Hi depending on track layout/grip i can surgest 2 try a stiffer grade springs and a 1 way, even on tight tracks the 1 way is faster than diff 'in my view' it takes some getting use 2 but u can prolly be half a sec faster per lap with the 1way after a good practise!!

running foams i would stick with diff up front.
my setup is a lot stiffer then yours.
AE purple spring front and rear.
60w front / 40 rear (two hole piston with holes enlarged a bit)
double deck (team bomber + standard screw together)
updated rear shock tower.
2mm up travel on both front and rear.
short camber link on both front and rear.

Thanks for the advice! I have the bomber top deck on the way, I will try the one way then a little stiffer spring and damping as you have suggested. Need to carry a little more corner speed and eliminate a slight push on power. May try a little antisquat in the rear for more on power steering.

On the long shock issue....I was tempted to pull the short shocks from my LCG and put them in this new BD. I found that it's impossible to stand the shocks up too much on the BD as the longer ones really limit up travel. Wonder why Yokomo elected to go with longer shocks on this car?

so far all my yoks came with the sss shock, i think that is the short one, and now came across some ss shocks the longer shock body one, the long shock should have more up travel.??

Default new part No?

Guys,
I THOUGHT, i have seen a new part from Yoke, which allows you to adjust the front track width.
It looked like a new hex adaptor with spacers,
But i have since not seen a part number or heard of anyone carrying them.
Has anyone seen a part number? please.

Thanks

Simon

Yok is offering a new wheel hex that will narrow the car by .5mm I think.
It also comes with shims so you could run the standard width.

Default been doing that for a while

the Mugen Seiki 1mm wheel spacer fit perfectly to widen track..and help fit foam tires on the car. Just a bit of a pain when taking off wheels...i forget they are on the hexes...and tend to misplace them.

but narrow hexes in the back would be great...especially for foam racing.
someone find that part number...

The shock shafts are completely retracted into the shock body before the chassis bottoms out even with the o-rings removed. The only answer is to lay them down a little. Lots of down travel though.....you could probably run 15mm+ ride height!

partnumber is ZS-011N

the r narrowing the front and/or rear by 1mm on each side.

I currently use the narrow hexes front and rear but I'm using a 1mm spacer in the rear. With this combination the car is unbelievable precise to drive, always doing what i want it to.
Found out that this car really needs the wing mounted far back, and I mean far back :-) On my mazda 6, I'm currently running the most, I'm only able to screw the wing down with only 1 screw cause of lack of material for a second one :-)

Btw. I'm running rubbertires on carpet with 3,5T brushless. The car is awesome and better than my T2 ever was. If someone s interestet in my setup just pm me or send me an e-mail

Yap on MAZDA 6 body you want the wing as far back as possible, the car is much stable on straight line and it corners better.
