Yokomo mr4tc rwd (work in progress)

Postby boxhead1990 » Tue Jun 10, 2014 7:06 am

Okay so I aquired this a fair while back with a high cs ratio and plenty of mods

Got sick of trying to get ahold of cvd's here and there

Then it sat for ages and I'm in the process of sorting the front out

So far I'm searching around for some y arms and a solution for the upper arms that's simple and more of a single arm

Was looking at yeah racing lowers for a newer model then this one il look more into it tomorow when I get some time to email the eBay seller and ask for measurements of them to ensure they will work

Also changing from the front cantilever style setup back to an upright setup for now as it just flex's the front of the chassis and doesn't really work that well anyways

Here is a picture

Maybe someone with more experience with yokomo's may chime in and suggest a few things I'm yet to decide on front uprights yet I don't mind kpi on my sakura d3 which is my cs car so il probably aim to set it up very similar as far as the front end goes Image

You can use the mst ht lower arms you can did them on mst eBay (hobby best) they also sell the mst kpi upright all plastic for pretty cheap then get type c upper arm that should do the trick

I use the mst plastic uprights on my sakura but I think the lowers are too wide for this car

Well iv done the front end nearly

Just have to invest in a set of ball cups and ball screws to finish it all off and grab a gyro and make a battery holder to finish the whole lot off now I need to grab some bent links or make some for that front to clear the shocks and do a little more cutting of the front bulkhead and the front will be close to done :)

Had my first proper drive this arvo with it and I'm happy so far I'd like to gain some more forward momentum tho as it's a touch too taily right now and I have a funny feeling I just need to change the pulley sizes and belt and wind it back a touch I think

Also it has good low speed stability but has no hi speed stability currently so I need to work through these issues now

But I have a funny feeling they should be easy fix's
