Think I've figured it out, for some reason the bulkheads weren't sitting parallel, there must be some play in chassis screw holes? Anyway I tightened them while perfectly parallel and all seems okay so far.

Without shock towers, or upper deck, you are relying entirely on bottom deck screws for alignment ?

Loosely assemble the entire car before worrying about how your pulleys line up
Also, do not sand or remove any material from shock towers, they are supposed to fit snug, this keeps the car square

ended up sticking the p5 o rings in the only place that fit, under the out drives where the black original ones were.

hopefully fix my problems

Yep, that's where they go!

Ah good, didnt really make sense putting em anywhere else lol!

also got a few extra bits for the bd7 RS today, its quite fun actually to start slowly taking parts out and putting better ones in, never had a real chance to "hop up" before.

Got the blue alloy front and rear belt pully, alloy front spool, the p5 o rings to stop the leaks and the 5mm clamping hubs, will need to grind down the threads on the CVD to accept better serrated wheel nuts as there is a lot of thread sticking proud still.

No, I had the top deck on, it was just removed for the picture.

My BD7 has traction issues where it will feel real loose. Exactly like the poster above said about the rear wanting to fishtail. I am running on high grip carpet. I am using the standard plastic arms and knuckles. I will try to run the carbon pieces.

Anyone running the titanium spur gear main shaft? I wonder if this cuts down on the screw stripping that I have been getting.

I ran with plastic arms the first time out with the car, but it generated too much traction. Should be great for asphalt though. Don't forget to try raising the rear inner camber link if nothing else keeps the rear end down. It made an immediate difference for me!

How are people stripping the shaft? Over tightening? How often are you removing it? Just curious. I haven't taken mine off once I got the car fully put together with the correct spur.

What tyres are you running? I get this on Sorex.

Chris could you post your setup using the editable setup sheet HERE
Kind of hard to guess what the issue is, not knowing where your setup is coming from ?
