Thank you for reply. I asked to Team yokomo engeenier. They said it is possible to use with some modify ( widen two mounting holes in the chassis)

I already have the DCJ + servo mount on order but I was advised to also get the black shock bladders and blue shock seals... that's a bit cryptic for me, and as per my memories of the brand, the part refs are a pain to navigate through. Anyone has part numbers they could kindly share?
are we talking these?
seals: http://www.amain.com/yokomo-high-gra...blue-8/p242398
diaphragms: http://www.amain.com/yokomo-fluorine...-set-4/p242399

Additionnally - I'm old school and 48DP does it very well for me... anyone can recommend widely available (read: amain... or tower. I'm overseas) spurs that fit the Bd7 without coutersinking/redrilling/customization while still running tue? No japanese exotica please...

One more Q: why isn't the fancy rollbar mounting system used in the rear, but just the front?

Thanks in advance folks!

Paul

EDIT: looks like the P3's are the right ones!
EDIT2: yay - ditto for the black bladders
Search for Panaracer spurs these fit perfectly
they are not that exotic..

Wouldn't say it sucks... It's adequate, but there are some much better choices on the market.

If anything, the Futaba 9551 has been the servo of choice for 1/10 TC. That being said, since we're talking about Yokomo TCs, I would like to throw in the Sanwa SRG-BLS for consideration.

I have only ever had bad experiences with the Savox in the yokomo, which I think all comes down to using the metal servo horn without a servo saver,
I just didn't like the feel. The S9551's are just so much stronger as well.

So just ordered the short arm kits as well, will be interesting to see how these go.

Agree with evochick.

Futaba S9551, S9550 and I would add KO PDS2413 are excellent servos for TC.

Savox whilst a little cheaper and good specs on paper but just didn't feel as good to me.

Since we're talking servos, sanwa ERS-971 digital coreless, price is around 60-80 around the web and it's also waterproof. I bought one to replace a hirosaka that felt like crap.

Futaba S9551 and family does the heavy lifting around here as well, and it's a good choice for the price, but if you want something that won't flinch I guess there are some brilliant JR servos with monstruous torque and similar speed. These are heavy full sized servos with lots of substantial metal, but these days the cars are so light they aren't a liability anymore. On the contrary, they help better balance the car.
