the diff lasts just fine if you grease and regrease it often enough

Let us know what you think of the new bd5 when you get it running.
i received my bd5...now installing it...

i want to ask, if i running stock motor(11.5t) will it necessary to change the rear toe block to 2.0 or 2.5 ? as wat i know 3.5 will slow down d speed of the stock motor....

what antiwear grease u recommend? currently i only hv Tamiya AW grease....

Rear toe block is going to depend on the rest of your setup somewhat, and I am not sure what the BD5 will be best with. But I have been running 3.0 block with .5 degree hubs with 13.5 on my BDM and it seems very good.

I use Tamiya AW also and recomend it. I think Martin is using something else but I don't remember what, maybe he can remind us.

Hi Guys,

MaxConcept have come out a new hardened steel ball diff cup set for Yokomo MRTC-BD5.



Durable yet without losing the performance with affordable price. Especially for Mod racing.

PM me or send me an email at [email protected] if you are interested.

We shipped worldwide.

Cheers,
Elwyn

can anyone snap a hi-res photo of the rear end of this car for?

I'd like to see how far the CVD pin fits into the outdrive. Im thinking,
maybe one could file the aluminum outdrive and fit a CVD blade
without causing binding? or is the clearance to tight?

Hi fpart,

The weight difference between the hardened steel diff outdrives and the stock outdrives is about 10g.

Cheers

Thank Jimmymac, and thanks kschu. It looks like there is plenty of space to file the outdrive and retro fit an Xray CVD blade.

That team drivers car looks slick, Ti screws and Alum rear CVD's. All he needs are the alum suspension parts and the Team bomber belts!
