I guess you could use a thinner spacer under the top kingpin, but I don't want have anything rubbing against the top kingpin, which could loosen up the kingpin with steering action. There is little or no play in the top kingpins anyway.

Yer it is a great car, mine was so smooth to drive at West London Ko gp. There were alot of Bd's in all 3 classes that were very quick.
Rob miller set Tq and a new track record in stock, i got 5th with mine.
In 19t Stuart Cann did very well wining 1 of the finals from 3rd on the grid and came 3rd in another to get 3rd overall.
In mod Chris grainger was very much on the pace, but was very unlucky in the 3rd final, looked like someone turned a transmitter on costing him 3rd place.
I gotta say im very please with mine, had a few problems at 1st with hubs stripping and snapping pins in the front driveshafts, but ive overcome these by using suzuki alloy front hubs and TIR worlds driveshafts. Other than that its been awesome, not broke a single thing and ive gotta admitt ive had sum pretty spectacular crashes

Erm, about the kingpins. When you buy the TI king pins it says to put one at the very bottom outside the hub carrier and one at the top inside the carrier. If you install them like this but run the normal ballstud/kingpin the steering binds...

How are you guys running them?

Phil, slight correction (and trumpet blowing), I actually finished 2nd at the KO

Paul, to be honest I think you only need to run the Ti kingpins on the bottom, just use the standard kingpin and washer on the top. I've only ever run with the inline kingpin on the front so have never experienced your problem, it's only ever the bottom kingpin that causes problems though so the standard 1 in the top should help your problem.

I tried running the standard ball/kingpin on the top but when i tightend it up the steering went stiff. should i follow the spacing instructions off the BD manual or the TI instructions?

I would try now but ive just finished a full rebuild and my hands hurt

Also, whats the part number for the spacers on the center pulley shaft? (fixed, if it makes any difference)

Right, think I've got ya now. To run the kingpin/ballstud you have to have the washer under the steering arm, not hanging out the bottom of the caster block. You then run the caster block in the lower position on the wishbone.

It is possible to have it the other way round but it requires some dremelling or funny spacing. Word is Yokomo should be bringing out a longer ballstud/kingpin to give you both options.

Can't help you on the pulley I'm afraid, don't even have 1 myself yet.

Thanks!

For now i will just run both TI kingpins and run a standard ballstud in the holes used by the SD.

I hate shims, i always loose them. The pulley assembly is so loose that when i acclerate hard the pulley slides to one side and makes a not very nice noise. i can run it but it sounds like my SD :P

Cheers Phil.
