- Yokomo B-Max2MR - Arjan Van De Graaf - Vlijmen - Oct. 2013 -
25 deg casterblocks.
For added steering mid/exit corner. Used an AE alu block, drilled the holes slightly larger (3,1mm) so I could place heat shrink tube inside the holes and the Yokomo hingepin is now a perfect fit. However Tema is drawing 25 and 27.5 Yokomo versions this or next week for them to be 3d printed.
The shocks have a lot play between the housings and the shaft.
The only thing the standard bushings a doing is keeping the o-rings in place. The ones I made are with way closer (0,05mm) specification. These 1st ones are made from brass, but I will make Ertalon versions when time permits. (But 1st maybe see if the new Losi versions fit)
Adapted a AE slipper to fit.
No reason really, just because I can ;-)
Keeps the back more planted
Added some 1,5mm thick O-rings under the transmission to raise it a bit.
For added traction out of the corner. (don't forget to also place shims at the support in front of the motor, otherwise you'll tweak the chassis)
Still to be tested:
I now use 3mm droop limiter f+r, I want to try a bit less and go for 1,5mm. This to hopefully be more consistent on multisurface tracks, and not loose to much reaction in the car
Lighter front oil for added steering. More steering is never a bad thing ;-)
Try the 2 hole pistons. Should make the car react more aggressive. But wait and see how much advantage / disadvantage it gives on the track
Try a bit of antisquat. Maybe it will be a bit easier to throw the car around tight corners on the throttle, but have to see how much forward traction I loose in the process to see if its actually better.
The Tema casterblocks when there ready
