Thanks.
Does anyone have this problem?
I installed the new rear bulkhead support, the one from W2L, after I installed it, the break is very hard. Is it like that or I have to do some modifity to it? Thanks.

just sand down the brake pads a little. You have to do that with
most nitro cars.

On my almost 3 years of experience with the GT4 Chassis i have to say that the car its GREAT ...

Now, on the "problems" list i think are (at least for me) :

1.- The dogbones "eats" a lot of the internal part of the axle ... and in case of the front part, the dogbone part of the universal tends to wear out a lot on the pin part ... im running front solid and rear diff so the stress its big on the front part of the car.

2.- Front belt cut very fast ... i cured this problem building a little front belt tensioner (ball bearing based). For guys with this problem i recommend using the front belt (kevlar) from serpent 705 or impulse.

cya !

Is the 705 kevlar belt a direct replacement on the W2?

Really cool to see some discussion on the Yokomo Nitro stuff. I am a huge fan of the electric cars and may get into the nitro this spring. All this info is helping me make my choice to stay with the Yok!

Good deal, if I have any problems with the stock belt, I'll make the switch.

most of the good racing should be with the sedan. You can
run a lola but the 200 outlaw gets thrown in with 235 class.
