Depends on traction, the more the surface has the more the benefits of a stiff chassis will become apparent

Yeah, its pretty high bite. yay, another thing I "have" to buy

Matt- few quick questions
1. are the bearings on your top belt tensioner stock size?
2. where could one buy those CVDs? (I went to the Ti site. I didnt get much out of it besides confusion)
3. who makes that graphite bumper brace?
4. is that a turnbuckle between your two front body mounts? if so, what is it used for?

Thanks

1. Nope, they're 1/12 front axle bearings, I use them since they have a flange on them to keep the belt from slipping off.
2. Schumacher USA would be the ones to contact for Ti Racing products in the USA. They're the ones that sent me these.
3. The graphite bumper brace is custom made by mach10shooter on this board.
4. The turnbuckle between the two front body mounts is a body mount brace. I use two old style yokomo open ended ball stud mounts and they fit perfectly over the body posts

Which track in cali do you race at? I used to race at stockton and have visited Gilroy a couple of times as well. In all honesty my flexible Rayspeed car handled better at rubber tire carpet racing on those two tracks than my CGM did. The CGM was way better with foam tires compared to the Rayspeed but for rubber tires on carpet I think you'll be fine with the stock BD chassis.

yep, stockton

did you really have problems with the belt coming off the tensioner? what do you run, a 7x1?!

I couldnt find the CVDs on Schumacher's website. They did have a few for the MR4-SSG (same size?), but they were all out of stock.

on another note, does anyone know of any good screw kits for the BD that arent $40?

I put those bearings on the tensioner as I was first building the kit, but yes I usually run between a 7 and 9 turn when racing mod.
Try contacting Adrian Martinez at Schumacher USA, he should be able to help you track down some of the Ti Racing CVD's. His user name is AdrianM here on rctech if you want to contact him that way.

If you're using MIP rear bones-n-axles in Pro4 delrin outdrives:
Be SURE to shave the ball-end down almost to the pin on the short half of the outdrives.
After that, you should have some nice looking, hopped-up differentials -JB
Hey Jaybee, are those the IRS TC3/4 big dawg bones your using? What drive axles are you using with the bones? Tower has the stuffs but are there any other shops which i can get cheaper? Thanks.
