we got our BDs two days ago over here in asia (pitshop will probably post a silly picture of me here holding up the boxes ... haha!). mine is all built, just have to slap on the electronics. all i can say to those who havent started on their own BDs is, take your time building it. enjoy the build coz this car is one fine piece of craftsmanship - fit and finish are exceptional. i like the slightly matte/powdery blue finish of the alum pieces.
it's the best yoke i've ever built, and i've gone through most of their TCs (except the SDW). oh and yes, it's mighty pretty too!
but more than that, the easy access to diffs, pulleys, etc and the tuning options will surely make this an awesome car to race with and also maintain. can't wait to run mine, but i'll have to wait til next weekend because thats the only free time i'll have.
another thing i noticed is the car is actually quite rigid despite the narrow upper deck. am not a carpet racer but comparing this with other rides i've had a chance to own, it's really quite stiff.... hopefully stiff enough to be a good carpet car out of the box.
go team yokomo!
