pinggoy... when you assembly go to assemby the off road kingpin on the BD caster blocks you will see that the alum sleef that comes with the off road king pin will stick up out of the caster block, just use a dreml with a sanding drum, ( i just left the sleeve in the caster block and grinded away un-till it is flush with the casterblock)

I hope it's understandable... If not, please ask and I'll try to explain it in a different way.

@BJ: As the new C-Hubs and steering knuckle allow more steering throw the mounting holes on the steering knuckles are further forward to prevent wobbling at maximum steering throw. To keep the ackermann effect the same the holes have to be further forward aswell.

thanks that is what i was trying to say. but what this about new c-hubs and steering knuckles????

Hi,

the new suspension parts (rear hubs aswell) were tested by Team Yokomo before and during the Worlds. I don't know the reason for the rear hubs but the C-Hubs and steering knuckles are designed to achieve more steering throw.

Cheers
Chris

Camber Location on front C-Hub: Got the car 2nd Hand and the car uses the King-Pin ballstud as the outside location for the camber link. Does anyone run the locations on the rear of the C-Hub? If so what handling characteristics are you looking to get from doing so?

Thanks.

Jeff

Can anyone tell me what colour Rayspeed springs come as standard with the Masami BD edition, as i'm currently looking at buying one? Also what springs are most people using outside on asphalt, bearing in mind im using the HPI silver springs at the minute.
Thanks in advance

I'd say the orange springs are the equivelent to HPI whites and the pinks are the same as HPI pinks


We have been testing the Rayspeed springs in equivelent to the new white progressive ones. Basically, the progressives gave more grip. Great outdoors, but I reckon indoors HPI springs are a lot better for indoor racing as they are slightly less progressive and will help to prveent grip roll.

The new white springs are all progressive rate springs.

Why do people compare the Yokomo springs to the HPI springs? What are the differences? If you dont know the rates of the HPI springs, its a pretty useless comparison...

With my testing so far I have found they have a soft initial feel on corner entry but as they stiffen up at mid corner they really give the feeling of the car 'freeing' itself up - seemed to me to keep the corner speeds up. I cant wait to do more testing with these springs.

hi

i lost the king pin ball stud on the steering block. and hard to get a hold of...

so i tried a ball stud on the castor block (middle hole), and i found it had no steering at all. (but i didnt have the shims to raise the camber link)

i am going to try raise it to the position as it would be if it was on the steering knukle and see what happens again....
