hey mo, where'd you get this info? Could you give us a link on this yokomo centax clutch . There's also some issues going on in yokomo forum about ABC centax clutch (if i'm not mistaken) that can fit GT4 directly without any mods, and available only in japan

The Yokomo centax clutch is not ready yet. We will be posting it at our website once we know the ETA. The ABC centax is the same as the Ofna centax.

me tooo.. Can't wait to get my hands on yokomo centax clutch.

btw, what do you guys have on suspension setup? I'm using 50wgt trinity oil/yellow springs for the rear and 80wgt AE oil with brown springs up front. It works great with my driving style. That's the setup i use on revelation race track.
As far as the color goes, green springs = stiffer? I want to try something more softer on the rear. Thanks

Cheers.

Which green springs? There is regular green and dark green. Dark green is softest.

Default GT-4 RTR

Just to let everyone know. If you are looking for a GT-4 RTR. Speedworld Raceway has 2 in stock right now. 1 Porsche and 1 RX-7. I believe they are $309.99.

The Mugen centax does work with the Yokomo 2-Speed. A colleague just test fitted one. Check out this site for cool parts including a new 2-Speed.

Default Diff Housing

Just got my self a GT4 and found that grease is used instead of oil in the diffs. Can the housing be sealed using gasket sealant to take oil?
I'm still running a MTX and would like to use the Mugen oil.
What are the grades of oil used for Yokes?

When I had my GT4W, I smeared some RTV where the seams meet. Some people used Shoo Goo but it looks more messy. The oil still weeped slightly though.

Yokomo makes diff oil that won't leak. Unfortunately, only comes in hard and medium. Hard feels somewhat like 70K-100K? And medium feels like 50K. You can alter the effects by putting more or less oil.

You can use other oils, such as the Mugens... I use this compound called Seal All from Walmart, it works fairly well. But the Yokomo silicone is very good, put some hard up front and medium in the back and it works good for pulling out of the corners.

The Mugen oils still leak through. Yeah, you're right about the Yokomo oil. Works great. I run a front one way/regular diff rear combo.
