  Need your help guys.
Posted by: _YD2_Plus - 11-04-2016, 01:02 PM - Forum: Electronics - Replies (4)

I finished assembling my yokomo YD-2 Plus this week. I have the racing performer brushless speed controller and Futaba T4PLS. 

The frustrating thing now is the car does not go reverse, and not sure what I have done  wrong so that the does not go reverse. 

Also the ESC keeps blinking green. 

I really need to help guys and hoping to get some insight in order to sort out this issue.

  New drifter
Posted by: keala599 - 11-02-2016, 06:25 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (7)

Hey everyone,

My name is Keith Carlson, I'm 18 and moving to Oregon in a couple weeks.  I got my first hobby grade vehicle when I was 13, been bashing and racing 2wd Short Course Truck since day one.  I have always been interested in drifting, it's actually what lead me to actual hobby grade vehicles, except I grew up out in the boonies so flat smooth surfaces where few and far between, now I've moved out and come made some money I want to buy my first kit.  I'm looking RWD since it's pretty much all I know from the SCT, looks more realistic.  I've started 2 threads over the past 2 days asking for help about a Sakura D4 but no replies to either.  I'm not sure if thats because I didn't introduce myself to begin with (only just realized there is an introduction thing) or what, but I am very serious about getting into drfiting and any help regarding what I should get with a sakura d4 rwd to begin with would be great!

Thanks again hope to talk to anyone willing to help a noob,
Keith.

ive just gone through a bunch of threads and how to's about gearing but It seems like some of the threads were telling me the complete opposites.

I have a r31house grk with a 78T spur gear, my motor is a xerun 8.5T, esc is the xerun v3.1 100a, and I got a savox 1258tg servo. That's all I have so far...

What size pinion should I start with?

  Having turning trouble with spectrum srs4210 receiver.
Posted by: chris.lonergan - 10-23-2016, 04:54 PM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (1)

Alright so I've been into rc drifting pretty religiously since last December. I'm used to running an rs4 3 and a sprint2. I bought a spectrum d4xe transmitter and obviously had to get a receiver and digital servo, which is when I started using savox servos. Never a problem out of it until recently when I built an mst fxx-d ifs chassis kit. Since I've owned this chassis I haven't gotten one decent run out of it because it will only steer fully to the right, when I go left it's less than half of a throw, and when it does go into full kick it locks the wheel. The gyro will turn the wheels all the way but when I try it from the remote it doesn't go all the way left. I run with some seasoned drifters and even they're baffled by it. I've tried everything from upgrading the steering arms and wiper, to switching to a low profile servo since I noticed the corner of the old one wearing down from the arm hitting it. I tried re centering the horn and binding several different times Ive adjusted the camber, toe, caster, and wheel spacing. Nothing has made a difference. The only thing I can think of is the avc in the receiver still being active. It says it's not but it seems like it really is still on and I've seen countless complaints on how to actually cut the avc off. So that could be the issue. I'm not sure though. When I took the horn off I noticed the servo still favored one direction more than the other. I don't think it's the servo. This is the 4th brand new one ive bought with the same result. Somebody please share some wisdom, I don't want to buy a $500 dollar sanwaa or futaba set up there has to be something I'm doing wrong.

Hey guys. Just wanted to get some thoughts on this chassis. The single belt would be smooth, and the adjustable motor configuration looks cool. Do you think with the right mods it would make a good drifter? Let me hear your thoughts.

  Brushless Sensor Cable for YD2 Plus
Posted by: _YD2_Plus - 10-11-2016, 07:07 AM - Forum: Yokomo - Replies (7)

Hello guys

I have recently purschased the Yokomo YD2 Plus kit and got the Acuvance 10.5T Brushless motor and the racing performer Brushless Speed Controller Kit. I have not assembled the kit yet. However, I noticed that the Racing Performer ESC kit did not come with the sensor cable. 

I would like to know from the YD2 Plus owners about the suitable length required for the Brushless cable, and is there any preference for a specific brand for the cable as There are many in the market (Yokomo, MST, Acuvance,racing performer,...etc)

Will appreciate your input on the above guys

  Fxx-d s vs fxx-d s IFS differences
Posted by: Jkdrift - 10-09-2016, 07:54 AM - Forum: Max Speed Technology (MST) - Replies (2)

Hi All,

I have a fxx-D s chasis and I'm looking to possibly do some upgrades. As part of the upgrade I'm looking at brining this kit in line with the newer IFS.

Does anyone know the differences between the standard fxx/d s kit and the IFS version?

From what I can tell it's the following:

Updated Gyro - LSD2
IFS conversion kit - http://www.rcroller.com/mst-210464-fxx-d-s-ifs-conversion-kit.html

Other then the above are there any differences?

Appreciate the help.
