Chattering does not reduce steering ...
This is why double joint cvds understeer ...

The bomber belts are White .. That's the biggest advantage :-)

chattering will not reduce steering however if its really bad it will slow the car down some.

Elwyn, let me know when you have stock of graphite parts. I have to wait and see how much money I have left over after I pay my college for fall semester. After that, I can order graphite parts. I wish I had them for this weekend. I will be at a Nationals warmup race. I think those arms will help out a lot. It is a high traction track with very technical layout. Should be fun!

Hey Martin, do you have any suggestions for starting setup on a track like this? High traction indoor asphalt. People say oneways are fastest here. 17.5 brushless is what I'll be running. Here is a link to pics. Thanks.

Usually when I race this track, I used similar to Yatabe Arena setups with 416. But this layout is more technical than usual. I haven't been there in over a year. I'll have to look at that Yuki setup. I'll have spool handy just in case. But traction is unrealistically high. Like carpet! Thanks.

Well, the Nationals will be, but I think most will be using the control tire to practice with for this warmup. Jaco Blue is the tire. Not a good tire for my local tracks, but it's suppose to work real good at this track. Supposedly it was originally designed or tested at this track.

hi everyone. has anyone tried running the Reedy 35C 5000mah packs in the BD5? I wanted to check on fitment. These are currently the packs i run but im concerned if they will fit into the BD5, especially with regards to the battery plug clearance of the upper deck. i currently run the TC5R but with the high top deck, its obviously not a problem. could anyone provide feedback on this? pics would also be great! thanks in advance!

I think a picture and this same question was posted several weeks back. In the end, the battery will have to hang over the edge of the chassis like it would have to on a 009 and 416. Unless of course if Yokomo releases a skinny top deck.

Hey Martin, any setup advice to my question above? Thanks.

jimmy: thanks. appologies for that. i was not aware it was posted before as i do not frequest this thread. but thanks, was able to dig it up. looks like its possible to make the reedys work if the packs are moved right at the very edge of the chassis. but im just going by the pic posted previously. will have to wait and see. thanks again for the help.
