Ran my WR for the first time tonight. Very fast, predictable and smooth for sure but...I broke 4, c-hubs and 2 spool drive cups just tapping corner boards (carpet with CRC click track boards) . What are you all doing to prevent breaking these fragile composite parts?

roche just another company that design option parts for BD5. As for the different, Roche spool cup are made from spring steel material..

team bomber belt price can buy almost 2xroche belting...

if im not mistaken, team bomber belt cant last long with mod class...while roche belt is same material with trf and xray....which can last u quite long before break...

I think he just means that there are no more issues to deal with wrt the BD5 so there is no need for him to check out the thread to help you all out. Personally I think it would be a mad man who would walk away from a Yokomo sponsorship.

Im pretty sure Martin actually means he is moving away from Yokomo. It has been removed from his signature and his name has been removed off the facebook page.

Yes I left Yokomo.

I just felt that it was time for something new and I took an opportunity I was given so we will see what future brings.
