I turn on my steering wheel very little too

it's partially driving style I guess along with a rather aggressive setup

what usually improves things really much is to remove excessive slop in the ballcups / the steering system

as far as setup goes I already posted some setups and you might notice they don't differ too much

So should I understand the plates are indeed a re-used part from previous cars rather than BD specific?

I set the droop on fine hudy blocks (6.0 front, 5.2 rear)

which results in a hingepin height of 9.5/8.7

what spring do u recommend me to use on technical track with some small n tight corner n medium grip surface ??

will the standard spring Pink and Blue good enough or i need to use HPI Silver & Gold spring or others spring????

i did notice you remove the steering post for certain track setup..your purpose is to give more flex for the front ??

another question is what is the purpose of the low and high Diff placing ??

thanks

Let us know what you think of the new bd5 when you get it running.
my first impression when driving BD5, it's has better steering than my previous car S400.....but im still trying to learn more setup for this car...

makes 2 of us...
i had a decent run on carpet the other day. i still used the standard rayspeed white springs, and just adjusted the droop. front end felt great, and turned in well, but the rear seemed to slide/drift too much into turns.
not sure if this was because im running 40s foams...
day was cut short due to my servo teeth stripping(i should get a good servo!). otherwise it was pretty damn good to drive.

Raced the car for the first time today. Over all it did pretty good. The new spool held up with no problems or wear. The rear diff seemed to hold up. I do see some signs of wear on the right side. But it is still super smooth. I think the car is pretty good. Only gripe is the slop in the steering rack. I had to use some of my small Tamiya shims to take out a lot of it. Car has TONS of room for electronics. Especially if you use a short servo. I could install a jacuzzi between the rx and esc if I wanted to. Car is also pretty balance and drives good. Next weekend I'll put it through it's pace with some tough competition on a fast track. Plus I can see how laps times were vs the 009 I sold.

How do y'all figure it'll do for ashpalt racing? Durability wise, when it comes to flying rocks inside the body, lol, are the diffs well covered?

On my MR4TC, you can barely even see the bearings for the diff through the diff cases...

I always start with yokomo pink/blue (kit springs)
And only if it does not feel 100% I try hpi silber/blue

If with that the frontend feels to soft, I use hpi pink/blue
But that is a rare occasion

I never use the steering post. With it the car is way too hard

Low diff placing is in the correct place!
For me that is fixed and I don't mess around with that

Note: front/rear
