Does anyone know the release date for the Bd7 RS? Thinking of waiting to buy this instead of a used car for the same price.

Thinner for more aggressive corner entry at the expense of less high speed steering and thicker oil for vice versa. For most outdoor tracks, you can get away with a thinner oil and it won't upset the balance but on carpet, it's very sensitive to viscosity changes.
Spec r 2000 oil? What Kyosho orings work for the diff?

What does the black shock bladders do compared to the stock blue ones?

Associated. Kyosho P5 oring at Speedtech. The Black bladders don't swell up like the stock ones. If your car is loose or inconsistent, your shocks have to be rebuilt. The stock ones are useless after a couple of days. On carpet, these things really show themselves so your car has to be perfect.

Quick one guys, can anyone tell me the internal diameter of shim required when running without the steering brace? Going to buy some but not got the car with me atm!

Thanks for the help with setup guys btw, played with a few bits at the weekend and made some steps (unfortunately ran the best setup after the meeting in a few practice laps!!)

Thanks
Dan

Hi!
New owner of a used BD7. Have not driven it yet but i know it is an excellent car.

Anybody else who finds the balance right/left off? I bought heavy Fantom 7200mah and electronics are Orca esc, Hitech 7775, airtronics rx451-r and a Ea killshot motor.

It is much heavier on the battery side and to balance it correctly I have to ad 50grams of led far out on the left side mounted ON the electrics. Then it becomes way to heavy.

Run 17.5 blinky and the weight limit is 1350 here in Europe so I am concerned.

Main question though. Anybody else experienced this?

Try mounting your esc further out on the chassis, you could also space the motor out a bit

BD7 has the motor very close to center compared to other chassis

7200ma is overkill for 17.5 blinky, but with a lightweight body, and ti screws you should be able to get the weight down

fyi
You can get new SMC 5600 packs that weigh only 290g, vs: the 320+g 7200 lipos
Also make sure to mount lipo as close to center as possible

Have fun with the new ride
