I think it's too heavy for 17.5/stock. Plus my aluminum diff is not wearing out (Thanks to Martin and suggesting MuchMore Joint Grease, use it every 1 to 2 runs). I have about 30 or so runs on it. I will test it out back to back one weekend. I will run one qualifier with the aluminum diff, and one qualifier with the steel diff. Then note the lap times.

I need to still write down my setup for this past weekend. Been busy not sleeping because of school work and tests. But my car is torn down right now and I'm rebuilding the diff. Let me see if I can do it now.........

Bring a folding table and chair! That's what I use. The table folds up into the same size as a folding chair.

I use kick-up like in this setup. The track has some bumps, so kick-up helps. Also, I notice more steering with kick-up. I generally use kick-up on stock cars.

Anti-dive. Not sure if some will agree, but I think it might help with initial steering because you have less caster. But I feel you loose steering overall. I think it's good for mod cars to help stabilize the car.

I rarely mess with the rear squat. But yeah, anti-squat will give more on-power steering but may give less off-power steering.

I think a wider rear will increase the grip and make it more stable, but also increase steering. I think mostly on-power. My car had pretty good on-power steering in some of the smaller sweeping turns. A lot of drivers noticed this as one of the sections I was faster in. I think you'll notice the difference more when the traction is higher. But I always look for ways to make my car have a lot of on-power steering through certain parts of the track where I can dominate and overtake other cars.

Sorry, no MSN. Only Yahoo. I'll try and get someone to record a few laps. I use Speed 6. I like the balanced feel of it. Plus I drive a MazdaSpeed 3.

Oh, you might want to try an R9-R body. It has tons of steering. My friend likes it a lot. I've only used it when I ran a 009 a few months back. But I have not tried one on the BD5. I might have to try one out soon if I am looking for more steering on tight tracks.

Well I'm off to bed!

well generally a wider frontend/narrower rearend has more steering in turn-in/mid of the corner

I usually don't look for any extra onpower steering really so I keep prefering the standard suspension mounts

I also use the standard camberlink mounts exclusively really ... feels better to me

Kschu, if I'm ever on Yahoo, it's under [email protected]

I think the difference between Martin and myself is that he's running mod and I'm running stock. I can use full throttle on-power steering in a lot of turns because of the speed of stock motors, where-as Martin cannot because of the high speed of mod motors. He would have to slow down for the turns that I go full throttle on. So different setup tips from both of us.

I think Kschu would be kind of in between. But looking at that track, it's very similar in the technical aspect of what I race when I go to parking lot races. The setup I posted would work great on that track for me. Have you tried a diff up front Kschu? If you are pushing badly with a spool, try a diff. Sometimes they are faster on very technical layouts. Gotta break the old habit of the "standard" setups. Sometimes it slows you down when you think of what everyone else is running. Gotta think "out side the box."

i havent try a diff yet. i tried it before in my old car S400....it's push alot when exiting corner....i might gv it a try tonite in my bd5 if not raining......

i notice stock class need lots of on power steering as the power of the motor is limited. so i guess a car tat have more on power steering, will gv alittle faster laptimes.....
