The worlds are a long way from now so we will have to wait till then.....

On another note my BD has been working pretty decent for the last couple of race meets and I just changed my paint scheme which always makes me feel like I have a new car....lol

I only have the CGM steering crank but not the MR4TC hub, is it still worth to try the steering modification without the 4TC hub?

Do you use any thin Yok Hex in the front to make more steering?

Thanks.

- i do not make the car any narrower as usually the only thing you achieve is,
that the wheels rub on the wishbone

- yes i use a 0,5 block and the wheels are 0,5 open

- you need mr4-tc hubs to make the modification work
as it was already said, the main goal of that modification is to gain more
lock -> necessary steering

the setup is a good basic startingpoint, but i still do further tests

How are you doing Martin... I've been using a set up by Chris Grainger but it's pretty much really close to what you sent me a few months ago. I think thats a good thing because it just confirms that the set up is a perfect starting point for most places outside of Yatabe.....the main thing with this set up that i found was to mount the wing further back especiallly running the Speed Six Mazda...

from the rearwardmost point of the bodyshell (usually the middle of the rear bumper) to the rearmost point of the spoiler

Martin,

Do you use alloy diff halves? If so, what do you do to the driveshafts to prevent damage from the steel dogbone pin.
Also, do you use Worlds TIR driveshafts in the front when you use the standard wishbones which are 2mm wider?

TIA

Don

I've been using the standard yok axles front and rear but used the aluminum yokomo bones and the pins seems to be holding up fine after one straight month of racing on weekends.... I usually race 10.5 brushless with a minimum of 3 practice rounds before we run another 3 rounds of qual and 1 main...
I like running the plastic spools for spec racing since it seems to have more steering.....
