So you decided that the .075 t-bar was better after all? In earlier post you were saying you didn't like it. Thanks for the help. This is my second 12th scale. My first was a Carpet Knife 3.1. Boy was that a big mistake. The Yok was so much faster than the CRC, but the CRC was very easy to drive. I just can't see it ever being very fast like an t-bar can be.

You sure that was me? (I'm too lazy to read all my posts on this thread). I'd only used the thinner t-bar in one race and it was OK, not GREAT. All my 075 t-bar runs were faster than the Yok t-bar runs. It's really a personal preference, Skid Marks swears by the Yok t-bar, I like the .075 myself.

Yeah, the Carpet knife is a pig, I race it in one race last year and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. Too many moving parts, too heavy, doesn't transition well. With the Yok, it's not much of harder to drive, but it requires you to be more finese, can't just throw the car into the corner.... makes you a better driver anyway.

Oh well, maybe it was someone else. Thanks for the help. The only different thing I'm going to try is white rears and double pink fronts. The purple ang greys are good, but I think for the track we run on more traction is needed. It is the newer Ozite from what I hear now, so the purple grey seems to hard for traction, but We will see what happens. Thanks again.

I noticed yokomo is making a hard and a soft chassis for the yrx-12 now. What is the difference between the two? Is the hard one just thicker? If so, what is the thickness?

2.1mm and 1.9mm thickness. To do with traction issue.

I've broken the front graphite brace, I know 2 friends of mine both broke theirs already. That part is real flimpsy so I got the AE L3 front brace, cut it down (the Yok chassis is narrower than an L3) and used that instead, no more buying that $6 part!

Default Re: set up

Try this :
0 degrees toe in
Reactive Caster front end
Both caster shims in forward position
18 front spring( 20 if track is grippy or to suit driving style)
Yokomo 2 degree axles (kit comes with 3 degree axles)
Trinity red stuff on polished front kingpins (bail on the ti ones steel are smoother)
Assc 070 Tplate
Blue spring ( silver if grip is low)
Yokomo 450 oil in shock
Rbrc thrust lube on damper plate..this is critical as it is med to heavy and tacky and slow the car down side to side and helps compensate for flexy nature of the car.
Front tires (trc magenta and 1/4-3/4 compound to suit track and driving style
Rear tires (trc grey full compound...white if the track in not that grippy)
Yokomo 12th body

I don't use any kind of lube at all, picks up all kinds of fuss from the carpet., especially on the kingpins. I use CRC teflon rear pod discs and teflon tapes on the graphite plate so the rear of the car actually moves left and right a lot smoother. I also use Paragon Ti damper post so when the rear pod moves, it free flows when the rear shock is being compressed and when it's moving left and right. I tried all the lube at kingpins and rear pods, it makes the car too sticky and doesn't transition well at all.
