I run the Yokomo thin hexes on my BD with the bd5 front and rear end hubs and driveshafts. They are 4.2mm wide.

http://www.driftspeed.com/index.php?...oducts_id=2264

Team Suzuki 4mm hub. (I dont know what they really are. I haven't measured them)

Doesn't look like they clamp.

Any questions about Yokomo parts, placing orders, please feel free to contact:

Maybe you guys can help me out here...My BD5WR feels strange to me on the track (carpet) compared to my old BD and TC6. Tough to explain but, the car feels like it floats a little and is less direct feeling than my other cars. I've tried numerous different setups but result's the same.

I'm not a newbie to TC, I can usually get a chassis setup to where I like it but, right now I'm not real comfortable with the BD5. Any ideas?

i would think WR lowerdeck is too flex for carpet....would suggest u to try W lowerdeck on high traction track like carpet or sugar treatment asphalt track..

I am running the W chassis on carpet. Saving the flexy one for low grip asphalt.

What about longer wheel base?

The car feels lazy, good amount of steering and rear grip, just feels disconnected. Maybe it's a characteristic of this design, IDK.

I'll post my setup when I have a moment.

Hi ,

Why do almost everybody that I looked the set up use the Mazda Speed 6 as body?

BD5 is better with mazda speed 6 than LTCR or R9 ?

regards,

Nico'

What i found is that Mazda 6 Speed is more "neutral" as bodyshell, LTCR is imilar but more aggressive into the corners, feeling is to have a car with more steering.
I tryed also the R9 but i don't like it, too much aggressive and my feeling is (on our tracks) car is not stable

May be i'm wrong but i hope this can help you a little bit

thanks altreyx I have the same feeling about these bodies, I find Mazda too neutral and not as mush aggressive and as my BD5 oversteers a little bit I think LTCR suit it better.

But I wonder to find almost only Mazda speed 6 in the set up sheets I look at http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/yoko...YokomoBD5.html

Most of the times yes is the Mazda the first choose, but for example at the Worlds, if i'm right, all the drivers were using the LTCR.
Same for some other race.
At the end we drive something only by "feeling & sensation" so we should find which is the best choose for us. May be a choice seems a "must to use" but in real doesn't mean that is working for everyone
There is need only to try.
