I have that editable setup sheet from a few pages back. How is the best way to convert that to a size that I can attach to here.

For this setup, now i go with Hpi silver all rounds and 0% rebound, and 3š toe-in in rear.

Greetings, Luis C.
I'd definitely go 3 deg. toe in in the rear instead of 3.5 when the grip goes up, I found that with my 17.5t car it was around 0.1 a lap on average when I dropped from 3.5 to 3 degrees.

Your droop settings, is that 5.5 front and 4.5 rear when u measure from the bottom of the a-arms? I found that running less droop when grip is high tends to give more corner speed, maybe try the religious 6front/5rear droop that most people seem to run.

When you say your car is slow, how is it actually slow?

Hello guys. Need some help trouble shoot my bd5.

After my BD5 suffered some heavy bumps against the wall recently, I took apart the suspension area to check for damage and the chassis appears to be fine.

But once I mount the wheels, there's the terrible sound of the belt griding somewhere around the steering mechanism but only when full lock is applied on either direction. Once, I take the weeks off, I don't see any abnormal behavior at full steer lock.

I also notice that the wheels are slightly bent and off balance. Will this be cured with a new set of wheels, or is something in the steering mechanism grinding the belt drive?

Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks,

Thanks kschu for the tip. Can you point me to an appropriate part that fits the bd5? Or do all tc universal joints fit?

Hello defcone,

I do not run a particular vehicle class as I use my car for drifting. I am running a 11t brush motor.

Oh for drifting won't you be using a oneway or diff up front and spool rear? With the diff up front there wont be any chatter.

Yes, I am using a front one way, rear spool setup. I don't have the problem with the wheels off. Only when I mount the (admittedly off balance) wheels which I find odd.

Thanks for responses, Arn0 make a hard work for me :http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/yoko...102/index.html

I use 6/5 mm droop, and 3š toe-in, with same results. I need to test roll centers how say pcar951.
Shopkeeper, thanks i read later, but Arn0 go to rescue me.
Defcone, yes i use 3š now, but in this first test i donīt have the rear pivot block, i slow to 0.2-0.4 for lap, very consistent but litle slow, generally due to a slight loss of steering.

Thanks, Luis C.

Move your steering links to outer hole it will be better

thanks Sleepstream, I will try it because I almost always fing my BD5W has too much overall grip, especially rear grip.

Do you have the same feeling guys?
