I've talked to a few reps...but they didn't seem very interested. Even just a Yokomo 3mm top deck would be great. the stiff chassis is nice ..but still a bit of flex to it.
Double the upper deck.

Default tried it

tried it...using two standard decks...
i'm not the best driver...so tweak becomes an issue when stacking them up...
a one piece deck feel better on the car.

the type of carbon fiber is also an issue...the Yok material is made to flex in my opinion of course...
the Bd-002GH material doesn't flex as much but is the same thickness as the standard believe it's a different resin being used in the CF....

don't quote me on that..one though...

Default Carpet Yok

We are consedering doing a carpet conversion for the car the chassies upperdeck and diffrent blocks so you wouldnt havt to shave the hub carriers down to run 28mm tires.They would be lightwieght aluminum pieces.

We will also look at doing a chassies for the Lcg Car if we get the response we want.

I've always wondered why no major manufacturer's has made a carpet conversion for this car. Hope to see a finished product from you and good luck.

If you are running a front spool, it would be a good idea to run the fixed pulley so you can use your brakes which is a benifit of using a front spool.

the car came with a center one way, the lock center pulley is a option, when using a oneway, diff, or spool, i perfer the feel on the locked center pulley. i did try the spool with the center one way, didn't like it.

I know this is the BD forum, but I just recently picked up an MR4TC-SD and I am wondering if anyone still runs the shaft drive car?

I am trying to find a good starting point on setup for a some what bumpy carpet track.
Is there an SD forum on RCtech? What about on other rc communities?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

I have the top and bottom decks drawn out in CAD now. For the bottom deck would you prefer it milled out like the tamiya chassis so it will keep the same geometry or just have it as it is?

Let me know as i have been looking at getting these made up.
