I should post up pictures of my BD7 with the short T shox and 8mm lower towers. These turned out excellent from Bezerk RC here in Australia.

Hopefully will post this weekend. I now have the choice of running either 6mm or 8mm lower towers, so I can run Tamiya IFS bodies on my BD7 in our GT class.

I can't be 100% sure that caused it, but I'm definitely going to test it back to back with 1 o-ring because I'm pretty suspicious.
I'm faster with 1 blue O-ring and thick collar

Can anyone tell what battery mounts these are? They are not the yokomo ones that are 17grams (!)

hey guys,

What is the purpose of the front bumper cut outs? It seems that they are only found on Yokomo cars. Anyone knows?

Do you guys take them out? or leave them in? use some CA glue may be? I have no clue what to do with them. Which way protects the car better?

Yeah a small bit of CA will keep them in. Some even CA them in below the top of the bumper and cut them off flush at the bottom.

Try this it work very well for a few of us.
The only thing i might change is shock oil to 450.
Blue springs all round work well but so did yellow.

In my opinion, the cut outs allow the bumper to give a little to absorb more shock during a collision to reduce the damage to your car. leaving the cutouts in would transfer more of the force of an impact to other parts of the car and potentially cause more damage
