The part number for the lever is FM334, the ball cup is just the same as a standard steering linkage.

It was $38.80 from Southern Cross Hobbies, the big advantage of this is that the output shaft has a ball race in it, it just smooths the action out so much!! I also bought for $24.50 a complete gear set for the diff, There were actually enough gears to rebuild 2 x v-one-r diffs (thats 4 x v-one-s diffs).

Default 92013 Kyosho Inner Sponge

Hi,

I have some questions regarding Kyoshos inner sponge 92013.

I use the 92014-35 V Slick Tire M-35MN and my local club only allows Kyosho parts hence I need to use the Kyosho sponge.
Problem is I have very bad experience of this type of sponge. On my older car, a Super Ten, I got a trail at the inside of the tire after only a couple of minutes of racing. The setup of the car was fairly good. Soon the trail had become so deep that the tire split up.
Now, this exact thing happend with my V-one S with the kit tires. Knowing that these tires are not that good I still wonder why this happen? Is there some way I can prevent it but still use the Kyosho inner sponge? BTW, when I place the sponge inside the tire the edges of the tire tend to be higher than the center of the wear surface, like a "U".

The first race of the season is tomorrow so I'm a bit stressed right know I appreciate all answers, theory’s, speculations etc. Just gimme your word!

(Sorry for this long input, I've trouble formulating this into something sane! And yes, English is NOT my native language.)

Whoopa!

Try using the foam inner sponge 92903, you'll find the tyres will wear better & grip better under most conditions...we've been using them for over 9 months now and have had very good results...
Also, try the 92902 series of tyre, they wear better than the 92014's

Default Sponge

Thanks for your information Lue.

The problem is that our club has decided that only the 92013 sponge should be allowed! (How stiiuupid is that?!) So, I'm stuck with them for the time being. Any clue why I get a trail on the inside of the tire? It really buggers me

I understand the introduction of control tyres, but the control of everything having to be kyosho seems a bit over the top!

Out of interest Lue do you have a copy of the Kyosho cup regulations?

There could be a number of reason for this line on the inside of the tyre.
1, To much toe out
2, To much negative camber
3, To much caster
These factors either just one of them or a couple of them combined can cause this problem of a wear line on the inside of the tyre.
The best way to find out how you tyre is wearing is to put a line across the tyre with a crayon and then go out and do a few laps and see how the tyre is actually sitting on the track bring it in and see what part of the line that has worn off .
Then adjust the camber or toe till the line wears off evenly across the tyre
Thats why I would rather run foams as you can see how the tyre is wearing just by looking at it.
Hope this helpswith your problem.

Does anyone know if the Kyosho Special engine mount is for PS or Non PS engines? Anyone has any spec of the engine mount for Pull start engine? I need to know the height of it. Thanks
