The rest are hairpins where I need steering but I have to concentrate not to turn too much on the wheel in the fast parts because I loose too much corner speed.

@Turtlemaster: There is 4mm spacer in the front of the arms.

@Francis M.: Send me a PM and I will change my CAD drawings for you a bit...

Cheers

thanks speedy, After you posted what you did to your steering rack and c hubs i did take a look at my bd vs my friends RDX and you are right the rdx has more mechanical throw.

two guys at the local track took Corally RDX steering racks and installed them on their BDs running 19turn foam...they turned the servo sideways also and they were getting faster lap times like that

Hi,

@Francis M.: That's exactly the point. If I want more steering I can get it. And if not... then not...

@R/C Anonymous: I heard that twice now and can't imagine how it works. Do you can take a photo and show it up here?

I remarked a problem with more steering throw. I glued a set of tires for tomorrow on JB wheels. The problem is at full steering throw the rim will rib against the A-Arm... but no problem for me and my Dremel... Problem fixed...

Cheers
Chris

I raced my BD on a tiny carpet track (36 ft X 45 Ft) today against x-ray's and Corally's. The longest straight was only 12 ft long. I didn't need to have 100% steering throw to steer as well or out steer any of the other cars; in fact I ran 87% steering throw. I can't imagine needing to modify my car so it steers more; it already steers to much. Not to mention the more your wheels turn the more speed you will scrub off; slowing you down. I easliy took TQ and the win; and I was the only non Corally or X-ray car in the A-main. By easily I mean 2 laps on 2nd place a "Corally."

Hi,

@mike ivy: Already built in.

@kmorast: What class are you running? I only run modified and sometimes 17T. In modified im always looking to improve steering but in stock/17T you have to concentrate on keeping corner speed. There you don't need that much steering throw.

Cheers
Chris

I notice that one too It happens since the day I have yokomo SD.......

Anyway, I cure it with super glue..... give it a liitle glue on the hole pin and the screw. Becareful okay..... don't let the super glue flow to rotating mechanism.

i had the same problem originaly when i ran my yokomo sd, but i solved it by changing to the tir cvds avaliable from www.titaniumracing.com and didnt break a single bit of them indoors or outdoors. or you can use the hardend universals, i got mine from speedtech of them and didnt break a single one.

Does anyone know if the rear sway bars are available from rayspeed , or the part number for the genuine yokomo sway bars??

The part number for the front rayspeed sway bars is RS-25 right??

Wow! $170.00 on pins. No wonder they are usually out of stock, b/c you've bought them all .

Either take large shrink wrap and cover the axle where the pin goes in/out. OR buy Yokomo hardened universals OR buy TiR cvd's

Hi,

@kmorast: Ok, if it works for you. I took out a bit steering throw today (grip came up) aswell because the rear came around when I turned to hard on the wheel.

@jamie814340: Like mentioned befor you could use TiRacing or Yokomo universals or you could use the pins from Alex Racing for Barracuda. I used them in my LCG and never snapped a pin. Or you do it how I did and use a thicker pin. 1.5mm hardened steel or spring steel will do it...

@Zacharopoulos: RS-25 for the rear Rayspeed swaybars and ZS-412FSP for the front Yokomo swaybars.

Cheers
Chris

When I've snapped a pin and had no spares, I've used an allen key. Come to think of it, one of my fronts is still an allen key
