Exactly! The BCE chassis is an option that some feel benefit the car, is it a needed option? No Sir.. The stock chassis is fine and if your concerned with the clutch bell hitting the chassis take a dermal to allow clearance under the bell..took me 2 minutes to fix. Anyways the car Rocks have fun!

That being said,,,, I also believe that Kanai has been leading the industry for years and with out a doubt has every other car company scratching their heads I to love the Mp9 and have personally switched at least 6 drivers to Kyosho. I do not carry the BCE flag but when something works ,,,well,,,,it just works. Not preaching just saying,,,,.

No problem, just letting people know what the BCE chassis feels like to me.
Not that the stock chassis has problems,because it doesn't. I know that BCE has been working on this chassis with the help of some of their pro drivers for a long time. They made some small changes that made a perfect platform even better IMO.

Hey Pete, I didn't get a chance to look at your servos today but if they are high speed servos you should turn down the servo speed on your radio or try running some expo to slow down the initial reaction. I've known many guys to buy servos, engines, etc etc.. base on specs not realizing the effects it may have on drivability. Servos is one of those things, yours just might be too fast, giving you the elusion that your cars setup is twitchy. I believe that any servo under .10 sec in buggy is gonna be a handful, especially driving a car as responsive as the 9.

Just a thought before you go chasing setup changes...

Broke my first front lower arm today. How cool can that be! Straight, high speed and small hump on the side... bad combination, buggy fly hit tree and I go NOOOO SHIT... So so cool! This thing is build like a rock. I thought it would be more but just the lower arm, the rest all still going strong!

Outdrive all fine, it just pop out when the arm when lose. I was more worried about the shock due to the angle of the arm when i first carry it, thought I might bend it but all ok except the lower arm, so that's cool.

Listen to what you're saying, doc. Not sure why this would be such a revelation or hard to believe. It's very easy to make any car more stable, it's far more difficult to make a car steer faster and still be nice and progressive, stable and controllable. What exactly would be the point of releasing a chassis for any car if there wasn't going to be some sort of change/improvement? And you should know as well as anyone, everything here is all 100% biased personal opinions. We're all biased because we work hard for the money that pays for our toys. No one is saying this is 100% true and undoubted facts, which will do the exact same thing for every single driver under every single condition, just 1 guy saying how it affected his drive. Stable essentially equals understeer because if it were steering more/sharper, that wouldn't be considered stable.

Just my 2cents.

Where is it twitchy Pete - in a straight line, on corner entry, etc? If it's in a straight line which you're talking about, what toe-in are you running? I had the exact same problem and I went from 3o toe-out to 0.5-1.0o toe-out and instantly the twitchy, unstable feeling was gone. Of course, this also affected corner entry, but I had no problems giving up some off-power steering as there was too much for me when running 3o toe-out and made the car over-rotate for my driving style.

If you're running 2+degrees front toe-out, try reducing the toe-out and that should definitely help with removing some of the twitchy feeling you're experiencing.

Who gives a crap how many posts I have. My point was this moron is trying to pass himself of as some sort of expert after posting a few stupid comments. I'm not the one making sweeping claims about a products validity.

See you down at Narrubundah soon
