Good day guys, i usually bash and race with my friends on concrete, and so i was trying to get as much ride height as i can from my bd, what i did was instead of placing the pin of the hub carriers on stock position, i placed on the slot closer to the dogbones,

i'm posting because i'd like to ask you guys what particular effects will this give me?

What other brands, spools will fit a Yok BD ???
I know the Scythe can use a Yok spool.
Any other brands have same dimensions or slight modifications.

yeah its a nice place to live. our only rc shop closed two weeks ago (not that it stocked Yokomo parts anyway). everything has to be imported and duty paid which is around 40%. i always say u guys are the lucky ones with the built tracks and stuff.

yokomo blues all around
all possible hb suspension parts

damperposition:
front shocktower: middle between 2nd and 3rd hole
front wishbone: middle between middle and outmost hole

rear shocktower: 2nd outmost hole on old bd shocktower
rear wishbone: middle

frontmoste hole on prototype ackermannplate (equals stock steeringrack with sd-202)

1mm under inner camberlink ballstud all around

1mm under front suspensioblocks 0 under rear blocks

3 toe-in in the rear, SD-300F05 front

I'm not sure what dampers and droop they used so here's what i use atm:

Rayspeed 3*1.2 pistons
400 Muchmore front
350 Muchmore rear
80% rebound

frontdroop 6
reardroop 5
both on hudy blox

remember if u use the plastic gauge provided by yokomo u have to set the droop to 7 if u want a rear droop of 6
Don't ask me why that is but I tested it with hudy blox, an associated gauge and an alloy yokomo
them 3 are correct, the platic one always shows 1mm less so -> want 6? set 7!

i too had that problem. i was told that the diff was too loose and the heat would melt/fuse the central parts together. this is with a plastic diff. i rebuilt it as per above post and i used tread lock on the nut. on the first run it was it slacken off but i was able to tighen it back. it seems to be holdin up. this is with a mamba max 6900

with brushless i think diff rebuilds is a very important part of the prep work at a race meet.Instead of sorting out brushed motors you have to spend the time rebuilding diffs and instead of brushes and relevants spares you know have to stock up on diff hears and diff balls etc..
