and with double side tape where is absolutely no worry about that.

Just use a good double side tape, I use Plasto tape which can resist to 50 kg and which is made with something such latex inside instead of foam so you can tear out this tape.

I also add a point a glue to secure more and the side of the servo.

One day I wanted to change my servo and I needed half an hour to put it off so it is very secure!

I used shoe goo and when I had to switch servos, it actually wasn't hard. As the shoe goo dries and is strengthened, but also not very hard to clean up after removing the servo.

I use shoe goo also. I have never had a problem with it and was also able to remove the servo to change chassis.

I use shoe goo as well, but since he made a chassis it would be nice to fix that missing mounting hole.

hi guys!

last month i had my first race with my bd5wr and i have to tell you i was very impressed.
i ran with the "flex" chassis and the ball diff as it was on asphalt and the grip was poor.
i managed to improve almost 1 sec. over my record and i am very happy and satisfyed about the car.

but i m trying to test all the components of the kit, that is why this coming sunday i will race with the normal chassis...the car is allready set..and i did this choise even because the weather is becoming pretty hot...and the grip on the asphalt will be much better than last time.
i would even try the gear diff...which should be really good, as anyone told me.


my question however concern the chassis:
did someone compare the two chassis on the same surface, asphalt and carpet?
if yes which one do you prefer and why?

bye

If you have a look at Ronald Volker's results, most asphalt races he won were with wr chassis (Jap nats, outdoor euros) and carpet races with the w chassis.
