I've broken one right graphite and one normal plastic c-hub and didn't feel any difference in durability. The plastic one are cheaper of course...

I'm only racing stock with my bd5w and had some pretty bad crashes with some barriers or other cars and 2 c-hubs were the only parts that broke.
Usually I'm racing 1:8 nitro buggy in the summer and the bd5 is only my winter training car.
I thought these electric sedans are weaker but its holding up very good and all the spare parts i purchased will probably never be used. (Maybe if you race modified and you have some really bad ass crash you''ll need them...)

Thumbs up for the yokomo and its easy and awesome to drive

I know this has been asked before but...Are the body mounts the same on the old BD and the BD5? It'd be nice to drop a BD body right on the BD5.

As far as I recall they are not. They are larger diameter. They may still fit though.

Body goes straight on As fpart said though, you may need to enlarge the holes slighly depending on how big you did them to fit the BD. But same positions for sure

Default BD5 shocks

For people running the single O-ring setup on their shocks, are you shimming it somehow?

Will the BD5 steering knuckles fit the Xray C-hub and will the STEEL STEERING BUSHING (2+2)require shimming? Thanks in advance

Which ECS fits the BD5 50 or 52mm

I will need one of my friends to help me out around the knuckle question.

As for the ecs - either of them should fit. We found at snowbirds that adding 1mm of shim between the top spool and Mira outdrives yielded the best results.

Hanulec How did you do at the birds? If you are using he Yokomo knuckle with the xray C-hubs, you need to use the xray bottom cylinder and use the normal top cylinder if I remember correctly. You may have to grind the knuckles to get the steering throw. I am using the Xray knuckle so I can't be sure.
