Re: Yokomo Caster Block Problem and Solution

Screw - shim - caster block - shim - knuckle

+ I noticed that caster block itself plays in the suspension arm, so add shims there.

Plastic knuckles might also be the reason.

Re: Yokomo Caster Block Problem and Solution

It may seem fine but it's not the same with and without them. If you don't see the difference, then probably there is nothing to worry about.
But anyway, SD-414B + Low caster Knuckles + shims = Zero play for me. Stiffer than a C-hub

Re: Yokomo Caster Block Problem and Solution

The ammount of play in your video is just ridiculous. I tested this low-caster block on 4 chassis and none had anything close to that. I recommend using SD-414B part instead of stock kingpin, and add some shims for extra - neatness. Mine have zero play!. And your link system - I tried it before. It ...

Re: Holding More Steering Angle

Try harder springs, heavier oil, more shock angle, more camber, a little of toe-in at full lock (I believe that is negative akkerman).

Re: rwdanthony's Yokomo DIB

THanks for your options too. Actually, i am pretty good at setting up the chassis, so there are no reasons for it so spin out. In fact, It doesn't spin out much as it is now, with defective one way, but still, it bothers me.

Re: rwdanthony's Yokomo DIB

THanks, I'll try this Alcohol shake thing.
THe point is, that oneway was new and had this problem out of the box. It was rather significant, since car tend to spin out because of that.
Just interested, if you had this problem?

Re: Surface Types and Tires

Yokomo R2 are great on concrete and asphalt.
For carpet you can use Any polycarbonate (more slip), ABC, polyethylene (a bit less slip). R2 are good on carpet too. Tdrift and Diamond cuts are poor on carpet and good, but wear to fats on concrete and asphalt.

Re: How to drift with diamond cuts?

I suggest you sand them until they turn flat - it's the best way. Otherwise you have to tun ridiculous amount of camber.

Re: Active Rear Link Suspension Kit, any good?

Why would you but this just for compression active camber when you can do it with standard setup?
And for the stability - it's just a matter of suspension setup and speed of counter-steering (reactions).

Re: Tatsuken ashi suspensions

So, could anyone tell me what is going to be the difference between 9deg camber/ 0deg kpi and 0 deg camber/9deg kpi. Still don't get it.
Isn't KPI just adding more camber?

Re: Longer runtime

get a 5000Mah Li-po and a low voltage beeper. That's how I rode my sprint wen I started. With firebolt 15t brushed motor you will get almost 50 minutes of riding. Also, you will have to make 2 or 3 stops during these 50 minutes to let the motor cool down. If you do that, motor will last for 8 months...

Re: general suspension settings

I can't really remember camber setups for concrete, but you can always test it by rubbing the tire over concrete with your hand (imitating camber and no camber). Rest of the setups as far as I know, it's same as Asphalt. Another thing to keep in mind - only use 1 set of tires for specific surface. D...

Re: general suspension settings

What surface are you running on? Basically, what you need is to find the right balance between oversteer and understeer (slide and grip) for both front and rear wheels. For instance: If your car spins out a lot - you need to increase rear grip (in this case chassis will become more sharp) or decreas...
