I just did that with my new BDM, hit a gay parked at the end of the straight, driving Reedy Neo One 4 star, about 50mph, direct hit, car seams to be ok, but rotor on motor snapt in half.......
How do you know that universal is bend? Can you band it when you don't brake anithing on a car?

No pictures were allowed of the car. I can say there were a lot of prototype parts on the car, upper deck, arms, steering rack, suspension mounts etc... but trust me it was still a Yokomo BD, with some refinements by Easton.

steering rack? suspension mounts? What did Yokomo do, lock Easton in a room with a BD for a few days?

I hope it wasn't a carbon fibre steering rack. gosh I hated that thing...

I found that the stock ballcups had more slop then an unmodified rack, so I went with RPM ballcups.

It was not made of carbon fiber, it was aluminum and was very cool to say the least.

I like the new Yokomo ball cups for the BX offroad car much better. They snap on and hold just as well as the RPM, and look better too.

If Yokomo does not want to put it out....maybe Easton will have his own line of parts....lol I bet they would be popular after the weekend he just had!

I think Yokomo Japan & Masami are taking notes, see what Billy has found. World championship is only 1 month away, I think we will see a new version of BD after the worlds, BD"X"

Pops, was the aluminuim steering rack not the one RP make?

Kinda obvious Yok would be working on new parts pre-worlds, same thing happened 2 years ago!!!

Main thing Masami needs now after the great handling car, is some more horsepower! He got owned by Voelker with an LRP brushless down the straight at the Worlds Warm Up
