Pretty sure they're Excel Delrin outdrives.

Mike,

Have you tried the car yet? We raced last night at best buy parking lot traction is awesome. My BD is hooked up just put the fastest lap ... Will be racing next saturday night you should check it out.

I have a new Xray T2 but BD is a killer on asphalt.

Mike,

Those outdrives are made by Excel you can get them overseas in hong kong. I wanted to get one but hate to wait for it, they cost about $15 I'm fine right now with stock ones.

Hi,

@v0rtex: The spur gear is made by Robitronic (www.robitronic.com)
Or here
The chassis and the top deck are custom cut. The chassis is 12mm narrower then the standard one and flex a bit more (2mm version). I have a 3mm version for carpet aswell and this is really stiff.

@xxxkat: Yes, Excel makes them.

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

you could try Champ RC.
I have my shock tower from a german dealer.
http://www.rc-car-world.de/
You could contact him and ask if he ships overseas.

Cheers
Chris

The rear shock tower is awesome It does make small bumps seem a lot bigger though!!!! Its not the thing for a really bumpy track but mild bumps it can cope with. Very good turn-in and response.

On the Ackerman plate what seems to be the common setting, instruction says position 4, but somewhere I have read to use the second hole back?
Also what markings do you set the diff cam's too, I have 1 in from back on the front and 1 in from front on the back, if that makes sense
the rear belt feels OK but the front feels to tight (using black belts) what is the advantage over Bomber belts?

The bomber belts are suppose to free up the drive train more, but
i don't feel a difference. On the ackerman plate the further back you
set it the more responsive it will be and should carry better speed
on fast flowing turns but will not make tight turns as good as having
the rod end all the way forward on the ackerman plate.

As for the Diff cams just set it like the inst. and it should be fine.
You will be happy with the car for sure.

My suggestion would be to run the car box stock and see what adjustment
you need once you have tried it. The base set up is one of the best starting
point for asphalt.

The further forward you have the ball stud on the ackerman plate the more inital steering you should get, but you will loose a little exit steering.
Start out with the the cam marks at the longest marks on the mount, per the assembly instructions. You can adjust them as needed.
Bomber belts are supposed to be softer.

Good question. I just run the servo-saver from my old CGM on the BD - It saved the Ackerman plate a number of times

Various people have tried Alloy plates, I have one on my car at the moment. Its a little too soft for my liking but it beats breaking them all the time.

One of the guys I race with is looking into having some ackerman plates CNC machined, like the LGC plate. Problem then will be that the energy of a hit still has to go somewhere, back into the servo or popping off ball-cups no doubt.
