I checked with a friend the other night and we concluded that the Tir driveshafts for Yokomo and HB are identical, someone else might know more but this is what we concluded from various measurements. He also tells me that the HB team ran MIP driveshafts at the Worlds (after a discussion with the current WC) yet whether they were Yokomo versions or not he wouldn't say. My HPI parts are on the way so I will let you know in the next few days if they fit.

Although I dont run the BD now.....I had been running the HPI c-hubs on mine for quite awhile. As said before drill out the arm to 2.5mm for the hinge pin and you will have to shave a little material off the arm to get full movement of the c-hub. I used the original Yokomo dog bones with axles from the R3 Barracuda(rear). If you use the Pro 4 axle you will need to use either the original dogbone(HB) and make the slot for the drive pins bigger on the spool or diff or use dog bones from the 415(42mm) with no mod to the spool/diff/oneway. Never tried it with the oneway but I am sure I used the drive cups from the Pro 4 in the Yok oneway.

This is by memory so check dogbone lengths before you buy any.

Yokomo drivesfafts use 2mm pin(same as tamiya) on diff/oneway outdrive, while HPI/HB use 2.4mm pin(same as Asso).

Someone mentioned before that the new parts on Masami's car were not HPI, but actually Yokomo prototype parts.

Nothing wrong with Yokomo parts, in my opinion (except the Yokomo/Xenon spur, but thats a different story )

I know this has been posted before, but I had a look and couldn't find the answer. So what are the part numbers of all the hard wear I need to build a front diff for the car? Thanks.

Default BX Ball Cups & Ball Studs

I've just gone through the BX exploded diagram to find the BX parts needed to change all the ballstuds & ballcups on my BD's & LCG, and come up with these part numbers:

Long ball studs: ZC-206HL
Med ball studs: ZC-206HM
Ball Cups : ZC-207HD

Is that all that is needed? Will they work with my standard BD Ti turnbuckles or will I need to purchase shorted turnbuckes also? Are the long or medium ballstuds preffered? At a guess, the long would be needed for the ackerman plate, and the med will suffice for the rest of the car.

vortex:
if your going to conevert, dont forget # bx-414kb, ( kingpin) you will have to grind away about 2mm off of the sleve and at leat 1.5 mill off of the kingpin, other wase the threads will hit the drive axel, unless however you are planning on running the steering knuckle in the low position, then thre will be no need shorten the kinpin, ( i would still grind the sleve and us the kingpin coller ( part # sd-414c) what is really nice about using the off road kingpin is you have more threads in the steering knuckle, which in turn prevents the kingpin stripping out in the steering knuckle.

The set of ballcups only come with 2 short and the rest are long. You will have to cut the length of the ball cups in order for them to work.

You will also need ZC-206SH short ball studs.

yes Pop's is correct, you will need to trim the ball cups, there is a little circle on the under side of the ball cut ( aka ejector pin, from the mold) just cut the ball cup in the middle of the circle with a Brand new Exacto blade.

in addition, if you have not yet changed it, i would highly recomed picing up the light weight king pin set Part# sd-414ta.( once again more threads less change of stripping out )
