They are getting parts very quickly now, they even have the new Masami BD in stock. You can check out the parts list and look for New Released items.

Hi Everyone,

Just got myself a BD after running the Pro 4 for te last 2 years. It was as standard with a one-way diff and one-way pulley. Must admit it took me a couple of races to get used to no brakes. Anyway, Last night was the first time I ran it and I was really happy with it apart from 1 thing, the servo horn. It seemed that everytime it tapped a barrier or another car the steering went way out of line. Found this was down to the servo horn moving on the servo. I have 3 horns and 2 of them are shot. Has anyone else had this problem on their car? If I can't sort it I will put the one from the HPI on as I never had a problem with that.

Regards
Paul

Default Yok stiff chassis

Hey guys,
getting ready to put on a Yokomo stiff chassis (BD-002GH)
is anyone using it? pros and cons over standard chassis
Any setup changes that will probably need to be made from the regular Yok chassis setup?

Thanks

I looked around here but most carpet Yoks are running some sort of custom chassis.

Why????? lol

It will just smash surely..? no?

Also, pwracing, are you deffinately using the correct type of horn for your servo? the three that come with the kit of for three makes of servo. I am running a 2343 and have never had one slip. Ive had a few break though. Only in big hits.
