Anyone willing to explain why no threadlock is a good thing?

Because the excess thread lock was getting on the couplers and binding them up in the axle.

Thread-lock on the thread is great, but it doesn't work well on the barrel and ball...LOL The first batch of CVDs came with thread-lock all over the pivot parts

All ya gotta do now is take the screw out, apply threadlock yourself (carefully) install the screw again, oil and go. I had a few CVD's before that I have a feeling they just dipped into a huge bucket of threadlock rather than putting it on the screw itself lol.

Bushing oil? Is that better protection/ lubrication than using tamiya anti-wear grease?

I think the oil is lighter and keeps things moving free

The Orion 19 turn has been looking pretty fast, gonna try mine out in a couple weeks to get ready for the IIC myself.

OK, I agree that threadlock should stay where it belongs, not be all over the place
As for CVD lubrication, I have tried different stuff over the years and for the last couple of years I've been using Valvoline motorcycle chain lube (white stuff):

Easy to apply with spray bottle, doesn't fly away easily and doesn't attract too much dirt like normal oils do.

i too WAS running the BD for around 3 years, had lots of wins, and loved the car, however when i saw the Mi3 it was just so damn pretty i bought one for the shelf, then i drove it, fastest lap after 3 weeks with the yok was a 12.7, fastest lap first time out with the Mi3 12.4 wanna guess which one is on the shelf now.
