I've never tried it on this car. In the past I have done it with no issues. I'm currently using the CSO overhang mount. Same Yokomo Blue Aluminum at 1/3 the cost of the Yokomo mount. Here's a quick pic of mine. If you get the RS, a good optional pack to get is the Japan Nats Option Pack. It's between $109 to $120, but it includes all the hopup options that you'll need for carpet and high traction surfaces. Or just run the car as is and have fun!!

I don't run the foam on top of the bladders, but I do run the black bladders. As for droop, this is how I measure. Here is an old pic I took. This one is 8.5mm rear droop...

We will be posting our setup very soon, and for the most part, our setup is very close to Ronalds.

Just an FYI, Ronald runs a completely stock BD7 with no special parts(meaning parts not available to consumers). Yumino is an absolute master with details(both setup and build) and that is the only thing that separates his car from everyone else's. As a fellow mechanic, I hope to be as good as him one day!

Stay tuned for the setup(hopefully by Wednesday).

Can some offer me some advice please, its was my second night running my new bd7 in stock class, I lost steering 3 times tonight because of my bd7 bell crank system, the screws that hold it together keeps loosening and falling out, if I tighten it u my steering locks up and the servo cant push it.

I was thinking of putting a couple of drops of locktite in for next week, but does anyone has any tips on how to keep it secure without screwing it down to hard?

thanks
Jon

Hi Jon, just use a tiny bit of locktite to help keep the screw secure. If you are using a direct servo horn, crashes will cause vibrations throughout the steering system and screws will eventually back out, so it is best to locktite ALL of the screws in that area. Makes sure to use a mild version of whatever brand you choose, as I am sure you would want to be able to remove the screws in the future.

Are you missing shims?
You should be able to tighten without any bind at all
