Kimbroughs are too thick. Xenon, Panaracer and RW V2 spurs are thin enough so I would recommend going that route rather than dremelling the top deck.

I remove only one screw for the shaft and i'm able to slide the pulleys over to change the spur. But i noticed if you put the screw back without paying attention, it can ruin the threads and then you're...screwed

Chris, I've learned xray spurs are also a little thinner than Kimbroughs. That might work as an alternative to the ones listed above too.

I also had a problem with the screws in the pulleys. Last Sunday I was for the first time on a Aspahlt track next to me. The Car felt after some first small changes great.
But after about 3Lipos I lost one screw out of the Pulley -> new one in there - 1 lipo later the same problem.
Does anybody know what I made wrong?

2 Thoughts.
1. Are you shimming the pulley correctly? If there isn't not enough tension on the pulley shaft then it could come loose.
2. I used a small amount of thread lock on the screws going into the pulley shaft.

Hi All,

Which additional parts would you guys recommend for a new DB7 setup? Options, tuning etc. I would like to get an idea of what I need to include for a fully spec'ed DB7.

Thanks Guys.

The BD7 is great out of the box, however, here are some ideas

There is a JNOP option pack - YOKB7-JNOP - that has a number of these items included. I would recommend that you get this at a minimum.

Anyone running the BD7 RS version? I'm running the BD7 and love it, but I have a friend looking into the RS. I was just wondering on the quality of the bulkheads and other composite parts as well as handling. Thanks.

My son, Andrew, just switched to the BD7 and found it is very easy to drive in Mod - and he also feels that it has potential for Super Stock and Stock with the corner speed it seems to be able to carry. The car has been successful in the ETS series in Stock on carpet and asphalt.

Ian
