Really good news for him. It'd be nice to have such a high profile driver running the BD-7 in the UK but I'm pleased for Elliott. Team Durango is a class act I'm sure he'll do well.

u can try 44.2 toe block front and add 1mm shim under the front block...this will reduce the entry corner steering

- Longer front camber links
- Lightweight body
- Anything that makes your RC lower would help for sure, but will make steering more sluggish.

Abraįo.

Quick question for BD7 owners - does the kit come standard with these steel front spool outdrives -

http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...-steel-p-19229

Or does it come with the plastic front outdrives that have been included in previous Yok BD cars that snap like cheese every time you drive over a painted white line ?

I loved my previous BD.....hated those plastic outdrives.

Has anyone had any luck using Double Joint Universal, other than Tamiya's or Yokomo's?

I know these: Yokomo Front Double Joint Universal Shaft Set [YOKBD-010FW] - break, and there is no pin retainer.
And i read the Tamiyas are not a 100% fit

what else is there?

I have been using the Tamiya DCJ's with no issues for the last three months. I have them fitted in my BD5WXi and BD7.

The other option is SpecR V2 DCJ's.

Later,

Calvin.

I had bearing binding issues when I installed tamiya double joints. And the inner part of the steering knuckle would ream out. I now run tamiya steering knuckles with tamiya double joints. No. Issues, car handles like a dream now. Consistent every outting. U can see my setup in the pic I posted above.
