Hey Ant, thankyou for the advise matey. I will get my hands on some xray blades and see if they fit. I did here a few lads say that the xray blades are are tough as. Cheers mate

nothing special, i'm using only a normal camber gauge and droop gauge by yokomo, ride height tool by xenon and no station at all

Hi Ronald,

Congrates on your recent wins.

I ve question about shocks. Do you set up your shocks with rebound or zero rebound. If zero, do you drill a hole on the shock's top cap?

P/s: I want your basic outdoor set up too. PM to me the set up as well.

Thanks.

yeah, this outdoor setup as .jpg file is fine and I'm able to post it, normally I have .pdf files which seem to be too big to post on rctech.

Default BD5WR for sale

Just a shameless plug for a screaming deal on a new Yokomo with Tekin RS and a ton of new spare parts.

I just love watching Ron the lone wolf with his Yokomo beat the Tamiya boys.
