Any word about the new SDW upgrade conversion for the SD?????
I heard right behind the BD so I just thought Maybe someone might have heard something....HINT HINT Matt or Steve...????
Also if I can not wield the new BD as well as my SD I might just convert the SD to the SDW and run the BD for the Mod and 19T classes. Right now I wield the SD pretty well in Stock. SO I will have to at least try the conversion.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

And they say Yokomo doesn't come up with their own Ideas...
It looks like the first ever one way shaft ever. Guess they do have their own ideas. I bet I will have one in my SD when it comes out. That would definantly help my steering...Sheesh I bet Tamiya and HPI are going to rush to get one out ASAP...

while it probably will have a little "slider" action, it actually is a shaft one way.

What benefits could be reaped from a one-way shaft? I've seen the one made for the TC3, but then, I never picked one up because I did not know what it would do for a car. Please, any one who has used one please post up.

driveline/train oneway;
-deceleration of front universals / drivetrain and drag issue; with the rear diff/universals. rear diff/drivetrain has less drag and the front decelerate seperatly from the drivetrain and univerals.


do the math! (my new saying), b-main = motocross start!!!

I used a shaft 1-way on my first TB Evolution back in 2001. It looked similar to this new Yokomo one and was made by Cross Racing. I wasn't really sure if it did anything because most shaft cars already have free drivetrains. I still have the one-way... and I'm sure it'll fit the other TB cars up to III. Hmmm... time to experiment... If it works... I'll probably end up getting them for my Yokomos.

I think the main idea is to combine the front spool with this center oneway to have better cornering speed.

Doesnt that defeat the purpose? I thought the main point of the spool was the ability to break.
