It's easier to super glue the bearings using a cotton bud. Simply run the cotton bud around the holes on the steering plate (with glue obviously) allow the glue to dry, then pop the bearings in.
Clean any excess dried glue away and that's it...job done. HTH

From my testing the Stratus 3 all purpose does not have as much steering as the Mazda 6, For even more steering I would also look at the Parma M. By just looking at the bodys I would think that the "3" would have more steering by the fenders having a small lip, but from the feel the "6" has more steering going into to the corner...

Well, what can I say!!!!! The KO Grand Prix was the most insane 3 days of racing I have ever had! I had an awesome time at the West London track that I have never been to before, and what a track!!! I had a good weekend qualifying 9th in the 27T A and finishing 8th and taking my 3rd Top Junior driver title in 3 weeks Big congratulations to the other 3 Yokomo drivers in the A main, Rob West, Rob Baxter and Remo! Thanks for all the help guys

Default New Yokomo Springs

Hi, would anyone be able to tell me how the spring rates of the new progressive springs compare to the rayspeed springs, i am looking at buying some of the new springs but would be good to know which ones are the same as rayspeed blue, yellow, and white and if any are in between yellow and white as there is quite a big gap in rates between these.

Thanks in advance
