Ran the car today first time on low-med bite asphalt (Tamiya USA track). Used Meen V.'s setup in the morning with the exception of HPI silver springs front and rear(i dont have extra blue springs). The car was very easy to drive, almost too lazy for me. I ended up going to the normal front wheelbase setting and raising the front outer camber link to 1.5mm.

Basically, just run his setup as a baseline. It's 90% there.

Pete was Supa dialed today !

I tested the base asphalt setup, and it just didn't have the mechanical grip his car had
My Yok wasn't bad, just not as hooked up, still fairly easy to drive

Roche did release some 2.0mm lowerdeck for BD7.

I'm running it in asphalt and as well of Carpet. car feel more traction and also lot more corner speed.

basically, meen setups is for high tration track like rc addict. Running his setup in low traction will make the car too slow in reaction...

Agreed. The car was slow reacting but overall balance was very good. All changes I made were only to the front of the car to add aggresiveness to the steering. That's a much easier task to dial in the car.

I tried his 2.0mm flex top deck and liked it. It was also on low to medium. Have now fitted a 2.25 3k chassis as well. A lot more grip all round I feel.

I feel the Bezerk top deck made a huge improvement on my local low to medium grip track.
I haven't tried the race berry or Roche ones

Those are specific to SpecR DCJ's

I've run Yokomo & SpecR DCJ's without issue
Prefer Yokomo parts as the spool pin-fit is better on the dogbone
If using Yokomo, make sure to disassemble new parts, clean, align, and locktite, should be trouble free

As a matter of point
My BD-7 hasn't any issues such as those brought up by some of the racers here ?
Nothing tweaked, broken, or bent
Sweet ride
