I have a spare standard chassis, top and lower deck.
Keep the servo stays it's easier to adjust with the different types of servos.

What pinion and spur combinations to use for a hot mod motor, 48pitch?
Currently using 18t pinion and 84T spur for Orion V2 8x2. I just got a 7x1 Cobalt. Smallest pinion is 17T and biggest spur that will fit in the BD, I think is 84T.

What combination are you guys running? Any suggestions?
By the way I run on a track with pretty long straights and very twisty intermediate sections.
Thanks.

I was going to keep the inner one but lose the outer one as its tricky to get that miled out. so if you put servo tape on the underneath of the servo and use the inner mounting point. I used to do this without any problems. I have found an old chassis that i will check it to.

The standard roll-bar setup is the 'lower' position. The 'upper' position is when the roll bar goes the other way and goes up over the top deck.

Sort of like this


Thats how I understand it to be anyway, and I don't know how you mount the roll bar like that, or why you would do it. But I have seen a SD been run with the roll bars like that.

Hi All

I plan top post some pics of the CGM steering mod this week and explain what it does, there seem to be many questions about at the moment about various parts of the BD, I don't get on here as much as I would like, so please post some Questions for me over the next day or 2 and I will try to answer as many as possible

To reply to the Question above, the Kit roll bar is the "lower" roll bar the above one is one that goes over the top deck from the old MR4. We never use this any more.

Chris

Hey MR4-TC BD Guys; I was looking at the Masami Special on the Yokomo site and I`ve seen markings(lines) on the Lower Bulkhead.
-What does those markings(lines) mean?

I`m thinking about getting a Masami Special; it`s a nice looking kit.
-I can put the Electronics from My Pro 4 into the MR4-TC BD.

Thanks

Take Care

Default MARKINGS

Guy,
I believe the markings on the lower bulkhead are to help adust the diff height I also use it to adjust the belt tension on both sides equally. hope I'm looking that correct markings. the markings are in both the rear and front bulkheads.

The BD masami is a great car my only suggestion would be to get an extra set of steel CVDs and immediately replace to front (leave the blues as spares for the rear).
And get a full set of springs, the corally spring set fit rather well.

AleX
I've been looking for the fan mount also for quite sometime, speedtech never has them in stock.
