I think masami has just used one servo post and servo taped the servo down. On my old SD i just use to use servo tape and nothing else.

Hes running rubber modified so the brace must be for more flex. Dont know about the purple ball studs :s they are different ball ends so i guess they fit better. Another thing. Look how much room he has because of the low profile servo. You could fit 3 reciever packs in that thing!

hey guys im looking to get a new BD i run a LCG on carpet now! and its a rocket and hooks up well as i was reading a page back one guy said it was not good! i beg to differ i have a really stiff 3mm chassie and top deck on mine! if any of you would like i know a guy who makes them and it defanetly handles in the corners alot better! it transitions way smoother! and id stiffer then a T2 with bmi chassie! if you would like one feel free to pm he chargers $110 per chassie but if is high quality stuff.

But back to the main reason im on here! is im lloking to get another BD to run on carpet and was wondering if you think its worth it to go with the Masami ED or not? thanks for the input!

Default My Very Good guess

The purple ball studs are to go with the BX ball joints ,these have holes in top so you put a 2mm hex driver in to change shims with out getting the pliers out to twist the ball cups off & then use the yokomo box wrench which seemed to be the only wrench that fits the yokomo ball studs

i have square racing ballstuds with a 2mm socket in top, so mine are allready done
learnt that from the tamiya evo 4 i had
i run 48dp & about 84 or 85 is the biggest on spur

The BX ball studs have the 2mm hex drive in them!! so why is using a purple one, looks like another HPI part

How long are the BX ball studs compared the std BD ??? (i don`t know)

if they are a little longer then they are no good r/centre changes , but if the HPI ones are the same length thye it`a straigth swap over with out r/centre change


down below is a rubber/carpet setup (russel williams use`s ,very fast UK driver in 27t/19t proberly mod aswell)
Dan Hughe`s posted this up on Team Japan (Wahooooo!! site)

This is the std BD car ,no fancy chassis or anything
PS;;russ won the DMS 2 Dayer & CAME SECOND @ c/wars 2 dayer all with in a week or two of each other using the preglued v-tech 24r as controlled tyre

Onroad Dude. You're right, I should clarify that my LCG carpet / foam tire experiment was with the stock chassis. It was just dumba$$ of me to think that I could make it work with that much flex.

On the other hand, my BD took the TQ and win last night at our club with only the Yokomo hard chassis and bomber top plate. I can imagine how good this car will be with Local Racer's 3mm chassis.

the bx hex drive ball stud and the std yok ball stud are the same height, i have a bx and the cups are a "loose" fit, i use rpm cups on the high impact stress points to keep them from popping off. those purple ones are probably hpi and have a snug fit.
