How much droop are you running front and rear? How much rear toe? Where is it losing traction entering or exiting? Try running 2, 2.5, 3, degrees rear toe. try increasing rear droop. not enough info on your set up to really help.

also check if the rear suspension travel is smooth.....sometimes there's some binb on the suspension, and it really makes the rear suspension critical....

In addition to what they mention, try rebuilding the diffs also.

Try to use less front droop and check your ball diff for gritty feeling.

i think you should copy the tc3/4 outdrives so we can use the pin cusions in the spool, alum spool with steel pins = short life. or make to accept the corally blades, i understand they will fit a yok drive pin perfectly just my thoughts

I forgot to say that. The outdrives and the spool are designed to work with the Xray blades. They work fine aswell. I don't have the Corally blades so I can't meassure them.

Cheers

Inch? What's that? We european guys only understand metric sizes...
I designed them to fit with the Xray blades for a few reasons:
1) Better part support
2) I think they are cheaper
3) I have the sizes for the blades here

But do you can make a picture where I can see a Corally blade installed on a Yokomo CVD? Perhaps they fit a bit better...

Cheers
Chris

I would take some outdrives....Two sets one for the BD and one for the LCG....
Let us know when and how much as If I have to buy x ray cvds I will have to make that purchase at the same time.
Thanks,

Could anyone tell me if shock towers from BD fit to SD? And if they fit is it good idea to use them in SD?

@Mr. Shookie: You won't have to buy new CVD's... just the small platic parts called blades... To imitate you...
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=196&id=1924

I can tell you on Thursday how much they will cost...but still the same rule... the more you take the cheaper they will get...

Cheers

Nope, sorry. the BD and SD use different mounting styles for the shock towers

You could also use RC Lab blades OR Corally blades - either of which will work perfectly provided the diff out's slots are filed carefully to suit. The bonus of using blades = no slop and virtually zero wear on your plastic diff outs.
