Rebellion-RC BD8 MM mid motor conversion kit

RC-Carbonstore have announced the release of their next Rebellion-RC MM mid motor conversion kit, this time for the proven Yokomo BD8 touring car. The conversion makes use of the same features as the recently released Xray T4 and Team Associated TC7.2 MM kit, meaning they utilise a patent pending sliding motor mount design that allows gear mesh adjustment through the chassis bottom, with the narrow design of the whole assembly ensuring the overall motor and battery width remains the same as in the “rear motor” standard car, creating a very centralised weight distribution and less unwanted chassis roll compared to current mid motor conversions. Other features include wide gear range settings, making the kit usable for stock and modified racing alike, it incorporates two chassis stiffness adjustment areas that allow to brace the upper and lower deck in front of the rear bulkhead, and in front of the centre shaft – allowing to access complex chassis flex settings. The BD8 conversion also comes with a modified Team Associated TC7.2 floating servo mount to allow for enough space for the mid motor layout and it is only usable with 40T spools and diffs, but not the older 34T pulley drivetrain setup. The carbon fibre parts are available in a range of twelve different weave colour options and the kit, that is completely made in Austria, also comes with high-quality Bando Kevlar belts as well as all needed screws and bearings.
