Vigor BD7 bulkhead spacers & steering wheel pads

Vigor BD7 bulkhead spacers & steering wheel pads

Vigor have introduced new fine-tune bulkhead spacers for the Yokomo BD7-2016 car as well as high-grip steering wheel pads. Staring with the spacer set, already introduced in 1.0mm and 1.5mm specification the new 0.5mm and 0.8mm set allows for finer steps of bulkhead and motor mount raising. Using the spacers improves chassis flex and roll, meaning greater traction depending on the track conditions. As for the high-grip steering wheel pads, the rings are made of a special soft plastic that is available in eight colours and that is very easy to clean despite the bright colours.
