Really? He didn't ask for an explaination about the steering hubs, he was asking about the 0 deg C Hub and if you could use a 0 deg or 1 deg steering hub, and my answer was there were no 0 deg C hubs. There was a good enough explanation for the steering hubs by you prior to his post on the steering hubs.

On another subject.........
I gave the HPI c-hubs (4 degree) a go on Saturday, on ashpahlt running rubber. Car was absolutely planted and was setting excellent times. Only modding needed is to drill the outer hingepin hole on your wishbones to 2.5mm, and use HPI outer hingepins. The HPI hubs gave more steering lock and better geometry, the car felt a lot smoother and more progressive to drive than std, yet it also had more steering!!! Now that's a beau of a combination!

I'm thinking about that as well, are you using HPI C-hub with Yokomo steering knuckle or with HPI'one? I may get some to try next week.

Nah I just used std 0 offset steering blocks. I might get some HPI blocks though when yok release the new ackerman plate which is further forward, which would make use of the front hole on the knuckle.

Maybe this was discussed already, but what are people doing to make their BD's foam friendly? I already have the hard chassis and was wondering if a thicker upper deck was avalible. Other wise I know how to stiffen it, but it is a pain. I figured I would use associated Purple front and bronze rear springs with 60 wt front and 40 wt rear oil, but dont know what to do about pistons. I was thinking 3mm droop front and rear, but I am totally guessing on that also. And body G6, but thats simple. As far as the springs and oil, i am guessing too. Its all I could think of. To use a front diff do I just buy all of the rear diff parts and use it in the front? And lastly, does Yokomo sell a solid center pulley instead of the one way pulley?

With regards to the front ball diff, a rear diff fits in the front with no changes.

thanks a lot guys. My original intention when I bought the BDM was to use it as a rubber car, but my racing buddies talked me into racing foam...

and as I look at the parts list myself I cant find the solid center pulley.

I'm playing with a centre link steering system instead of the 2 links, at the moment.

Apart from making the car lighter to compensate a bit for the heavier brushless system, I also have plenty of ackerman now. However, does ackerman do much to help when you're running a spool? I don't think so.
