Hi

I have run both cars and found the BD to carry more corner speed, this being in 19T. The LCG has a lot more flex than the BD.
The support that you do get from Yokomo is more focused on the BD even though the geometry is suposed to be the same.
One thing with the LCG is that you can not get the steering links straight, they will always be at and angle. Plus the rear input shaft alignment needs to be a lot more accurate than the likes of the CGM and produces a tight spot.

Bth good cars but prefer the BD

Default LCG Input Shaft

i have both cars too. on the LCG their are three bearings on that rear input shaft so leave the one in the middle out. as for the steering use the new rack #SD-202L-15 maybe this will help l like the LCG the chassis is narrow than the BD. when the BD came out it's was made for 3300 wit is lighter than 4300 so on hi speed track's the BD chassis hit's the track. a higher ride height don't help.

Do you think it's the difference in amount push a mod motor gives over a 19T that you need that more steering??
Or are you looking for more angle on the outside wheel.
Chris. when your driving your car what does it feel like it's doing/not doing?
Mine likes to push on power exit of corners, if I change the car to overcome this then I have to much coming into a corner off power.
It would be interesting to get an in sight of what you think is happening with your car or what you would like more of.

Thanks for all you input and coming on here

You Need more lock with a spool to get the steering, especially indoors. The extra lock does not really effect the ware on the spool, more on the driveshafts, but it can only be as bad as a HB Cyclone as that has 25+ of lock

The BD always has good traction, the std car tends to understeer slightly, very rare it is loose..

I have to say the two tests I have done so far for the start of the outside season, that the car feels almost perfect..The current set up I have comes from the Japan Nats, with slight changes..

I was wondering if a front diff is avaliable, or if a rear would work. Also is there a part # for complete diff or do all the parts need to be ordered by themselves.

I've got both. depends what motors your running. i would never run a low wind mod in my lcg as i think the torque steer is a negative against the BD's instant traction.

do love the instant punch the lcg gives with a stock though and if you get the long steering posts it is just as stiff if not more so than the bd.

@road rash the front and rear diff is the same and you have to get them separate. much cheaper than xray though!

Default LCG or BD ?

keep this in mind why you decide. get the LCG for stock and 19t. get the BD if you running Mod. also the BD is easy to work on. if you strip a gear on the LCG it's lot of work to change so i can't tell you which car is better find somebody wit both car's an ask them to let drive them

I also have both cars. I use the lcg for stock and bd for 19t and mod. my son also has both and used the lcg in 19t at the mn state champs race and it worked great. both cars are easy to work on but do need a stiffer chassis for foam carpet

Default Building Front Diff

I want to build a front diff for the front of my BD using the new Yokomo Aluminum Diff Joint Set (500-a) Can someone list the other parts needed to complete the full diff. Or just list exactly what comes with the diff joint set and I can work out the rest. The picture I have shows more than just the diff halves.

Many Thanks
