I doubt that the little steering slop is what makes the car feel twitchy.
If anything the less slop on the steering system the more senstitive it will be.
I would play around with the ackerman or check the spacers in your c hub if you have it reversed it will make the car sensitive to steering input.

Since you are making parts, can you make steele or aluminum outdrives?

The car kit comes with spacers to go above the steering rack to limit up and down movement - if you have lost yours or theyre too thin you can try using a phenolic washer from an electric motor (the orange washer on the comm end) on each side just under the top deck - you need to enlarge the hole in the centre to make them fit but they worked perfectly for reducing slop in one of my BD's.

well i tried the cutting the motor mount and removing the blue support, not a good idea for me, i run on high bite asphalt and it was a hand full. didn't feel like chasing setup to fix it, (was also testing 13.5 brushless at same time). maybe i'll try to find the setup later this winter

Hey guys,
I'm a proud new owner of a BD (although not new to Yokomo)

Any chance someone could point me in the direction of some good carpet setups? (stock rubber and 19T foam)

thanks!

This is a 3mm BD chassis and top deck I purchased for my BD a couple of years ago. This set-up worked great on carpet.

A picture of your work will help most of us to decide also.

Im interested too but would like to see pics first. I also would like to see the Batt position adjustable or a little more forward for carpet.

Also, Don't know if any of you chassis guys know it, if you move the batts a little forward, you should be able to move the batts in closer to centerline(Left to right)
