No, using the longer ball studs in the rear on the inside hole. Shortest link position.

You might see a BD-BE Edition.

Right, you should grind 1mm off the bottom, so you can add up to a 1mm shim if needed.

hi any BD setup sheets for Outdoor Asphalt, with one way?

I am getting my BD ready to race.

Here are a few things I have thought of and learnt from reading through this thread.

1. Get the Masami Rear Shock Tower - whats the difference? different shock mounting locations?

2. Centre Locked diff.

3. Yokomo SDW Front Arms - gives narrower track width - should get more steering

4. get a tamiya servo saver.

5. team bomber F&R belts (masami edition) - are these strong belts? or just lighter? I am running mod so i rather some stronger belts. - Anyone got a part number for these belts?

Are these the same as the Yokomo MR-4TCBD Rear Drive Belt (Low Friction) and Yokomo MR-4TCBD Front Drive Belt (Low Friction) belts?

Anything else i should look at getting? Any shims/flanges/bearings i may need?

thanks

No problem Steve. Have to tell you your shop keeps getting bigger and better everytime I drop by.

BringItOn,
Do not run the center locked pulley unless you are running the spool. The car will drive weird with just the locked pulley and a one-way.

The box set-up works very good to start.

The worlds arms will give you a little more steering, great when running a spool and locked center pulley.

Team Bomber belts are softer in the begining, but if you soak your new stock belts in WD-40 for a couple of days, they're just as good if not better. The Low Friction Belts for the BD are the right belts.
Extra parts needed are steering hubs, O degree, 1 degree, extra set of arms, and Wide Front Bumper. The Wide Front Bumper will reduce the cost of buying arms, steering hubs and C-hubs. I would get a set of extra 6x10 wheel bearings. For some reason, maybe small wheel bearings, the front end of the Yokomo are tough on wheel bearings. All around, the Yokomo precision wheel bearings are very good.

I may have jumped the gun on the "car driving weird" with a locked pulley and a front one-way. I understand some people are doing that at So Cal and are having very good results. Could have been just the car at the time (wrong set-up) or the driver. I would give it a try and let us know how it is working for you. You have nothing to lose.

I've been running my BD with the locked center and front one-way for quite a while now and it works pretty good. And the car feels like it accelerates a lot faster than with a center one-way.
