Part numbers would be nice as well if you have them available.
there are no different blocks for the frontend but they are not necessary anyway
the front blocks are the way they are meant to be

for the rear there is 3.5 (kit), 3 (BD-301RR1) and 2.5 (Bd-301RR2) of rear toe-in available

we pretty much use 3.5 all the time

Question:

Are any parts from the previous BD compatable with the BD5, i.e suspension parts, or are they all new?

There isnt any support in the UK for Yokomo now as Martin will no, so wondering if i am able to get hold of parts easier by using the older bd suspension parts?

Steven

There are a few items that can be used(doesn't mean the are the exact same part)

They are:
Front One way
Rear diff
Aftermarket BD spools
center pulleys

springs

Default 2009 Ready Race of Champions

Congratulations to Ronald Volker for wining with the new BD5.

Put my BD5 through a serious race meeting on Sunday down here and all went well except for shattering a second front plastic bumper. This making me worry about the materials used as it might be a bit brittle, just as well that they are cheap. The damage was done without hitting anything hard.
I am wondering if there was a batch that escaped that were moulded of plastic a bit harder than the designed (still waiting on a reply from Yokomo as I have been the only one to report on it)
The car ran well all weekend and I am still learning to get a good base line setup for it in our local conditions, By the end of the finals I was happy with the lap times being able to shave 0.5 seconds off over the weekend and making the car easier to drive and with more minor changes to try.
We run LiPo batteries down here and have no problems fitting the packs on the chassis without a battery trays etc. Our weight is still at 1500 grams, so I have to load the car up with almost 200 grams of ballast around the battery. I will post a pic soon of the chassis with all installed.

I raced again this weekend and won with my BD-5 with the stock setup. The car seems to be good but I think the dampening is a little thick. I tried thinner oil losi 20wt and it was better. But I think I need to get some new rayspeed pistons. Does anyone know where I can get some 1.1 and 1.2 mm rayspeed pistons at?

The track was slippery since it was a night race and dew was on the track

Also, I would like to find out Volkers setup he race are RROC(Reedy)...Does anyone know that setup.
