Hi all

What kind of droop settings would be recommended for rubber on carpet?

I had to reduce it a lot so now I have 2mm rear and around the same at the front. It's now inducing a tendancy to want to grip roll although it doesnt quite.

Thanks

6/5 on hudy blocks (associated gauge is correct too)

do not use the provided yokomo gauge to set the droop as the plastic gauge is NOT correct.

You can use it but to get the real 6/5 you have to set 7/6 on a yok gauge

WOW, the know the BD is out dated and needs to be upgraded when Masami cant get it on the podium at the Jap Nats at Yatabe.

The report I heard was saying there was no new Yokomo BD spotted, and the BD's that were there had no new prototype parts on, so if there is a new car coming out it has been kept VERY quite, only time will tell as Yokomo never seem to let out much info.

What ever happened to Chris Granger coming on here and answering a few questions, would be good to see him back on here.

One bit of good news is that at the Australian Nats run on the weekend Yokomo BD TQ'd and won 19t, and placed 2nd in 27t, well done Justin and Geoff.

The cyclone is just as old but did well. If you check the podium it was a check point sweep with different chasis. I have a feeling that they got the motor combo right.

Masami could just be off this weekend or everyone has just caught up...

Ive heard of people running the corraly blades. You might just have to Dremel the outdrives deeper to get that extra play you need.

Just got back late last night from Japan, so I can answer some of your questions.

Chris is unable to come on here as much as he would want as he doesent have internet access at his house. I can find out from him any answers you require.

We ran standard car at Japan Nationals, In terms of parts anyway, setup a bit odd due to track.

Only new parts were some new diaframs (similar to Tamiya ones but not the same) and some blue alloy shock bottom balls. They have also done some Yokomo scissors (very good) and some new 1.mm and 2.0mm drivers.
I have lots of pictures and will post some when I have unloaded the camera from my bag.

I think you'll find the cyclone is 1 year newer than the BD.

Masami was unlucky not too make podium, traction roll in 3rd final especially cost him.

We run Bomber blades in the back here in UK, Corally ones do the job aswell. You have to not only machine the sides so it fits but also extend the slot length till it almsot hits the bearing.

thanks for all the info John.



when i build my shocks i took out to the triangle pieces to get more travel out of the shock. im goin to rebuild them again of maintance. do i need anything in the bottom of the shock body? it looks as though it was designed for the triangle piece but if i take it out, would it affect the damping of the shock or any other issues? and lastly, is there any tips when building to shocks.....spacers to add......foam/o-rings above the bladder? im running the masami ed.

thanks
