when rebuilding the rear diff, is it okay if i just replace the diff balls and thrust balls, then flip the rings? will it feel the same as a diff with all brand new diff rings and balls?

I just re-sand the other side of the d-ring to make it a bit smooth, or sand it till the groove is gone. then use it as it is... Been running the same diff ring for almost a year now.

if you still having problem with CVD pin popping out to one side.
Here is another solution other then tightening that b!tching grub screw down.
~ heat shrink wrap ~

Tried those before it will hold up for a little while but they will come loose. Your best bet it's just get a hardened CVD that yokomo makes... I've been running it on mod class and it will take some punishement it will not bend like the standard steel dogbone.

mine holds up pretty well.. but again, I only run stock and 19t in outdoor with a spool. I found out that you can't over shrink it, it would be the best if you can find the tube that only shrink about 20% ~ 30% of its size. that way the shrink tube is not over stretching during the heating process.

My harden CVD is my back up...

looking for alternatives to the short ball connector (SD-401HC). any suggestions? also, the captured ball connectors in the T2 interest me (have a problem with popping turnbuckles)... is there a way to fit them in the BD?

hey voodoo, are you using the stock yoke ball cups? ive also popped them on several occasions but i switched to RPM ball cups, havent popped one ever since you'll have to shorten the ones for the steering turnbuckles.

Default diff works

The direct center drive and diff is a must combo for running foams on carpet.

The car will push a lot without the above combo but if you're going to run rubber tires..you can easily switch back to the one way setups.

good thing about the Yok setup it's cheap to build a diff compared to other brand cars on the market.

other suggestion for foam racing:
1 degree rear toe - get the Yok SD plastic pivot blocks
shave the foams down 1mm so they don't rub on the steering knuckles or use wheel spacers.

getting correct ride height may be a tricky at first..so play around with different shock ends. I try get the shock length to around 62.5
allow me to run 57.5 mm foams at a ride height of 4.5 in the front and 5 in the rear.

i appreciate the help thanks. now the next question is where is the best place to get yoko parts in north america? i was wondering if you can get offset premounted foams, it would save me from having to narrow the rims on a truer to get them to clear the rear shocks and the front hubs.

Default parts

there are a few places you can order parts from.
yokomousa.com
horizonhobby.com
speedtech.com
stormerhobbies.com

or try and see if your local LHS can them for you.

I use Parmas believe they come in at 26mm width and just shave the down the steering knuckles or the tires just a tad bit on the front only...they fit well on the rear.
