SD-501 for the plastic outdrives and/or SD-501R for the aluminium blue rings.

Sorex tires I find tend to understeer in general. To help with understeer get the front/rear suspension mount F-0.5, take 1mm off the front wishbones to give a wheelbase 5/0.
Other thing I have picked up from reading this thread is the HPI front C hubs give you more steering lock to dial in if running a spool.......masami edition comes with a low rear shock tower which I've read is only good if running 4mm ride height and the track is ultra smoooth.
Check the front wishbones the SDW narrow wishbones are 1mm shorter both sides this will help. man by the time you do this you will have too much..LMAO.

As promised pics of new Yokomo parts

Firstly, new diaframs, like Tamiya but a matt finish to them not shiny like the Tamiya



Second, blue shock bottom balls.



Lastly, some new tools from Yokomo, scissors, 1.mm and 2.0mm drivers. You can adjust the length on these to whatever you want, very cool.

Nope, thats it. You don't have to use hot bodies parts, this years car was all Yokomo.

I have some more pics to add, but going to bed now. I will add some more later.
