may be the shock mount screw is screwed in at an angle into the arm. thus changing the length between shock and tower

Ok thanks John, I ran the car last night with a similar setup to Chris's most recent tarmac setup that i got from him after West London - purely to give me some kind of base. Car was awful which i kinda expected. Lots of turn in oversteer so any suggestions of a base to work from would be great.

thanks

The screw holes in the shock tower are big enough to allow some movement of the tower. Some people have made countersunk holes for the two upper screws and I will also do that to our BDM's.

Another tip (if screws are not not countersunk) - before retightening the shock tower screws hold it from the middle and lift up and then tighten the screws. This way the tower will not tilt as easily when the car hits a track marker etc.

Anyone know where I can get an SD-202G other than Yokomousa? Also, is the D-004 the same only aluminum? The drift cars really just a CGM anyway right?

one "trick" to free-up the drive train before on the XXX-S and XXX-4 was to cut out every other tooth of the BELT, and this really did reduce the friction, thereby freeing-up the drive train... im guessing this is just a variation of that, to make the BD's drive train even more lighter for spec racing.

i dont think that the drive ratio would change since you are not changing the drive pulleys. but would that modification increase the wear of the belt since less teeth would support the force on the belt? wouldnt want to try that on my first belt driven car... hehe
