Just get the hardened steel universals. The TC4's will just cause you headaches.

I don't know what an outdrive bearing is, but most likely it is your driveshaft being forced to turn more than it's capable of doing so.

all you need to do is turn the wheel all the way and you can see the cvd pin and set screw, if the pin is sticking out more on one side, loosen the screw push the pin back in and tighten the screw, btw, a little mip lock tight works wonders. a drop of oil wouldn't hurt every so often either.

and a little side info,

yesterday we ran a 12 hour enduro race with tamiya mini coopers what a blast.
total laps 2803. well that was the winning laps, our team only managed 2700 and something.

Mr. Wang did mention that his latest shipment of BD parts were stolen from the Washington terminal.

I have the BD at the moment, and have the LCG coming..

Simple answer is to get both

Hard answer is that shaft can be better for stock, belt for mod. To make things more confusing, this year the stock class at the australian nationals was won with a BD..

yes i know mr. ellis well

i will mainly be running stock, but i think mod could be on the cards with a big race meet that is coming up in the middle of the year.

i was running the BD before in stock & again was happy with the car.

but i also looking at the lcg.... either way it is sure to have lots of excel pretty bits on it.

I race 19t and practice w/ mod mostly and I've owned both LCG and BD

1. I like the BD's braking abilities over the LCG
2. I like the LCG's direct feel on acceleration.
3. The BD has more tuning options with the transmission.
4. The LCG has a more free tranny and should equal slightly faster times in stock.


Basically, they are the same car with different tranny styles. I favor the BD a little more b/c the slack in the belt puts a little less stress on the cvd's during a wreck. So I'd suggest the BD over the LCG (but not by much).
