Looks like he just shaved off the top brace. Maybe allow more flex in the shock tower.

What does a top deck have to do with buying a 416????

I saw that chassis a few months back. I don't like it much. I just need a different top deck for low bite asphalt. Kinda like how the top deck changed from the 416 to the 416WE. I'm just gonna buy another one cut it for more flex.

the car doesn't need a different topdeck for low bite asphalt as the standard topdeck of the bd5 is supersoft already, cutting it won't help a lot, what you can try is leave out the screws in row 2, 4 and 5 counting from the front

Hey Martin, Thank You for the tip on using the MuchMore Joint Grease! It may be a little premature saying this, but so far, no wear on my aluminum out drives. But I only have 4 runs on them so far. I'll keep a long term report on the wear of them with the MM grease. I think part of this is due to the new layout. They torn down the whole outdoor track and redid everything. We now have an Asian/European style track. Very awesome I think for us. So the track was flowing. Not like the typical parking lot ON/OFF throttle driving. It was more smooth style, which I like. Anyways, only thing I did not like was the rocks/dirt collecting on there. Gotta clean them out almost every run.

Thanks for the tip on removing the screws. I keep forgetting to do that. I'm just scared of tweak if I do. Some of the parking lot tracks can be brutal.

Anyways, I may try one of your setups for our new track layout. It may be a good starting point. My car pushed today and the Tekin esc lacks good brakes for the hair pin. I think I need a little midcorner steering. Do you think adding 1mm to the steering rack will help out some?

Kschu, I didn't get to try raising the rear diff today. Not enough time between rounds. I'll try it next weekend. But I did set fast lap and won today. Not too bad I guess.



I started rewiring my esc last night. But didn't finish. Look at my huge fan! I fried two motors in one day last month. I ain't gonna do it again!!

Thank you! I'm still working on the wiring. No where as neat as Martin's car!

Fried motor? Well, testing new esc software. So gearing and timing was all guessing. Plus Roar went from 5 to 6 minute heats/mains. So that adds more heat to these damn 17.5 stock motors. And air temp from 90F (32C) to 100F (38C). It was a bad funny day. haha.

I don't really notice my cross joints wearing out. But I have been oiling them after every other run with MuchMore Joint Lube. I'll usually spray them down and blow them off during the week. Then lube them up with 4 small drops of MM Lube for each axle. I'm staying on top of the maintenance for this car like I did on my 416.

Well I just threw the steel diff back into the car. Not gonna risk the aluminum diff in a parking lot track. I pulled the screws out of the top deck like Martin suggested. Now I gotta pull the roll center shims out from under the blocks and go down on all my spring rates. Then I'm off to bed!
