but what' s wrong? I can only pick up the item at the store...

For people in the same case as me, it's simple, just contact the shop and ask how to do, they answer very quickly and explain it simply, thanks;-)

hi every one,
i m getting my db5wr in few hours, and now i m starting regreting a little bit, i need some kind of support, did i choose well?
is the car as good as many people say?
(for sure is beautiful)
there is something that i need to know that will disapoint me, like it is fragile?
and by that i dont mean more delicate because of the grafite as i allready know that, but i dont crash to much.
i mean in long-period using...

thanks a loto to everyone!!

the wr chassis is little fragile as it's have many holes...if u dont crash hard, u wont have any problem...

i dont have any problem with yokomo bd5 -bd5e-bd5w-bd5wr....u need to stock some c-hub and knuckle...front spool cup, u need to change to steel.

other parts seem holding quite well on crashing...

does alluminium c works better that plastic no carbon?

i mean for sure they are stronger but in cas of crash they will break more things...is more convenient to break only the c...

what do you think?

btw in the edition i m getting we have both chassis holed and not and 2 kinds of diff!
so i think is a good deal!

I have also noticed the front knuckle can strip easily with the plastic part, I haven't tried the graphite front knuckle. The bottom kingpin screw comes loose and falls out.

I now carry extra bottom kingpin screws and am thinking of getting the Yokomo alloy front knuckles.

I like the way the BD5WR chassis works and find I have faster corner speed.
