I think having to tape the servo down and securing it with one post will be good enough now that the main chasis has no holes under the servo.....

The motor mounting hole imo is pretty good because it brings the motor close to center line and the rear can have even flex with the upper deck having equal mounting points.....

Can't wait to see this car in person...

Question: why do mounting screws in the center such a big deal? there are 6 big battery slots on one side and none on the other...

BD5 started selling in Japan today.

The sprur gear only require to remove 2 screws instead of the whole of upper deck. The car can fit 5000mah thick lipo with no sweat. Only drawback BD5 still using thin hinge pins like old BD.....

most of us only used one on the BDM because the one on the outer servo mount would just file down every time the car made a left turn.

I have just been notified that RC Champ has the BD5 in stock, though for the cost you would be better to wait for Steve to get them in the US.

Hello Everyone,

It is with deep regret that I am announcing this in conjunction with the release of the new car. Unfortunately we could not come to agreement with the terms for Yokomo America with Yokomo Japan Ltd., and thus unfortunately I have to announce my withdraw from this operation.

On a personal level, I have to apologize for not being able to pull this through for the Yokomo fans out there, and customers who have given me such high praises in taking up this effort, and have put their trust in me to make this a reality. For those of you that have pre-ordered the kit, unfortunately they will be canceled. Again my sincere apologies.

Out of respect for Yokomo Japan Ltd., I will not elaborate further on the details as to why this was not a possible venture on this public forum. Nothing short of 110% effort was put in by both parties to try and make this new entity a reality, but unfortunately the differences were greater than our efforts. I just happen to be not the right candidate they are looking for at the moment with what I bring to the table.

Sincerely

Steve Wang

WFT? Just over charge the public like Tamiya does and call it a day.(that should solve both sides differences more money)... This does not help with the yokomo image if a new car cannot come to Yok USA.
