Talking WOW

I ran my BDM with the Pro4/HB front end this weekend at our final ORL2 race. It was awesome. I TQ'ed with almost a lap over the field. Screwed up in the main though and hit a plowdisk and broke my titaniumracing spool and some other parts.

The front end is a must if you want steering.

Has anyone had breakage problems with their spools as late and what front drive axles is everyone using?

I was using longer upper link ( 2nd hole count from outside ) and would like to go back to original setup printed in the manual ( 3rd hole count from outside ).

What about droop you are suggesting ?

Hi all,

I told you I'd report in when I had my TIR spool.
Well, drove it for a day yesterday and it is awesome. I drove it with the delrin outputs on a medium- high grip asphalt track and you cant even see any wear on it!!
The team Bomber spool I first had, I had to replace the blades on the axles every 2 batteries with some luck. Sometimes even 1/ battery -> 2.5!!!

You can order different/ replacement outputs from here: http://www.titaniumracing.com/sectio...=5_Spools.html

They shipped fast to me... (off course me being in Europe...)

I did have problem using yokomo plastic spool it keeps snapping on me in half during powering considering I only run 19T. I then switch to shooter spool works great. But now I just received my new delrin YOKOMO spool I haven't tried it yet, because as of now I went back running oneways works like a charm.

What actually do you mean with the term "front end", as english is not my mother tongue I do not understand such a word. Maybe you can explain it.

I found the Yok Plastic spool to be very fragile. If you are a very smooth driver who never makes a mistake, it will work for you. But it's not very forgiving for those of us who hit a few dots on occasion. I've snapped two in half. Both within the first minute of a race. I bought them both at the same time though. I suppose it is possible there was a bad batch

Front end is the PRO4 C hubs and knuckles(steering) along with hardware like ballstuds, bushings(steering), etc.
