Well Since the ECS has a wider joint in it the c hub has to be shaved to make clearance for where the joint goes through the C hub. The Xray C hubs have wider openings for the ECS to pass through and the top ones can be used with a little shaving. Someone at our track uses the Xray C hubs on the BD5 but I'm not sure what is involved in that.

Im sure someone on here has used the garbage Spec R Driveshafts and would have a solution to this problem because they would experience the same issue with those.

We used to run the Spec R Driveshafts in our TOP cars but they were so unreliable we wanted to make some way to make the Xray ECS's fit because they are rock solid. That is where the SPR Spool cups dervived from.

Yes I understand that....just want to know whats a TBD stand for and what it is actually....anyway anyone here know if the HB TCX's C-Hub can fit the BD5 arms? Coz I know my TCX has bigger C-Hub hole for use with its DCJ driveshafts.

P/S: I m still waiting for my BD5WR to arrive, hopefully this week

I think TBD means To Be Decided. Basically meaning we dont run BD5s so we arent exactly sure what works best for the guys that do.

This weekend we should be able to test fit the TOP spool + Side Piece outdrives + XRay ECS with a BD5 (and TC6) to better understand the C-hub situation. If someone can provide the width measurements on the Yokomo c-hub then we will ha e a better clue if there is enough clearance.

Hi,

it comes the 40,5

I got this car too and I wonder if you use the kit weights ( 20g central and 15g X2 front)?

How do you wedge the lipo battery?
because I would like to put off the 20g weight but it was useful to lock the battery.

regards,

Nico'

Our local BD-5 racers were not at the track this weekend, but when talking with a former runner of the car they confirmed that both the TOP Photon Spool, and XRay C-Hubs fit within the car.

I've update the Side Piece Racing web site with this information. Once I'm able to perform a placement I'll upload them online.

The XRay ECS and XRay C hubs are the only real way to make this work, You have to open the hole in the Yokomo C hub to make a Spec R ECS fit. By opening the hole and removing the material, it makes the Yokomo C hub weak. With the boards here in the US, the Yokomo C hubs will break.

39,5mm is the kit rear-wishbone and also what we always use

the outter hingepin is 2mm, Xray is 3mm, so you would need to drill up the hole to make the new hingepins fit, but the standard driveshafts are absolutely fine, as long as you take them apart the very first time before using them, cleaning them properly, heating them once and oil them with 2 drops of WD40
