What is the advantage of removing the ear for the steering servo off of the edge of the chassis?
The car I bought has already had this mod done to the 3mm carpet chassis plate it came with.

I can only see negatives in doing this.
1: when tightening the only remaining screw, it will pull down on the servo and cause the outside edge to lift up.
2: leaves the servo unprotected from side impacts.

I kinda solved the servo lifting issue with an aluminum spacer i had.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks.

use the one remaining hole to line up the servo and use shoe goo to glue it down, it will stay in place.

positive is
it allows the chassis to roll that bit firther before hitting the deck ,then it will now roll equal both ways

when the pros cut off this ear do they also cut off the servo tabs? I dont think Im up for that.

Thats a positive I never thought of, I can see how the ear sticking out would drag with body role.
Thanks.

What is the basic starting set up for the BD with foam tires running on carpet, with a stock motor?

Alot of the setup sheets I have found are for rubber on carpet.


Also, my car didnt come with the spacers for the split (2pc) hinge pin mounts. Are these being used by the fast guys? What about the spacers under the front and rear mounts?

i think the split pin holders are the same as the one on the CGM.you gan buy the plastic parts bag and just use the plastic spacers included.

go to yokomousa.com find the exploded diagram, find the part number and you can order the correct part for the split spacers as well as for the front and rear pin holders, they are used for roll center adjustments, if you like the way car works you won't need to worry about it. as far and the bd and carpet with foam, most would agree that the chassis isn't stiff enough, however you can look around and find a carpet chassis and top deck for the car.

BD-002GH is this a thicker chassis for carpet? I understand someone makes a 4mm chassis for the BD? This is what I heard not sure if it's true though.

should i replace the stock parts on my BD with any available stronger parts or will they hold up to 3.5R power?

also, anyone know if yokomo (or other aftermarket brands) offer diff/cvd systems similar to xray, cyclone, rdx, or msx? the one's with plastic pads on the ends to prevent excessive diff wear?

thanks in advance for any info
We use TIR alloy spool front and alloy diff rear, with TIR Worlds edition drive shafts on all our Yokes which are used in Mod. Both front and rear have nylon outdrives with alloy sleeves, and we have never had a problem with them.

When we used to run the stock plastic diff in the back I can't say we ever had a serious problem. Just used to replace the plastic diff halves every 6 months. Otherwise never really had any problems.

In fact I think the Yoke BD is the most troublefree car we have ever run.

I want to add the ball cups and studs which come on the MR4BX to my BD. These are the type with an allen key hole in the top of the ball and a hole for access in the cup.
The exploded diagram of the BX shows part#s zc-206hm for balls and zc-207hd for the cups. When I check yokomos online order list, these numbers appear to be wrong.
Does any one know the correct part numbers I need to make this conversion? Is it worth the effort to add these items?
Are most of you guys using the Rayspeed 1.2mm 3 hole pistons for carpet with foam tires?
Thanks.

On a less positive note. I ran my new BD500A aluminum diff halfs this weekend. They were notched an basically unuseable after 4 runs in 19 turn. Anyone else had a problem?
