I did the same as you.

May I suggest you save the time I wasted and just fit the graphite parts.

I had heard that this was the way to go... I am doing a review of the car for my web site so I will go with the car 'out of the box' and then go pretty much immediately to the graphite parts as I will be running on carpet - it means I can document the differences between the two compounds.

...and my build has started

So I pretty much copied Volker's base carpet setup and went with Black springs in the front and Green in the rear for Sorex tires.

For Jaco Blues I have Black and Yellows. Works pretty nice in mod.

In the end I got so much feedback about going Graphite for carpet that I did it as part of the build LOL

This car builds up so well - the quality of the parts and fit is extremely good. Looking forward to completing the build and getting a run with the car.

It does build very well, much better than I expected. I built a Yok a good few years back which gave me reservations about getting the BD7, but things are much different now and it's the best kit I've built for years.

The whole point is that there is no contact between the servo and the chassis, so mount the servo hard up against the top of the mount.

The specR V2 come with a thinner bearing for the inside of the knuckle and yes the pin for the hex is the same. These are being used by a few racers at TITC. There are some BD7's that have had some dremel tweaking to achieve FDR in the 3.16 range for non boosted.

I am using 6mm lower shock towers with the new Serpent short shocks so I can fit the Tamiya IFS bodies on my car. Perhaps at some stage I will post some pictures. Most are using Meens setup available on FB, but with the graphite parts.

This track is very high grip and to compensate we are using the Yokomo blue springs front and rear or the Ride green springs front and rear. Perhaps worth a try.

We have also found that GT body shells all have differing handling characteristics. So far the NSX, AUDI R8, EBBRO , Nissan 390 are all very good.

Anyway must go. Off to do more testing today, before pre qualifiers tomorrow. Qualifying is Friday and Saturday with the A mains Sunday. As always Ronalds car looks very good on the track.

Later,

Calvin.
