Sounds awesome. Will you be running it box stock? Thanks for any input.

I've noticed some pics of Volker's chassis where the center screw on the front bumper mount is removed. Anyone know the reasoning behind it? Is it a flex thing? I've seen it on other top drivers cars as well. Even other brands.

Thanks

I think people do this so that that in the event of a hard head on collision, the bumper will collapse/ deform somewhat like a crumple zone. Im doing the same thing.

Yes, I think most people remove it so the bumper will "flex" a bit and less likely to break the chassis in hard head on collision.

Yep thats correct... basically everything that is aluminium / alloy on the BD7 is plastic on the RS. The motor mount is a thin aluminium plate though.

Chassis plate, top deck and driveshafts are as per the BD7.

Building it as per the box with all plastic parts rather than graphite to set what it is like...

Shock oil / gear diff oil will be as per my setup i usually run. May be next week i get to run it now though!

Cool. Does the car/chassis feel more flexible with the composite bulkheads? Or is it pretty stiff?

I'm just getting back into racing after being away a few years (local touring racing died out), but there is a new track that just opened up. I made the mistake of trying to run the plastic arms on carpet. Thought I could get away with it running 17.5 blinky. Nope. Car generated too much steering and it was inconsistent. I have some graphite bits on the way. Looks like they sorted out some stuff I didn't like about the BD5. Looking forward to running it some more.

Anyways, looking forward to your report. My friend will be interested in your results.

You guys think its a good idea to buy RS model to use as spare parts for my BD7? Just the small plastic parts, bearings, rear diff, carbon chassis and upper deck alone is worth over $200?

Congratulations to Corey (Team Yokomo wrench for Team Yokomo Driver Andrew Hardman) for winning the 2013 Ontario Time Attack Shootout with his GT2 BMW last weekend at Mosport now Canadian Tire Motorsports. He knows how to setup and drive RC Cars and Real Cars.

Corey - I now have Yokomo BD7s, sold the other cars. The Cayman R goes into Pfaff next week for a roll bar. I will need help and advice on the Yokomo and Cayman.

Have a great time in Vegas.
