Just to let you guys know the new Yokomo hardened universals have come in to Yokomo USA. They are supposed to fit the SD and BD without any mods.

Speaking of those, what can be done to keep the pins from coming out after a few runs? I have a set for the front and the pins now come out b/c of the slight slop that has developed.

I'm not sure, never had much of a problem with the old ones, hopefully these will be better. I always put grease on the joints to reduce wear, and that seemed to help alot. Being the new ones will actually fit in the fronts, there should be less stress on them than the old ones.

I'll try some HPI grease or auto axle grease. That might make them stay in their place.

Pops...I used the yokomo hardened universals( same as those I presume)when I first got the BD with a speedtech spool.I went thru 2 sets..1 broke the uni 2 bent 2 shafts.I went to a front diff then and never had any more breakages.I am still trying to get the same steering as a spool but no luck as yet.I still managed to win the State titles in stock ...but I used a diff.

Your guys opinion on what size of spur I need to use on a tight carpet track "80x40". Right now I have 102 on my BD. I'm thinking of putting a much larger spur gear on my car like 115. Can I gain any advantage on running a much bigger spur on this type of track.

114 is the largest that you should "try" to fit in the car.

Is their a big difference in performance of the car when running a larger spur gear on a tight technical track?
