From Team Yokomo:
Introducing the next evolution to the BD10, the BD10LC!
The LC (low center of gravity) design of the new car provides more traction and sticks to the road surface, allowing higher cornering speeds. The car has also been made lighter and features the following new parts:
- NEW !! Aluminum lightweight upper bulkheads
- NEW !! Laydown front damper & damper stay
- NEW !! Laydown rear body mount
- NEW !! Aluminum integrated hexagonal hub
- NEW !! Soft Shock Diaphragm & O-ring
- NEW !! High efficiency hard spur gear
Front and rear upper bulkheads are changed to a 2 hole upper link design, resulting in significant weight reduction by changing shape and removal of materials.
The new front shock tower has been significantly lowered vs the BD10, resulting in a smoother steering feeling. The car is also less nervous at high speed, resulting in better tire performance.
The rear body mount has been moved to the rear, to lower the center of gravity and efficiently increase the downforce of the body. This results in a much flatter car on track as the rear of the body shell does not move up/down. The conventional rear post method can still be used if desired.
The new “AXON” hexagon hub and axle sleeve are integrated to improve traction and rotation efficiency. There is now less rotating mass and no free movement between parts.
The new “AXON” soft shock diaphragm and O ring results in better and more consistent shock performance. This means it’s less sensitive to temperature change and less rebuilds are needed.
The new “AXON” hard spur gear also gives more forward traction and is much stronger than it’s softer predecessor.
