Default BDM

I wheeled the LCG and BD and BDM
the BDM is the better of value of the 3.
the Yok hopups are really not needed...mostly bling parts..or universal...etc..
I haven't done anything to my BDM other than get a set of aluminum steering knuckles..but i do that for all the cars I've wheeled.
same thing on the LCG.
You don't need to get rear uprights..the standard material work great....

Keep in mind the LCG has a lot of flex....so factor in what you will be using to car for and what type of running.

YOKs are the bomb

Default Suzuki

the suzuki are virtually impossible to get.
I got mine about a year ago....
but I do believe there a few vendors in the UK and Germany who might have a few in stock...
I remember the distributor for Demon chassis in the UK had a few in available..can't remember the name distributor...

but there are few other companies..Hong Kong based making aluminum knuckles...SpeedRacing...and Yeah racing on ebay. not as good as the Suzukis of course.

Hi, do you know which of the 2 is fun to use for drift and at the same time very competetive on the racing tracks? im considering to buy one from yoko that can handle both. Thanks....

i dont own all. but i own the black and it is extreemly competitive. i can drift on rubber tires. and it drifts faster than nitros do. ssg with a novak 4.5 or 3.5. or the vector 4.5 or reedy 4 star. amazingly fast. and drifts great

Captain,
I'm not a drifter..so I would be given ya bad info if I tried to answer.
there is a drift thread on here somewhere.

It does seem most drifters are mostly using shaft type cars.

either car are good for drifting since I tried both...
But I personally prefer the CGM as the chassis is a lot stiffer and weights more then the double deck version. more weight = more weight transfer. plus SD has the sealed gear box... no worry about small rocks stuck in your tranny.

if you still having problem with CVD pin popping out to one side.
Here is another solution other then tightening that b!tching grub screw down.
~ heat shrink wrap ~
