It does not come with a spool, still double one ways

The driveshafts are like the ones from the SDW but beefier (according to an SDW owner), personally I'm not sure.

Still doing chassis prep.

Hi,

@H.Nilsson: Do you can read this? I think my Japanese is a bit rusty.... What body did he use? Which A-Arms? And what are all the notes at the bottom?

Thanks
Cheers
Chris

Hello yokie boys.

I have a question about the trailing steering knuckles, i have found a similar option for my 415, and i just want ot know what effect they have on the car?

Sorry if it has been replied ot already, i looked back through the last half dozen odd pages nad could not find a reference for it.

Thanks

Bradd

I think the main difference is it makes the steering less aggresive. There might me other differences but thats what I have noticed between the 1* and 0*

Thanks coons, anyone else got any different experiences? is it as much of an ackerman change as moving the steeringt link to the rear hole?

the trailing steering knuckles will smooth out the car on entry
but you will gain more steering midcorner to exit. it is almost
like adding caster to the car but a little different.

Almost done with my Build! Here are the noticeable difference from the BD.
The rear tower
the steering assembly, which clears the belts
the hinge pin mounts, on the front rear and rear front.
the CVD's, but I think its better to use steel for the front, well if you crash like me-- then change it, but if you drive like masami then stick with it hehehe
the white belts and titanium screws and the bearings which you can really notice when you spin it.
It also ha a "1" on the front knuckles

Here are some pictures, not done with the shocks yet.

I also changed the rear hubs (i have an extra one), used .06 spurs.


fpart: just follow the stock settings first, (it's masami's) just change it after a few runs if you are not comfortable with it. My friends run theirs yesterday and said the steering was more agressive, with regards to the springs will get back on you, my instructions is in Japanese some has english in them.

My YOKOMO BD is almost converted to MASAMI BD EDITION except for the rear shock tower and the universal driveshaft. Looking good!!!

Anyone here know where I can get one? ( New universal driveshaft )

The rear driveshafts are UJ versions. I don't have a part number but they come in the Grainger kit. A spacer is required between the bearings in the hub to support them though, and this reduces wheel wobble and spreads the bearings further apart. They use these driveshafts because they are supposed to give more steering and corner speed, its debatable

The Masami does come with the Bomber white belt, opened up a kit in the shop at the Worlds warm up.

I do not have a part number for the blue aluminum CVD's. They are much lighter than the steel version, but they bend easily.

Better to get the steel ones!!
