Mike Ivy,

That Demon 3mm chassis has the same cut out like original? I've seen some BD chassis without any hole on electronic side.

hi all, here is a pic of the updated spools from patrick jasmin. Old ones were great but these looks just fabulous. I will try them next weekend. My old spool have 6 races on it and absolutely no wear on the outdrives!!

for a while i thought that the yoke alum spools were having durability issues... i'll be testing those setup tips you gave me in the tracks... car needs a little more tweaking especially when using those wwwweeeeennnnnnggggggg!!! wwwweeeeennnnnnggggggg!!! motors...

It's all in your throtle fingers guys I've been using the same plastic rear diff since winter season and up to now with no issues. I've been runnning both mod and 19T. I guess I just got so used to driving my car like this like I was driving my 12th scale.

hi Guys
What You guys think about Aluminum Diff Halves ??Are they better than standard plastic ones or Is that waste of money to go for that nice looking Blue Alloy ones....Also Same question for Steering arms and rear uprights does it worth to buy Team suzuki alloy ones or Graphites are strong enough???
Thanx in advance for kind replies....

alloy parts in your suspension is a full waste of money.
unsprung weight you know.
Plastic is good .

The alloy outdrives are pretty good, but i recommend to make blades fit the outdrives as they are usually not ment to be used

um no

you have to widen the slots a bit in order to use xray, hotbodies or tamiya blades.

if you don't you will notice heavy wear on the outdrives in no time

I got it now but that looks to me a bit long story I think it's better to carry on with Plastic diff outputs...They may not as strong as alloy ones but much cheaper than alloy ones and they dont need any mod...
Martin thank u very much for your help...
Cheers mate

Mike is this what you have seen? This is a chassis that I produced right after the BD came out. There are probably 10 or so out there. It was actually CNC machined from 3.17mm or 0.125" Very stiff. I also did a top plate as well.
