my guess is Yokomo USA product service. spare parts troubles. im sure most of us have been through it. hey, don't take my words as truth here. there could be more to matt's decision.

i've been thinking of switchin myself...HB Cyclone maybe? but that wouldn't be any better anyway...hahaha...unless HB starts an HB USA or something. XRay and RC America? but Im stuck on the BD simply because I dont have the funds to try to get another car, spare parts and all the hop ups, and of course that the BD is a damn good car for a hobbyist.


anyway. hey matt, good luck with the losi car. im sure you will do well.

61.5mm to 62mm should do it. Measure from the top of the shock cap to the bottom of the shock end.

Al, at some of our lovely bumpy tracks here in the UK you should probably use the longer shock ends and set the shocks to 64mm lenght. This allows around 6mm of ride height. How come the change from xray? Car was going well last time I saw it (torc rd12 @ stafford), and especially as you nearly decapitated me with it , I was marshalling under the rostrum and you hit that random curb next to the pitline, car took flight, whoossh! Take cover!

I know why he left but im not sure if Matt wants everyone to know so im not saying. Its no real big reason, and it wasnt to do with parts support.

ive told him how to fix it, but im curious to do if what ive said you people do aswell, as everyone that has a bd or sd that i have seen has different to the bd manual..... its the little spacer that goes inbetween the steering block and chub, the manual says put it below the block, but all that i have seen have the spacer above the block which lowers the wheel down over the wishbone making the car sit higher and be able to get your 5mm rideheight scho.

so do any of you run it as the manual says? or with the spacer above?
thanks

If you need more than 5mm ride height,

You could use SS Shock End.

You can use SSS Shock End but don't turn the piston shaft all the way down.

When we run the C block in the bottom hole I put the spacer above the steering hub. When we run the C block in the upper hole the spacer is run under the steering hub to get proper ride height. Never have any problem getting 5+mm of ride height anyway with 62mm shock length.
