I would have to run the car before I sold my baby. This has been the best sedan I have ever driven and I've owned them all except the BD, TOP, Kyosho. I will never run the Kyosho though. I'll see you next weekend and maybe you should leave me your car after the Reedy so that I can test and tune

Did Jaime spike your drink or something Clint? Because he has the only BUSTED BD I know around these parts.

True but he is always fast in the stock class. Imagine what I could do with the car

Default BD STEERING MOD

OK, I have trolled through about 60 or 70 pages of this thread and read about the BD steering modification.

I have fitted the CGM steering parts and now want clarification on the advantages of using the following:

HPI 4 degree C hub and HPI Knuckle with the worlds a arm.

HPI 4 degree C hub and Yokomo O inline trailing knuckle, not sure which a arm

MR4 4degree C hub with the Yokomo O inline trailing knuckle with the standard a arm.

I know I read that Martin uses the HPI parts front and rear, what are the advantages of this. Also if you can not get the 0.5 rear front, is the 1.0 rear front worth using.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Calvin

Caltek- the CGM mod and MR4tc c-hubs basically gives the car more steering travel vs stock and IMO is the biggest difference in getting the car to work with a spool....

Everything else you posted is prefference.......

0- yokomo knuckle more steering vs -1 smoother steering and makes the car feel like it has more caster....

-.5 and -1 front/rear suspension mounts makes the car turn in harder....
I personally went back to stock since the stock seems to finish the turns better....

I can't comment on the HB swap since I don't have experience with it....
