Yes its weird a lot of the setups seem to differ to the CML site, it seems they have been adapted to work with the parts included with the kit. This includes the RS14 pistons, and the use of a gold front roll bar instead of silvers all round I suppose otherwise they wouldn't be able to advertise it how they do as the easiest way to compete at the nationals. Also, looking at pictures of chris and his car at the end of the snetterton you can clearly see roll bars, and on the setup sheet it says none were used I researched this because RS blues/HPI silvers(which he used) would have been way too soft without roll bars I reckon for such a high speed, high grip track. Oh well we'll see.

Default The BD MSAMI has landed!!!

Eight kits arrived at our hobby LHS (PITSHOP) and only one is left!
Some of the BD owners sold theirs at rock bottom prices and got the Masami! It has the signature of Masami Hirosaka, I think he personally signed it because some of the signatures are different.

aside from the revisions on the last picture, it has a 3mm chassis. and the one who packed my BDM made a mistake of placing extra team bomber belts!

It has different style of springs and a shorter shock body(looks like it).

I have not open the packaging inside but will do chassis prep this Holy Week! Sometimes things like this make you appreciate living in a third world country and being close to Japan and Korea (Much More).

Peace and Happy Racing!

but if using a one way, buy the tc3 out drives and no filing needed also must use the rayspeed/mip axle on the bone

Does it come with a spool? and how do the new drive shafts compare with the older ones? (do they still break?)

So, the masami doesnt come with white belts? Unless you've just got the standard BD instead of the Masami BD...
