Unhappy

What I mean is that the Masami edition has a lot of new parts on it. I really believe that the stock BD setup needs to be changed for the BDM. That is what Im looking for. A good starting setup for the BDM not the BD. I'd rather not start from scratch or the stock BD one. Sorry for the confusion

Just start with the std setup it won't be far off, but what surface(s) are you planning on racing on as some bits may need tweaking?

As i can understand they only use them at the back , at front instead of stock use the same axles with aluminum bones!!

I don't think so.
Has the masami ed. chassis got the outer servo post removed and the lumpy bit? ( or whatever its called!) Just wondering if it is, what do the instrcutions suggest you secure the servo with? I doubt it says ShooGoo

Yes there is a diference.
Look: http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...hmentid=132702


tony q / Zacharopoulos: yes, people here are replacing the front with the Stainless steel ones as posted in the last page. They are far more stronger!

i think its the steering posts are different so the belt doesnt rub on it like it does on the old versions of them.

The only difference is that they have spacers under the bellcranks to clear the belt. Normal BDs now come with these aswell.
The Masami version still has the bump for the servo posts.

I flipped the steering bellcrank tower and use 3x12mm screw at the bottom to make the tower solid ( not easy to bent ). Mine is first BD generation.

ONLY If you are very clean person ( always clean car after race ), I guess is okay.

The life probably shortened too.
