Hi, i'm trying to get some help with my BD, i have only just started running it, was second hand, came with a load of rays springs and also yoke springs. I havn't owned a yoke before and wouldn't have a clue which order the spring colours are supposed to be in. Can someone help me with this? Also where is the best place over the net to buy parts? Cheers

The White springs with the color code Dot Orange and Pink are the Stock springs for the BDM ( orange in the front Pink in the rear )

Thanks, are the stock springs good for most tracks? I have a bunch of yoke coloured srings as well. What order do they go in? At the moment the car has red on front and green on back, running no sway bars and shocks laid right down.

I always start with the white progressive springs (Pink dot/Front) and (Blue dot/rear).....


The stock springs seems to be better for really high traction situations.

We are talking asphalt right?

Default Rayspeeds

Martin is definitely right.
Rayspeeds work great on carpet, very smooth feel.

I've also used the Corally black springs on carpet but prefer the Rayspeeds.
