The Rayspeed 3*1,2mm who are in the BD Masami Spec kit.

I use the Yoki pistons stock. If I'm right they have 0,8mm, but I ordere those rayspeed pistons without holes in them, so I can drill some myself.

I'm not saying the rayspeedpistons aren't good, but the holes of those I have are definately to big.

@ Martin
in the uk drilling out to 1.1mm or putting rayspeed blacks in is really normal for the UK tracks
even indoors rubber/carpet is well used
different tracks, different drivers,different driving styles

every one is right

In germany everybody uses the stock pistons, either mit 450wt Yokioil and stock holes or holes drilled to 1mm mit 450wt Yokioil.

I testes pistons a while ago and tamiya pistons (3*1,0) mit 60wt oil are pretty similar to what I run now.

If you use the Rayspeed pistons does the side with the grove face up or down in the shock? Not that i think it can make much of a diff, but they must be like this for a reason.

Thanks

Hi all.Scuse the ignorance but when masami refers to -0.5 degree skid mount angle - does this mean the hinge pin is tilted towards the front or back? and please remind me what each does!see attached. also in that photo a while back he appears to be using the what many believe to be inferior SD roll bars rather than the rayspeed versions. any ideas why?

Thanks

Default Probelsm with one way

I am new to the BD and have had the following problems:

After about a dozen batteries the central one way failed completely. I replaced this. I was told to put a little bit of silicone grease in the one way to avoid this.

After about another 6 batteries the shaft that the one way rides on snapped at the point in the middle where the pin goes through it. It also appears to have damaged the one way bearing as part of this process.

Each time I have replaced it with a solid piece until I was able to get the spare.

Staring to wonder if I should just use a solid piece and change the dront one way as well.

Are these parts normally this fragile? We are only using a 27T motor on rubber tires so i cant imagine we are overloading these components.

Also does anyone have a good setup sheet for 27t on Asphalt?

Thanks


Peter

yes the hollow shaft is much better quality, have seen a few std ones go but none of the hollow ones, even under intence mod conditions.Inox grease found at a good fishing tackle store is great for oneway.

Hey all,

Quick question, will the wishbones, part number SD008HW fit on the BD or are they just for the SD?

Just got myself a BD and I'm all new to these things

Thanks
