Have you guys figured out how to keep the 19T spec motor from blowing up??? After seeing several of them smoke out, I still tried my luch with one and was a beleiver from my first run. However as proven to be the inevidble, the motor burned out in my main after cutting it for the first??? Any help would be appreciated.

I think the RDX boys really showed the world whats up this week! Awesome to see Jarrod take it in stock, and obviously some amazing driving by Toso. Thanks to Robbie for the help also!

I stripped the bulkheads down and after laying them on several flat surfaces I can't decide if I think they are bent or not. When layed down with out any pressure applied they have gaps between the surface and the ends and they rock. When flipped over there is a gap in the middle. Hoever when I press down on them ever so slightly they flatten out. There is no misallighment when assembling the car so I am not sure if this small small gap is corrected when the screws bring everything together or if the gaps are the root of my problem. The good news is the car drives fine with unequal # of spacers (which gives me equal amounts of toe) so I should be fine for this weeks big race. I'll have to see if my LHS has a bulkhead I can compare to. For now they are going back on the car and I will be swapping things side to side to identify the problem. If It turns out the BH's are the problem I am sure I can wait till the next batch of updated BH's are ready. How are the 0* and 1* rear hubs distinguished?

Your probably having the same problem as a few of us across the pond, we had a batch of laydown endbell versions that had a small nick in the wire made by the automatic winder (well at least this is how it was explained to me by the importer of this batch)
I have a laydown version and a standup at the moment and they've both had multiple skim's/runs and theyre fine but my first laydown version did go up in smoke.
BTW are you having the same problem about the standup version being illegal because it has a different arm to the laydown one? it might just be the differing rules of the BRCA though.

Sure. Just have all the drivers give them to me. They really do not change much anymore. I will see what I can get from this race for you.

After checking the 0* hub s have no marks and I bet you are right that the 1* have a 1R and a 1L etched in them. I am leaning away from thinking that the BH's are the problem (phew!!). I have a mionor bend in one inner hinge pin which would explain the unreliability of this problem. I take things apart and put them together and I get different results by different amounts each time. I bet the hinge pin is inserted differently each time I install it into the arm and thus results in different readings. I will let you'all know if I narrow it down to that. What a brain tease!!


EDIT:
OK, so probably not that as I just realized the inner hinge pin is keyed to the roll center adjusting balls by the flat spot always pointing up. I suppose I could have installed it with the flat part at the front of the rear arm once without realizing it though. Hmmm . . . OH well. I put it all back togetyher this last time and got equal amounts of toe with equal spacers at the amount of toe I wanted. If its not baroque don't fix it!
