Yokomo has the whole line of parts for the SDW. plus alot of the "consumables" are direct replacements with all the MR4TC line.
I believe SDW's front suspension arm is different than others :
SD-008HW FRONT & REAR LOWER SUSPENSION ARM

As much as I'm very curious with BD, I think I'll stick with this sexiest shaft driven car for now
Oops, this is a BD thread

The SDW does use different front arms than the other SD's and BD. They are mounted more outward and the arms are shorter. Hopefully they wont be hard to find replacements for as time passes.

Randy,
How'd you finish at Reedy? Did you break or something on the front straight?

Car looked good.

Your mom is a big fan of yours.

I think I finished 8th in the B. I got taken out by the 2'nd place car going to pass me on the straight. I watched the footage that my dad took from the back of the straightaway, and he swerved over and hit me what looked to be on purpouse...

the arms look to be from a different mold than the current HD arms but they look to be the same length. the inner hinge pin hole is drilled closer to the outers and the suspension mount hinge-pin holes are pushed out so, net effect is that it pivots from a different spot but is the same width. they do provide the holes for the current suspension mounts to be bolted on....as soon as I can get the new lowered suspension mounts I'll swap it

as far as replacements for sdw arms......they're a b**** to find.
