Now I'm running lightweight body. What servo and esc are you running? Got any pics of your setup? I'm just curious where your weight is coming from. Also, take out center ballast.
Heres my electronics:

Motor: reedy sonic mach 2 10.5T
Esc: orca vx blue
Servo: savox low profile 1251MG (if im not mistaken)
Receiver: sanwa 451R

I added motor fans which adds 20grams, after adding all the electronics (including servo mount,wires) i get about 330grams on the left chassis.

So in terms of having balanced car, using orca batt makes it even between right and left. Plus i used the centre ballast as battery stopper (another 20gram)

My ride body is pretty heavy at 114gram, so might save some if i turn to lightweight body.

Currently i can save weight using another 7000mah batt from max concept(local brand if im not mistaken) and final weight ready to run is about 1415gram.

To be honest im quite comfortable driving the car with that weight, cant say i can identify the difference if i go lower to 1380gram.

But of course once Im good enough to know the difference I will try to reduce the weight of the car.

Im using mobile phone while typing this, so no pictures for now, will upload later when im free.

Can neither confirm or deny how they work in mod, other than, these are the same parts on the team cars, and they do run mod...

It is also possible a gear diff helps lifespan of them as well, spools at the front are just hard on everything.

Oh yeah, my car is back to being brilliant to drive again thanks to a fixed diff Once i dropped it back to 1K oil and a rebuild it was fine. Im still not as quick as CraigM but thats more to do with the driver

patiently waiting for the 2014 upgrade

I dont have any repalcement yokomo orings yet so i used Kyosho. I just followed everyones recomendations, made sure it was super clean when i rebuilt it and only used 1000 oil. The diff still feels a little tight probably about the 15-1600 range, but that was where i wanted it anyway.

With the 2000 oil and swallen orings it felt about 4000

Hi,

just saw on the FB of Umino:

"With the BD7-2014, the following optional parts of the BD7 come standard: graphite front and rear suspension arm, front steering block, and rear hub carrier."

Does this mean that 2014 comes with graphite parts by default?

Translated from google:

Important Announcement regarding the BD7-2014
Team Yokomo

On November 22nd, just days before making its debut at the Final Round of the Asian Onroad Championship at Yatabe Arena, We announced the BD7-2014. I'm very grateful for all the excitement and positive comments regarding the BD7-2014.
Thank you!!!

Today, I am making an urgent and important announcement to our customers. Last September, we released the BD7 and received several time more orders than expected. We dramatically increased production to respond to the incredible demand, and the BD7 stays popular to this day.

With the new BD7-2014, we are experiencing a similar situation – ever since the announcement on our website, we have received many orders worldwide, surpassing the production count of our first lot, and we are currently implementing measures to increase production and speed up production for the second lot and beyond.

The reaction to the BD7-2014 is greater than the hugely successful BD7, and to that I am very very grateful!

With the BD7-2014, the following optional parts of the BD7 come standard: graphite front and rear suspension arm, front steering block, and rear hub carrier.

Furthermore, the BD7-2014 comes standard with a "hard type" steering hub carrier which employs a new material to improve steering response to better handle turns. The BD7-2014 is so popular, that it may become difficult to get a hold of one if you don't order one now!

If you are considering purchasing a BD7-2014, I would recommend you act now by heading over to your local retailer and place an order for this extremely popular model.
The BD7-2014 will meet and exceed your expectations!

Hang on tight until the BD7-2014 becomes available!

Yukijiro Umino

Todays announcement certainly reads that way.

The type of barriers used will also determine the durability of your DCJs. Clik-Track barriers tend be much harder on the DCJs than a track that utilizes lots of dots.
