RW RACING-112-64P.
On the CGM i had to run a 96-64p spur to get a 5.6 ration down to a 7.7. On the BD a 112 gives you about the same ratios. I found that with a 112 you have to unscrew the cross brace to get it to fit . 2-3 teeth bigger and you may be outa luck.

The source seems to be at the bearings mounted in the carbon fiber plate that the steering links connect to. I tried removing the shims but of course that completely locked the steering. I'm thinking maybe a thinner shim.

Unless the bearing itself has become more wobbly, I'm not sure how there could be a change since there doesn't seem to be any wear on the blue steering mounts, and the shims don't seem to have any wear???

Any ideas how I can improve this area?
Glue the flange of the bearing to the steering rack, this will take out a ton of play. Then order 7 packs of ZC-207A and use the open ended ballcups on the entire car. These will be tight at first, so pinch the cup with pliers to loosen it up a bit, and they will also loosen up more when run. This should get your steering slop free.

if it ever comes out...I'm sure it's going to cost $$$$$$
I know the SD chassis is very pricey.

Thanks. Gluing the flanged bearings sounds about right. Concerning the use of the open ended ballcups, I've been trying to find them for quite a while. I have 2 packages of the ball ends with the little stopper on the top, but I can't find a shop that has the other part.

Check for that part # I gave you, I'm sure you can get them direct from Yokomo USA, or propably Speedtech would have them as well.

The car was shipped off this week to the engineer to measure up and draw it out for me. It will take a few weeks. But as of now I am shooting for the first of June to have them ready for some guys to test.

The price on them will be around what BMI sells kits for. It will come with Chassis, Top deck, shock towers and possibly a front bumper brace. It all depends on how the componets lay out on the sheet of graphite. Street price should be in the 100-120 range. But will know more after we figure up what we can lay out on a sheet.

Also it will be offered in a Aspahlt kit (thinner chassis and differnt shock towers) and a carpet kit (thick chassis and towers optimized for foam towers to slam the body).

Thanks

EA

I honestly don't know. The I-Net track was bigger and more "open" than any layout I've ever ran at SWR. It should be good as it's not that far off from the kit setup. Just talk to John Scott or the Siemantels when you get up there, they've got their BD's working pretty good at SWR.

Finally got to test out the Boca Ceramics yesterday.
Here is what I found.
They did improve the freeing up of the drive train.
and by doing so improved my lap times...But only marginally
The car is silky smooth, but it now has a little bit oversteer issue I will work out this week.
Not sure if the oversteer issue is from the new bearings but I will fix it either way.
Had a blast out at 4Fun though....
Until GOD turned on the 85degree Blow dryer....eyes were a burning...LOL

Default Rear Toe

Are most of you guys running the stock 3 degrees in the rear? I'm wondering if I can gain a little more speed with less rear toe???

I run between 1.5-2.5 degrees rear toe depending on the setup.
