Grabbed the wrong sunglasses on the way out- instead of my CMOS camera one. Didn’t get to record to great session of racing, bashing, big jumps, mud-drifting and engine tuning with my BSD Land Ripper Nitro running SH .21 engine and FlySky FS-GT3B.

Post-run damage assessment Redcat Backdraft 3.5

This applies to BSD and Redcat Racing 1/8 range, I.e the Land Ripper Brushless, Land Ripper Nitro, Backdraft 8E and 3.5, Aftershock 8E, 3.0 and 3.5, and Earthquake 8E and 3.5. The steering knuckles are held to the steering hubs by wimpy 3mm screws. They always bend or break. This one’s a little bent, and loosened too but it’s held in by threadlock I applied. My Kyosho Infernos use Kingpins for the same purpose.

The other thing that broke was the front chasis. Too much dirt got between the front chasis and the differential bulkhead. Here’s where I have to applaud BSD racing engineer’s brilliance. Usually, had the same happened to a full-aluminum chasis, it’d warp. They realized that the front of the car takes the most beating, and made it easily replaceable! Best part? The plastic front chasis replacement cost less than lunch!

Aggressive styling by the designers at BSD Racing. This is the Land Ripper Nitro, often sold as the Backdraft 3.5. Held up very well… Only a bent screw, chipped front chasis, and a loosened front roll bar after some heavy bashing- which included some somersaults and cartwheels.

Yet another view of the Segar RC track. If you’re wondering where you can race your off road buggy, truck or truggy in Singapore, here’s where you can go.

Steering hub lost a kingpin. Hence, the front drive shaft went out of alignment.

Julian Wong working on his Kyosho Inferno tweaks at the Segar RC track. This was just two hours before my wife went into labour. Looks like the baby wanted me to have my final run before she’s out.
