Yok uses 2mm outer hinge pin, TC4's is 2.4mm. You may need to enlarge the holes on the Yok's arm.

I'll give them a try outdoors this weekend.
yeah would like to know when you do try it.

ok another question if you use the TC4 C-hub on your BD can you use the stock bushing or you have to use the one for TC4?

All it needs to work is:
Drill front arm outer hingepin holes to 2.4mm (2.5 works fine) and use TC4 outer hingepins.
Place a shim under the kingpin on the top of the c-hub (because the tc4 c hub is thinner this is needed for the kingpin to secure properly)
A 1mm shim to go on the outer hingepin, because the tc4 c-hub isn't as wide as the yok hub. To achieve the same camber link angle, place this shim behind the hub, but I might try it in front, which will move the outer end of the links rearwards (hard to understand I know!)
I got mine to fit properly and I'll let you know if they're any good or not.

No other chassis is available except from Yokomo. If you are racing on carpet I suggest you buy the stiff chassis.

Here is a better pic of this mod. He shoe-goo'd the fan onto the motor heat sink. BTW...That is a special one off chassis/tower set

Hi, i did exactly the same thing, twice!!! So i contacted a company here in the UK called fiber-lyte, they are currently cutting me a chassis that is missing the 4 cutouts at the very front, as i believe this is what makes the front of the chassis a little weak, and they dont play a part in chassis stiffness. If you contact them they may me able to cut you a chassis, in either 2.4mm or 3mm carbon, although im not sure about shipping to the US. I cant remember their site right now, but if you just google 'fiber-lyte' im sure ull find it.
