I believe they are now the same as the Worlds, I haven't found anything better. The fit was not good on the prototype, had to remove coating above the threads for the hexs to fit, but other than that, they are great. Also need to check before each race day that the pin doesnt come loose in the CVD. Lock-tite and really tightening the set screw down, doesn't seem to stop that little pin from moving a little each race day. But, they are super strong. There is also an extra hole in the bell in case of wear, but after more than 7 months of racing no wear at all, have only one broken axle (major crash), and one slightly bend bone (hardly noticeable). Sheared the rear arm off twice bending the hinge pin into an L once, but the CVDs are still like new.

i have not had a pin problem for the last several race days now... get yourself either a #53 drill blank or drill and make your own pins from this they fit slightly better than the stock pins and do not break. the drill is easy to find at nearly any hardware store and you can get 2 pins out of the shank.

good luck

They've recently been updated as well and are even stronger. I've got a set of the latest shafts in my BD, took a big hit at the Bedrock national on Sunday and bent a Fastrax spool (For those not in the know the Fastrax spool is made out of nice, driveshaft snapping, steel)

Actually put a TiR spool in and it gave the car a bit more steering, 2nd leg of the A I had the 2nd fastest car on the track.

Stu, where do you get all your TiR parts from in the UK? I cant find anywhere that stocks TiR parts for the BD? I didnt even know that they did a spool for the BD.

Some part numbers and places to get these items would be appreciated

Sleighty, I get my stuff direct from TiR, I believe you can order direct from TiR, www.titaniumracing.com. The spool is the same for the BD and the SD.

Spool: TNM3530

TI2504RW - TiR Worlds Edition Yokomo SD Blue Rear Driveshafts pr

(Blatant cut and paste for the driveshaft part numbers, cheers other Stew )

Are any of you guys running the BD with foam tires on carpet? I've been running mine for about a month this way. It's pretty good , just looking to compare to anyone elses set up. Is there any Aluminum diff out drives available?

I have run the TIR Worlds drive shafts on both my BD and son's TC4s and can highly recommend them.

I run an RW Racing spool on the BD and have just ditched the alloy IRS spool on the TC4s and replaced them with the works lightened steel versions.

Never had any drive problems with either car.

Just wanted to say that my centre one way locked itself last night (?) as someone else mentioned earlier, oh well, at least it saves me paying a bomb to ship one over...

I have a few questions about the BD. Im new to touring but looking to get one for the indoor season. I think the BD looks awesome, How does it fair against the xray's and other comp. One more thing that concearns me is yokomo seems to come out with a new car every 6 months, I dont want to buy the BD and a month later something else comes out. Where is the cheapest place online to buy one, and get spares

I would not say that, after Yokomo released the SSG nothing was released for over a year untill the CGM which was basicly the same car. It is only recently that Yokomo have released a couple new cars to update there range.

And I would 100% recomend the BD, awsome car, no problems so far, no breakages, really easy to drive and really easy to setup.
