Do you guys notice that R.V. JMRCA winning car has "BLUE" SSG upper deck & may be lower chasis as well?

I dont think so.. Look at the front & rear shock tower still appeared in graphite black. Also the white cup & plastic bag got no sign of blue light reflection from the tent.. I could be wrong..old man like me cant see properly..

The upper deck must be polished like a mirror then.. Strange the shiny black laptop & sunglasses didnt pick up any of the blue lights..

Today is my first day driving BD5. I felt like the steering is not solid / firm specially in straight. Is it because the small amount of play in the steering link? Any tips?

Thanks

Martin has wrote a "guide" how to fix the steering slop some replies ago, i'll report what he has wrote hoping can help you (for me is working) :

Martin Hofer:
remove the 0.3mm shim between steering plate and steering plate holdes and replace it with a 0.1mm shim, put some ca into the holes of the steering plate where the flanged bearing goes in but let it dry before pushing in the bearing
this way you can take it apart if necessary
additionally:
put some (very small amount) ca on the steering posts, where the bearings of the steering plate holder are later, but first do the lower bearing, let the CA dry, push the bearing on, then put some ca on the area where the upper bearing will go, let dry and then push the steering plate holder along with the upper bearing on
place a 4*6*0.25mm spacer on top and screw it all back together

and tatatata you got a 100% slopfree steering



@ Elwyn:
package is arrived yesterday and like always everything has been perfect, always a great service from Hobby Haven, many thanks.

Ciao

Anyone know a good starting final ratio for a 4.0 and lipo? Just general starting point. Mid sized track maybe.

for a 4.0 i would gear at around 8.8-9.0 (with 6-cell) .... this is how we geared it at RCS in Thailand so as to give you a peg of the track size. Locally our track is slightly bigger and we gear 8.4 fdr (with LiPOs). hope this helps ....

hey peops

I've done some racing last weekend on carpet

medium traction (not as high as ETS), with Sorex 28s and a flowing layout

the setup was super good for both stock and modified and I think it'S a good starting point for various types of tracks as basically I started with that setup at the ETS aswell :-)

Thanks altreyx and Martin.

Currently I don't have the shims recommended so I use 0.5 shims instead. Steering is already feel firm without any slop but the screws is still loose. Is it normal? I worry that it will come off after few runs if I forget to tighten it up.
