Are you Brits running Tamiya Pistons and Shafts in your shocks. I hear they are working really well. I bought some Tamiya #3 pistons, and they are too thin for the Yokomo shafts. So I found a set of 2 Tamiya shafts the same length as Yoke ones. Could not find a set of 2 more Tamiya shafts so bought a set of 4 shafts with e-clips at another shop. The set of 4 shafts are a couple mm shorter than the Yokes. Maybe I will try them with Yoke long shock ends? What ones are you using?

im not sure about this but i thought that the point of running the tamiya pistons is that they can be longer and get the shock length that is needed.?

Dan Hughes:Could you post your setup please?

Cheers


Carpet masters setup:
FRONT:
front one-way locked centre pulley
no roll bar
inline steering blocks
4* castor blocks
1.5 camber
skid mount angle:0*
1mm under both susp. mounts
droop: 5
arm posisition: 4-0
rayspeed blue springs
50wt oil
3 hole piston
1 o-ring
bottom hole for hingepin on castor clock
1mm under camber link
2nd from inner hole on tower
outer hole on wishbone

REAR:
0* hubs
1.5 camber
3* toe in
0 mm under susp. mounts
rayspeed blue springs
40wt oil
3 hole piston
1 o-ring
std link locations on hubs
0mm under camber link
3rd hole out on tower
outer hole on wishbone

The setup was good in qualfiying but in the finals it struggled to keep corner speed due to excess body roll with the extra grip.
I am going to test the car on this setup with roll bars, one-way pulley and stiffers springs. Hope this helps and hope to see you there!

Well, they sure won't be longer unless I am getting the wrong shafts. I heard that the pistons are smoother, softer and a better fit. If you wanted length you could just run the Yokomo SS shocks.

Pops i know that Chris Grainger has used the Tamiya bladders but not sure about the pistons. I'll ask him if he is at carpet wars. Also here is Ali's setup in PDF.

Rayspeed pistons, ti. nitrate shafts, and rayspeed low friction o-rings make for super smooth shocks. I can't imagine how anybody can assemble a more perfect shock.

Exclamation PARTS

Can someone give me some info on where to get parts for my mr4tc bd. Both of my steering spindles/knuckles are broke and need some new ones. I would prefer some aluminum ones but beggers cant be choosers.

Thanks!!!
Michael

Robert at Yokomo told me he was using the Tamiya #3 pistons and bladders. His car has been really dialed. Would you see if he has a part number for the shafts? Thanks
