I saw speedtech had all of it in and thus ordered it. Impressed with service and would recommend them to anyone.

When grip is poor, I have lose rear traction when exiting out of corner under full throttle. I use harder front to make it slight understeer even at full throttle ( Actually I should exit softer and not full throttle ).
we agree, i must have read your first post wrong, my bad. and understand your reason for the spring now also. thanks

I saw that on Masami BD he put the steering linkage under the ackerman plate and knuckles. Different with standard position. It looks similiar to LCG linkage position.
Is there any different on the car's driving characteristic for this tip?

I don't think it gives any handling difference but it helps to iron out bumps by giving a bit more travel and it helps to stop the steering linkages popping off in a crash.

Cheers Pops, moving the steering linkage under the bellcrank makes no difference at all. It just looks tidier.

wasn't there rumors shooting around a few months ago about a company making a 3mm chassis and upper deck for the BD? what ever happened to that?

I guess Masami doesn't like to see extreme up and down movement on turnbuckle when pressing the wheel upward.

Just do it will ya ...

Default Chassis

Anyone know if the new Yokomo BD chassis is available, if so where can I order it? I just chipped the front of my standard chassis, so i would prefer to order the new ine, for carpet running.

Thanks

The new yokomo chassis, is still 2.5mm With some added material that made it a little bit stiffer than the stock ones. and I think you can order direct from yokomo japan.

Yokomo said that it would be availabe here sometime in January. It is still 2.5mm. Because of the way it was produced it will be stiffer. My guess it that Speedtech will be the first to get them.

Hopefully they will release a thicker top deck out of the same material/process.

I'd love to see them make an octagonal weave pattern chassis. Super stiff, super thin, but super expensive.
