I have recently got a second hand BD to play with, what are the recommended mod's for asphalt racing.

I take it the CGM steering mod is a good one to do. Do you still put hpi suspension parts on them and what the reason for doing this?

Cheers

how does he mount the yokomo steering knuckle on the HB hub? I try it but yokomo steering knuckle is too tall for the hub. Does he shorten the knuckle?
