Have you tried the Jaco spec tires yet ?
I'll have to take a picture of the DCJ cause it has nothing to do with build. It was properly lubricated as well.

I need to try the Jaco's but they make the car tail happy with my setups usually.

I would like to ask, what speed control + motor are you guys running in your BD-7's when racing boosted, blinky, or mod ect.

I am asking due to my recent troubles with the LRP Flow WorksTeam ESC. I am looking to purchase another ESC to replace this piece of junk, and just wanting to get an idea of which combo's are competitive in all fields of racing.

thank you
Bill.

Speed Passion Pro is a nice speed control. I too had a similar LRP speed control (SXX V2) which stopped working. Piece of crap indeed.

The speed passion pro has been great, and it fits nicely in the BD7.

I've been running an LRP Flow for the longest time ever since its release. Blinky and mod once or twice. I havent had any issues with any of my LRP speeods but I have heard of others blowing them up like you so knock on wood. I guess you were unlucky and got one of the bad ones sorry to say.

If I were to use another speedo, it would be Orca. I actually have one for mod. I didn't like Orion or Hobbywing, they feel too flat in blinky.

Well, the flow, in my opinion, was under performing in the 17.5 boost class. I had racers running tekin, SP and hobbywing products absolutely thrashing me down the straight, and out of the corners. I have been looking into the speed passion reventon pro 1.1, and by the looks of things, it's the way to go. I don't necessarily want to purchase an ESC which nobody at my club currently owns (Such as the Flow) as I can compare settings, and receive help when necessary.

I've heard good things about the ORCA speed controllers, but the risk of not being able to receive instantaneous help worries me, as I have been to hell and back with the Flow speed control trying to find the right settings to be competitive enough against other racers. Whilst I'm here trying to make it work in the first place, others are trying to hit the sweet spot.

I think in boosted stock class, nothing beats Tekin from what people around here have said. Go for Tekin, I just hate that you need a computer to tune it.

Hmm, I've heard bad things about Tekin Speed controllers about how they too under perform compared to other ESC's. I really don't want to fall into the same situation that I'm having with the flow at the current time. I think my best bet is to go with the SP R PRO 1.1, as I know racers who use Speed Passion products and would be able to assist.

Im running orca esc in both my Bd7, and i have to say when it comes down to all the esc, and I've tried them all, hands down IMO the orca is king for me, the new SP reventon is good as well but i run that only in my 4wd off road buggy

Thankyou for your opinions, but anyway...

I'm wanting to purchase necessary variable products for the Yokomo itself, such as springs, stabilizers, diaphragms and other items as such. Can somebody please direct me to which I should be buying, and which work best.

Thankyou.

Number 1: HPI Springs(blue, silver and pink). Much better than Yokomo springs.

Other things: Black bladders and DCJ's, the only necessities.
