Remarks – Current World Champion Ronald Volker has found back his pace on carpet with a number of changes to his Yokomo BD8. Prepared by Yukijiro Umino, the German’s car sports a new one piece motor mount, which is connected to the servo mount by a tie rod. The other changes are a new spring which gives more mechanical grip and using the LCG battery from LRP, which all together make a big change in the car’s handling. On the rear of the car, Volker is using the RTC system but set in neutral which gives more grip in the rear thanks to different weight distribution.
