Yep Mark E, southend and snetterton. Have you had any issues with the BD with the back swinging round? alot of other cars have not had this.

Thanks

Mark

Nah, mine's normally pretty safe. How old are the tyres? I find that the back does start to go slightly when tyres are getting old.

What are you running toe in wise? 3 and 0, 2.5 and 0.5?

front shock in the middle hole / rear shock in the most outter hole.
.5 ~ 0 toe in front / 3 toe in the rear

thats what i run last weekend.

Thanks Ming! I'll maybe drop front shock oil a little Im running 45 in front. I probably won't be at the Express race (although not sure yet) I can't see spending $50+ for entry to go to a race where I have to put new tires on every heat to be competitive. We'll see though.

The hard chassis would be better on carpet for sure. If the outdoor track has pretty good grip it should work very good there too. Go for it...

I think that it would be better!!
But the BD-002HG although it is stiffer than the standard chassis is the same thickness ( 2.5mm) , so it must be made fron another type of carbon!!!

My understanding it's the same type of materials, it's just layered differently to make it stiffer.

Default stiff

the stiff chassis is quite a bit more stiff...
and with the thickness being the same...you won't have to make many changes to setup...
if you want to get the flex back....take the screws off the top from the steering post..and use grubs..give ya all the flex back...if ya ever run on carpet that deck is a must.

wish they would make the same for the LCG.

Arms are compatible with each car. New arms are stronger. SD suspension mounts will work on the BD. The new one piece suspension mounts are better because they are solid and are 1mm lower, so you can shim the suspension up or lower it.

It's fine the king pin and the 3 holes on the C hub are just 4 different adjustments you can make to the camber links.
