The front end of my BD is sloppy, specially on the steering plate
Carefully glue the bearing to the plate with some CA

i have a question for all racers out there

i use a

yokomo BD,
ko 2343 servo,
ko VFS-1,
spektum radio system,
silver can 540 Johnson motor,
sanyo 1300 scr batteries (best punch, limited to 1500Mah for this class)

i have to use 120grms of weight to get to the 1500 weight limit

the question i have is that, instead of using weights to get to the weight limit, if i used a reciver battery pack for xtra weight would that

a. give more run time,
b. allow to gear up for better straight speed (for long open tracks)
c. effect servo speed,
d. work with the spektum system
e. have any ill efects that i havnt thought about,

any ideas would be cool

If possible, you could hook it up with the regular battery and that would boost voltage.

You will get more run time as the servo is being powered by the reciever pack. Check the VFS1 thread on how to connect it up. by the way that servo uses alot of juice!

In NewZealand "stock" is limited to 540 silvercan motors, 1500Mah batteries and rubber tires.

It is our most popular and competetive grade with even our top drivers racing.

You'd be surprised how well these 540's run at between 4.3 and 4.1 FDR.

I use a pro4 in the same grade. geared 88/51 giving 4.21 FDR.

The racing is very close and we are always looking for ways to maximise the performance with this setup.

I thought an LCG would be more suited than the BD for 540.

its all about sweet lines and no crashing, if you do then you might win the race, there is nothing you are allowed to do to the motors cannot tamper in any way so really it comes down to driver skill rather than money and best equipment, a good driver with okay gear can beat a bad driver with the most expensive gear

We race the johnson grey endbell in Aus...It is a competitive class(but you always get the one or two that try and cheat)but we use up to 3800 batteries and open tyres.Stock(27 turn fixed 24degree)is ultra competitive in Brisbane...15to 20 at a club meeting...the only down side to this is you have to use good gear ALL the time ,even club racing.

The silver can 540 is far cheaper then a stock motor and just about as fast if you know what you are doing, plus no brushes to replace or coms to true. At my local track I run 3.7:1 for ratio with silver can!

As for receiver battery packs, I have a number of them that I was going to try, but after looking at the consumption in my 1/12 after an 8 minute race, probably 10 minutes run time with a digital servo, I used 20mah, not worth worrying about to me and could cause more problems with no benefit.
