speaking of tools, it would be nice if schu decided to put out an 1/8th inch reamer for the a arms and such so one can use them as they glue the holes to refit the hinge pins. If anyone know of a store that i can order such a tool i would greatly appreciate it. A part number would be even better as i have already spent months looking for one.

Thanks.

Patrick and Pat stepped up the pace in the main. The fast lap on the layout was a 9.6 until the main. They were both consistently in the 9.4 to 9.6 range with a couple 9.3's in there. I think my main race time beat the TQ time though. I just need more track time there because the car is really good.

How was Camarillo?

I broke my chassis in my second practice run. 2 by 4 sticking out. Went home after 1st qualifier because my spare car sucked and Steve and Todd practiced all day yesterday. Might have to lay off for a month till I get more money for a new chassis. I think the car would have been ok against them if that didn't happen.

Thanks I think I will stick with the Tamiya shocks. Will be ordering them really soon.

Ouch. That sucks. Let me know if you need anything.

Kid tt01- the BMI website hasn't been updated for a little while. Jason does have the chassis. You can give him a call and order one up. The phone number is on the website.

Can't be used. The drive trains are opposite of each other. The one-way bearings themselves will be backwards allowing the driveshafts to freewheel the wrong way.

Well unless you have a spare BMI chassis, then I don't know what to do. I have a new stock chassis, that will probably be my only option.

Unfortunately no I don't have a spare. In fact I'm going to need a new one soon. I was just looking it over and it looks like I may have taken a hit on the back somehow. It's starting to delaminate just a little on the back edge. I'll sand an re-seal it. It should be find for a while.

Default Dutch nationals round 4.

Next sunday is the 4th round of the dutch nationals.
last sunday there was een kind of an pre race.

The car was pretty good and qualified 2nd.
but i found out that my car falls still in the corners.
So i need a little more corner speed and roll.

the setup further was good but with more corner speed and roll i could be a little bit faster.

my setup now:
Front:

50 oil 3 holes
asso blue 17.0 lbs
2nd outer hole on shock tower
outer hole on the lower arm
middle top camberlink
1.5 camber
0.5 toe out
one way
alloy pivot blocks

Back:

40 oil 3 holes
asso silver 14.5 lbs
3rd outer hole on shocktower
2nd outer hole on the lower arm
middle top camberlink
1.5 camber
3 toe in inboard
alloy pivot blocks

battery front inside
19turn element orion stock motor (hand out)

I thougt i could maby try roll bars but maybe that would change the grip to much.
Do you guys have a couple of tips for me what i can try?


Thanks

Arjen

Dont wanna contradict but it does fit and heres how.

take of one way bearings and remove C-clip holding domed washers holding the pulley in place.
Turn pulley over so thePulley is more centralm refitt dommed washers and C-clip.

Fit onelway bears as removed and bobs your uncle.....

Rather spen 30 mins doing this than 35.00+ on a new one way..
