I have the same problem using a front spool on my car, So I switched back to double one-way on one of my BD and love the way the car handles, But on my other BD I use a front diff for 19T Class.

Of all the car I have ever driven YOKOMO BD is the best. I've have been running consistent week after week with this car.

I think my local track might be switching to stock instead of 19t or mod, so I might not have to worry about breaking spools until the next time I travel out of town.

hi everyone,

ive just been looking at a few setup sheets from uk racers. Chris Grainger uses Tamiya shock piston #3, why would this be any better than the yokomo one? does anyone know the difference and does anyone know the part numbers for the pistons that will go into the yokomo shocks?

thanks

the yokomo pistons are slightly to "small" for the yokomoshocks. theres a gap betwen the piston end the wall of the shocks, which oil can go through. Tamiya Pistons fit perfectly. I use them too in order to have better working shocks.
with rubbertires I always used 35WT Losi Oil on Asphalt.

i thought it was becuase the tamiya pistons already have 1mm hole in them so it is easier and more precise than drilling the yokomo pistons out

Tamiya only has two & three holes pistons, I suppose Chris Grainger use three holes pistons(not #3). It has three 1.1mm holes and 9.9mm in diameter. While Yokomo pistons have smaller diameter, 9.72mm. So the gap between piston and cylinder wall is quite big. I see a lot of yokomo set up from masami and other japennese drivers use yokomo #3 pistons with holes enlarge to 1.0mm. I try both piston last summer, Tamiya 3 holes pistons has a bit more grip but the differece was small. Tamiya pistons are a bit thinner, so you will need some thin motor shims to take up the gap. part # 53573.

you really need to use the different pistons or drill out the std holes when using oil thicker than 50wt, the oil is too thick and can lead to very unprogressive shocks on the bench and dodgy handling on the track.
