The long awaited refresh of the BD8 is finally here. The press release from Team YOKOMO:
YOKOMO is released the new 1/10 scale EP on-road touring car kit 2018 edition: BD8-2018
The 1/10EP touring car is one of the biggest and competitive market in the world.
Yokomo has been releasing BD series since 2014 and achieved the world championship in multiple occasions: in 2014 with the BD-7 and 2016 with the BD-8.
The 2018 updated BD8 model will be available at the end of October.
This new BD8-2018 is a further refinement of the previous model to push the limits further and be extremely competitive.
In order to reduce the weight in the drive train the front spool has been redesigned with newly formulated resin and all the other composite parts were updated to increase the overall performances. The new special graphite materials has also been used for the suspension parts.
The upper deck and main chassis has been redesigned to increase the rigidly and optimize the balance of the car.
While the updates may seem minor and conservative they are actually introducing many important improvements in all areas.
