How about the coming soon BD, when will release?
If will be different as we saw that 1 appeared in LRP masters, isn't it?
In the case after of the LRP race, they said the car design didn't perform well and the low deck hasn't got so much holes, as i guest that 1 is just exclusively for that carpet event.
I hope at least in the before of Worlds, there will appeared a picture which could be similar of that 1 will release in the market, the other hope is the arm of this new 1 could be stronger.

The BD hard arms are one of the strongest IMO..... If you still have a BD you might want to try them out....

A lot of guys around me broke arms of their SD SSG in modified and sometimes in 540 race, since these problems happened they change to other brand's chassis.
I don't know which arms they are using on their SD, as i know the BD is using H version arms.
With my experience if the plastic is harder then will be easier to broke from collision.
To be realistic, it depends also how could be the design of this newest chassis, if must be more innovative than the previous version then could be fine. Of course it depends also the race result in the big events then maybe i will choose this chassis as my next weapon for next year.

the sd ssg uses sd-008 arms, easy to brake

this is why yokomo came up with the sd-008h wishbones YEARS AGO!!!
and those are totally unbrakeable ... I have never ever destroyed on of those wishbones ...

agreed, the most I could do with the new arms was to wear out the shaft hole. They are STRONG!

Yep,, broke a few things on the BD but have never broke an arm since I started running it when it came out. Arms are very solid.

Uhm, TRF415 make me a little tired, could be interesting if i could be the only 1 with Yokomo facing the majority with 416 and Cyclone. In the case here's no 1 with Yokomo car since broke always the arms.
I am thinking to have the coming soon new 1.
Thanks for your comment, then stay tuned for the news of new chassis.

I tried going to a new set up using 2mm spacers under the front suspension blocks and 1mm under the rear suspension and the car got a little too lazy in the corners for the tires I'm using.... My guess is that this setting would be good for larger tracks.

I'm going back to the 1mm front and 0mm rear....

Trakpowers fit well on BD, the car needs only a bit of Dremel's work on the center topdeck brace (if you use it..).....

i have also stick pack retainer (BD118PH) and it is very useful........



sorry for my bad english

ciao

Hi could someone tell me if the springs used in martins setup are these

HPI Touring Spring #6825 Silver 154.0 gF/mm - 8.6 lb/in
HPI Touring Spring #6849 Pink 272.0 gF/mm - 15.2 lb/in

This was taken from the rctouring site so I dont know if this is the correct values for the springs.

Also any updates on the new car?
