Ronald Völker Wins ETS Rd.2 with Yokomo BD8!

finally the Yokomo BD8 is proven to be the fastest on the market again and in a dominant manner. This time, with some new option parts where used and will probably be standard in next kit when that gets released!

Some info on the new option parts. 

New RP ULTRA SPRINGS, many people have contacted me about these, i just couldn’t give them answer yet. But finally it seems like they will be released shortly and they seem to perform really good. I have seen Ronald and other team drivers use these springs below most of the time since they appeared the first time.  

The new PCS, PITCH CONTROL SYSTEM is clearly inspired by Xray’s innovative flex system. With this you can change the flex in the car more to your liking and should improve the BD8’s laptimes.   

New RTC SYSTEM, i would say that this system together with the PCS is a winning combo. Limitless adjustsability and can customize exactly to your liking. A must have in my opinion for all BD8/BD7 drivers.  

Some great stuff from Yokomo released and looking forward to next races with these option parts to try out even more!

See you 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!
