I just put in tamiya bladders right now. I'll see how it goes.

They felt the same as the yokomo bladders but I could easily get my rebound consistent shock to shock

I found the titanium shock shafts makes a big difference to smoothness

Had another good outing with the BD7 at our local indoor carpet track racing 17.5 blinky. I set the TQ pace every round and squeaked out a win in the main.

Here is my setup for those who are interested.


Here was my TQ run. Im the blue and white Speed 6.

Hey, i noticed you raised both your front and rear top links, and extended the front ones only, how does that affect your handling? makes your car turn in more?

So far, i only started with extending my front links, and only on the inside i raised it by 1mm.

Yes exactly that. more turn it. lets me drive hard entering a corner and almost pivot without my rear end spinning out. I use the extra hole in the CSO aftermarket front bulkhead. If I want even more steering, I'll raise the rear shock position up one or 2 depending on my tires.

why you run the outer hole for rear hub ?? to make the rear roll more into corner?? wouldn't the rear roll too much ?

Finished my first race with the BD7 and although I had issues with my servo crapping out throughout the day, blowing out my lrp sxx esc and using a club spec speedo from hobbywing, I still managed to almost stay on pace with the fast guys this weekend.

The car is not dialed in yet, but it already has more potential than my 417x.
Loving it! I know some guys will end up switching to this car once they see what it can do when its all done and set up .

I run aluminum rear upright (0 deg) It only has one mounting hole. Not 2 like the plastic / carbon.

I found it carries more corner speed, and helps the rear follow the front when you turn on a dime. Rear won't spin out.

Thanks man!
Universal Raceway has both an offroad and onroad track. Unfortunately the Offroad track takes like 3/4ths the facility....

offroad track:
