Performance wise the Xray carries more corner speed with a spool, with a one way and center 1way the yokomo performs alot better. Dual diff they are both sloppy.
The Xray is forgiving to set up error without losing much performance were as the BDM will reflect its performance due to set up or maintenance. The only other kit that I can think of that is so forgiving would be the HB Cyclone.
My yokomo seems to perform well with any tires without set up changes, were as the xray008 adjustment tends to be made depending on the shoes it wear.
Steering the Xray008/ has the BDM hands down
Acceleration....they very similar
Braking the Xray is very determined
The BDM is Smooth in its transition not as rough as the Xray008
Set up wise the Xray controls more adjustments and quicker.
Maintenance they both are easy to work on.
Quailty wise the are both equally the same.
Cost wise the Xray 008 is crazy priced @ $529USD and so is th BDM $469USD if you can find one state side, else where its a $500 kit to ship.
I did change my steering rack, to change the ackeman setting and steering throw.....the steering radius is tighter and quicker. The car has pick up corner speed and faster transition throw the apex.
