Or Do what I DO... Switch to either Corally or the Cyclone.

The front is going to rub if you are using the alum knockle. you can either true the rim or shave some material down from the alum. knockle. I prefer to use the graphite knockle and shave the knockle down a little bit as it easier to do then alum..

The camber link ball cup is going to rub also, so you might as well change the ball cup to the sway bar ball cup style on the C-hub and rear hub side.

Default ball cup rubbing

the ball cup will rub depending on what height the chub is set at.
I use the CHub upper hole (outer hinge pin) never rubs the arm and helps make ride height easier, especially when using getting the most from the tires...i can run my tires down to 54mm.

I like to use the HPI heavy duty ball cups they don't rub...the RPMs are bit bulky and will rub the inside tire.
but as aozip mentioned you can use the sway bar open top ball cups they are pretty darn strong and won't rub.

Hi

I live in Britain, I got a BD in the winter season for running on carpet, I am planning to run it on a track at kemble airfeild in Britain.

http://www.cotswoldmodelcarclub.co.uk/

If anybody knows the track or has a look at their website above can see what it is like could give me a basic setup for the car. I am going to run a spool. the track is very very fast and smoth.

Also I was wondering what hop ups people recomended, as I belive i have some hop ups on the car as I have the white belts instead of the black ones I think i got some others as will.

turtlemaster: 10.50 - 11.50 is the recommended gearing range for the 3.5 im using 11.20 in my BD. dont know the exact dimensions of our local track, but the fast guys lap in the mid 13's. for the first few laps, monitor your temp (both esc & motor) the ideal temp range is somewhere in the manual hope this helps

Hi

Have just been to my local model shop and been told both my chassis are unusable. Due to graphit coming off and them breaking.

Does anybody know where I can get a cheap one from.
I would prefer ifsombody knew someone selling one in britain.

I got a car for sale in the "for sale" part of the forum, you can always check it out, the chassis mounted has been raced for 1 month or so, and the other one is also in pretty good condition... Dunno what you wanna spend but you'd have a lot of spares ;-)

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.

Hi Chris, I know you are a busy man but do you have the info or pictures for the CGM Steering mod please..

Thanks

was looking through the BD set-up sheet (not the BDM one)... the fields confuse me. could someone be so kind enough to post definitions on each of the fileds (i.e. what parts are moved or modded to get what effect, etc)... thanks!
