Softer and narrower would make the car roll more and make it easier to flip. That's my experience. Maybe if you combine it with the droop it would work.

I ran on asphalt so I did not use the steering bridge at all. Will try running it to see if it helps.

But 3rd screw works also.
Will also try this too. Thanks.

Hmm very productive day at our track. I was running Mod on medium traction today. It felt really good. My only question is to those who have tried DCJ's on the rear. How did it change the handling characteristic of the vehicle?

I only got to try rear DCJ's on my Tamiya but it makes the rear end more predictable in the middle of the corner. You'll still get the rotation from the rear end, but it won't suddenly snap away from you when you're driving really hard.

Rear DCJ's are supposed to give you more on power steering. I will check this out tomorrow.

Just one question though,

With the lipo you are using, does that have the grooves beneath the case that locks into those 4 holes in the chassis?

I was looking at a few lipos the other day, and they all had groves beneath them to specially fit a chassy, but what chassy?!

Thanks
Bill

Yeah the Lrp lipos have raised protrusions on one side that a slot in to the chassis. I would use them but I haven't found a place is the us that sells them.

Your car looks like Volker's spare car. NICE!

For all those having problems with inconsistency about the car, ive found the problems. You need to replace the shock bladders every day you run. I fond that they swell up and are a pain to rebuild as well as not performing the same.

Also for those struggling with the aggressiveness and edgy steering, I found running the shorter servo arm made the car a lot calmer and consistent.

Right now im running a tamiya servo saver with aluminum horn insert which is the same length as the short servo arm included with the kit.

So, Would this fit in the BD7 right, Or will I need to purchase something else for it to fit properly

Yes, they fit perfect, nothing extra needed.

That's ridiculous. I rebuild shocks because I want fresh ones, not because I have too. I loved the bd7, but it's stuff like that, that makes me glad I'm no longer running it.
