running longer front camberlink will have more in steering but it will make the front too lazy when recovering from one side to another

thus making the rear un stable...

What about changing the angle of the camber links? Making one end higher, or lower, how does that affect the car?


I was tearing down my car today, anyone else have the front spool rubbing on the top deck, bottom chassis, and screws?

He's trying out different cars for R & D, he said he's waiting on his car due in a week or two, but wouldn't confirm who's car it would be.

i.e. he is not a Yokomo team driver

skiddins that was the impression I got but looking at him and the feedback, I would be surprised if he goes else where.

Tried to have front link in longer position but they hit the spool only solution I see is raising a lot with shims is that correct.

U are correct skiddins, I stood in the same hall. I would of "raced with him" without the misfortune of a bent bulkhead on the car. But none the less I have to apologise for my incorrect wording.

Wether or not he ends up running Yok or something else, I'm sure we can all wish him the best of luck with wherever he lands.
He is a great driver and a very nice person, it's a brave decision to leave Tamiya that's for sure!

He's signed for Durango, who currently don't have a TC, so he's helping with development as well;
