Where can I get hero sieko wheels, locally?

Lem, Im using a fixed center spool. The Mazda Speed 6 is different from the Mazda 6 and I am using the short shock ends with the Yokomo high volume shock body....

Wheel base which I forgot to mention in the previous post is
Front arms all the way back and Rear in the middle...

So there is a resurrecting interest in the car... It just works and is pretty maintenance free......

King of Bmain, Sorry but I don't have Billy's set up.... Your car is almost there when I was watching your heat it did look good, You just seem to need a tiny more steering....


Oliver Clipper one of the locals brought out his BD for the Weekend and almost got TQ in the second round for the 10.5 class and he told me he is bringing out his other BD also. One for 13.5 and 10.5, his car was really dialed... I ended winning the 10.5 class from 2nd in the Grid and Ron C. also driving a BD got 2nd, Oliver forgot to charge the Lipo on his BD and ran the Main with another car and didn't fair so well but all our cars are consistently good and easy on tires.... All three of us are running pretty close in set up.....
Yeah, i forgot to put the lipo back on the charger after the third qual. Too bad too cause I ran out the remaining charge in practice after the races and my car was really good. What was interesting...I was .01 from taking tq in the second round and my car was really good. I made one change for the third qual...went to 2 degree rear block from 2.5 and the car was very loose. It was very hard to drive...i had to be real easy on the wheel. Went back to 2.5 and it was great again.

I'll be sure to keep an extra lipo charged for the next race.

Francis, thanks again for the setup help.

Oliver

Thanks, when you have time, what is the measurement of your shocks? are they the same for both front and rear? ARe you using the plastic sprieng retainer or aluminum?

The high volume shock body is the old shocks from BD/LCG? or is it a new one?


I know your set up is pretty much dialed at BCR, so will copy your set-up and go from there.

Thank a mil!

You finally got the BD's out again! Glad there working for you. I sure wish I was closer to you guys down there, I have been running in camarillo but the turn out has been light, not even enough for two sedan classes so I had to start running 12th to make it worth the drive there. The BD has been working great for me, although I see my setup is alot diffrent than Francis, If I set it up like his it would be way loose, Looks like all the differences in mine make it tighter. I wonder if it is because there is that much more traction at BCR, although traction was great in camarillo yesterday and I didn't change anything.

it's suppose to be triple digits this weekend so the Reedy will be a hot one this year.

You know I'm installing my fan before this weekend's club race. It's already pretty hot today so this weekend should have track temps in the 140's his isn't the Tamiya track anymore. Everyone will be well tanned after this event
