A small and a large. PH1 and PH2. That's what Yokomo sells.

PH1 fits both the diff and suspension screw.

I'm trying to figure out what size of arrowmax phillips screwdrivers I need and they are listed in mm. I'm almost certain it is a 3.5mm.

3.5mm would be the closest. My PH1 bit is about 3.2mm.

I mean, last year I ordered my BD7 for $435 from RCMarket. Why pay $560 for AMain's price back then? Blah blah blah. hehe

Anyways, still waiting on my short shock conversion to come in. Interested to see what that does.
Xray T4 carbon battery brace screws straight up to the Yokomo battery guides. Will post pics tomorrow. This one:

So, anyone tried the 2014 on Track yet ?

I have some problems with mine. Mostly in tight left Turns I loose the Back with almost no warning. Very critical to drive.
Carpet with Mid/High Grip. Especially in the fast long left with a closing double left at the end.

First I was blaming it on our new Tracklayout, however, the previous week my 2013 BD7 handled real good with exactly the same setup.

Now a Couple guys raced on a bigger event last weekend on a low/medium grip carpet and major issues. They couldn't get the car to work causing lots of frustration.

From first talks the same behaviour of the car I had.
Well, I am not the Master of Setup but here we are talking about ETS A-Finalists and Stock Winners, DHI Cup Winners....., would believe these guys know how to setup a Yokomo.

Running on the ETS Ride Tires by the way.

Wondering if the new Motor mount is the reason ?

Any experience on your side of the Water ?

I'll give it another try tomorrow night. Have my 2013 ready for 1 to 1 comparison.

Ours were stuck in customs since Dec 29 , hopefully getting them by or before Friday. I'm sure Cristian will chime in shortly since he got a full kit, I just got a conversion.

Are there any differences between the blue and black 2014 editions besides the color? I'm asking cause I don't know anything about yokomo. Thanks in advance.

Only issue I had was the car was a little tipsy at first, lots of steering but dialing down the dual helped a lot and I think the proper servo mount will help too since the stock one doesn't quick "hold" the servo too well. This was on the stock toe blocks too, I'll have the front toe block friday that I ran on my other BD7....so we'll see what that does.
