Ackerman can be achieved in a number of ways. Yoke and X Ray go about it differently. That's all.

Has anyone tried using longer steering arms ?

Guys..a question..I put a spool and locked center gear in my BD,car ran well BUT I kept breaking front cvds,most times it would break the pin holding the cvd together.Two other guys at my club had the same problem.It happened sometimes even when you did not hit anything...just hard on the power out of a corner.I tried a pair of the hardened steel uni joints(but didnot file the ends down)but I broke one and bent the other.I finally had enough and put a diff in the front and have not had a problem since,but I would like to use the spool....any ideas how to overcome the breakages?(sick of being called BROKAMO again!!!!!!!!!)

Mine was one of the first batch of BDs in Europe, so it's a few months old.

I constantly run 7 and 8 turn motors with spool and locked centre pulley,and have never had a problem.

I use TIR Worlds CVD assemblies and there is very little wear in them.

What spool and drive shafts are you using ?

I haven't broken a part on my BD, but I run solid centre and front ball diff. Seems to be a problem with running a spool. Breaking a servo horn or servo could happen in any car with the right sort of hit. The BD is definately the best car Yokomo have made and I've had pretty much every one. Mine has taken a few hits when lapping traffic or clipping a corner a fraction to tight, strong as!!!

yep hit the nail on the HEAD dont HIT anything

yes my skills are not the best but after only a year i am getting better and starting to do faster laps but still lose it sometimes and thats when i break something, i have had some mean crashes in all cars i have owned over the past year and are very grateful to yokomo and how well there cars and parts are made

still though if there is a part out there that will give me a bit of give when i make a mistake then i would like to get it so i can last more than a couple of races

cheers for any suggestions and any help

Sorry, was being a smart arse

Going slower can be faster as you are more consistent, thats what I work on and with consistency comes speed, eventually you can push the car really hard and still achieve that consistency. I've worked on my consistency this year and I think its really starting to show.

Keep it up Jason, enthusiasm is infectous

you guys that have been racing for a few years are the people i watch and look at and up to on how to race and how to get faster

without the better drivers out there to lap me i would have nothing to strive for and no reason to get faster

cheers

I've never ran a Servo saver on a tourer. I just swapped out the Yokomo servo horn as it had some slop in it. I used the alloy Hitec one that came with my servo and it is heaps better.

How exactly did you break one? I took a hit at Hamilton and had to drive half a race with the servo horn that jumped a tooth, still won the race thou. Generally the Yokomo servo horn will jump teeth if any force is put on them.
