i like my fk04 and the quality, but when the day comes that i upgrade, i'd be interested to see what the difference is? i love the xray difs and have heaps of spares for it....
-are the yokomo diffs at the levels of quality of the xray's?
-and is the wider chassis of the BD compared to the fk05 an issue?
i have driven an FK05, but in fairness, the car wasn't mine and wasn't set-up to my driving, so maybe im a little bias, 'cause i felt that the BD cornered better, was more stable, and just downright looks damm good, right out of the box...
most x-ray owners i know boast about the fit, and quality of their kits, but in fairness, i think the BD has this covered, everything is serviceable with only a few screws to be removed, the blue anodizing looks great, no tweak issues, the arms are of heavy duty construction (no 1 has broken a BD arm yet in our track)
i'll give it to the FK's that maybe, they have a bit more tuning options (but nothing the BD couldn't do either), but with the BD, very mininal set-up change is required, this car is simply dialed on whatever track i play on.
Diffs... i never serviced an x-ray diff, so its hard to say, but as far as my diffs go, they're silky smooth.
no issue whatsoever with the widths of the chassis...
