goodez- Both cars are very good, the BX is more stable under acceleration. I am wrapped with my BX, and its still in very early stages, i have alot of ideas to make mine much faster.

i found the standard black springs good if grip is up, but most of the time so far i have used Associated Green springs all way round.

I have really only run the car essentially out of the box, with minimal changes. I used Associated 35 in the front and 25 in the rear. I am very happy so far, but i plan to do alot of testing over the next few months. The car is very fast as is, but has alot of potential to go much faster.

The first run I had with the BX was on Hole Shots all round at Castle Hill, worked Ok in the dusty conditions, but changed the rear springs to green associated to settle the rear down.
Maitland (no practice) I went out with standard setup and Hole Shots, the car was a little off in the front end for the first 2 heats, changed to Inside Job front made the front track nicely, tried both Hole Shot and X2000 rears, prefered the Hole Shots in the final.
I ran both meetings on 19t power and was missing the 2nd tripples at Maitland by about 10cm. Lousy driving on my behalve ment that I was further down the grid than I would have expected.

greens harder or softer than std?

i liked 30 front, 20 back better than the oil that came with the kit. also make sure universals lock tited together or you'll stuff your pretty blue hubs and if you're really lucky the diff halves as well.

I noticed that Matt and Ari were running the rear hubs oposite to the way my manual suggest (R on L and L on R) to put the car together, can anyone enlighten me on why?

I just double checked and mine are L1 on L side and R1 on R side. It said this way in my manual.

Greens feel a bit softer than the standard springs.


I am going to do some work on mine to try keep the dirt out a little better.

I put some heatshrink around my Universals to try capture the pin. It binds a tiny bit, but it has saved my pins coming out twice now.
