Hi,

the new suspension mounts are designed to give in-board toe-out.
They will be available in 0.5, 1 and 1.5 degree.

According to the only person I know that is able to read japanese the new wheel hexes are 1mm narrower per side and come with 0.5 and 1mm shims.

Cheers
Chris

Wanted to check that I am doing things correct....lol I got the One Piece RF "R" mount and took off 1mm from the bottom. When I put it on the car the belt will run on top or over the face of the mount correct? There was no room for the belt to travel under the mount.

Is the new release mount shown on Yokomo's home site the one to do this very thing?

Jeff

The reason I want to get the toe out block is so that i can get more
steering travel. I'm sure it does something else but more than any thing
i just want a little bit more wheel lock.

You can tell to one of those pix that the chassis is pocketed down right where the motor sits. hmmmm..... does this mean MASAMI also uses a different chassis?

What will the new in-board toe-out mount do? Is it design for the front or the rear? Or it just like using the "R" block instead of the "F" block infront but with adjustable angle?

If using the 1deg block in the rear, does it mean the total toe-out will be 4deg if using together with the standard 3 deg rear block?

Jochim_18- I think that chassis work is the result of a dremel or some other device, I believe it is a std chassis but with that area removed, he also used this chassis at the JMRCA Mod National. The chassis gets very, very thin where the motor sits, I believed it to be less than a mm when I saw one of the ones used!!!!!

pingboy- no they are not released yet, they are on their way though. If you are desperate to get your hands on them, just buy some hpi ones, they are pretty much identical

MARKANO: I would have thought they would be in use at the FR, where many drivers are using R blocks already to give outboard toe out. The varying degrees of outboard toe is a very good idea, but I can see it being expensive though with all these different suspension mounts....

The one that Team Yokomo used are from HPI/HB.
They need different outer suspension arm pin, so you need to drill the arm to 2.5mm to use it on BD.
Also you need to change the driveshaft...
I think that is better to wait for Yokomo one (if they will release it)
