Where did you get the Delrin diffs Randy?
I think the BD is better suited for asphalt but if you maybe bought a second top deck to add to the ridgity it should do well also.
Hope this helps

Oh the delrin diff is HPI and you can go back a few pages for the other items needed to complete it.

Rob- EA motorsports is supposed to be working on a "carpet" chassis for the BD that should stiffen the car up considerably.

I bet Yokomo is going to release either a 3mm chassis or a CGM type tub.

I think they will release a tub chassis for it. Also, if they do then this car will be like a MR4TC Special but so much better

About the Delrin outdrives.. once you have bought the parts in your sig is that all that is needed to complete it? no filing or anything?

yes...that is all parts that is needed to build the delrin diff.
build it as a normal diff...
and don't forget the blue lock-tite on the diff screw threads.
I used the SD thrust balls and plate even though the TC3 one's will fit.

If this were true, then I will definitely want this car than the BD, I have a problem driving with CF chassis, I tend to drive slow, careful and uncompetitive, avoiding to scratch the bottom, call it weird but thats just me! hehehehe And that's even with n underchassis protector!!!

YOKOMO GOD's: any truth or rumor to this??

I haven't heard anything about a tub chassis. It took them a year to come out with the CGM after the SD release so don't expect anything too soon. They just finished up the BD and the next project is finishing up the LCG conversion for the SD so they're already pretty busy.

Thanks for the input!!!
A new batch of shipment will come in a few days!! People have been raving about the BD, even people with new kits, once they try the BD----- they get one!!!! OH well, good thing I'm still busy with work and still busy saving up for it! I just noticed that my CGM is a year and 2 months old!!! hehehehe

I have been trying to only bring the nessesary items but sometimes everything seems a nessesity.LOL

About how long is it between heats? There is only five or six classes as I heard Jimmy might trough in 12th and other classes if there is more than five people so I was curious.
Thanks Again
Stephen <><
Just depends on how many people show up. I heard their offroad race went from 6am to 11pm...
