If your local hobby shop does not carry yokomo parts you can always shop at www.yokomo usa.com

Can anyone give me some starter gearing help. I just converted over the brushless( I was a die hard brushed man). I have a BDM with Sphere competition touring speed control. My motor is the Novak SS PRO 10.5. used the gearing they told me in the setup and it is slow. I converted over to a 100 tooth spur gear.

Any ideas. I run on an open track and flowing track big enough for 1/8 scales

Have a look around for TOP Racing Scythe parts.
The drive train parts are interchangeable with the Yok since its based on the Yok.

Hi, i am on the verge of buying a new Grainger kit, Yokomo BD will be new to me always had Xray Tamiya or recently Scythe.

Couple of questions though.

This kit has the shorter worlds arm, is it best to fit the longer std BD ones, or what is the rule of thumb. What are the new shock bodies mentioned on here, are they the ones in this kit?..

and.. last week Chris Grainger was at Southampton track doing some private testing allegedly with a loads of new Yokomo stuff. Anybody have more info.

Cheers
