Is anyone running a BD-7 RS? I like the approach Yokomo used with keeping the carbon fiber chassis but replacing the aluminium with plastic to reach the lower price point. I was wondering what anyone running the car thinks of the quality and performance. It seems that swaybars and the aluminum motor mount would be important upgrades.

Cool new kit, but only released 1 week ago, with none in the US marketplace yet
May take a bit to see feedback

ChaChing $$$$ lol.

I use the Tammy or the Top ones. They are a lot stronger than the Yokomo or Spec R. Only problem is the pin is loose in the spool cup

What material are the stock spool cups? Are there spring steel ones out on the market?

Standard parts are HQ liteweight steel, this is what the Team drivers use as well, if not running a diff

Thank you

Can someone confirm if Spec R and Roche DCJs are different? They look identical

I own the Spec-R V2 set, they don't have any slop or play in them. I've heard the Yokomo ones are fragile, and Rolker uses a new set each heat... but don't quote me on that, i read that in this thread

Andrew (Hardman) has been using the Yokomo version - and we have been happy with how they have been lasting. We have had a few race weekends on them without incident so far.

Ian (Andrew's Dad)

I've had zero issues with the Yokomo DCJ's
Also noticed Arrowmax DCJ's look identical to Yokomo, to the best of my knowledge, Arrowmax are quite durable too

Only run 13.5 though

I am having problems changing spur gears. The screw always gets stripped on the main gear shaft. It won't let me take off the spur unless I dremel it off. Anyone have that problem? Kimbroughs seem to hit the upper deck as well, I need to dremel that too?

A buddy of mine had the same problem.
There were 2 causes for his problem:
-use of loctite
-he unscrewed one screw fully, then the other one

Now that he unscrews them bit by bit and doesn't use loctite anymore everything's fine for him.
