Is the BCE a bit longer than standard, but not as long as Kyosho's new extended? I think i read that here somewhere, but cant remember. How much is the BCE by the way?

well my new clutch arrived, it's a dragon racing 3 alloy shoe with 1.1 springs, quality looks pretty good, got a chassis from dragon coming aswell, pretty happy with the quality so far. here's the clutch [link]http://cgi.ebay.com.au/13T-clutch-assembly-for-Kyosho-MP7-5-777-ST-R-ST-GT_W0QQitemZ320149383576QQihZ011QQcategoryZ44028QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem[/link] They seem to offer quite a few aftermarket CNC parts for quite a few brands at fairly good prices, especially for shipping to Oz. I just hope the quality is pretty good to stand up to club racing

The BCE chassis is a bit longer and needs a diffrent rear drive shaft, I think it was around 125 buck for both with shipping. Neo buggys web site has the info, just email the guy and he will send a paypal invoice, let him know you need the rear shft too. Im still waiting on mine, been a week and it was just shipped out today, so he says.
Yeah, the bce comes in standard and longer versions, not sure how it compares to the kyosho extended one. I'll post pics once it shows up and ask one of the kyosho driver what the diffrence is.

My new mill finally arrived (looks awesome, cant wait to run it) Just waiting on my DR chassis, so I can build it up again with all the other ST-R goodies I've got waiting to go, will post pics once it's all done.

ProRCRacer, have you had a chance to run yours yet? and if so, how is it?

MTB, not yet i havent sold the other rcs yet and just spent some money on the Menace to get it up and running again due to a bearing failer. Will run this til i sell the other cars and then get all the gear for the ST-R. Might have some1 interested in buying one of them so hopefully we cut a deal.

Hey pro. if your selling it on ebay, watch out for buddy420, dudes a scam artest. I sold my mbx5t with ninja 21 and a jp1. He emailed me telling me The carb doesnt open fully and that the track has numerous issues. I pretty much told him to stick it up his astrological chart.
He didnt leave feed back and neither did I. The next day he has it all back on ebay for sale usen the same discreptions I gave.
I dont have a problem with a fella make a buck, but Im out positive feed back on a truck that was simply perfect.
If you sell on ebay, mark him down on your block buyer list. He will try and scam into sending cash back and then relist everything. He didnt get cash back and on the 30th day, Im leaven him negative feed back.
Ebays nice and all, just a few ***es on it.
I got my st-r body painted, it sucks. Black was wet when I started second color so it blew the black and made it run. First time usen more than one color. I'll try and get a pick. Still waiting on my truck to show up. Starting to worry.

Hello Nascar, no i have it on this site, its one of the fusions i dont need. Thanks for the heads up on the scam artist, hard to believe anyone that owns a mugen or similar kit would be a peice of junk like he claimed it was. No telling what he done to it before he relisted it.
I dont remember you saying you had a ST-R that you payed so little for, you got an even bigger steal than me. Hope it gets there in the condition its suppose to be in. The body doesnt look bad, it has the look as if the heat from the flames on the side made the paint start to run off.[8D] If it doesnt meet your expectations when you have it mounted, then it can just be the practice body.
IF you can, find out the difference in length the BCE chassis is over the STRR chassis

The strr chassis is the reg conversion kit. The bce I was told is the same lenght its just more ridget. Im not looking for it to comen in until mid september, the guy that makes them has a back order big time.
My str shipped was 185, usen the rest of the cash I saved to uupgrade, bce chassis and big bore shocks, that makes it a strr. You can turn a str into a strr with longer chassis and the big bore shocks. That will set you back about 300 bucks, Im hearing the strr kit runs about 750. I should still come out ahead by converting it once it shows up.
That body is going to be my basher, Im bidding on another body on ebay, get them for 20 bucks shipped unless somone real wants it bad and out bids me. Im going to run white rims up front and yellow rims in the back, I'll get picks posted once its finished.

My chassis just arrived this minute, tooks photos straight away.

For the price, It looks pretty good, 7075 CNC aluminium, all machining, including countersinking looks very neat, very happy at this stage, will have to wait and see how it performs, will keep you posted.

The DR Chassis is only standard length, was only $50 shipped to Australia, from the US. It's a chinese company, but the quality seems good. My plan is to run this chassis for a while, upgrade to the big bore shocks, and then consider the longer chassis. By the way this chassis was advertised as 'same as fiorini option, at less than half the cost'. It is 7075 Aluminium and is really light. We'll see how it goes.

Mine came in today, sweet, will snap shots when its together. I went to install the werks 28, the threads on the crank crumbled like pringles chips being steped on by Opra. I called werks and they want me to send it back for replacement. I'll get shots of that too.
So it looks like Im running the v spec, its only on its first gallon and has plenty of kick, but was looking forward to the 28 in a truggy.

As long as they come to the party I guess!, I think it'll still run pretty well with the V-Spec

Talked to werks, they said to send it to them, replace it for me. The guy was baffled, said he never seen or heard anything like that before. I ran mine in the parking lot out front, holly cow, this thing kills the mugen I had, once its on the track it should way out perform what the mugen done. That well see tomarrow night.
The v spec works great and the werks 2013 pipe realy works well with the v spec.
