My car was really good this weekend. I think I had the fastest car at the race but I'm not as good or consistent as the other drivers in traffic so I really couldnt convert it to Tq, plus it was my first time racing mod. Im sure in better hands my car would have dominated the race but I couldnt be happier otherwise.

This is hands down the best car I've ever had and in my opinion the best all around car on the market. I've got a really nice setup on that anyone can getdrive and get comfortable with after only a few laps.


Anyone else do this to their servo mount? Helps a lot with servo centering.

i tried both the red and the blue ones. i hated the red ones under steering and no traction, the blue's are great BUT they don't last very long at our asphalt track. the ring of death after 4, 7 minute heats

My son has found in stock the red rides under steered and did not have as much traction as the muchmore's we were using, but now he has moved to mod the rides seem to provide a lot more steering which has improved his lap times (strange I know).

I did the same mod! It helps keep the servo from shifting/rotating side to side, but i didn't put a shim or nut, i just put the antenna mound directly to the servo mount. I wonder why Yokomo didn't just put a 3rd screw tread there...

Hi, guys, have decided to join you and have bought myself a BD7...

Quick question with regard to the base setup that you arrive at when building the car following the manual steps - Is this a mix of the Carpet and Asphalt setup sheets that have been published on PetitRC? Seems to be closer to the Carpet setup (minus the graphite arms) as it is the Suspension blocks that are in the kit but then the springs are Blue/Pink in the kit which is the Asphalt setup...

Is there a setup sheet that shows the setup for the kit?

I don't think I've seen a setup sheet for the "kit build".


I did run the kit build setup to start, but changed to the Yokomo base carpet setup and found the car much better, not really sure what the kit build setup is for?

Thanks for the quick replies - will start carpet minus the graphite parts and then work from there (have bought the graphite stuff planning to go to the complete carpet setup).

WIll have a look at those others as well... thanks.
