The HD spool for the BD and 415 are available in 2 options:
1 Pro competition come with Delrin cups on the pro version which also incorporate our spool sleeves.
2. Competition spool come with ally cups as standard

both are interchageable.

Essentially outside we use Delrin with sleeves for indoor we use Ally.

With respect to blades - they give understeer. Adam rogers and I tested them on the 415ms back to back and the maniax one with the blades gave terrible understeer. The blade although a great idea by cecil schumacher, cause too much drag entering and exiting corners which upsets the handling. Years ago when there was poor grip and less torque they were a great idea. Now I think they have come to the end of their life.

Unfortunately steel pins are the most efficient way of transmitting power.

Ok, so im running on carpet in Modified with the BD this weekend.

Im running TRC 26mm blue (40 shore?) foams. Im just looking at the gap between the wheel and the steering hub and its only about 0.75mm. Should i run a thin spacer on the front wheels?

Also, i have Rayspeed yellow on the front and blues on the back. Does that sound too soft? medium/low grip carpet. Running a spool.

Shouldnt need space it to with 26mm foams, but if you swap to 28mm foams you might need to try and find some Suzuki Alu knuckles because these have a little more room.

Yeah a bit too soft imho.. I've run Rayspeed reds on the front and Yokomo green's on the back on carpet in 27t Stock, car was around 2 or 3 tenths off the pace per lap. I wouldnt mind going up to Rayspeed greys on the front next time perhaps, havent yet because my LHS has been out of stock

Was running Ellegi 40's on the front and 35's on the rear, ball diff in the front and locked center pulley.

I have all the rayspeed springs, do you think Red on the front and blue on the back. Its not ozite, its kind of a laid material stuff. but its still grippy. but compared to some high grip carpet tracks i would say the grip is medium/low.

I think grey would be too hard?

In that case, grey could be too hard for you.. Still, i'd start on the side of hard and adjust softer if needed, but thats just me

Default springs

Speaking of springs, I know I read this somewhere but I can't find it now. Is there a diffrence in the inside diameter of the Yokomo vs Rayspeed springs? If so, which one is which? I have some springs that came with my car and I am trying to figure out what the rates are. They fit nicely on the lower spring retainers but are very sloppy on the upper retainer/adjuster. Also, I have read some of the rate charts that are posted here and the one that comes off the Bd site or manuel and they seem to be different. Anybody know which one is right?

If they are loose at the top they are Rayspeed springs.

Wow, fast repy, Thanks.

I just went back and it seems that there might be confusion on the yokomo springs, but the rayspeeds seem all the same. I guess it won't matter as I have the rayspeeds.

Is there a trick to getting them to fit better, or is everyone just running them loose on the top?

Thanks again.

Race mostly on permanent tracks. Kind of close
Front
Spool
Silver swaybar
1.5 deg camber
instead of 1mm shims under the suspension mounts using .5mm shims
front droop 10
4mm spacer in front of arms
upper hole in caster block
Rayspeed white springs
450 oil #3 piston shock length 61.5mm
shock mounted in middle hole of the Arm and 3rd hold from the outside on the tower.
Rear
Locked center drive gear
Black upper swaybar
1 degree reversed rear hubs
1 deg of rear camber
3 deg of rear toe with 1deg hubs reversed = 2 deg of total rear toe
rear droop 4mm
4mm spacer in front of rear arms
Rayspeed white springs
400 shock oil #3 pistons
camber link on 3rd hold from outside rear hub
Shock mounted in 2nd hold from outside on the shock tower and outside hole on the arm.
This works very well on a high traction high bite track, car still pushed a little too much last time out.
