Looks like Yokomo has a new kit out that comes with the graphite arms and bladed diff. Sounds like a good deal. No need to buy all that stuff separate now for new buyers.

Outer hole on the rearhub make the car more stable / gives more rear end traction

no new shock bodies, maybe just a different batch

the kit bladder is just as hard as ys-8hd but gets bigger and softer as soon as it comes in contact with oil. This is why everyone is using the newer black one

You should ask the Top guys. I think they could answer best since they've run it like that since their car came out.

the idea of using top brace set in bd5 might be a good....since d brace can keep d weight low...

our rules here is 1500g with PT for stock class...so it's very messy to stick all d weight all around the chassis....

no when the car is rolling is touching before the chassis, anyway i'm thinking to put some shims like 1mm for security.
There is need only to pay attention to the "killers" that brake in late and they center you on the right side a my friend has broken the plastic support for that reason but this is not a system fault only a normal crash

EDIT: i have updated the reply with a foto pushing on one side the car, there is 1,1mm shims under the support for to keep it up. I'm sorry if the photo is not a real high quality

I use 9.5f/8.7r 90% of times as it just feels best balanced

for that I set 6.0/5.2 on the fine hudy gauges
Yes everything is clear, my doubts were because on the old BD people were talking about drops like 6 5 4 or sometimes 7...now looking on some setup there was write 11 10 etc. So i was a little bit confused while on a car people were using different systems for ceck the value
Anyway now is perfect and 0 chance to made a mistake.
Thank you again for the explanations

Martin,

Any advice on the shock end ball cap?

Because sometimes when someone crash from the back of my car the shock end ball cap will pop out or after a period of time of wear and tear the ball cap will pop out by itself when on the track.
