Also the battery trays on speedtech, it comes in a pack of 3. Is that 3 different size trays or 3 of the same size trays?

If I can clean the one-way out, what type of lubricant should I use to re-lube it?
I wouldn't worry too much about the oneway not spinning too freely. If you do want to clean it use a light weigth bearing oil to relube it.

I've run about 6 packs (2 practice, 3 Qualifiers, 1 Main) on my new BD.

If I spin one of the front wheels, it doesn't spin very long or freely.

Thats good then, just means your 1 way bearings are still new. They will spin more freely as they get older.

I've just received my kit yesterday, I also bought some spare arms and C-hubs but it seems that the material of the kit is not graphite (color is black and feels a little bit softer), I also noticed that the droop screws are larger on the kit arms, so probably the spare arms I bought are SD's HD arms...so My question is the BD plastic a new material???

The BD arms are a heavy duty material, it's really strong, but it does flex. You can use the SD-008G arms on the car with no problems, but the new arms SD-008HG are floating around, I've seen them, just not in any big numbers yet.

Thanks Randy, they BD arms look really beefy compared to the first SD's, even the C-hubs look huge

I have Masami's and Pumpler's setup from the LRP race last weekend but it's too big for me to put it on here. If anyone wants it just email me at [email protected] Maybe you'll have better luck posting it on here

the SDW front arms are shorter so you'll have a narrower front width. They should fit with no problems though.

Yea I guess thats true....Maybe that will be good for carpet... Because you have to space the wheels out quite a bit with Jaco foams to get them to fit. Im pretty sure its enough to make up the difference.

The driveshafts will be too long if you run short arms?
