Default LIPO FITMENT

G'day Jeff,

I use the IP 3800 Lipo's in my BD and use the stick pack retainer the same as capellone24 has in his picture. I have placed the extra weight required on top of the battery, which meant that I had to raise the battery strap by two mm. I placed this spacer in the middle of the battery posts. I do not use the rear top deck brace.

I have not tried a trackpower battery, as I believe the only way to fit this is by taping the battery in, with the battery over hanging the chassis. I could be wrong, perhaps someone can show a picture of this fitted to there BD.

Martin,

Thanks for all the good info on your racing and BD setups.

Regards

Calvin.

two tips for you:

- don't use the kit c-hubs, use K4 or HB instead -> more steering

- use the old BD rear shocktower, not the bdm

Cool, I will try to get HB ones. I will try the shock tower too. Any advantage in the old tower?

Ok nice. Is it ok to run the old tower with the hi vol shocks or better to change back to normal shocks?

no the high vol bodies are fine

use tamiya 3-hole delrin pistons and most important make sure that the piston is fixed on the shoch shaft
either use CA to glue it to the shockshaft or use a small o-ring to take out anyslop
