Keep in mind that the 1.08 drill bit will drill slightly over its size. Although in all honesty even with the small volumes of oil we're dealing with 0.02 is going to make little to no impact.

That was my thoughts. I also measured it with a cheap caliper.

I made similiar front&rear stoppers that the TRF guys use, so just a random servomounts and screws to adjust the gap. In the center I just use wheel weights and tape those in the correct spot.

Are you saying to remove the entire aluminum piece that goes on top of the steering bellcranks and attaches to the top deck, or just the screw from the top deck? Any recommendations on an aluminum horn?

I love Yokomo products, but they are killing me on the price. Just can not justify getting near $700 on some of their drift kits. The BD5 was always out of my price range unless I go used.

I am trying to stay in supply on breakables for an old Yokomo MR4TC SD SSG. I think BD5/BD7 arms will fit. If thats the case then I should be able to use the new C hubs and Steering knuckles, rear hub carriers. I wonder what it would take to adapt that new bell crank.

Yeah mine jumped a tooth in the main when I was turning and got tapped.

I plan on switching to a servo saver for that reason though.

I removed the whole piece and use M3 x 6mm button heads to hold the bellcrank arms / bearings in place.

Makes the car smoother and more consistent due to increased flex.

I havnt had any trouble with the stock servo arm myself yet.

remove the entire aluminum piece!

Makes the car a lot easier to drive! Use some 5mm x 0,1mm shim on top of the bearings and use a 3x6mm screw for the steering posts! ;-)

As you can see on the picture below! ;-)
