Personally I dont like how close the shock mounting holes are, but i guess they're not a problem on the CF Ackerman plate so it shouldnt be an issue on the shock towers I guess.

In the Masami tower they're no where near as close as the bomber tower. The holes in the bomber tower are so close there is no CF between them, the same way that the holes in the Ackerman plate are arranged.

The Masami tower at least still has some CF in between the holes.

Those that have been here a while will remember me. I haven't been here for a while since I have had some health problems, and a recent house move, so have not been able to put as much time as I would have liked to the hobby.

Having said that, we have just recently finished our National championships and my team faired very well indeed, all driving Yokes.

Son Joshua won his 8th National championship this year. He has hitherto driven AE TC3s and TC4s but this season took my advice and ran a Yoke BD - and won his 8th title just as convincingly.

My nephew Sam (17) ran a Yoke SD in the stock class and finished up 2nd in class, and the old man dabbled with a BD in the super stock class and ended up a very close 2nd in the championship. I had more wins than the first guy, and more fastest laps, but unfortunately I got taken out too many times. These youngsters have the cheek !!!!!

So all in all it's been another good year for JOHN BULL RACING.

I would like to thank our many sponsors and suppliers, namely Yokomo, Novak, Corally, Checkpoint, Team Brood, KO Propo, Proline/Protoform, TIR, Take Off, RW Racing and others.

And if you want to read more, have a look at our website: www.johnbullmalta.com

Hi,

the outdoor season just started and a spool becomes more and more important with the increased power.
Since I don't like the Yokomo plastic spool and the Titanium Racing ones is very hard to get in Germany I decided to make one by myself. Let's see how it'll last...

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

I know the shop and already thought about ordering some parts from him... but then I forgot about it...
Will try it, when I'll need something...

There are a lot of theories going on about the weight of spools and the momentums they carry.
But this specific spool is 4 gramms lighter then the one-way... It just depends on the material you use and in this case the spool is hollow...

Cheers
Chris

If you want ultimate strength (and weight) go with the speedtech steel spool, not so good in the stock classes though due to the increased weight and rotating mass, meaning slower reactions from the drivetrain. I'll keep with the trusty plastic one for now, it's lastest 2 months already, lets see if we can do the season with it

The plastic Yokomo spool is fine, running the same one from last year in we used in Mod. The lightweight spool will give you more steering than a steel spool.

I must have gotten a bad one then cause I ran one of the Yok plastic spools at the Reedy and it lasted all of three laps. The complete left side of the spool tore off all the way to the pulley
