Hmmm,

Solid axle front and rear.

Where did you get that from???????

Let us all know what you think about it. I remember when I mentioned the idea that everyone laughed and said it couldnt work. Now everyone is using it

Heheheheh you are right modellor, the front and solid setup its great.

Even with that in mind, for a short/twisty/low-traction track as the one i usually run i prefer rear diff (very hard) and front solid.

Tabushi: HAHA! I love it! Lot better than the bench at the end of my bed

Modellor: It works great ! Everyone at the track thinks I am crazy! I don't think they have heard of that set-up before. By the way what is a good set-up for the front? It pushes like a pig! I run on a short parking lot track. The back end sticks like glue, there is no oversteer in the car at all. I have yellow springs on the rear and gray's up front, but I am having trouble dialing in front grip.

Vulso,

If you are using the front anti-roll bar you may have to loosen it off. Take off small amounts at a time until the front stops pushing. If it is completely loose and still the front end pushes can you swap cars with me

Only joking, my car pushes at the front too now that the weather is changing and the grip level has increased significantly.

I like to run 1 deg of toe-in on the front wheels which would account for some of my push but I found that now that the grip is picking up I am having to run the front of the car a lot softer to compensate for the rear grip.

I run on foams so my options for changing set up where restricted more. I softened the front (something I hate doing). Try running a silver spring and work with the anti-roll bar to get a nice feel. If you still get push then try using a shore softer on the front tire.

My current set up for the twin solids is:

Front

Silver Springs
2deg camber
one thick spacer in front for caster
1deg toe-in
40shore foam tires
60wgt shock oil
front anti-roll bar at 45deg angle

Rear

Yellow Springs
2deg camber
1deg toe-in
37shore foam tires
40wgt shock oil
rear anti-roll bar at hard setting (as far back with the eye as possible)
floating rear body mount

I also run stock rear side pulley and alloy front side pulley
68% steering dialled in.

This is only reference as it suites my driving style but it may not be ideal for a different style. But it will give a good starting point.

I am so searching for the Yokomo GT4 S-Type 1/10th sedan RC car. I have been wanting this car ever since I saw it hit the Yokomo website, but everytime I have the money saved up to buy the car, ITS GONE!!!!!!!

Yokomo needs to release more of these cars to the hobby shops. Cause I know for a fact that there are alot of Yokomo Fanatics out there dying to get this car.

Steve (SpeedTech) - Do you have any idea when this car will be available again?

Ron - I heard that. Ian said he was gonna be one of the "Team" drivers. If that's so, that is too awesome. I've decided to work on my Yok instead of replacing it with the MTX-3. Now that Francis is "one of us" that just helps me out. Now there are 2 of you guys I can ask when I have no idea what's going on with my car.

YOKOMO_KING I am trying the solid front and solid rear setup for the parking lot track I run on. I supposed to be good for short to medium tracks. There are alot of ways to go with set-up for the Yokomo:
front rear
one-way solid axle comes on GT4R
solid axle rear diff comes on GT4 RTR
solid axle solid axle
front diff rear diff

It all depends on what you want try and buy and what suits your driving style and track the best.

As far as hop-ups, I am looking at getting the Centax clutch and new Shoe-Type two speed. The aluminum parts are good and look nice, but they are heavy. I hear they and strength though, so it is kind of give and take. I also got the Penguin RC carbon disc, I heard it's better to use them with regular pads than the hard pads because of wear. I like the 32mm rears as well, on the 190mm rear width set-up. SpeedTech RC has practically every hop-up you can get for GT4, I would cruise the website and see what you like. Hope this helps.
