it's a preference thing...of course...

love my Yoks....

the only thing I'm trying to find is a different type of inner hinge pin...
has anyone fitted another brands pins?
I know TOP racing make hinge pins for the Yokomo although i've never tried them. P/N is PO-YM0101.

Will these fit the SD/BD? These are shock bushings from the MR4-BX

bdM is #1 carpet choice due to the slightly harder chassi

the first gen BDs are more dedicated to asphalt.

sdw is shaft drive = torque steering + less smooth operation/driving

If you choose the SDW or any Shaft Drive change your Current Limiter on the ESC to smooth out the torque steer. Its the Brust of amps voltage that throws the Shaft drive.

m3ndo5a is right...
the shaft usually need to be dulled out on the torque...
my lcg is way faster than my BDs ever were in stock...just a bullet coming out of a turn...
BD is way smoother and very nice going thru a turn...

anyone looking to sell off a BDM? I need spare, cheap please....thanks

Hey guys, for all the BD users that have converted to lipo. I just got the CheckPoint 4900 packs and I was surprised to find out this battery fits better than the orion 3600....

down due to a more direct torque response of the drive train/car
