Some people asked for this, so i uploaded one. The BD8 setup sheet is not working yet, so i will upload it another time.

But much is happening at the moment in my life. many fun things and i am always busy doing things!

It´s positive, but can´t do as much as i want with my r/c related content, like i haven´t found time to finish my video on transmitter settings yet. but hopefully it will be done soon!

REVIEW Yokomo BD7/BD8 Susp. Arms

Today i´m going to review the Extra Hard Suspension Arms and talk about how it changes the car.

These arms fits all BD7&BD8, in the package you get 2 arms, 2 droop screws and 2 rollbar holders you can see in the picture below.

HANDLING

I started with trying standard arms, and they got a soft feel to them, you can hit the curbs and nothing dramatic happens. I felt that the standard arms gave the car a looser feel and but much more manageable in higher speeds and in corners.

BUT! The extra hard arms was great! I got much more confidence in the car, stable car and my laptimes was more consistent than before.

I even beat my personal best laptime by one and a half tenth after changing to these arms, So i have no doubt these arms is a great addition to your toolbox. My average laptimes was also improved very much.

These arms don´t need any sanding or anything like that, they fit right away.

CONCLUSION

I love them, you should have atleast one pair in your toolbox, and when you feel your car needs some extra speed or consistency, these are a great and cheap option!

Setup ETS Carpet Hässleholm

Car was really fast whole weekend, this setup was by far the fasetest i ever had! what i changed to get faster laptimes was only to change the width in the front, i recomend this etup for modified as i think it will be really hard to drive in stock with! enjoy!

Testing setups!

I did some testing last sunday, and in my adventure getting faster i am trying different setups. I haven´t tried many setups since i started r/c racing. So i am still learning very much about it!

So here is a setup i used last sunday, average 11.3-4ish. Lap record at this time 11.049

The change was wider front and less toe in rear. this made the car really stable, but slower in average laptimes. maybe becuse of changed pinion from 27 to 26, wich i think 27 fit my drivingstyle better.

EDIT: Standard KIT Carbon chassis!

here it comes!

I forgot to add that there are 5grams on each side in the front and 0.2 shims under top deck for different flex!

This setup was quite good, very stable and easy to drive. I only want more steering without upsetting the rear of the car.
The reason behind the changes was that 5g in front makes the front more stable. The shimming under top was to help the chassis flex more, when i drove first run i noticed right away that the chassis didn’t flex as much as i wanted. The car just hooked in every corner and made the rear slide. So the shimming worked great for that reason.

One funny thing i noticed was that Nicholas Lee’s setup he posted to petitrc was very similar to this, but the track he was driving at was prepped and high grip.

Enjoy and test this setup, feel free to tell me what you think about it.
