I'll be tempted to get one as a wet car if the price is right.

If that price is right, I could see people buying the car to use as a perfect spare parts kit for the regular BD7. It has everything you need except the parts that hardly wear out or break(shocks, aluminum bulkheads/motor mount and center pulley).

Yeah but the aluminum is the expensive stuff. I would still upgrade the shocks to aluminum.

If the price is right I'm 100% getting one. Is it fully upgradable? I'll just get the good stuff little by little and have a BD7 to test against my T4. What s that thing above the rear diff? Looks ugly

Looks like composite shock tower mounts. It looks beefy to resist flexing.

From the top RC clamp. I checked it out on Redrc and its fully upgradable and comes with all the graphite parts. Only difference is composite bulks and plastic shocks (that can easily be changed), hopefully the price is right, if so I'm sure there will be a lot more Yoke's next carpet season. I'll be one of them

thanks.

So finally after about 4 months I pulled out the toys. It needs a little work but I got the car manageable. I hope to get a good setup going here fairly soon to share for med/low asphalt using sugar water. My back end was turning over on itself as I had it setup way too soft for the time being. I will be making some adjustments this week and going from there. It was just good to be able to go out and have some fun. Not a horrible weekend as I ended up winning my main.
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


I had to slow down way too much in the corners due the rear end kicking over.

Have fun with it. I will keep you updated once I get the car up to speed I will share my full setup. Until then if you have questions please feel free to ask.

Hey guys,

do you think that there's a new yokomo tc on its way?

I mean Ronald has been testing lower shock towers and shorter shocks on his car a couple of weeks ago at the ETS in Gran Canaria. Plus there aren't any pics of his or Prümper's chassis from Apeldoorn.

Regards,
David

I wouldn't say a new Yokomo per say but I would feel a BD7.1 or something of that nature. I know they were struggling with the lower shocks towers at first on asphalt. I am sure they have figured it out by now and I know that there are always goodies to come forth. I would say the norm now a days is once a year. They already started to release some other new goodies like the aeration shock caps.
