although i would not be suprised is they bought out a cheaper version of the BD without so many ally bits etc..

If I'm correct, I think he's saying that they're thinking about bringing out a lower spec version of the WORLD'S KIT (SDW)... - jb

thanks to matt howard for your spool setup from yokomo.tk, it is really awesome, ran it today at national and i managed to get 9th in A and 4th in A in 27t. worked really well, the only thing i changed was i used 1 degree rear camber.


thanks
Andy Gower
Glad you liked it, that setup seems to have worked pretty good for others that have tried it as well.

I use silicone lubricant in my diffs.. runs very smooth as far as wear goes, the plates are not very expensive, either are the standard kit balls so i would just buy some new ones....

OK guys help time... here's my set-up-
*tyres- Take Off CS27
*ride height- 5mm
*droop (front-2mm) (rear- 6mm)
*shock oil- 40wt. all around
*springs- RS green all around
*shock tower position (front)- 2nd hole from INSIDE using old RS rear(not the new geometry one) shock tower
*camber link position (frt.)- lower row/ innermost hole (middle hole on C-hub)
*front HD lower arm position- middle
*shock tower position (rear)- 2nd hole from OUTSIDE using old RS rear shock tower
*camber link position (rear)- lower row/innermost hole (3rd from outside on hub carrier)
*3-degree rear toe
I'm on a tight-technical carpet track w/nice traction. I had RS blue springs on the rear first but the ass-end was sliding on initial thru mid-corner so I switched to green and that helped ALOT. The rear-end is scrubbing/skipping thru the corner now, if you know what I mean?
Could someone give me tips on how to improve my set-up, starting with some things to change first...
Thanx -JB

that is a picture of the new conversion kit, the LCG "lower center of gravity" that is a upgrade for the ssg based on the SDW or worlds car. just without all the bling bling, i.e. alum axles, ti screws, etc, etc, lets just wait and see what happens before starting a new tread.

skipping? with rubber tires?

is the track rough? i dont believe rubber on carpet would provide enough traction to skip the rearend, no matter how stiff it is... track must be rough. by scrubbing, does it slide out?

i did alot of testing on carpet (before they took it out) and ive found that low friction universals scrub alot of corner speed and corner accleration. try harden universals (at least in front) / i dont like alum because on carpet they wear out quickly...

the rule of thumb i use is;

stock motors & 19t use 70t spur then use the appropriate pinion...
you could use 64p, ive used 88t with good results. but 48p are more dependable when the track has marbles.

mods no less then 10t use the 72t spur and gear accordingly

mod 9t and less use 75t spur and so on and so forth.... (keep in mind when using 9t and lower that the car isnt faster in the since of top speed / they just spool up faster.

donny is a real fast local, buy him a happy meal and you might be able to negotate the ideal gear ratio for every track in wa.

see you at the sizzler...
