Default Chassis

I believe the standard chassis had a more cutout in the front section which resulted in a weaker front section.
The Masami had removed the cutouts in the front. It was mentioned on here that the Mchassis was a bit more rigid, but I have all three versions and find the standard and Mchassis are about the same in flex.

There are a few post about the chassis difference, do a quick search and you should find what you're looking with a few pics.

hope that helps ya

Hi guys, I have a BD with standard kit steering knuckles and just noticed that one has a 0 and the other has a 1 marked on them. Is there a difference?
Thanks
John

yes, the 1mm trailing knuckles do have less steering than the 0mm knuckles. so you'd better replace the knuckle with a 1 on with a knuckle with a 0 on it.

hi everyone,

i have the gold front roll bar for the BD, do you have to cut it down to make it fit, its very long and im sure will catch on the steering assembly? Or have i been sold the wrong roll bars?

I have a gold and silver one..... any ideas?


cheers

sounds like you have the rear sway bar instead of a front

Zach Try post number 6029 for pic of bulkhead mod. You grind away the most forward bottom point of the motor bulkhead and don't run the screw.

the kit oil is 450

put 1mm under the front inner ballstud and 1mm under the rear inner ballstud, droop maybe 5,5/5 or similar.
30wt oil sounds good

remove the rear side post and the rear brace for more flex.

use rayspeed blue springs up front, and rayspeed greens in the rear.

white/blue is rather hard
