the universal design like the hardened universals (ZS-010FH for example) also works better with running a spool. For the BD, we might have to experiment with ZS-010RH since the dogbone sits in the middle of the outdrive and not towards the edge like the MR-4TCSD, so the ZS-010FH will be too long (but ZS-010RH is shorter so it might work)

Also, Tamiya anti-wear grease helps tremendously with universals when running spool

Steve, if you planning on trying rear universals up front it won't work, the bearing spacing is different front to rear in the hubs.

And the regular front universals are too long even if the end where it meets the 1 way is shaved down?

It's offical. I am the proud new owner of a BD.

You guys just starting with the stock setup for carpet? I may put in a diff in the front instead of the one way.

Steve, any word on when yokomo will have the locked center shaft/gear/pulley?

Are you running foams or rubber tires?

It's actually a buddy in Germany that cut these for me. Problem is, I was origionally told that we could run a SD 1 way, so these are cut for the SD, but from looking at it, I dont know if we can or not. I'm going to test one of them out and see if it works, but if not, there will be some happy SD owners for sure

No I don't run at Mimi's. Would you like a good (I think) starting setup for carpet?

Sorry I thought you were someone else. I thought I saw your name in the Maryland race thread.

Last week I ran the hardened front universals in my car and they worked fine. I did have to shave the end down slightly and take out the O ring from the oneway drive cup but I had no problems.

I just ran the car with foams on carpet today in stock class. Did pretty good I think. Very close to the box setup with a few changes...

Front

Diff, half turn out.
Shocks on arm, all the way in.
Shock on tower, second hole in.
AE 40wt
AE Yellow spring
RS#3 piston
60mm shock with no droop screws
0 toe
-1.5 camber
No Swaybar

Rear

Diff, half turn out.
Shocks on arm, all the way in.
AE 30wt
AE Purple spring
RS#3 piston
60mm shock with no droop screws
Center oneway (yes, still using it)
Arms all the way forward (0/4 shims)
2 degree rear toe block
-1.5 camber
No Swaybar

Other

Parma Alfa with stock wing
Epic Roar Stock
100/28
Parma foams (plaid front, purple rear 57mm)
Ride Height 4mmF/4.5mmR

Everything else is kit setting. Car ran great first time out. Very easy to drive. Our layout is fast and flowing. Much like the Snowbirds. Not highly technical like Cleveland. I'm sure I could tweak it even more. But carpet season is now over. Time for some Asphalt BABY!!!

I might run up at Debbies next weekend. A couple of us NC boys are suppose to show up (Brandon M/Steve B/Anthony S). I'm not sure if I will since I'd rather race asphalt. But we'll see. I just don't wanna pay for Roar Membership just for one race. Then again, I plan on racing the Nationals this year in Florida. So maybe I'll see ya Debbies. If not next weekend, maybe sometime later. Say hi to Keith for me...
