Beginners Guide to Yokomo BD8,

First of all, if you are a beginner, my best suggestion for you is to use your BD8 almost stock. To get the car good on every surface you want to have a set of 4 Yokomo Pink springs front&rear. Or RP ULTRA Progressive Springs 2.8-3.0 in front that will be released soon andstock springs in the rear. With these the car will perform really good on every surface and you might only need to find the shock oil & diff oil setup that suits you.

If you race stock, you will need the optional top deck to use bigger pinions to fit.

Experienced Guide to Yokomo BD8,

If you are a racer that have been active a couple of years, you might need these parts to be able to get your car perform a couple of tenths faster.

The 30grams or 20grams balance weight is crucial to your cars handling and it will make the car easier to drive.

When building your shocks you want leakfree shocks. With the blue o-rings and black bladders you get a great fit and these gives you a consistent car the whole run and a must have for experienced drivers. When you are a better driver, the heat in the diff will get much higher, so i suggest you watch my diff build tutorial and you will get instructed what parts you will need.

When i’m at races, i need to control my car so it follows the rules. But sometimes my wing or bodyshell is too high. With these i can adjust that and i can easily adjust how i want my downforce as well. These are very lightweight and cheap.

I use a high speed fan in my cars, both stock and mod. These are recomended to redice fading in motor perfomence and also extend the motors life. I use 40mm for Stock and 30mm for Modified.
