Sorry I don't have pics since I didn't attend the race. I'm sure someone will post pics in the reedy thread.

I don't have the skill or the patience to paint anything with more than one color. The painter is Jeremy Go AKA J-go paints.

I beleive you can buy some of his prepainted bodies at speedworld.com

Just got back from racing yesterday and the BD was working really good....

On another note Masami is atttending the Reedy Race of Champions and it will be interesting to see what car he will be runnning......

I know the BD works well at SpeedWorld since Billy Easton won the 19turn ROAR nationals there and almost won the Modified Class also....

I'd run one if Yokomo comes back to the states. The BD does look good and the one local guy out here that has run his forever seems dialed.

Yokomo hasn't left, they don't have a factory driver in the U.S.A. currently but Yokomo U.S.A still supports all the LHS. They just need to call and order what ever is needed... There are a couple of locals here at Socal bringing out thier old Kit which is a big improvement considering I saw that it was only me and Jason C running the car for a while. So there is a resurrecting interest in the car... It just works and is pretty maintenance free......

King of Bmain, Sorry but I don't have Billy's set up.... Your car is almost there when I was watching your heat it did look good, You just seem to need a tiny more steering....


Oliver Clipper one of the locals brought out his BD for the Weekend and almost got TQ in the second round for the 10.5 class and he told me he is bringing out his other BD also. One for 13.5 and 10.5, his car was really dialed... I ended winning the 10.5 class from 2nd in the Grid and Ron C. also driving a BD got 2nd, Oliver forgot to charge the Lipo on his BD and ran the Main with another car and didn't fair so well but all our cars are consistently good and easy on tires.... All three of us are running pretty close in set up.....

Stik Man, I was using the Mazda Speed 6. Sorry for the typo and hopefully the set up will be a good starting point for you...

Oh one last thing, remove the Graphite stiffener on top of the rear bulkhead along with the stiffener post near the rear of the battery and remove the bottom screw on the left rear bulkhead the one all the way in the front.....

Yokomo USA needs to put the word out that they are still open because I don't think anyone around here knows that. I might tinker with one after the Reedy. I'm really loving the Cyclone though. The BD will have some big shoes to fill

The Cyclone definitely is a good car. Oh and good luck at the reedy race...
