Hi All,

Volker does not use the body clips to hold the adjustable body mounts in place but rather a pin, does any one know which? Looks like it doesn't wobble as much as with body clips.

Thanks for replying.

Are there any geometry changes between the bd7 and bd8 steering blocks and c-hubs?

Hi All,
We have a question regarding the Droop measurement with the RTC installed.
How do you measure droop with the RTC installed?
I know how droop is measured regularly but with the knob on the bottom of the swing arm it is hard to get a correct measurement.

Droop over ride height method is what I use. Ran the BD8 on asphalt last weekend and I'm liking the car on asphalt with RTC. Never had real luck with the BD8 until I used the carbon spur brace, pitch control and rear toe control. New upper deck that comes with pcs system works for blinky also.

I will be posting a New Sealed Carbon BD8 kit for sale in the next day or two. I also have just about every hop up for it. Items will be cheaper that can be bought new anywhere. PM me if you are interested in the kit or parts pricing. I will post a link when posted.

ok attached is the crazy RTC setup that is worth trying, it generates lots of rear grip.
The other option until we get the narrow rear RTC arms is to run the old BD7 steering knuckle in the RTC with 3out blocks as its 1mm narrower then the BD8 steering knuckles, which is basically what Ronald used at the worlds.

It was my second race in Mod, so was still 0.5s a lap off the best drivers in the country, Simon was on pace so no surprises there
