Default MR4TC Interchangeable Parts?

I bought a MR4TC Special off of eBay and it looks like it needs some repair. I'm having a hard time finding parts for it. I saw a bunch of parts on speedtechrc and I was wondering if they would work on my particular chassis. Are most parts useable across the MR4TC line of chassis? I posted this message here since the Special is also a beltdriven car.

In particular, I would like to know if the following MR4TC parts will work with my MR4TC Special:

Yokomo MR-4TCSD King Pin Set
Tobee Craft Light Weight Aluminum Universal Bone for MR-4TCSD
Yokomo Harden Front Universal Driveshafts For MR-4TC
Yokomo MR-4TC Rear Dogbone for Low-Friction Universals


These parts were all found on speedtechrc. Thanks for the help, guys.

Easy way is to look up on this parts list and compare the part number... http://www.yokomousa.com/manuals/mr4tc_partslist.pdf

@Turtlemaster:
Hudy tools all the way. Nothing i've tried fits better, or lasts longer.

I'm getting a BD for next indoor season also. By the sound of it, it should be a winner on carpet with rubber tires.
I planned on getting the HB Cyclone, but the BD just looks way better when it comes to detail. My LHS stocks Yokomo parts also, and not HPI/HB.

Turtle: I've always used a Hudy 2mm driver. never had problems with them similar to what you've mentioned. had mine since '96 and they work just as well as when i first got them.

I would get the part numbers and check with the yokomo website parts list. Just a word of warning but I would't get the aluminium bones for the driveshafts, they bend way to easy

None better than MIP.....Thorp allen driver is the best and never wears out....in fact they even gaurentee it....if the tip wears or strips you send it in and for a minimal cost they will fix the tip for the life of the tool unless you snap the tool then it would be harder but I have beaten mine up and they are just that strong. The hudy tools are real nice too but really long. The MIP one is almost half the lenth but fits everywhere on the BD or any other car for that matter. They should be only $14.95 for one..Yes expensive but they will last for life. I just wish they made nut drivers...I think they do but way hard to find. I bought my MIP from Ultimate Hobbies. Just another good option. Becasue when I went to SoCal or Hot Rods or Ultimate or any other big Hobby shop When asked which tools are the best MIP is the top of the list. HUDY is second but is really just more of the name brand thing. Not knocking HUDY love there stuff just expensive.
Sorry guys went way too long.

Going out to 4 Fun Hobbies Today to get some more track time and a better base setup. When done will post a good base Asphalt outdoor setup. I am considering changing the shock oil though to help with the off power dive to the front. Any suggestions? I was thinking 50 up front and 40 rear or just putting firmer springs all around. What are your thoughts guys?
Thanks,
Stephen <><

Re: the 2mm screws

I did a review of the RW racing hex driver on my website.

Its not bad but the best one I have used is FACOM or SNAP ON. Those are the bomb and feel much better than the ones designed for hobby usage

Well if they are they sure don't look it. They have the HD arms for sure but the steering and hubs looked like the HD arm so I went with the Spare grafite ones I had for my SD....Perfect fit and I already had...so the kit parts are now spares.

Very consitant....Didn;t notice much push at all which is very different from my SD I had to put alot of work into getting all the push out of it. The BD doesn't come with a real setup sheet persay. But when you build it to its specifications it is real near my normal settings any how. Here is how I set it up.
2 degree camber
.5 degree toe out....Don't ask why it jsut works for me.
5mm all around
waiting on the lead weights to balance it perfect but when I am done I will post final setup.
I am going to 4 Fun today for some setup work.
Take Care and GOD Bless
