Thanks for any information that will bring me back up to speed!
The MR4TC is not back in style. It is several years old and technology has passed it by. The new BD is far more advanced than the older TC. If you are not racing, then you are fine with the older car.

Default WHEW!! This is work...

Okay fellas these are the hop-ups that are on the car as follows-

*frt. adjustable body mounts
*wide plastic front bumper
*P-DUB foam bumper
*SQUARE top bumper plate
*Associated 'BIG DAWG' CVD's (frt.)
*Speedtech Spool
*COOL CAN FAN
*EXCEL Delrin diff
*Ti-CVD's (rear)
*Ti-screws throughout the whole car
*Ceramic bearings (except for the outermost frt. hub bearings<- 1 on each side)
*3mm bottom/top decks
*Yokomo dish wheels w/Yokomo Hot Lap tires & 037F Inserts
*LOTS of blue & silver bits...

Let me remind you that the bottom of the chassis is scratched due to the fact that the car has only seen asphalt. Let me also STRESS that the car is clean but SHOULD to be given a look-over. I haven't touched the car in about 8 months. All I did was spray everthing with motor spray, brush it down and put it away. I'm a 12th-scaler now
The car is also coming with a brand new freshly painted unused Mazda 6 & 2 sets of Yokomo Hot Laps tires w/inserts mounted on HPI wheels.
I'm asking $425 SHIPPED plus the paypal fee....or better yet make me an offer

Hi,

the Associated HD dog bones look really bling-bling.
Are they a direct fit? I'm not sure because of the bearings?
What parts did you use? I'm quite sure you posted it a few months ago but I can't find it.

Thanks
Cheers
Chris

You have to shave the inside of the hub so the bowl of the bone doesn't rub and you also have to 'flatten' (file/dremel) 2 spots on the pins so they slide into the slots of the outdrives...

The black steel CVD stub axles...if I'm not mistaken I believe they're from Associated...

im using the sorex 24 prebuilds all round as are some others. i did move the droops on rear form 4 to 5 and improved it. make me think maybe the oil isnt stiff enough in car and is trying to react to fast. im runnign 1.2mm x3 hole pistons and 50wt oil

actually going outdoors with car at weeknd get some tarmac time with it. first time with bd 7x1 and 1.224 ib4200 should be good.

Default BD Chris Grainger

Ok got a yokomo BD C.G. with all the hop-up parts on Looking through the setup sheets I have a few questions, On the front SDW wishbone it has two holes for the shock, but on the sheet there are three with the middle one ticked, does this mean outside on SDW arm? Also the setup sheet for Bedworth National is different to the one on CML's website for Bedworth National which one did he use? Lastly are RS14 pistons the same as Tamiya #3 pistons.
Thank you.

use the outer holes on SDW arms.
the set up on CML site is old.
tamiya #3 has 1.1mm holes, while RS14 has 1.2mm holes.
