see i told you! i knew we had the definition of bump steering wrong. but when i bumped you coming out of the Esses into the straight.. it gave you more steering right?

If any of you BD owners know someone that's looking to get one, please refer them to my ad in the classifieds. Great cars but I'm to invested in Tamiya stuff. I just couldn't continue my wicked ways as a chassis whore ! Thanks

Anyone running the steering links on the bottom of the knuckles and ackerman plate? I was wondering if it would change bump steer? Sorry if this has already been asked, haven't had much time to read lately, just had my second child, it's a boy.

Default bump steer

i havent tried that yet but it would probably be a better idea just to add shims instead of reversing the whole linkage. That way you won't be too far off the way the steering system was designed.

I have some suzuki but have gone back to the Grafite ones. The suzuki's were nice but never realy fit perfect. So I would rather the Grafite ones none the same.

That would be me with the aluminum steering knuckles. I actually took some pics of them today. I just have to shrink them down. So I'll post them later tonight.

Another thing, I use HPI ball studs for the inner camber links. Much easier to take on and off now. Especially when using the swaybar ball cups with the opening instead of normal ball cups. You never have to take the ball cups off anymore. Just insert the wrench thru the opening and BAM! The ball stud comes out nice and easy for fast adjustments. Just becareful not to over tighten the HPI ball studs. They break very very easily if you use too much torque when tightening them down. Ti ones would be alot better....

how many of you guys use the battery brace? & do you think the brace would cause chassis tweak. the reason i ask is cause i've had a 415 tweak edition & always had this problem even without a brace.

The clearance holes on the bat brace are quite free on the BD so you shouldn't get any tweek there. The tweek would come from drawing the posts in when compressing the brace and even with the foam added that hasn't happened

I've done that mod too...works great.
do you have the part # for the sway bar ball cups?
for now I just drilled a 1/8" hole on the ball cups... something I did also on my Pro4.
