Yea I guess if we want to get all technical engineering gladiator then there is no such thing as deceleration is there, just a negative acceleration and the axle is constantly accelerating towards the centre of its own rotation. So suppose we could say the axles' acceleration is rapidly changing throughout its rotation.

Geeky engineer power! Like we aren't considered boring enough as it is

DB - yes a spool and solid axle are the same thing.

Just to clarify,

I'm using the BD-501SAA spool up front. Should it go to the back with one way assy up front?

I think that is what lots of drift guys run yea. To be honest we possibly aren't the best people to ask, the guys in a drift thread are gonna be able to help you a little better really. But like I said, I think that is what lots of them run, spool in the back with a one-way up front.

You should run some blades with that spool as well if you aren't already. An aluminium spool is gonna get really chewed up without them to protect it.

I drifted my bd5 with spool rear and gear diff front with around 1k oil. It pretty much came down to throttle control more than car setup, I ran a 5.5t which I think was too much. A 10.5t with normal software(no turbo), would be good enough. My car didn't chatter with the front gear diff.

Just seen this, don't know if its old news to you Yokomo fans or not.



Translation:

Yokomo has updated their BD5 Electric Touring and treats the BD5WX version of a cone differential, a high-Traction chassis, light weight spool forward and a revised steering. Other known features include carbon fiber chassis, aluminum transmission case, titanium rods and oil pressure shock-absorbers with aluminum housings.

Quick question, the balls studs on the BD5.

ZC-206SH
ZC-206MH
ZC-206LH

Is the difference the neck height of the ball? Or is it just the screw thread length? From the pics it looks like a bit of both...

Just had our last winter series carpet race, I ran the BD5 in super stock (boosted 13.5) and stock (17.5). Over the weekend I broke 9 (yes 9!) C-hubs, both carbon and plastic. I mean the car ran great when it was in one piece but, I only finished 2 qualys with it. I'm running: cut axles, Xray hard bumper and a Kydex cattle catcher.
It was a tough track with hard boards but, there's gotta be some way to bulletproof the fragile front end of this car... Any thoughts?

Take the hard bumper off, when you think about it, when you hit the force will go right through the car, instead of the bumper actually absorbing any of the force. I know the graphite c hubs can snap if you hit something at the right angle, but if you snapping plastic then something is wrong. Ive neved had to replace a set of plastics on the Yok, even at TITC when my car was traction rolling into steel barriers!
