Hello I have a stock rear yokomo diff and was wondering if plastic outdrives will hold up in mod?? Also is it necessary to run the blue ring around the outside of the outdrive??

Yes they will be fine. I have always used them.You will need to run the blue rings as this stops the outdrive opening up

Any ideas. I run on an open track and flowing track big enough for 1/8 scales

The sweet spot on the gearing with Novak SS10.5 is 5.6 FDR.... I used the same gearing on both large and small tracks.

This kit has the shorter worlds arm, is it best to fit the longer std BD ones, or what is the rule of thumb. What are the new shock bodies mentioned on here, are they the ones in this kit?..

and.. last week Chris Grainger was at Southampton track doing some private testing allegedly with a loads of new Yokomo stuff. Anybody have more info.

Cheers
Front wishbones, the standard BD ones seem to be better at the moment, easier to drive. Just build the kit as per the instructions and run it kit to start with. Its very good straight out of the box.

New shock bodies do anyway with cuting the top hat down that goes in the shock (you'll see in the instructions when you get the kit).

I can assure you Chris was not at Southampton testing loas of new yokomo stuff. He had a week off.
