Has anyone been able to fit the SDW front arms on the BD. I believe this setup will give the BD better steering. Please let me know.

Also, has anyone seen Billy Easton's car from the Reedy race. I was interested to know what the setup was or if he had any changes to the car.

Hi,

yes, I fitted them and tested it on carpet. Unfortunately I broke one and stopped testing. I thought that steering was a lot more agressive and the car felt better.

Cheers
Chris

Can you tell me how you did that because I believe the rear block(front end) will hit the belt. I am very interested.

Plenty of people have

CML Distribution in the UK have a 'Grainger Edition' BD kit that comes with the SDW front arms standard - its a well known trick and works well from the reports i've heard

The arms should just slide on in place of the BD arms, using the BD blocks.

Hi,

I still used the same suspension blocks as with the standard A-Arms but dremeled away some material at the inside of the SDW A-Arm.

Cheers
Chris

Billy's car at the Reedy race had several prototype parts that would not allow his setup to cross over to the exsisting car. His car looked very good on the track but he had some poor luck which forced him to drop out of i believe 2 races.

He had new alum shock tower mounts that had four different positions to mount the inner camber link - very nice. Then there were some new hinge pin mounts that also looked nice. Not to mention the other refinements.

Did you do anything the get the front track(like wheel spacers) width back to normal or did you just leave it along so the front track was narrower?

thanks

Hi,

I tried both. But especially on carpet I liked the narrower front more because I got more steering.

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

@Zacharopoulos: Where do you see different pulleys?

@mwoods: I think they are the same spring rate as the old Yokomo ones. Just longer.
Orange 18.87
Green 16.06
Pink 14.93
Yellow 14.71
White 12.94
Blue 12.12

Cheers
Chris

Not sure that the rates are the same, could be close, but they are progressive springs and the old ones were not.
