Ceramics are nice because they last a really long time, if I end up liking this car, I'll put a set in.

I'm running a 104 tooth PRS gear, I dont see any need to go bigger personally.

I am planning on racing the whole JBRL series, should be a lot of fun. Do you know if you just sign up at the track, or if you have to sign up prior?
Here is where I disagree with Jimmy. You have to sign up at the tracks but the worse part is the sign ups begin @ 6AM....Man I have to drive more than hour for almost all of the races...That is one lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng Day.

I haven't measured mine I just built them by the book. I did notice that I had to use the longer shock mounts on the front otherwise I could no higher than 4mm ride height. Once i went with the longer ones for the front everything was copasetic.
I think I will just stick with the 105 it covers all right ratios for stock and 19T (5.25-8.40) So to go larger would be a waste since it just adds weight to rotating mass.
One casualty from this last weekend.....Broke a rear diff...well really I just overtightened it and stripped the nut mount....Oh Well I had some Acer ceramic diff and thrust balls just sitting around, rebuilt the diff with the spare SD diff halfs I already have....(thanks again yokomo)....And viola....Super smooth rear diff now.....Just a hint....Break in your diff before you run it.....I believe Randy posted about how he breaks in his belts.....(Great to knwo since I never owned a belty 10th scale...Anyhow it really helps the diff to also get some workout too....I picked up the diff break-in tool from niftech which attaches to your dremel makes a world of (diff)erence.....LOL ultra pun intended.

do you think its worth glueing the nut into the mount???

is the main diff bolt the same size as an SD?

i was doing up an associated TC4 one the other night and it just snapped like plastic, when i looked at it it was tiny! very thin indeed.

thanks Randy
just curious..does the car come with the front one-way or front diff?... I'm assuming the one-way.
Good thing I didn't get rid of my RS springs...

Ok let me make sure that I have this right. The springs that come with the kit are rayspeed springs?? Or are they yoke springs?

Mr. Shookie - can you provide me the link to the niftech diff break-in tool.

Last question, does yokomo selll a diff set that will fit the BD or do you have to piece everything together??

Thx

The BD comes with RaySpeed springs.

And you have to build our own diff from all the SD parts minus SD diff gear (duh) hehe..... But still waiting on the BD spare parts so that I can get a diff pulley. Also note though... you'll need to wait for a locked/fixed center pulley/spur mount. Or you could just drill a hole through it and pin it to the center shaft.

Yes it does. The front pulley is pinned to the center shaft. And the spur mount/rear pulley is a oneway unit. However, the center shaft has 2 pin holes. Only one is used for the front pulley. That tells me they are designing a locked/pinned rear pulley/spur mount.

When building the shocks you want them to be about 64mm on front and 62mm on back. You get this length by unscrewing the shock end or modifying the shock internals (ask Matt Howard how). You will need this length in order to get the droop correct when running small foam tires. It's not really anything you need to be worried about; just remember long enough to get the correct droop. Droop screws will ultimately adjust how far the shocks extend.

just trim the internal spacer leaving the triangle piece and your shocks will be plenty long.
