My/our problem with the BD5W has been (and i think setup was far to be perfect) on fast corners especially on a corner pretty long and fast was impossible give gas in the middle, just with a small amount of gas our cars was going out with a terrible understeer. But in the morning with less grip and low temperatures was pretty ok.
Anyway i'll try to work on the setup, feeling is to have a car really stable with a lot of rear grip so trying to have a rear a little bit more "slippery" can help.

Thank you all for your suggestions
what i hv been tried during the TITC 2010, i was using harder spring when the grip level is up...like front hpi gold and rear hpi pink...they work pretty good.. But i was using Ride Tyres so i'm not sure if it's applicable to others tyres as well...

I shoo goo all my suspention mounts, servo, and even all my electronics except battery. I had that happen before I added shoo goo now in some crashes everything stayed intact. trust me nothing is worst when your battery explodes while in the car! That will alone damage your entire car and electronic so $200 is minimum. Sorry your car got damaged though

HAHAHA this is not a case of a battery exploding, I was actually happy that it escaped the wreck with almost no damage.
Have a close look and you will see what happens when you hit a stopped car at around 70 KPH. The servo didnt move, nor any other electronics, but everything in front of that was almost totalled including a bulkhead.

Yes but just a dab of it. I don't really like using threadlock cause of how it can ock ur screws which could lead to stripping of the head so a dab of shoo goo aids the vibration and keeps it intact during heavy crash if the screws get loose. Just for those who are thinking of trying this Heads up it might eat some of the paint off the mount. Some of my friends told me it did it on their Tamiyas but mine Yoke seems ok

I was told that the anodized was discoloring on tamiyas but I have yet to look at my bd5. Forgot to mention tamiya runners were using shoe goo black not shoe goo white. Maybe black has a stronger formula than clear. I'll ask them this weekend........I forgot to tell you that on my reciever I put a carbon sticker all around it and then shoe gooed it so it is not contacting with the plastic which I know will either melt it or turn it white. My speed passion plastic seems to be holding up strong.
