I've run both of those for the past month and a half or so and the car drives really well with them.

Took my Yokes down to play this evening after laying them off for a while as we were getting set for our endurance last weekend, which I did with a TC3.

It was nice to drive the Rayspeed SD and the BD again.

I have rebuilt the SD using my own 3.4mm chassis. I set all the suspension measurements up exactly the same as the BD, and it was brilliant. It's never been so good.

The Bd too was brilliant and in just 2 packs I was already running steady 16 second laps, which is what all the good guys are doing.

I run a spool up front on both cars.

Yea I think I am going to put mine back in at Camarillo. See what times she does then try the spool. I guess will all depend on the track..I hurd Chadwick likes the tight technical stuff so I might need the one way out. We will see. Let me know what is what Randy. I have never been there and I don't think I will even get a chance to practice that track...
Thanks,

Does anyone have a good starting gear ratio for the BD with a Trinity Monster Stock motor? Also, whats the biggest 48P spur that will fit on the BD without modification? (I fit a 88T spur, but had to remove the graphite bulkhead brace)

84T is the biggest you can use.

Put back on the brace otherwise you will get tweak very easy.
I use 64pitch so all I know is 112t is the biggest and I use about 7.0 as a good starting point on most tracsk then go from there as to what feels right and the tempature and what not. I usally go a little lower at first to see if I am flateningout on the strait...
Just some advise put that peice back on now......go with the 84 and get the right pinion....
Just my opinions but what do I know....LOL

84T
That would explain why their gearing chart only goes that high

Seeing as I would rather stick with 48p then go 64, what other spur size(s) should I get in order to have a little more gearing options? 84 & 82 seem to have close to a .15 (more like .17, but close enough) difference from each other. Should I get an 84t and 82t (and maybe a spare or two of each)?

edit- and a good company/ place to buy the spurs...

Yes I get three packs of spurs from Steve Wang of Speedtech RC check the link in my signature....
He will also have your pinions also...It is always easier to change the pinion than a spur. I like going with the biggest spur and leave it there as I can find just about all the ratios that will work with out having to go to another spur.

it tweek very easily with it on too but cone washers will solve this


to find out an equivelent size 48dp gear of a 64dp pitch, devide the 64dp teeth number by 1.3333 and vice versa for 48dp to 64dp conversion

smojoe;
for gearing, it will depend on track size?
it is often best to ask a fast local at the track you race at, i am sure they will help you out.

i dont know a US retailer, but PRS spurs are excellent, very precise, and straight

cone washers? Like these?
http://www.horizonhobby.com/Shop/ByC...rodID=OFN10343

Before I forget to ask, can those little plastic spacers inside of the shock (you remember those, don't you? it was a tube with a triangle thingy at the end) be taken out or do I have to install longer shock ends to get my desired ride height?

Im not going to make that race, honestly it's just too far and I heard it can have a tendency to get really dusty on the track. Never been there though, so I dont know what would work.
