whats the largest spur gear that fits on the BD without hitting the brace? and whats the largest you can run without the spur being lower than the chassis?

On the yokomo gear chart it says the highest i can acheive is 10.18. is this without the brace or what.

Thanks!

nah, with the .5 upright and the inner 2 blok it has 2,5 per wheel ... 3 are always measured for one wheel, so if you want to have 3 per wheel you have to use 1 uprights

yep thats what i would have thought too, but when i checked it with my hudy setup station it read 3. on both sides, maybe i have a bad guage??

Maybe in reality it is 3' at the wheels as it's two at the hinge pin but then the blocks alter the angle at a different point. So if the hinge pin was 0 with the blocks it would be half at the wheels but this then changes slowly as you add degrees at the pin - no idea if that makes any sense or whether I'm talking utter balls!

The new diff bolts have less thread and dont snap as easy. On my cgm I could never run mod without snapping the front diff bolt. Also, I dont know alot about the the mbx 4, but Billy Easton gave me a diff bolt that was for the mbx 4 and it worked good. I should say that I havent snapped it yet.LOL Let me clear up when I say have less thread. On the old bolts the threads went almost all the way to the bolt head, now they only come a li bit above half way. THe reason I say try the other bolt off the mbx is b/c some hobby shops might have old stock and you would more than likely end up with an older style bolt. Sorry for rambling and hope this helps.

lol, actually i think i know what you are saying. i think i will put the split mounts on back on the front/ rear hinge pin and put the solid front/rear mount on the rear/rear and that should give me a true 0' and then see what i get with the .5 and 1.0 hubs.

one more question that i should already know the answer to. rear anti squat

with spacers under all the hinge pins mounts in the rear is raising roll center or lower the chassis, removing the shims from the rear in anti squat, and does what to the car, removing just the front shims is what, and does what to the car?? thanks in advance. ( i gotta get me one of those set up books i'm getting to old to remember all this stuff)

Having a rear anti-squat (shims on rear/front suspension mounts "0.5mm") will give you a forward bite. The car is easy to drive on high speed corners very stable.

I found that running anti-squat felt like it took acceleration/traction away from the car......so far I don't like the handling of the car with any kickup or anti-squat and just use shims all round to make a change.

I found this setup is the best I did on my car. with stiffer springs the car is a bullet. But hey it might work for me but not for you eveybody have different style of driving a car.

Yeap, you have either tweaked the car or bent the top shock mounting screw. Check-it out.
