Correct TC6 spool will fit. If you have been looking on Yokomo Europe, see if they have got a Spec R spool... Half the price and is ready to go apart from the pully.

You might also wanna try a Top Photon spool. Super light weight. I might try one soon just to see how they do. Roche also has BD7 spools as well. Or you can do a BD5 spool.

That's the original MR4-TC. It was a bit of a brick and difficult to work on.

I think they then did a Pro version with graphite chassis and improved motor mount.

Finally they came out with the MR4-TC Special, which is the car under the shell in my profile picture (taken in 2002). Same basic geometry, but much lighter and easier to work on. Took me a while to get the damn thing set up, but eventually managed a lap record with it at my local track.

Looks like the basic MR4TC to me, came out for $160 at the time with Accord or Stratus body. I had one 12-13 years ago. Everything looks standard on that car except its missing a lexan cover for the belt. Universals were standard all around. Car handled good for its time, and taught me how to drive....since it broke shocktowers and arms so easily.

Hello,

i drive the VBC (identical with Roche) shocks with Raceberry Bridges, short shocks are better. i made many test with springs but the best springs are:

Carpet: Yokomo pink/blue or blue/blue
Asphalt: HPI Silver/Silver

i have the VBC shocks rebuilt to drive with long springs, this is the best kombination, short shocks with long springs.

here is a report from petitrc:
It is now widely recognised that short big bore shocks are a step forward in electric Touring Cars. However most of them require the use of shorter springs which may not always be ideal. Shorter springs are, by nature, less linear than longer springs giving a more aggressive feel to your car. Some springs in particular have estabilshed themslves as a must have in certain conditions such as the HPI Silver on asphalt and the Yokomo Pink/Blue on carpet.

at BD7 you must cut the bottom connectors from the original Yokomo shocks to 13mm, make sure your shocks are 59.00mm long from top to bottom. then you will need to space them by 2mm from the arms and the shock tower in order to ensure enough clearance between the retainers and the lower arms.
Please note that this mod will only allow you to reach decent ride height with small tires only (LRP CPX, Ride Rex34 and Rex30 in particular).

does anyone know if the front and rear stabilisers (sway bars, anti roll bars) are the same, need to buy them for my BD7 RS but they do a complete rear set with fittings..but not a complete front set with fittings, so can i just buy 2 rears and use 1 at the front?
