Thanks Phillipp,
Your set-up was alot better,thanks .I found the spool can get a bit grabby( sort of torque steer) out of corners but quite controllable,is this normal?

Caster is 4 not 2

Or for tight corse use more ackerman (2.5mm) springs hpi (silver/pink) or yokomo (pink/blue)

Default Spec r Swing Shaft

Hi,

I have purchased a set of the spec r universal swing shafts version 2 part number SPR001-bd2

http://http://www.rc-mushroom.com/pr...mo-bd5-p-23318

I am having trouble getting them to fit.

If i use the supplied bearings there is a lot of play, but if i use the original bearings I can't get the pin in. I have ended up shimming them out.

Also when in place it hits the back of the C-hub.

Are these the right ones for the BD5W?

Any hints on getting them to fit?

Thanks

Dave

I am using these and the supplied bearings fit without slop, where is the slop at? You have to file down the c hub a tiny bit.

Part of curiosity, are the team drivers using the original yokomo dcj or is it an aftermarket dcj like specR? Would love to convert my wx into wxi.

i used the supplied narrow bearing and used a shim up front just below the pin hole.

As regards to the shaft hitting part of the c-hub all u have to do is remove some material with a surgical blade. 1 min job :-)

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys.
The slop is between the pin and the Bearing which I shimmed.
I will attack the c hub. I just thought that They would fit without needing any mod.

The team drivers are using the Yokomo DCJ cvd in the front. It will become available later this week or next week in Japan. There is no part number or price as of yet.

THe other parts required to convert a WX to WXi are:

1 x DCJ cvds (frt)
1 x Plastic Blades (new white plastic material - lasts heaps longer, especially when running mod)
1 x Harder Chassis (has less flex than WX chassis)


HTH,

Leonard.

first of all, not doubting you, but I thought the wxi was designed for carpet. Wouldn't the chassis be stiffer than its predecessor?

True, it would be stiffer than its predecessor. However, we can just change between chassis in accordance to the surface raced on as almost all parts are interchangeable. In my case, we have like one race on carpet a year and most of the time racing on asphalt so i would only used the dcjs for my wx.

Im not that sure about the wxi was designed for carpet race but looking from previous posts it sounds like it is designed for carpet. Not 100% sure.
