Remarks – Local superstar Meen Vejrak is the top Yokomo so far in qualifying using the 2018 BD8. Moving away from their standard setup for the tricky conditions at RC Addict, he has gone for softer springs all around and lowered the top of the front shocks down one hole. Making the front narrower by using 3.5mm wide hex adaptors, he is also using the back bone plate, which evens up the car’s flex. Up front he is using a brass front suspension block and a further 15 grams in the bumper to make the car more stable on power. In terms of body the Type S from Protoform has been mounted 2mm forward while the rear wing is fixed as far back as it can go in a effort to get more steering while maintaining stability.
