The clutch on the Yokomo is fine, it's the two speed that some people have had problems with. The newer two speed on the R and PRO seem to hold up very well, though. I am converting to the Serpent two speed and Centax, since I can adjust a Centax clutch and the two speed is a shoe type two speed.

As for what parts to get, what are you planning to use the car for? For tight tracks, stick with the PRO and front and rear diffs with rubber tires. For large sweeping tracks, buy the R and use foams with the front one way and rear solid axle (all stock on the R). I bought an R, but the PRO would have been a better fit for me. The PRO wasn't available at the time, so the R was my best choice.

The aluminum side pulleys are only for use with foams with regular sized front foams and inch up rear foams, as the aluminum side pulleys overdrive the front wheels quite a bit to make up for the smaller diameter front tires.

As for hop-ups, I would HIGHLY recommend the aluminum clamp hex hubs and the aluminum rear bulk head brace (stock on the PRO).

If you buy the PRO, and you're interested in the solid axle, drop me a line, I would be interested in buying a stock differential off of you, and perhaps working a trade for a solid axle.

If you're curious about my setup, I bought the R, and I have:

1 stock planetary diff with Yokomo hard diff lube
plastic side pulleys (for use with rubber, and the stock aluminum ones for use with foam)
200mm rear to use with rubber (the R comes with a 190mm rear to accomdate 32mm wide foams)
Penguin upper radio plate
Penguin graphite brake disk
Penguin front bumper brace
rear aluminum shock tower
front aluminum shock tower brace (R comes with the rear aluminum shock tower brace)
aluminum rear bulkhead brace
aluminum clamp hex hubs
aluminum radio plate supports (the R comes with the aluminum radio plate posts)
Aluminum layshaft mount
Serpent Centax clutch
Serpent 2 speed tranny
Smitty Serpent conversion shaft
Smitty Ti hinge pins
Smitty Ti front layshaft mount
Collari XS12RTS 5 port turbo engine
Yokomo tuned pipe by Meilke (or however you spell it)

I also added small springs in between the brake pads to reduce brake drag.

No, I haven't started racing yet. I am still getting used to the car. I want to start soon, though. Any tips on local tracks? I think you frequent a few in the area, don't you? Let me know when you're there, and maybe we can meet up sometime.

I am hoping to start doing some racing this season, although I have a Collari turbo (non-ROAR legal, of course) engine. Does anyone run open or outlaw classes? I will probably get spanked, but it's all in fun. Maybe I can swap my Mugen MT-12 out for race weekends.

There is a Novice heat, a perfect way to run with out the concern of getting spanked by the others. I am sure you will do fine. Go to the link below for more info.

The Collari is a 0.12 turbo engine. The Mugen that I have is a plain MT-12.

I have seen pictures of Finishline Raceway, and it's very close to where I live (Arlington), so I thought about checking it out sometime.

Come out this weekend. Run what ever you have in the car for Novice and see what Damon says when you jump into your class.

Do you use AIM or MSN?

Nah, I don't use AIM or MSN. I never have time it seems! You can e-mail me though. My e-mail should be in my profile. I think you have it anyway.

My car is torn apart right now, and I am hoping to have it together by the weekend. However the engine isn't broken in, so no racing for this weekend. Maybe next weekend, though. Or would it be the weekend after next?

The following race is the 17th. I guess we will see you then.

Okay, I will contact you before hand and maybe we can meet up there. I might be able to talk a few friends into coming as well (GT-4RTR and HPI RS4 NR2).

If you can break away this weekend pay us a visit. I of course race electric but my pit neighbors (father and son) race the GT4.
