I wanted to share a ackerman/steering mod I done to my BDM, I did this mod to my 416 and EVO5MS and the steering is WOW
. I've seen some guys go with the HPI castors, but I decide to go Xray2008. The corner speed and infield steering that the ray08 pretty much out performs most.....but I have open pandoras box. The BDM steering needed just alittle more inside wheel out throw for me to stay on the sweepers full throttle without pushing out...... and sneaky turn ins on the 180*
This upgrade is about $40 bucks but it worth every penny.
First and Second Xray008 parts on the 06 BDM.
The thrid picture shows the huge gain in steering throw.
The forth picture shows the wheel closer towards the lower shock position middle.
note: your inside rim will sit close to the arm, 15* may need to be shave off depending on the rims your are running.
You will need 1/8 bit to shave the hole out for the Xray Front or Rear(P) hinge pin.
