Project Locked UP (Fully adjustable caster RWD D4) *Pics are working now*
#11
I got a D4 is a trade and it has a carbon fiber upper and lower chassis also has a bunch of aluminum. It maybe be a clone though it did come in a Sakura D4 box with manual. One of the guys at the track has the clone and mine looks like his except he has added the Yeah Racing upgrade to it. His drifts very well. At this point I would imagine he has about the same money in his as if he had started with a Yd-2 or RMX 2.0S.

It's a shame that most of the pictures aren't showing up, sure helped, you know what they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

I would double check the parts that are suspected to be cloned. I have experienced really bad quality with cloned parts on the d4

Cloned steering rack. Too much gap between the bearings and the steering post. Steering is loose and inaccurate . Can't be fixed. You need a proper one.

Cloned upper arm. Again the gaps between the threads and the cup joints are loose. Requires washers to tighten them

Cloned front knuckles. Absolutely unusable. Bearing do not fit correctly. Causing bearings to slow down . Design based on v1 which also hits the steering linkage during full locks.

Cloned front lower arms. Not much problems. But really doesn't add anything to value except that it looks pretty.

Cloned rear arms . Linkage to hubs are a little loose. You need additional screw to tighten the hub to arms.

Cloned rear hubs. Same as above they require a screw to be tightened.

I didn't try others. But would rather stay away from cloned parts unless you know how to fix it.

Decided to reupload the photos to my google photo account for archive purposes.

Took a bit to edit out the old pics, but figured it was worth it.

I don't want the steering angle over 90 degrees. Not sure where you got that impression.

You need as much angle as you see fit for your driving style. With near 90 degrees of usable angle I can set my servo EPA to where it works best for me. I don't use all 90 degrees, but I know it can operate freely that far.

NEW UPDATE...

I purchased these front upper arms a while back, and decided to install them today. They are made for a Yokomo YD-2.

They are designed to fit a 2.5mm arm shaft ! No adapters, no stupid B.S.. They even come with spacers that can easily be sanded down to fit everything in the Usukani bulkhead.

This has all but eliminated the play and slop in my upper arms. This car has a great setup now.
