If you want to buy it buy it. Better to have it in your box than need it and dont have one. The best way to find out if you like how a solid axle feels is to do some laps with it and see if your time improve.

yeah its spool. i personally dont like spools but some people do. i use one but only for drifting. and thats only because it makes it easier to get the tires loose.

Hey MR-4TC SD guys. I`ve took a look at the MR-4TC BD Masami Special on the Yokomo site; and I like what I`ve seen.
Is the Shaft Drive kit just as good as the Masami Special BD? I know the MR-4TC SD Kit has been out for a while now; but I`m only into Shaft Drive Kits and there aren`t any more good ones out there for Me to buy.
-I have a Pro 4 Hara Edition and a TB Evo 5(I don`t want a Kyosho TF-5) and I`m thinking about getting a MR-4TC SD or a MR-4TC BD Masami Special.

Tell Me What`s Good.

Thanks

Take Care

i love mine. i the BD might be better for racing out of the box, but the sd has a ton of upgrades and mine runs with all the fast BD cars out there. if you like shaft drive kits then the ssg special or black special is the way to go. i love it.

I have both the lcg and a bd, thy are both awesome cars. I run the shaft drive in stock class and belt drive in 19turn. they work get on carpet with a thicker chassis. they were still competitive with the stock chassis

if you run stock or 19 turn then the LCG or SDW is a good consideration.
the yokomo shaft cars can be just as competitive as any car out there despite it's age. in the JMRCA all japan championship last year (when they raced 4 cell mod), a yokomo SDW managed to squeeze into the A main ahead of fast factory drivers such as Marc Rheinard and Andy Moore.
btw if anyone wants a NIB SDW, drop me a PM.

thx for the answers
I had both cars too. and both the BD and the my current car the LCG are great cars.
The only mod ive done to the LCG is the masami shock tower. to fit the tower on the lower bulkhead of the LCG you have to make the 2 lower holes of the shock tower a little longer.fits perfect. or if you wont do that the tower fits even with 2 upperscrews perfect.

Thanks for the info guys.

I`ve read that the MR-4TC SD needs Upgrade Parts? I don`t want to deal with any more Hop-Ups.....Tamiya KILLED(KILLS) Me with that.
-I understand; the MR-4TC SD is an older kit. It needs parts to catch-up.
I don`t want to deal with another R.C. Car Company and learn their Hop-Up language. . . . .I think I`ll get a MR-4TC BD.

Thanks

Hi @ GuyIsDamGood

the BD is a good choice. Have fun with it.
But, there are lot of hop up parts for the BD too .
Take the Masami Edition. You wont be disappointed.

There`s alot Hop-Ups for the Masami Special? I thought that kit was a complete kit?

I have a Tamiya TB Evo 5. Not many Hop-Ups were needed.
Here`s the list:
-Titanium Screws..................................$119.00
-Aluminum Servo Mounts........................$11.00
-Aluminum Shock Retainers.....................$17.00
-Aluminum Wheel Axles(2 pair).................$47.00
-(slightly better) Aluminum Rear Upright.....$51.00

Total: $245.00

If the Masami Special needs more Hop-Ups than My TB Evo 5; it`s a shame.

Thanks

if you get the SD SSG or black special, you wont need to upgrade. mine was great stock.

I think Masami was using a MR-4TC SD SSG during the 2004 IFMAR Worlds Races.....? I believe that kit didn`t need too many Hop-Ups.

But I want to get a Complete Kit this time(with no more than 1-2 Hop-Ups).

Thanks

like i said. i got the black special and took it out to race the day after i built it. it was great. kept up fine and didnt need much more than camber adjustments. a good motor and a pinion gear and it will be great.

the BDM includes

-Titanium Screws
-Aluminum Servo Mounts
-Aluminum Shock Retainers
-Aluminum Wheel Axles(2 pair)
- White belt and few other stuff.. check www.yokomousa.com

No Alum. rear up right or C-hub... the team suzuki rear hub will set u back $40 bucks.

The LCG has the same thing beside the Ti screws and few other things..
Not sure why you are paying that much for the ti screws...
but it should be around 50 bucks at most.
