Hey could you use some of that scrap and make me a fan mount that attaches to either the top deck/rear bulkhead or that scres whole in front of the motor.
I am sure if you made a bunch alot of guys would want them as I am racing in 100+ deree heat and even 19T's are getting too hot...sheesh it is a warm summer...LOL. But as for that mount please let me know...ASAP...there is a guy out of the UK who sells them for like $54.00 with fans but I don't need fans and he won't sell just the mount to me. Get back to me...
Thanks,
-Shookie <><

Here is the weight of my BD with the 3mm chassis and upper deck using the following stuff:Novak GTX with 2 power caps, KO 2344 servo, Spektrum Receiver, GP3300 battery, Cobalt motor, 2.25 Parma Foam tires, Parma Alpha body, and a front diff. 1420 grams or 50.1 ounces. I will see if I can get a set of rubber tires and figure out the weight difference for them.

Has anybody removed the king pin ball stud on the front and started using the original camber link positions on the front hub carriers. I found that by using the long ball studs like are used on the rear raised the ball stud high enough to use the original holes. This way I will be able to use the lower mount holes on the caster blocks without extra parts. It also puts less strain on the steering assembly and lines the camber link up better with the inner hole. And also gives more adjustability, I can now raise and lower the outer camber link position along with lengthening and shortening the camber link.

If you look at the pic of my car a couple pages back I did the exact same thing with my camber link ballstud

I plan on getting the BD in the near future. I race stock and i'm wondering if the rayspeed springs in the box are ok for stock.

also what's the thickness of the chassis.

I raced this past weekend with my BD for the frist time at SoCal in HB and the only things I changed from the kit setup were 40 wt oil all around, 2 deg. rear arm mounts, center direct pulley and put the ball studs on the steering rack upside down for bump steer reasons. Car worked great, just had somedriving errors.
