I end up with almost a degree of toe in our out based on this play when the car is sitting on my setup station. Is this an issue of over tightening or has someone else experienced the same?
Could it be slop in the bearings in the servo rack. i know know i have a little wiggle coming from mine.

To be honest, I've never had a t-roll issue with a BD7
The Alu chassis is just easier to drive for my pan car style
Sorex 28's for the win! What insert are you running? The hot ticket in Japan is Sorex 28's with Sweep light weight blue inserts.

My setup it not far off from yours, but mine is the 2013 version. If I remember right, you had the 2013, right? Any difference in setup and handling between the two?

Same insert as you

14' has more steering, and at the same time, easier to drive

Yes, but only for asphalt. I used 2.5 million GRC up front and worked like a treat. Under hard acceleration the rear end stayed planted and the car was controllable coming out of the corners, whereas the spool would cause the rear to break loose. Please note that this was on a tight technical race course. I've never tried it on carpet and probably stick with using a spool.

Kyosho 2K in the gear differential.
1 mm on the bellcrank
0.5 mm shim underneath the front and rear inner link.
5.0 mm front and rear hexes.

That's it really.

Is it me or did I once see a picture of Roland V's BD7 2013 motor mount with a grub screw in place?

No, he's not because that's not what he said.

And your answer was the first thing mentioned in someone else's post and Lonestar commented there was more to the geometry which it isn't.

Read all the relevant posts if you want to save your embarrasment.

I can beat you with nearly any chassis from 2002 on. If you think you have to be an ass. Just don't respind to people's "stupid" questions.
Wow. I've got a follower.

I know what I answered and am responsible for that, not for what you or anyone else makes of it.

What about chassies prior to 2002?

Oh, and by the way, it's spelt "respond".

Niznai - you would fit in at performanceforums.com really well.

You could use the language you're really thinking but refraining from typing as well.
