JB Weld was recommended by Randy. I found a link and sent an email to the company in England. His reply was...

I would suggest our slow cure formulation Autoweld 5.99 a pack from Halfords.
Make sure all surfaces are roughened and degrease with Acetone meths, or brake cleaner before application.

I didn't try this as i am not racing with the BD until 22nd May, should have the locked pulley by then. What classs are you racing? I believe it wasn't up to low wind mod racing.

Default Thick chassis plate

I actually do some work on the side with carbon fiber plate.
I did the bumper braces rc-zombies posted. I also do a couple different ones for the Pro 4. I am interested in producing a chassis for the BD. I have 3.17mm plate that I plan on cutting it from. I myself do not have a BD, but if there is someone who has an extra chassis plate, or are willing to part with there's for a week or two. I will use it for engineering purposes and return it with another thicker plate for an extremely discounted price.
After that the chassis will be cut to order. Please let me know if there is any interest.

Chris

I don't know how this happened but I broke my chassis under the motor last week end(didn't have any big crash), as soon as I receive a new one I could send you the broken one, PM me if you are interested.

Where did you get yours Randy?
Yokomo got them in last week, my guess is Steve will have them in stock today or tomorrow. They took off a little material on this piece, should be lighter than the stock. I havent run them yet, but I'll throw it on my car for the next time I race and give you guys some feedback.

Actually I redid the stock pulley with JB weld after roughing up all the surfaces, and grinding little slots into everything I could, and it held up fine to 6 turn motors.

I'd wait to see what EA comes out with, he's got a pretty reputable name and it's gonna be hard to sell chassis' once he comes out with them, especially if your best chance to advertize is on here.

Default Direct Pulley Mod

Here's a simple way to make a direct pulley with out damaging the one-way bearing of the main gear adaptor. It's a simple 5min dremel job that works! No need to use JB Weld and the advantage is, you can still have your one-way pulley, just take out the pin on the layshaft. Here's a pic. sorry if it's too big

Hi Guys,

Fixed Center pulley will be available this Wednesday. Speed Tech R/C light weight steel spools should be available this Friday.

Why use a fixed center pulley? What is the effect of using one? Is it used in conjunction with a front one-way? Would it be used with a front ball diff? How about with a spool?

Thanks for the tip, but I don't plan on making more than a few for people who are interested now. I have a sheet left over from some special projects of my own, and I enjoy doing it.
