if you guys are looking for both the chassis and top deck, Jari at FF'RC concepts makes a 3mm chassis and 2.6mm top deck all for $65 shipped USD.

I just got mine last week and i must say the fit & finish is Yokomo quality

Default 3mm lcg

I just received my 3mm chassis from Jari for the LCG...the cut looks outstanding...
not sure if it's quasi material?....side to side flex is very minimal, front to back flex is low.

I'm sure the BD chassis would be cut in a similar fashion.

Very nice job Jari looks factory cut no rough edges, great counter sink, and the keyed bulkhead holes line up perfect.
Can't beat the special price under $70 bucks shipped.

his email is (he responded back in 24 hours):
[email protected]
website (Yok is thru email only): http://www.ffrcconcepts.com/

Thumbs up

yes, Jari`s chasis are awesome. I had the second lcg he made and have been using the second bd chassis he made for three years now. the bd chassis cut and finish is great.

Jari is King.

Anayways, do you guys reccomend against running aluminum CVD bones up front when running a spool? I know they can bend easily but I am attracted to the pretty color

I have both and right now im running steel up front.

Yep, steel up front if you are running a spool, the aluminum wears super fast.

Olhipster, Where are you running you LCG? I remember you from Horsham! I now have my BD running a Demon 3mm Chassis and it is awesome on carpet. Scooby and I run at Mushroom Bowl every onece in a while. Also plan on going to a new carpet track in Pennsauken, NJ soon. Should be good for foam touring!

Default LCG

fpart
good to hear from you again.
I've been running the LCG outdoors (last season) superstock rubber tire at Trains and Lanes outdoor track (Easton, PA)...the car is just awesome when it comes to acceleration..and pretty much handles the same as the BD.. and I can fit any size lipo in the car.
I got the 3mm chassis just for 360, the standard deck is okay but just a bit too much flex to be consistent.

wish I still had my BD but maybe if I get a super deal on I might pick it up.

either way Yoks are awesome....

YOKOMO Japan, WHERE IS OUR NEW CAR?????? WE NEED TO BUY MORE BLUE!!!!!

anyone close to eastern PA feel free to visit/race this spring/summer at Trains and Lanes outdoor rc race track.

i have a yok mr4tc Atsushi Hara sitting here for a while collecting dust. not until recently i decided to get back into RC so i dusted the dust off my equipment and went and bought myself an eZRUN BL system.

the specs on the BL is 60A ESC, 5.5T, 6000kv motor and 4000mah 20C+ lipo battery. ive been trying to find setup sheets for the car, but since its so old i wasnt able to find any info. the only thing remotely close to my car is the yok mr4tc special with the narrow chassis and thats only the instruction manual. I want to find some setup sheets for my car. trying to set my car up for a medium size track, asphalt surface with sweeper corners, nothing too tight.

anyone got any tips on how to set this up?
heres a pic of my car
