you understand
And again, I hope that those of you that got them really like them as I really enjoyed making them for you.

Later
Jim

We were able to get most of the push out by using a lightweight spool. Seems the heavy one was creating too much rotating mass up front. By switching to the Yokomo plastic spool it allowed the car to have more steering. I think Grainger is using a Ti Racing lightweight spool to get more steering.

I do not remember the part number, but you can call Adrian at Schumacher and he can get you the right thing. Some one posted the Worlds Ti Racing CVDs on an earlier post.

We only use a front diff on carpet, last year we used Yokomo thick diff lube, but per Matt Howard we are going to try the med diff this winter. It is working really good for him. This diff lube is for the Yokomo GT nitro cars. Only use this on the front diffs not the rear.

I guess I sent too many people your way looking for a chassis?

.

Very true. My car picks up about .1-.2 seconds per lap (on a 16sec. lap) by using a plastic spool. The speedtech spool makes the car push just a little bit more. And when I ran them back to back, the plastic spool felt better and had better laptimes.

the spool is quite light, but also very weak, bought one with 2 spare outdrives and after 2 meetings all had gone, with no major crashes..

I have been fighting a push with the spool, I have a speedtech spool in it. The car seems real good everywhere but right in the middle of the corner, it just won't rotate enough. I will try the Bd plastic spool and see if it helps. Last weekend I ran one car with a spool and one with diff, The car with a diff was right about the same lap times as the car with the spool, so I really want to get that push out of the spool car and I think it would pick up the lap times.

Thanks for your help
