Pay special attention to building the gear diff. Sand down the gears and diff cup with #400 sandpaper. Make sure the out drives turn smoothly without binding before you put the diff together. The smoother the diff the more consistent the handling. You may need to switch to Kyosho red orings. Some people have had success with them, some haven't. My kit orings bound up my diff in my Black Edition. I switched to the red orings and everything smoothed out. Also soak the orings before you build the diff.

Build the rest as per instructions. You may need to pull shims out of the center pulley if it's too tight for your liking.

With the oil you are going to use or Associated Green Slime. This allows the orings to swell up for assembly since they will swell up eventually if you don't.

Hi,
Which other WHITE low friction belt (front 516mm) does fit the BD7?? For the rear the Xray ones have the same length 189mm.
Team Bomber are sold out everywhere or way overpriced.
Thx!

When i installed my conversion kit, the 2012/2013 kit stock spacers for the suspension arms did not fit at all. When i tightened down the toe blocks, all of my arms binded, this included my graphite arms and the plastic kit stock arms. I had to sand all of them to fit, and use thinner spacers for the arms to have free movement up and down, and not back and forth on the shaft movement, anyone else have this issue?

I cant say i had any issues with my conversion kit, but i dont think i was using the kit spacers, i think i was using associated spacers as i had plenty floating around (unless the kit washers are blue ? )

With my original kit i was using .02 shims anyway to remove slop, i think i had to go down to .01 shims, but that was all.

If I remember correctly, my Black Edition did not need as much fine tune shimming for arm spacing. Kit shims worked fine except up front where I might have added 0.2mm.

I have just fitted an alloy servo arm to my bd7, the ball stud now sticks through quite a bit I fear as it now goes into metal it will work it's way loose, so are there any shorter ball studs and tips what people have done so it doesn't come loose?

Blue thread lock is usually sufficient. But if your not comfortable with that, you can add a nut on the back side. Dremel the execs off on the backside if you don't like how it looks. Make sure to have the ball stud screwed on the servo horn before you dremel. That way if you damage the threads at all, the servo arm will fix the threads

Depends how far it sticks out...you can add spacer in between

Yeah I was thinking thread lock, don't really want to dremel it as it won't be black at the end then, my ocd won't allow it lol. The thread sticks out about 3mm, if I add a spacer it will change the angle of the arm Cyba

Hi,

I'm trying to get my hands on some of the old style HPI silver springs (#6543) for touring car that have completely silver coils, rather than the newer ones that have black coils with a silver paint mark.

If anyone has any that they want to part with please let me know.

Thanks
