Read the instructions over before beginning, and build slowly making sure there is no binding in arms etc.

Races are won on the track, not by building the kit the fastest Having said that, the BD is a pleasure to build.

One thing to take note of is the diff adjusting cams, dont cut the lugs off the inside of them! they're used to locate the diff adjusters in the housing Sure only a few dollars to replace, but it could cause a heap of frustration.

All the usual things can be done, soak the belts in wd40, soak the bearings in shellite or motor spray and re-oil with a light machine oil before installing them in the car and you'll have a super free drivetrain

Also, be careful with the direction of the center one-way, its caught a few people out as thier cars are accidentally 2wd once they finish because the one way is backwards

Good idea to take the belts out of the packet and hang them up with a weight on the bottom. This allows them to go into there proper shape. They are packed in quite a small bag and thus come out in a rather odd shape.

Other than that happy building, build the car as per manual, using the kit oil and everything. Its a very good car straight out of the box.

If you run modified, keep the bearings in stock condition w/ the grease. After a few runs in mod, the excess grease will be thrown out, and the bearings will be free and less likely to lock up (compare to running on oil). If you run stock, go ahead and spray them out and put in some lightweight oil.

I try to practice w/ mods all I can b/c my track runs 19turn. I've lost a few of the smaller bearing in the hubs after I cleaned them out and oiled them. Then I put in a whole new set and after a few high speed runs, I noticed the extra grease was thrown out of the seal and the car had plenty of freespin. After about 20 runs on those bearings, they are still smooth and none have locked up.

Zach: The carbon plate does wobble a bit, it's not a fault. I know some people have used different bearings and washers to try and stop the wobble but I don't really see it as a problem.

1. Remove the bearings
2. Give super glue to the bearing holes on the steering plate
3. Put back the bearings.
