I've just bought some SDW arms for my BD(haven't fitted them yet). Do I need to buy anything else or will they go straight on?

You will need to shave about a mm off the inside of the arms in order for the arms to clear the front bulkheades. I used a hinge pin and put both the standard arm and the Worlds arm on the same pin to figure out how much to remove with a dremel.

Looking for a good rubber tire carpet starting setup. The car will be ran on CS 27s. Any info would be killer!

Thanks, after a closer look at the arms that should work well.

Hi,

The article is about the 1/10 TC Worlds in Collegno, The author has discussed with M. Yokobori - Yokomo's boss.
Masami wanted really hard this TC title and prepared himself a lot.
It is a personal challenge for him as he would like to be the first pilot to be World Champ in any RC category.
He came with a full team to support him in this quest,
2 mecanics, one dedicated to the chassis, suspension and the other one to the transmission part only diff, motors.
Another Yokomo pilot dedicated to the batteries charge and discharge.
1 team manager.
Masami work is tires sanding and treatment, fingers + arms + full body stretching and meditation
Masami even came with a full box of glasses, all adapted to different luminosity
Mike Reedy was absent during this Worlds and no motor assistance was proposed to Masami, he asked then Team Orion for support who could not refuse.
In despite of this impressive armada, at the beginning of the first qualification leg Masami's motor was soldered with reverse polarity and Yokomo team have urgently turned the endbell to let Masami run but it results with a shorter wire that came unsoldered during the leg and Masami did not finish.

Text near pictures are about the new parts seen on Masami car, new steering arms,...
Last text block is about Masami race, Andy Moore and Masami finished the qualification with the same points but Andy was faster with 0.05 sec at one leg and had the TQ.
First final leg, Masami chased Andy tried to pass him inside but Andy slammed the door and Masami spinned, Marc who was around passed Masami and finsihed second in front of Masami.
Second leg, Masami forced and tried the impossible to pass Andy and was given a Stop&Go penalty, he then finished at the third place.
Third and last final, Masami at the middle of the race was 5-6 meters behind Andy showed his talents and came back on Andy who with wisdom let Masami passed him.
Masami finished Second at this Worlds event and has not filled this little gap in his prestigious palmares.

The wheel hexes used on the front are new prototype items, they are wider than std I believe and they are designed to reduce wheel wobble. I'm guessing that Masami ran them on the front only to widen the front track width and kill some steering and increase stability.

Hi,

no, it's exactly the opposite. They are narrower and you can adjust the track width with the spacers included.
And the new front suspension blocks are also available now.
Now we've only to wait for the new suspension parts...

Cheers
Chris

Thanks for clearing that up chris
Masami's do look fair wide in the pic so maybe his mechanic got carried away with the spacers?

Any news on weather they will be the same width (or thinner) specification as the SDW arms? Hopefully they will be more readily available than the SDW arms too
