70% of the way of assembling mine.
I was excited to get the car, even after the money I paid to replace my original BD. Opening the box I was both intrigued and disappionted with various area of the car, and the amount of air that you get in the box must be something special, but I just let it out not knowing any different.
- the steering linkage system, but with too much slop - the suspension pins are now 3 mm about bloody time. - Clamping hubs - EXCELLENT carbon fibre parts and so on - Associated sway bar mount system and front hubs - micro adjustment shock towers front and rear
The not so good points
- Requirement of specially drilled spur gears for motor adjustment, Not so excited about the spring mounted diff carrier detent ball system, can't wait till someone looses a ball. Bloody oneways again - weak top deck again if you are caught in a big one (ouch) - TOO much slop in the steering rack (about 1 mm of shiming required and no shims)
I am amazed at the half copied tamiya 416 motor mount with a front brace to centre the load. Yokomo are not as clever as tamyia by not leaving a gap with a spcers under the front of the mount so you can choose to run it stiff or flexy.
I will give it its first run on Friday night and see how it performs on med grip small hard surface track.
