My favourite rider since Wayne Rainey. Took it to the limit - 100% commitment every time. Unbelievably quick on cold tyres first lap. He was the only rider to master the not so competitive Ducati. Not even Rossi could do that.. and quit whilst being the best rider out there. Really, he is insanely talented. Legend.

Thank goodness we have Marquez to keep things interesting now :0

You guys didn't hear this from me....
Agree, I am Hardmans painter and run at the same track, the Yokomos look great, and the lap times he was throwing down with Mod and Jaco blues were unbelievable. The car had some hard hits and it held together no issues.

It's fun to watch Corey and Andrew interact in practice, they always try different stuff and it always seems to work.

Anyone here have some experience with the Yokomo Aerated Shock Caps? Heard you have to rebuild them after every run...

I am using the new hubs now, very happy with them

I'm searching for zero rebound on my shocks and I don't want to drill holes in my caps...

So it's OK to leave em alone for a race meet but better to rebuild after each run? Hmmm...

I seriously can't be @rsed rebuilding each run for a regular race meet, I'll save em for larger events...

Thx mate...

Hey guys thinking of picking up a BD7 to run on asphalt only. What spare parts should I get? Any after market parts you recommend for modified racing?

Also are these the correct HPI springs?

http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=2079

Should I also get a complete set of yokomo springs for asphalt or just stick to HPI springs?

Thanks!
