your closest bet is Umino's setup on Petit RC. THats for stock though. I have a funny feeling Volker isn't far off that setup.

When you look at volkers car at the ets, then you see, that he isnīt running uminos stock setup...

Different suspension blocks (mostly they use 44,2ff and 43,5fr and 42,0rf and 46,4rr but i saw a 45,7rr on volkers car at the ets), different hole in the rear shock tower (3 in front, 3 in rear), the short wheelbase in front and a different setting of the upper rollcenter, but you canīt really see what shims they use... Also he drives 1mm ackermann i think...

And the guys are driving the steering brace on carpet, but without that shitty screw in the topdeck!

Iīm also interested in a volker setup, but they seem to be very quiet...

Based on the releases of the BD5 version, Yokomo will no doubt come out with another BD7 soon. Most likely a BD7W

My guess is that it would have the Ti screws and links, carbon arms and hubs with the possibility of DCJ's.

Maybe no-one can handle a volker setup.

Or maybe he's just busy winning races and since umino sets up his car he doesn't exactly know what they are.
