Does anyone know what B.S.V. goes by on Facebook?

 

I want to ask him about his strategy in putting the set screw on his crown gear in a spot that can't be accessed with a normal/common slot racing hex wrench?

I found it under B.S.V. , the second time I searched.

 

But you have to join the group.

 

Hopefully someone will approve me.

Not necessary.

Even using the .078"/thin shafted, Koford hex wrench, the screw can't be acccessed straight on.

Looks like the teeth hang over the set screw. Is that what your finding?

The set screws are put in on an angle. I talked to Dmitry about this and the screw being hard to reach when the gears were first available. I was told no one complained of this problem in testing.


A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

I must have had the early ones . They were straight and a bit of a problem.

I started the screw with a ball wrench then use a normal wrench to tighten. Koford or RF are good enough for me, and less of a hassle. I won't buy these again.

Thanks to all on their responses.

 

These are unsellable, in my opinion.

 

Hopefully my dist. will take them back.
