I have also been looking for the GT4 S, but Steve at SpeedTech said that Yokomo isnt going to be ditributing them for awhile since they are pushing their new elcetric sedan.


Also Ultimate doesnt have them either. I dont think you can find one in this country right now, unless by some chance one shows up on ebay.

Yokomo_King,

Am not sure but you probably meant a Front One Way, right?
I dont think the car would be any good to drive with a Solid
Axle in the front.???

If so, the Front One Way would be something that needs no modification. It should fit straight out of the Package for as
long as it is one for the GT4.

Hope this answered the question..

Hi Ron,

Solid axle in the front is actually faster and better than a one-way or a normal diff. The car handles a lot better with it too. I run solid axles front and rear and was probably the first person to do it over a year ago when I got the GT4R. You should search for the post on the Yokomo forum where I suggested this was better and the responses I got back then. People didnt believe until a couple tried it and agreed. Now most people are running this set up and Yokomo has made the solid axle standard on the RTR.

Yokomo_King - To make up the front solid axle you follow the exact same procedure as with the rear one except you use the pulley from a front diff.

You will probably notice that when you take the pulley off a front diff there is a diff casing seal comes off with it (Part that holds the gears). Take this of the pulley first and then go ahead with build up procedure.

Ask modellor and Tabushi about the solid rear and solid front diff combo, modellor said it works.
I've tried it a long time ago..running regular rear diff and solid front in a parking lot track... I was faster but was pushing a lot.

Hhhmm..

In that case, I stand corrected.
I guess, I really have not been using my Yoke as
much as I should have. My apologies to you Yokomo_King
and now join you in asking the same thing. I would certainly
like to try that out myself..

Modellor,

Do you have a picture of the Front Solid Axle in yours?
Also, from the instructions you have indicated below, I
gather that I need to buy another set of Rear Solid Axle
Set and substitute the rear pulley with the pulley from
the Front diff?

You likewise mentioned that the RTR has a Solid Axle as
a standard feature, is that for the rear still or does Yokomo
make ones for the Front now.?

Thanks again,

These are in the front but I have yet to see an actual front solid axle spare part sold separately. I wasnt even aware they came in the RTR until some people started asking questions about how to change back to diffs and what the difference was.

I dont have any pictures of my car. I have been plaqued with anti-digital camera syndrome. First it took months to arrive due to Christmas shipping delays and when it does finally arrive someone my brother had in the house has stolen it.

I hopefully will get it back shortly and then I will be taking pictures. Maybe Tabushi can snap a few shot in the meantime of his car to show you.
