Hey Rob, more than likely I'll be heading to Debbies with 1 or 2 more from around here. So you might see 2-3 more BD's up there this Saturday. I'm just not sure if I want to race more than Stock Class with a chassis this flexible. Of course as much as a hackfest Stock Class is up there... I may have to chance the car in 19t. Definately not Mod until I can get an EA chassis for it.

made the center oneway into a locked pulley, which gave the BD more off power steering entering to mid corner... also changed the rear springs to white all around which made the car was very reactive... might try blue in the rear again...

All our regular guys will be running 19T. It's the new "stock" at Debbies it seems.

Jimmy Mac,

I think I might run stock as well. Me and Ike were talking about it Monday, we both just got new kits and aren't ready to run 19t. I think Brian and Keith might still run stock too. Brian and Larry are working on a Pro stock class which the guys in stock will move on to after getting 27 laps for three races or something like that. I don't know when this will happen. As small as the track is I like stock better, easier on tires and equip.

I only ran the car for about 3 packs. It felt pretty good. I couldn't get the front to stop pushing, though. Spent most of my time tooling trying to put in diff in the front only to realize the diif pulley for the one way won't work with a diff....DOH.... I knew that. If you have an extra diff pulley you are willing to part with bring it with you.

I hope to be there Sat if my wife doesn't drop that baby before then. I told her not until Sat after the race.

Save your SDW if you dont need the cash to buy the new car, that way just incase you dont like the BD you can go back to the SDW.

No man...you got it all twisted, the school-bus drivers need to start racing REAL race cars....

"1/12th...the drivers class..."

Actually, I've had a brand new/never run TC4 perched on my computer since Jan. I simply have never had the motivation to run it. I suppose I'll start working it up for 19T class, especially since I have a ton of 19T motors on hand due to 1/12th.

BTW...I gave you your pinion back, I placed it back on your caddy after that heat and bought my own. (28T 64P right?)

Chaini, Centre pulley is not out yet. Matt checked with Yokomo USA and it seems as though it will be avaliable in a couple of weeks.

What some people are doing is locking up the centre one way themselves with set screws or JB Weld.

I've just finished to build the kit yesterday, I was wondering which tension the belt needed, the stock setting seems to have to much tension.
Concerning droop where should I start?
Thanks

Gilles

Sean, get that TC4 rolling!

Your right about the pinion(don't really care anyways, only messing with ya). Gary probably sold it with his 1/12 scale. He's a little careless with my stuff.
I think I have given about 15-20 pinions. see you Sat

Anyone know where I can find the diff pulley? I checked Speedtech already. Steve let us know when you get those BD parts in.
