Pheyhoe, I run my BD on carpet. So far I have the quickest lap on our new layout. Running foams in stock and 19t.

My BD has been great on the rug. I do have a 3mm chassis on it though. New chassis design is in the works along with a topdeck. Car is very consistant. A whole run and lap times only differ like 2 tenths. Got the car feeling good in stock, but have not hit a dialed set-up for mod.

I am running a chassis that a buddy of mine cut. I planned on trying a EA chassis, but needed something to run now. Hoping to have a BMI, but he has to much on his plate right now. May try some of his 2.5mm graphite out though. I have checked out his MI2 chassis and them seem to be pretty stiff.Also running a rear SDW tower on the front of my car. Shocks mount lower and also have camber adjustments. Going to try making a new rear with camber link holes and also raise the shock position 2mms for travel.

Well my "Team Mate" Jairo broke into the Stock Amain at the Express Nationals in Jersey with his BD. He said he was the only Yokomo at the track in a sea of RDX's and XRays! Not bad!! I think the mains start at noonish. I'll call him later to see how he does. Wish I would have gone. Sounded like fun. I beleive he used kit setup with a direct drive pulley and spool. And he went to short wheel base. Mazda6 body. Anyways, I'm off to racing here locally!

Brian,
Where's the car and the C/F? I've been wearing the mask for a couple of days now in anticipation.
I'll post some pics of the old chassis along with the new one when it's finished
Later

hey shookie, I got my ea motors in. I am used to the new Trinity dyno numbers. What kind of numbers are you seeing on the monster based stock @ 20 and 21.4 amps? Also, how is the hitec race? I need a charger and batteries and then I am racing again and I want to know if the hitec race is a good race to go to.

Hey Guys,
Here is the place to get your Rubberneck Bumpers. They have the SD/BD ones for sale now.
http://www.pdubracing.com/products.htm
scoll down to item #PD017
These are firmer and lighter than the standard or the extra wide bumpers and I have found that they are ultra strong and also protects as well as the extra wide bumper without having to add the extra weight of the extention.
Just thought you guess would like to know.
