rearhubs and c-hubs including steering knuckles WOULD! basiclly fit BUT they are designed for the new car not the BD

steering knuckles/rear hubs require the new driveshafts along with new bearings and the new hexes

the wishbones will NOT! fit the car and there is no possibility to make them fit so save your money

so very high price for testing the bits

I personally always liked my car with standard suspension, hb4 front hub and sd-415s steering knuckles

report from the race this weekend will follow (OMG!) today lol

it's 02:26AM here and I'll go to bed now I think

Switching all suspension simply because it's hard to find parts for BD nowadays. I just dust off mine few weeks ago and first time out after a year not running the car and I won a race. I've been running schumacher for a while but I'm still a yokomo fan.

Yes I bought it because I couldn't find a 416WE I got it for 448 dolars from HK from a shop I walked in

Car is very fast bt I had unluck in the last weekends race. My SXX decided to burn on the bench with no reason. then a car landed in front of me after a crash and I had no place to run to and broke my rear shock after landing.

but the car was ballistic... I ll fix and setup then burn some asphalt and torture some tires with it...

yes The body it self is intact but the ball cup completely stripped all the threads and there is a nasty mark on the spring.

I havent yet disassembled the shock to see if there is any internal or physical damage to the shock itself

Having no spare parts my day was over

yes I just got the car and no spares was available. I got a shipment of parts, but really I have never had this kind of damage before so it was un expected... hence the lack of spares for this particular case..

At least I know the car is very fast...

Oh I hate the motor Bulk head... I use 48 pitch gears so it is impossible for me to adjust the gear mesh in a humanly fashion...

I installed the Losi lcd driveshafts in my BD 5 last weekend. These are supposed to be better for tight corners with a spool. I bought the kit form speedtech that was for a HB cylcone. Everything hooks up well except for the ends of the driveshaft where it goes in to the outdrives. I had to do a little grinding there. It seems to work pretty good but I really didn't seem to have any faster lap times though. A little more consistent though.

Also, Martin are you using the stock belts or white belts in your car?
