think the rear aluminium diff outdrives are probably tamiya ones. the front hubs look to me like hpi ones unless there prototype. caster blocks possibly old style yok mr4. might have to try double belt tensioner stop bit of belt vibration. the wishbones defenatly sd ones think the offset and that all the same as bd ones arent they?? probably lighter or bit more flex in them. plus looks like using sd rollbars 2

If you are allowed, use foams. Where are you racing and what are the tire rules? Rubber or Foams?

Hey guys, here is a better shot of Masami's BD at the Worlds. He has the best time and fastest lap.

not sure he can be using SD roll bars, i have an entire set and they dont fit on my BD. granted the ones he is using dont look same as BD ones either, perhaps special ones just for himself??

sorry if this has been asked before, but will a tamiya 415 spool fit in the BD?

Hi,

I don't think it'll fit.
The distance between the bulkheads is too close and I think the 415 has the pulley in the middle.
If you're looking for an alloy spool for the BD have a loot at the Team Bomber one. It comes with blades and should last you forever.

Cheers
Chris

The prototype rear hubs, front steering blocks and c-hubs are almost identical to HPI/HB
Those aren't special roll bars. I don't know which car they're from but the team have been using them for a long time, and not just the elite few. Look on the Yok Japan site, the report for the JMRCA stock nats, the FTD car (not Masami) also had these roll bars, as well as the rest of the Japanese squad. Also on that pic of Grainger's car that was posted on here so we could all see the R susp. mount and acekermann plate, shows these roll bars

I think you are right, they come from the HPI/HB Cyclone

They look like Rayspeed rollbars without the second bend in them.

I noticed on MASAMI's car I think that a associated C-hubs if I'm not mistaken he is using.
