Hello all

Seems the belt tension is a little bit tight (both front and rear) when building the BD5W according to the instruction manual. Or it is actually ok when the car is running?

Thanks.

I had the same feeling with the original BD5
I'm using the Team Bomber belts and from the original position i use , counting the steel ball jump, 1/2 for the front and 2/3 for rear so the belts are a little bit soft and the trasmission is smooth.

Yeah it is a lot better.,

I drove Antoni's car last sunday and didnt want to hand it back lol(ask him)

It is far easier to drive fast consistantly , Antoni had 0.27 in modified.

worth the money IMO

Car was really good, had some push and too much rear grip. was super easy to drive though. Ill test some more and try and post a newer setup.

Hello guys, i'm working for a "low quality" setup sheet, the first one that i made is like 1,9Mb and is not possible upload it on this forum.
So i think in about a couple of days i'll put online a new Sheet with a reasonable dimension for to upload the future setups here so more easy
to share.
