exactly!
this is what i ment!!
i m sure u will be fine!

How would this car compare to a 417? I'm looking for a second mod car to run this summer. Always been a huge fan of Yokomo and that high traction chassis looks hot. I run a 416x and i just bought a 417.

Leaning very heavily towards the BD5, when ordering spares should I get the plastic or LW Suspension parts?

Hi guys,

Just got my BD5 and finished assembling it. Excuse my BD5-noob question but I'd like to know how to secure my battery. It's a common stick type and doesn't fit the holes at all. Will the 3 racing battery holder fit? Also, is it safe to (quick dry) glue plastic pieces on caron fiber to DIY a battery holder?

as i m using flat batteries.
solutions i used are two:

-i glued a small square of carbon under the batteries so that it will fit the hole
-if you don't want to glue it u can use the tape not only in the front-to-back direction but also in the left-to-right direction because as you can see the chassis has 4 holes for the tape.
this is how i tape:

Hi,

it's how Jackdani explained me how to tape, it's a way I will use next time.
when you go out from the hole with the letf to right tape, go a little bit inside , put the battery on the tape and then finish taping it.

Jackdani, Allright of course, I'll will make picture and exchange with you, thanks a lot.

I switched to the plastic parts from the LW parts and haven't broken as many C hubs and steering knuckles. Arms I use the LW ones and haven't broken any in half a year racing a mix of 17.5t/10.5t/Mod.

cool, i cant find it in italy!
can you tell me the difference with the normal 2 points holder and why it is better, Nico!?
maybe because it is simply to regulate the bar?

tnx

Hi,

first I think that the original mounting is a little bit boring and then with this aluminium part the mounting is very easy and sure to be well done.

And this part is beautiful too ;-)

aluminium sway bar holder make mouting and sway bar adjustment more easier....

but if u hit hard or other car hit u from behind, it'll bend the holder..

Roche released new Belting for Yokomo BD5...Low friction...most suitable for stock class racing as it's less dragging and gv little more rolling speed to the car in Off Throttle.....
