anyone has an idea which other diff blades would fit on to the bd5 for both gear diff and ball diff usage?? i find the yokomo ones wear out to fast.

also any ideas on how to use blades in front with the steel spool cups??

cheers

When I replaced the yokomo ones with something more durable, the outdrives started wearing out. So I thought it was cheaper to replace the boneblades.

Spec-R make blades

Just finished building a WX for a friend, dont know why but this car feels and looks so much better than the previous models in the previous BD5 range (we have owned them all) The ballcups are simply AWESOME Might put some on my HB they are that good

+1 on this.

I've ordered quite a number of Yokomo blades and the price still does not match the price for a new outdrives. But then again, the blades might fall off during the 5 mins run and might scarred the outdrives too. So the problem is unavoidable.

I have SpecR and Team Bomber blades, but haven't tried them yet.

I use Spec-R blades, too, i run in mod, a friend give me 2 for test in last ETS, and worked very good, no problem in all weekend with it.

I find another solution for spool, with plastic outdrives, i put a alu reinforcement, and worked very well, exted the live of outdrives 4 times, work with Litemod cvs cardans, because the pin are small, for original yokomo cardans need to cut a litle the pins, for not blocking free movement.
Attached are a photo, i take with phone now.

Greetings, Luis C.

Hi guys,
Running my WX at the local track and eventually small bit of the carbon from the chassis broke due to hard impact. However, there is no crack on the chassis. Is it ok or will it has an effect on the stiffness of the chassis? Sorry if the question has been asked before in other threads.

I used these on my BD5 for racing and Mr4TC for drifting. The outdrives are very heavy duty and withstood thousands of e-brake pulls with no signs of breakage.

You'll be right, just put some ca to stop it from delaminating.
