Default Front pars

Has any one tried using cyclone c hubs and steering knuckles?
or associated parts for more front end grip?
If so, got any part numbers pls, and how did it go.

don`t bother with the bomber one , the blades just break up during run ,can`t get replacements & also no other make of blades fit

Yokomo Plastic version with blue collars is real good

I run my BDM on foams, and I really sturggle to get ride height with it. I have to run about 60mm tires to get an optimal ride height of around 4mm. I would like to be able to run my tires right down to 56mm, but I just can't get ride height. Righ 56-58mm tires I get 1-2mm ride height. On the rear shocks I have to wind the pre-load basically all the way down as far as it will go to get about 4mm ride height. I run 4f 3r droop, and my shocks are 64mm rear 63mm front. Does anyone else have this problem? Or anyone know how to solve it? It is really really annoying.

I can't make my shocks any longer without the shock ends falling off, so I was thinking of trying the long shock ends but everyone says it makes the car handle funny, and to never use them, but I don't understand how making the shocks 65mm with long shock ends is any different to making hte shocks 65mm with short shock ends apart from the fact that they wont fall off in a impact.

Any input? Because im clueless

I use the HB parts at the moment. works well, pretty easy to drive with tons of steering.
The other possibility would be using ZS-4134 with SD-202G (works very well with HB Parts also)
even more steering than HB, but sometimes this is too much.

I use the TiR Spool too. The Bomber thing didn't last too long as the blades always broke. But you could remove a little bit of the material to make the Xray blades fit.

Here is what Chris said about the BDM rear tower, use the standard one.

So in the UK and Europe and even on carpet with a normal 5mm height rule you cant get the droop bellow 6 with the masami tower. so cant run more than 4mm ride height!!! the whole Yokomo team have only used that tower at that track, everywhere else we use the std one

Yea I think the long shock ends will be the next thing I try. I snapped my normal shock tower so I will have to get another one to try. Im going away for a couple of weeks, so I will try all this when I get back. Thanks.
