The coating and the plastic shock cap part has a cavity vs flat bottom for previous piece.

Thx!
They fit both sides FR or RR allowing for multiple widths and toe angles. For black you'll have to other from overseas for now.

Does anyone know or have experience with any of the battery retainer systems from other brands on the BD7. I have the aluminum retainers but it is my understanding they are not the best to use because of the hanging weight. I know I can just get by with tape but I like the added security of the retainers.

I am wondering if the reflex racing system would work???

Our system does work with the steel hangers, but it is still heavy. We have a new solution in the works that should be out in about 4 weeks. If China would not be shut down for Chinese New Year, it would be out already.

If you need them now, you can order them from Australia. I think they are $20 shipped to USA. Or wait for RSD versions.

Has anyone looked at the durango de410tc battery stops? They have various screw holes for mounting and look lime they would work on the BD7. They look to be made out of carbon and would be light if they are.

I am considering the low shock conversion. I think I read somewhere you use the regular Yokomo springs. Or, would you use a spring for a short shock such as an Xray spring?

[QUOTE=miller tyme;12980272]OR if they were Made in The USA [/]


We would love to have all our parts made in the USA if we could find a reliable, affordable, high quality shop that would be willing to do RC MOQ Size production runs. Unfortunately that has yet to be the case. Our best bet has been to source the material here and get it cut by our manufacturer in China. Even after shipping cost is lower and quality higher. Lead times are typically much lower as well.

While we do get some items made here, this is a compound product that will have carbon and aluminum pieces as well. Aluminum is completely out of the question to get made in the USA and keeping a decent price point. Being in a large city that has a ton of Machine shops (Houston) I can tell you, they are not interested in our peanut sized jobs. If your project is not 6 figures, they usually won't give you the time of day. It is all oil field related around here.
