mr. jolly, vortex: thanks for you explanations...

has anybody tried just using the SD-202G (graphite steering) part only...will it have an effect??? my lhs has no stock of the C-hub carrier from the old tc car...
do i have to really use both parts to gain more steering???

The Ti screw with collar is great to use for the bottom king ping screw.
as the thread is finer and a bit longer.

But if u switch to the alum. knockle, you won't have any problem with loose king ping screw.

If the lower king pin is pulling out.. there is a newer king pin that used a spacer and a 3mm screw. part # sd-414TA ( i think but im not really postive, i have the part # at home)
Thanks for the help, I think its a little bit of both the steering block is breaking at the lower king pin location. I guess I will have to shell out the cash for the aluminum steering blocks.

there is also a screw and collar that is used in the cgm steering rack that is a very good fit and screws deeper into the block, also look at getting the wide front bumper kit, one of those will save you from most breakage on the front end.

Its here, its here, its finally here.

My BD has arrived, was purchased from Ebay, so I didnt know what to expect.
Included a 3mm chassis and top deck, and front diff and solid drive pulley, as well as the stock parts.

Everything is in very good condition, I am still going to give it a good tear down and rebuild to my spec. Came with stainless steel screws, I feel these stainless kits are inferior so I am going to replace what I can with my collection of stock Yokomo hardware.

Any set up tips or build tips???

It's BD's time to shine.

you could try mine. its probably not the best but it works for me so far...

Front:
0.5 front-rear toe suspension pin mount
0 toe front
2mm shims under both front suspension pin mounts
2mm shim on the front camber link (bulkhead)
front shock mounted on 2nd outermost hole
steering links mounted on the 2nd to the front-most hole

REAR
2 deg rear-rear toe suspension pin mount
no shims under the suspension pin mounts
0.5 deg toe rear hub carriers (placed on the wrong sides for less toe)
2mm shim on the rear camber link (bulkhead)
rear shock mounted on the 2nd outermost hole (BD shock tower, not the BDM one)

2deg camber on all wheels
shock lengh: 62mm
droop: 7f/5r (using Hudy droop blocks)
stock front and rear swaybars
30Wt oil all around (box stock internals)
Paragon FXII compound
Sorex 36R with Speedmind TypeB medium insterts
2 x 4mm holes punched in the wheels

for Power
IB4200WC 6-cell
Novak GTX
Team Express Co27

if and when you do try it, lemme know what you think... i'm still working on the set-up and would appreciate any feedback, comments.
