How does the servo mount on? It looks like the pics only has one servo holder on the inside...
i'm wondering the same thing.....hope that does't require shoe goo for the servo or double side tape.

with the BD you could do fdrs from 10.0 to 3.8 without changing spurgear!
so let's just hope it won't be a lot different with BD5

not sure bout the servo but double sided tape and one post to attach the servo is not too bad ...

It has some cool improvements, like the arms, c-hubs, steering knuckles, 1 piece top deck, toe blocks, sway bars, turnbuckles, etc.

However no blade system? Like is it that hard to put that on?

have to agree with this..

I can certainly see where Yokomo have got their inspiration from with this car... and it's from a lighter blue car . I'm not going to say it's a copy (it won't be), but the general chassis layout, in terms of steering system, bulkhead placements, top deck etc remind me hugely of it... then again, that ones very succesful, so it won't be a bad thing!

Suspension also reminds me in places of Yok's US liason, with the steering hubs and anti-roll bar mounts standing out on that front...

Still, knowing Yokomo, it'll go fast

Layout doesn't matter because Yokomo came out with this layout back in the 90's.

Im sorry but getting the spur gear out is still 2 minutes work. Even if you do have to take out umpteen screws. Its all done in a snap. They are all the same wrench size. So get yourself a small tray or magnet to hold the screws. It wouldnt stop me from buying this car. It wouldnt even slow me down.

But if you run 2 classes with 1 car, you must also change motor, pinion, spur, speedo settings, and prep tires again. Sometimes the club does not have enough time in between classes to change all that. Despite your argument, ease of changing the spur is a huge factor in my purchase.

Hi Guys,

Exploded diagram for the BD-5 (I hope the attachment works)

We are hoping to have parts and kits arrive at the same time, and we will be ordering the EU/USA spec kit which will include the front spool. Right now Yokomo Japan is shooting for March 31st, but conservatively I would say 1st week of April.

Our websites should be launching shortly in the next week or so. Thanks everyone for being so patient.

Sincerely,

Steve Wang

Well, it definitely looks to have the prototype "quick release" center pulley system. WOOT!! It just seems a little awkward, because the layshaft will have to be wrangled out as the top deck is still in the way as well as the bulkheads. I'll definitely have to see it in person.

The other thing I noticed is the motor mount screws are lined up horizontal like the Xray's. On the spur there is a access hole to adjust the motor

The only reason I can see this being done is so that there's equal twisting of the chassis from side to side. Just make sure to use some strong servo tape or shoe goo. But I would think that binding or twisting would be minimal at most even if two posts were used.

Naoto won the recent 1:12 Worlds with only servo tape holding the servo down.

It actually makes sense to me that Yokomo did this for equal flex down the center line of the chassis. You really only need one servo mount and servo tape. Looks like the holes are perfectly symmetrical on the chassis except for the one in front of the motor mount and it looks like that one may not even be needed.
