Most cars chatter around corners with a spool in them.
But i have noticed that defcone's car behaves like mine with the chatter, though I usually use a less powerful motor and the cars become unpredictable, hard to do consistent laps.


defcone,
I dont think that the slop you say you have is any worse than a new kit. Of the 2 brand new BD5's I have bought, both are like tamiya's with the slop in the ball cups, suspension arm pivots and axle bearings straight out of the boxes.

Looks like the hexs are a part that are available to the factory guys and not to guys who support their efforts.
Might have to machine a set down the way its looking, more custom made parts that other manufactures offer off the shelf.

I might have to bite the bullet and take the massive loss of money and sell both of my cars soon, so watch out for the specials.
I don't really get what people say when they say their car is inconsistent. About the car not handling spectacular would have also been me not really knowing how to set up my car perfectly as I have been racing for just under a year.

you can get the Yokomo 4mm wheel hex..i ever saw it on market before..maybe elwyn have stock, pls send him a PM..

about the ball cup have slop, pls use fire lighter and warm the ball cup, then press the ball cup toward a hard surface to make d ball cup become oval shape...this will remove all d slop u have...make sure don't over do it...

please put some black grease or a drop of WD-40 to the Ujoint before each run, it's will reduce the chattering...

just my 2 cents mate...

cheers.

ROCHE New Option Parts


Carbon Steering Brace for BD5
- Made from 2.5mm carbon graphite, the steering Brace will give the front end a little more flex than the standard alloy steering steering and this will added a little bit more steering to the car.



Carbon Wing Holder Plate
- The Carbon wing plate holder is design to be use on wing installation for every Touring car. It will provides additional support to the wing mount to maintain the structure of the wing in the event of a crash.

ETA is around Mid May 2010.

If you use the LiPo the BD5W is the "top".
I had before a BD and the BD5 is really a step ahead...so if you have the possibility...buy the BD5 World Spec without doubts.

Ciao!
