GO back to there site acually purchase a set, then it will ask you which set you want and in the drop down menu it will be there listed as Yokomo BD. I will have mine today but I am returning them as I found out that the rubber seals have drag and we all know that is no good for bearings in our hobby. I will take that $$$$ and either get the Yokomo ones Part # BD-BBC. Or I will get a set of Boca Bearings, I know Bocas cost more but everyone I have talked too including the guys who run 12th and off road all say they are the cats meow. I have a set of Acers in my SD and now I know why my drive train isn't as free as my bone stock BD....Guess you have learn the hard way. I think I will pull them and sell on ebay, then put back the percision ones I have.
One other reason why I think Acers won't work well is normaly you can remove one sheild as to free up the drive train but with the BD the drive train is wide open so you risk damage to the bearings by opening up the sheilds.

Hope I helped.

Randy any suggestions that you found were usefull last night and how did you place in the races?


On the steering rack and the turnbuckles switch to the bottom it looks as if the switch the spacer to the steering arm you would keep the angle so would that still change bump steer?
I was just wondering if it looks to be a good change or should I leave well enough alone.
Thanks for the help guys,
Stephen <><
Also here is the spring rate chart for every kind of spring....very usefull to have printed on the back of your gear ratio chart. Here is both links.

Does anyone have all the dimentions of the bearings used for the BD?
I can make a kit out of Boca bearings just need to know the complete dimentions including thickness. As that is also a needed measurment.
Thanks in advance.

I put a kimbrough medium one on mine. It's a bit shorter than the stock servo arm but my servo is too quick as it is.

Default BD Shock Question

I don't know if you guys saw my question, but...

Will the BD shocks work with my full compliment of Yokomo springs, or will I need to purchase a Rayspeed set?

Which Rayspeed springs (colors) are included in the kit?

Are the BD shocks the same as the CGM/SD shocks that I already have?

tanks.

RS Blue and White are included in the Kit. so far the box set-up works great.

BD shocks are the SSS type. I forget what was on the SD...I sold it a long while ago...

don't know about the compatibility with the other Yokomo springs...

The SD also has the SSS shock bodies (the short ones). The Yokomo springs do work without any hiccups, if I'm remembering correctly. If you have both kinds of springs, why not try them out? -JB

Since the BD was designed in Japan, and most of the tracks (at least that I have seen pictures of) are wide open and flowing, I realized that the car may actually be too stable for some of the tracks we have here (especially SoCal, with it's tight layouts and constant hairpins) so I made a mount for the rear inner camber links, to mount them outward taking a bit of stability out of the rear end, basically I have the car set up now to where it will rotate very well, but wont necissarely break loose.

I'll post a pic of the one I ran yesterday, but tonight I am going to cut off the stock aluminum ballstud mounts and make a carbon piece that I can make 3 mounting locations on, rather than 2.

I didnt stay to race, just worked on my car and tested all day.

Very nice delrin diff...

I'll have to see if the Pro4 CF camber mount will fit.

On the delrin diff, I actually had to use Losi diff rings to get it to work, I had Associated D rings on there at first but they were too thin.

I just used the std. HPI diff rings... Is the Losi's any different than HPI's?

The HPI's that SoCal had in stock didnt have the D shape, just standard O so I didnt even try them out.
