according to that Jap parts list, the same one-way is being used from the older models, so yes it should fit.

there won't be battery slot inlays and I think they are not necessary anyway

filing the slots is not too much work as due to the form of the cut-outs only a small part of the cf needs to be filed

you really don't want to use the old BD diff!

the new BD5 diff will have bigger diffplates to be able to transfer the increased torque modern bl motors deliver

sanding diffplates (1200 - 2000 grit sandpaper on a glas plate) is now even more crucial than it has been before but then you get a awesome operating diff and it will last at least a little longer than the bd diff

I cannot comment on wether the car got blades or not but even if there are no blades it really ain't a problem
running the diff joints without grease then is total overkill ofcourse but properly greased (muchmore joint-grease is best I found btw) it works fine

The japanese kits will be sold with a one-way unit, the kits for europe (germany) will be sold with a spool/solid axle

I don't know how the US kits will be sold ... I think Steve should comment that

Will the BD5 rear diff fit the BD? I need to get something beefier in mine for brushless, so wonder if I should wait and get a BD5 one or not.

We are not here to comment on batterytape quality

regarding the diff, seems like you need to wait

fpart,

I will actually try and find out if they are working on a US/European version where a spool is included in the front instead of the one-way.

I'm currently with the Yokomo Japan team at the Cactus 2009 off-road race right now. Internet access is non-exist at the track and at crawling speed in the hotel room We'll probably have some discussion about this tonight back at the hotel room.

Steve

Wut up Rod! Did not see ya at the race last weekend in Rock Hill. You retired too? You getting a Yok? Oh and yes... poopoo.

Well if there is an Asian version and a EU version, I hope we get the EU. I wonder, if the Asian version will also have a center oneway. If so, I'd be in the same boat as when the BD first came out.
