One thing worth noting with the BDM (as compared to the BD) are the kit bearings. They both look the same on the outside, but that of the BDM's is a lot smoother.

. . . Haven't had the heart to tear off the metal seals yet though, so I really don't know why.

It's because the car comes with precision bearings throughout the car.

You're right about the use of precision bearings. Would you know what exactly in the construction makes these run smoother? Do they use carbide or ceramic balls?

I believe the precision bearing is Metal shielded which is a lot smoother and freeier than the standard rubber sealed bearing that we have on the standard BD. With rubber or teflon sealed bearing there is contact between the bearings and rubber sealed this causes friction hense restricting the movement of the bearings.

Thats why ceramic bearing uses metal shield instead of rubber or teflon.

Its not worth it. The gain from removing the shields wont be measurable, any minor gain you'll get wont last long if you still hit barriers..

Leave the shields in

Here in greece we separated the modified class into another 2 classes , World in which race the elit of the greek drivers and it is only 10 persons and national in which race the rest modified drivers!
So in World class we all are at the same level , so we don't hit each other very often and sometimes we don't hit each other at all!!
