I am using the RW spurs at the moment. Got them for nbhc.com.au. All you have to do is file down the button head screws a bit so it still fits In the bulkheads

So how many are running Volkers setup to a t?

What are you finding? Loose or tight etc?

I'd much prefer a nice smooth fit, rather than have to edit something and potentially screw up something else... If you know what I mean

I am using Kimbrough because that's what my local track keeps stock. Took me all of a few seconds to file down the screws so they fit.



Another option, you can use
Tamiya 51211 - RC 3x5 Flat Screws



I hate having to special order a spur gear, especially how easily it can strip.

So back to the DCJs... The Yokomos pin is too short, the Tamiyas rub against the hub, the Spec-Rs take a pin that is 2.0mm instead of the Yok's 2.1mm, so what else is there?

Can the pin for the Yokomos be slotted? or is there a longer pin we can use? any ideas?

The track i race on is a tight carpet track, so i will have binding in my CVDs.

RW spurs with AE 5mm button screw from TC6 works fine

Oh... this is not good! haha.

At the end of my recorded run I left the car on the track to cool down for a bit. When I pick up the car, everything suddenly stops..

Turns out the bullet plugs melted off the solder joint - and solder melts at 180 degrees

Motor came off at 110 degrees while the speedy topped at 50. I wont be running this motor again. Just have to wait for my 13.5 to arrive in the post

I ran it for a bit with the exception of the shock bladders because I didn't have those.

I'm running on a smaller carpet track with sorex 32 and sweep 32 and found the set up easy to drive for mod but could use a lot more steering and almost perfect for 13.5 no boost. I only had to change the droop values for less droop and it was almost perfect.

Heat shrink the outside or use shoe goo adhesive? I'll let you know how they fare in a week or so when I get mine from eBay.

I have never had a binding issue with Tamiya DCJ's in my BD7. I have not modified anything and no binding. Mine have been in the car for three or four months.
