there are different locknuts without that nylon thingy ... they are shorter in overall length and therefore fit ... they grab into the wheel and it's almost impossible to loose them

the part# is ZC-N4FBL

I just wanted to say that I am completly amazed at this car and get moreso amazed everytime I see it. The car is a little more than 10 years old, and has gone through many face-lifts. But it is relatively still the same car and is still ultra competitive to this day. I can remember when I was 9 years old and when this car came out, everyone was in amazment of how advanced it was. (this was when Masami was able to run his YR-F2 the same lap times as his YR4-F2) Hat is tipped to Yokomo's engineers that have made an almost timeless car.

Has anybody tried to use the shortest camberlink setting for the rear? If so is there a noticable difference between that and the standard box setting?

Ive also noticed that the new springs are way too soft. I'm only able to use the orange and pink everything else seems way too soft making the car way too lazy in tight asphalt tracks......

using the shortest rear camberlink is a huge decrease of rear end grip ... especially through shicanes

most of the time i use hpi pink/silver ... on super high bit carpet sometimes gold up front

yokomo progresssive springs only on low grip asphalt. if so green/pink
