Decided to go for a change and buy a BD to go with my SDW. Just ordered one from steve so hopefully i shud have it in a week or so. Got another KO speedo to go with it as well as a host of other parts as well

Thanks to [email protected] for providing UK racers with a easy site to navigate round, great prices and even better service.

Thanks

check out the pictures... i used tamiya shock shaft ends..instead of the yokomo ones. makes it easier to switch out springs instead of screwing/unscrewing into the arm. im guessing eventually the hole in the arm will get worn out and you'll have to replace the arm.

took my BD out for a few packs last nite and am very happy with the car. started with box stock setup which was actually fairly good.... after a couple runs the car began to 'settle in' i call it. so i'm looking forward to saturday too.

stop by and we can compare setups
Mine is basically stock except a couple changes to get a little more rear traction for the Yokomo E body.

The plastic ones had either loads of play or where dead tight!
Actually it is really easy to set the play without changing out the shims. Just loosen the screws on the hingepin mounts and press on it where you want it to go when you tighten them back up.

did this on a yr4 i had and it works. take your time and just think about it while looking at it, it will make sense
What will prevent the bushings from sliding in the pulley?

6 turn motors can turn snug fits into not snug fits.

Square also makes a sweet set of Teflon hinge pin spacers and Steve is going to look into getting some for us.
Hoep he can get some soon. They were only like $4.00 and you get 4 of the 4mm and 4 of the 1.5mm so there is enough to do a whole car...unless you have too much slop then I would suggest you get two packs...
Hope this helps.
Chris you got a part number of those shims? Hook a brotha up....LOL
