WR version and WX have the same price, and WR comes with two chassis plates and ball and gear diff? Why they two have the same price?

Hi,

someone can tell me a good starting setup for BD5, very open track - Stock motor (13.5_fix timing)?

maybe somewhere on the web, like PETIT RC ones.

thanks

I have the chance to pick up a new bd5 kit at a good price, but umming and eering whether I should pick up a WX instead. I race outdoor asphalt.

Does the standard bd5 come with a chassis that is good for indoor or outdoor? I'm assuming it's an indoor chassis as the new models come with a 2nd chassis for asphalt.

The 'Limited Edition' comes with graphite parts. Will I be able to tell the difference between bd5 standard parts and the LE parts?

Is the WR/WX, and even the 'worlds spec' that much better than the bd5, bd5LE?

Default Pro and cons?

Can anybody tell me the pros and cons between using ball head caps for the suspensions as found in the yokomo WX with the standard shock cap ball type that uses screws to hold the suspension(found / use in Yokomo drift package SD)? I know that using the ball head caps are more prone to detach during collisions...Any pros and cons?

Im sorry to hear this, but green-pink are harder, not softer.
I read a lot of times about Front pivot blocks 42.0 mm, roll more, i use it in some tracks and work best from 43.5 mm, but the front is more nervous.

teamsanwa, to increase steering try this:
1. Camber -1.5deg at rear.
2. Ride height 5.5mm at rear
3. Rear toe-in 2.5deg
4. Front pivot blocks FR42.0 + FF42.0
5. Double joint driveshafts at front

Try it step by step, not all at ones. =)
I hope this will help.
