I guess I will go for the Yokomo grease. I'm also running a front one way, which grade would you recommend for the rear diff? Hard or medium?

Well, if you stay that way then you could use either grease, but I'd probably stay medium. The thought being, the front one-way is basically a differential in the corners and a solid axle on-power, so when you gun it you want some front end pull which will happen with the one-way, but in the corners you don't want the rear to be stiffer than the front. That's all subjective, though, slight changes when using a front one-way can cause totally different driving styles, so hopefully people running that front one-way/rear diff will answer.

I don't remember where, but someone said possibly early next year. With the new Serpent and Mugens coming out, I'm sure Yok won't be far behind

I ran one of Smitty's 2-shoe 2-speeds this weekend. It's much better than the stock hammer type unit. No big rear end squat when shifting into 2nd anymore. I would recommend it two everyone. check it out at http://www.nwmcc.co.uk/smittysspeedworks/default.htm

Yep, yours is on the way!!
I did a little more work on the bell, be sure to show it off before you put on the car.
Let me know if you need any set up help with it!

I heard that Chris T was using a Yokomo Prototype 2 shoe 2 speed at the World Cup. And that it would be released soon.

Anyone got more info?

BTW my Kawahara Centax is on the way. I can't wait.

Default Car Tracking

Hi!
I'm having difficulty in getting my car to track straight. I think it's due to the unequal length of the steering rods. How do you know how much to adjust or the correct length on each side whenyou adjust the toe?

Check for tweak. Bent chassis or hinge pins might be a cause. Mis aligned wheel settings. Or unequal shock lengths can be a cause as well.
