When you change the hole on the C hub you need to move the spacer between the C hub and the steering hub, to top or bottom, or your ride height will be way off.

Francis... where do you race now? La Mirada next week... come join us. Oh yah, I still run my BD...

Fixed center and front one-way for me. Handling was also alright when I had the spool in, but I felt the parts wear was a bit much.

The fixed center pulley will give more agressive steering compared to the one-way pulley

My BD had its first race meet yesterday, and all I can say is WOW
The car is alot faster than my CGM and way more consistent as well

The only negative is that the underside of the chassis is all scratched

This was racing stock btw

Depends on what youre running. If youre running a fixed center pulley and a front one way, you're going to have more off power steering.
If you're running a fixed center pulley and a front spool, youre going to have a little more stability off power come push (good for loose conditions)!

I am thinking ahead when I race carpet. Stock motor, rubber tires, and more then enough traction. I guess I will order the fixed center and use it as a (dreaded) tuning option. Is there anything else I should buy while I am ordering from speedtech (seeing as horizon doesn't have BD stuff)? Fellow BD driver at the track said to pick up a spare rear belt and shock towers, along with the normal stuff (arms, hubs, hinge pins)

for tuning, i recommend getting some springs and the in-line steering knckles. as for spares, maybe the CVD pins.

the new arms of the BD are very resilient, haven't broken 1 yet.

Me either and I've taken some HARD spills. The INLINE STEERING KNUCKLES are definitely purchase worthy. Gave my car the entry steering that I needed -JB

If you look at the knuckles from the side, the inline knuckles have the top and bottom mounting holes right in the centerline of the knuckles. The 1 degree offset have the mounting holes offset 1mm toward the trailing arm

also the trialing knuckles have a "1" molded into them and the other a "0"
