I think that 48 pitch was more relevant in the early days of TC racing when most would run in parking lot unprepared tracks. Nowadays, even temporary tracks gets swept and sugared down.

Even if the tracks get swept down and blown on race days, don't your spurs get chewed up if you just want to go and practice/testing

this is going to sound really elitist, but for me just running around on a dirty track is a waste of time, especially if you are not going to learn anything about setup as to what the track is going to be on raceday.
For me I try to get to racedays as early as possible to get as much practice in once the track has been prepped before racing starts.

Even in the worst conditions, never had any issue with 64p gears

Belts & Pullies will get all kinds of junk in them on poorly prepped tracks

Curious to know if any of you are using these o rings instead of Yokomo blue o rings.

Hey guys, if you're interested in a car, let me know. Onroad is done for me, so I don't need the car anymore. Pm me if you have any questions.

Just recieved a BD7 2015 BS.

On our previous Xray, I cut the body post holes in the body a specific number of millimeters according to a Alexander Hagberg measure. He posted somewhere a mm measure from the edge of the front window to the center of the front body post holes. He had such a measure for all the bodies he used.

I can see on pictures of the top Yokomo drivers, that the body in general is mounted further back than on the Xrays. The body I focus on is the LTC-R running modified.

I know it is very individual, but does anyone have a "general" measure of where they cut their body post holes, or know the measures used by some of the top Yokomo drivers.

Please don't reply that it is stupid to copy others setup etc., I know, but we have had great succes copying setups from the top drivers and then work on from there. And the BD7 is new to us, so we need a good starting point.

Most setups I've seen seem to be around 5mm forward for the LTC-R - if the offset ist mentioned at all.

I'm looking to put my yok 15 on a diet... It's currently 1425 with a orca vx3, r1 works, intellect pack, futaba 551, and Airtronics reciever.

Where can I start? All the screw kits seem to be out of stock.

Ti turnbuckles
Alloy rear bones and front stabilizer rods.
Remove steering bridge.

Theirs also titanium ball studs and the screws as you mentioned.

Mine is 1388 gr. Muchmore Fleta Pro esc, Muchmore ZX motor, Highest servo, Muchmore 6000 mah lipo, wires shortened as much as possible, LTC-R LW. Sorex 36 tires.

Guess titanium screws, turnbuckles and pins will get me close to the 1350 gr.

On my previous car (Xray) going from the stock metal screws to titanium would save about 25 gr.

Hi guys, ever so often I freshen up the diff oil.
And when I do this I like to replace o rings and the gaskets
Is there a cheaper alternative for the gaskets, as the yokomo ones only come one in a packet, and it becomes expensive
