Heres a pic.... the car has;
1. Full set Shooter graphite
2. Shooters from A arm shims
3. Shooter rear dampers
4. Shooter L/R alloy motor mounts (gearbox)
5. Shooter blue alloy stand offs

I can't remember where the servo mounts come from and the rest of the car is AE!...

...Kinda looks like a Yok don't it??!!
I definately like that car, I think I just decided which 1/12 scale I'm going to get, as that is the same thing as the Yokomo car basically. How is the strength of the chassis?

Yokomo does have 2 option chassis for the YRX12, but I have never seen them in person.

I foung this pic of the shooters 1/12 scale chassis.



It looks like the countersink is offcentered with the holes... by a lot. Was your chassis like this DTM?


Also, anyone know if the rear motor mount and bulkhead plates from the Yokomo will fit on this chassis?

the car has similarities to the yoke but it is not the yoke doesnt have any batt strap slots and some of the chassis features like some of the cut outs are slightly different.
especially noticable in the batt slot area.

I didn't think that the Yokomo had those slots for the battery tape so you can use 2 seperate pieces...

I heard that it worked with the Yokomo chassis, so I ordered one

yoke has the black version first and then it comes the SSG version. I have once own a SSG version and it is too beautiful to run it and I decided to sell it to my friend.

how can you tell the holes are off centre judging from the picture. just wonder

since it is a replica of yoke main chassis, you can use all of the parts from yoke on it.

The problem with the first batch was that the chamfer angles for the countersinks where too shallow. Even when you put the screws in tight...the countersink would not lock into the chassis.

This was cured in subsequent batches (ie. my replacement chassis and motor plate). Their are no problems with any off set of the chamfers...it may just be a camera angle thing on the pic.

They have used a fairly cheap grade carbon. This is the same stuff that 3Racing and other manufacturers are using. The strength is however fine.

Actually I like their alloy parts better. The anodising is quite thick and it has a shiny finish. I would say the alloy motor mounts are better quality than the Yok units (which are probably OEM by someone else anyway!).

I can't remember the exact price (it was a long time ago) but I got the full set graphite for the car- chassis, upper and lower motor plate, mid cross spar, alloy front suspension brace. I think I paid less than HKD500 (USD 65) for everything.......
