I have switched over and did not measure the toe after the change. But as I remember it was pretty close to one degree. I had to re-adjust the front toe a little after. You got to try it Ron, it seems to help with the steering quite a bit, car is much more planted.

your right about trying it but actually have more steering than really needed at the moment. remember i have the ackerman plate, and also been using 2 degree C-hubs. the new pieces should be arriving soon now too. i have also used the F+1 plastic brace (i believe from the SD) cut down to give some toe.

been racing and doing alright..... can not wait until carpet season though

What are you using for 2 deg c hubs?
Word is that Stockton might be going to go to Rubber Tires. Too many complaints about foam tires. Expense, chunking blah, blah. I really liked it when we ran rubber, it was more fun then.

TiR (titanium racing) CVDs, although on the rear it appears he's used a std front driveshaft stub axle so that he can use the new rear hubs that are a lot thinner than the stds, meaning a shorter stub axle is needed.

so many changes, so many new parts, hows a guy to keep up,

i've been away from my bd for too long, took a month off from on road to get ready for off road nats with the yok bx, car was great,, i sucked, to much time away from off road, made the sdw arm change with the yok spool a month ago, and finally ran it it last weekend, i liked it alot, car was amazing. if you haven't tried it you should. but now all these new parts, and changes, i guess i better pay attention. lol

Hi all, Bought a BD a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it, great car and handles better as my previous RDX.
I bought the car 2nd hand (in mint condition :-) ) but it came with 2 diffs, on the smaller tracks I'm just as fast as with a one-way, but I miss a lot on on power steering out of the corner.
Asked a shop what to buy best, spool or one way and they told me most drive spool... so the TB spool is on its way.

The question is, what kind of setup changes can I expect?? maybe (prolly) more drag brake I presume...
What kind of extra wear will the spool cause me?

Greetz

Dirk

Hi, Hopefully someone can give me a quick reply here.

Does anyone know if the BD steering posts #BD-200P are the same as either the LCG #SD-202LPL or the SDW #SD-200LW posts?
They look the same as the SDW ones, but not too sure.

Thanks
