Funny thing is, you can pay $420 for a 009 XRay from HK. But as you can see Yok is not really advertising over here. So maybe they don't care what the price is as long as they sell in Asia. Just order from RC Champ and get the good deal. We/you/us seem to be the only ones that care, so we have to deal with what we can get if we really want it. Sad but true (Metallica!)

Anyways, looks like a nice car, anyone got a real camera with good pics?

This car looks so much like 416. Yokomo even changed the suspension blocks to tamiya style.

fpart-can you tell us if those new C-hubs will fit on the older BD? Also let us know about the instant wear on the rear outdrives!

Nah, I think they look more like HPI suspension blocks.

The changed suspension mount design is simply down to the fact that the wishbones are shorter which requires wider mounts. If they'd stick with the old design the chassi plate would have to be bloody wide.

Regarding the wear on the diff outdtives

Use a proper joint grease and grease the cvd pin and the diff outdrive

Then wear will be minimal

Outdtives should be replaced as soon as you can see a groove

Default Setups

Martin. Do you have any good setups for the BD-5 on a smooth sweeping track with medium to low bite??
