cheers
If you pickup another car, say a 416 or t3 you'd notice those cars have way less flex than the bd5w. That may explain why.

Hi all;

Already test the BD5W and the difference with my other chassis ( a Mi4Lp) is incredible , has more stering, is faster and more stable, really a very good chassis.
Does anyone have news about the Gear Diff of Yokomo?
Or maybe they can adapt the TOP without too much problem.
Greetings

I got back into touring and drove my BD 5W this weekend at my local track (blue diamond in Delaware, USA). The car was awesome, I was using a Trinity Duo 10.5 and was easily was the fastest there. Many were running 4.5, 6.5's We didn't have a organized race since it had rained several times throughout the day.

I have the servo mounted on the two sided tape and even though this works well, I was concerned about it coming loose. Has anyone had any problems with the servo coming loose??

Just use the one servo mount, double sided underneath and a bit of shoo goo on the outer edge. This is what i do and have yet to have a problem with it And it can easily be removed if you want

about the springs i found the HPI works better in indoor/carpet races. On the asphalt i use the yokomo springs (basic start for me is always blue/pink)
Anyway after some test i solved my chronic understeer, yesterday my car was perfect; has been the second fast car as best lap but the best car as lap time during the finals when the grip is went down. Often 0,5/0,7s per lap respect to the media of the other cars. Incredible corner speed and agility into the tech part of the track.
