Sounds like you may be running the steering hub in the bottom hole on the arm, and the spacer is under the steering hub. Move the spacer to the top of the hub to lower the steering hub, this will stop the rubbing.

Thanks Pops, This is exactly what happened, I bought the car off a friend of mine and when I checked (just this second) that is what I found. Should I always run the hubs in the bottom (suspension pin) position. Well thanks again and I wish you and Alex the best of luck at the Nationals next week..

No not always, some set ups you can run it in the top hole, you just have to adjust the spacer to the bottom of the steering hub.
Thanks we will need it, only running stock so there really isn't a lot of pressure, just going to try and kick back and enjoy the race.

What is the part # for the SDW arms? I tried to run my BD on carpet and it was fast, but at least 3-5 tenths slower than my X-ray. I just couldn't get is to be as agressive. Any other suggestions?

Did that 10 years ago, but had an enormous heart attack last December - at the track. Got it all fixed now - a few more stents in the system, and a load more pills to take daily, but other than that, it's OK. We're getting old.

We have our end of season One hour Endurance this coming Wednesday (a holiday here) and Josh and I will be sharing one of the BD's for that.

Should be fun.

Hi all,

I'm looking for some help. I'm racing at Barham, UK in a couple of weeks and I need some setup start up advice. I'm going to be running Corally SSB's and a Team Almighty 19t Atlas tuned motor.

Cheers
Paul

Hava a look out for Chris Grainger, Olly Jefferies, John Pape etc set ups for that circuit. I'm sure you will find them in the CML wensite.

If not go into rcracechat.com. All of them write in there.

Good luck.

My answer to that was:
Sounds like you may be running the steering hub in the bottom hole on the arm, and the spacer is under the steering hub. Move the spacer to the top of the hub to lower the steering hub, this will stop the rubbing.

If you are running the spacer in the correct position on the steering hub, you would not have any rubbing problem.
