A few weeks ago I was looking for a chassis of this kind, I knocked on a lot of doors but there was no one that could make me one. Itís great to learn now that Yokomo will make it after that I made mine myself.

Like you can see I have the modified the chassis and I was able to used the battery strap of the SD.

Maybe it is a thicker chassis, it looks the same except for some slots at the nose of the chassis (less slots).

Default skid mount angle?

sorry for a stupid question, but can someone explain 'skid mount angle'?

-what part on the car is this?
-how is it adjusted?
-how does it affect handling?

thx-

THanks pops, was looking at the chasis of mymax which had a solid upperdeck was hoping there would be a "yok" mod to this as well. Im guessing less slots less flex = more steering?

pops - When will Yokomo US get the new BD chassis in? Let us know if you hear anything about the chassis and about it being used specifically for carpet racing.

Skid angle is the position of suspension arms relative to flat chassis : anti dive, level, pro dive

You adjust by adding or removing spacer below the hinge pins holder.

See the pics so you can get the idea.

You would think that yokomo would be smart enough to just make a 4+mm upper deck because making a thicker chassis just means that everything is 1+mm higher then it was. And after all, the LCG was MADE to have a low center of gravity, so why wouldn't the same thought process carry over?

If Yokomo was really serious about this chassis, they would/will graph out the plates so everything sits the same height off the surface as the 2.5mm chassis did. Corally has done this with their super thick carpet chassis's:

Now that's super cool. I think its better because the additional weight is still at the bottom (LCG) than thicker upper deck.
