pinggoy once again www.yokomousa.com is your friend, just look under the team susuki header in the shop tab on the left side of the page,

on a side not, while i was at yokomo usa today i was talking with Butch, he showed me a little trick that i figured why not post here on rctech, for the front C- hub ( or caster block) and steering knuckle, use the TI style king pin for the the bottom and use the king pin from the new mr-4bx ( part # bx-414KB ) for the top, you will need to make sure to use a 3mm tap on the steering knuckle, and you may need to grind off a few of the threads so it wont hit the cvd, and if you going to run the knuckle in the lower position you will need to use a 1mm or 2mm spacer between the kunckle and the top of the caster block; in additon as stated above, do not over tighten the top and bottom king- pin as it will cause the steeing to bind)

if needed i can try and post some pics,

BX ballcups all round. What is that front bumper he's using?

New steering knuckles also in those pictures, as well as rear hubs.

Looking from other pics, Masami used a wide range of HPI gear, including c-hubs, steering knuckles and rear hubs. You can bet Yok will release equivelent ones very shortly We don't want HPI stealing all the $ do we!!!
On the subject of ackerman, Yok will be releasing the plate that is 4mm forward. This gives more steering lock, but to work properly you need a hole on the steering knuckle further forward, hence why Grainger drilled a hole in his and why the HPI ones have been aqquired, becoause they have to holes already.

Default Yokomo MR4TC BD Set up

Help! Just got a new MR4TC BD! What a beauty. Only problem is that some set it up for me, claiming its a great set up. Took for testing a local track, but the set up sucked. The car's got no turn on corners, and I tried a few things but it just didn't work. Can anyone get me a link or post a real set up sheet from Masami or Easton? We run brushless open mod on outdoor asphalt, on sunny south Florida pavement, with low to mid traction. Also, how tight should I set my rear diff? After a few runs I melted those cheap plastic ones!! Either it was too tight, or I need some delrin or aluminum ones.

If you melted the diff, it was too loose.

Default Set Up Sheets, anyone?

Thanks for the info POPS..will look into this. Now, please help me with the set up sheets. There has to be set up sheets for the BD on asphalt, hot weather, low-mid traction, rubber tires. Right? YokomoUSA only has carpet...where are the asphalt set ups?

There is nothing wrong with those plastic diff, even Masami use it. If you can melt them you can melt the delrin diff as well.
