the pulley has a groove machined way to large for the tiny pin

Do many of you guys run your cars in a parking lot type of track? Abrasive surface.

Where do you guys get parts for this car in the U.S? I'd like to try out the springs and can't find them anywhere. Thanks.

Just got the new Zeppin Chassis plate, first thing I noticed was the quality and craftsmenship! superb! meets or exceeds Yokomo's precise build quality!

The original BD5W chassis plate measures 95mm in width, the Zeppin Chassis plate measures just 88mm!!! incredible! awesome! radical!

What really turned me on about this thing is that it was priced low (about $49+ shipping) and featured an addition mounting tab for the extra servo mount. No more of this servo tape bull$hit

This is a really trick upgrade for your car if your running on medium to high grip carpet. Way better than the stock part, get yourself this chassis asap and order up the servo mount.

Having a problem with my bd5 worlds on carpet , spool front and ball diff rear. After each 5 min run i keep finding the front wheelnuts loose on both sides, standard blue lightweight nyloc nuts and can't see any vibration?Tried different sets of wheels and tyres same thing happens.
Do i need some serrated nuts ? bearings worn?
