does the silicon feel lighter with metal gears? To clearly put it, does a 1000 with plastic feel the same as a 1000 with metal gears? In the Tamiya's, I noticed that with steel vs plastic, you have to run a much thicker oil to get the same feel as plastic gears.

Agreed. I've been running a diff from my BD5 days, ran it with mod, and still run it today with 13.5 boosted, never had any problems either. Ordered the metal ones out of curiosity. And am still curious hahaha!

Does anyone know if the stock BD7 RS spring cups fit HPI springs? Or do you need these?

Following up from this I spent several hrs building shocks and trying other orings from other brands of shocks.

From the original yok shocks I have 2 ok shocks (100% stock) that can run little to no rebound without sucking in air, 1 not great but workable shock requires about 25% rebound to prevent sucking in air (slightly better with mugen orings) and one that sucks in air badly with stock orings. It is a little better with other orings but is sill not up to the task.

The best fitting orings were mugen reds followed by kyosho clear.

Are you using black bladders? The clear kit bladders are a one time use kind of part.

HPI springs are a direct fit to BD7 Damper, not sure about RS ?

Unless the pitch of the plastic vs metal gears are different the oil should "feel" the same. (That is making sure the plastic or the metal gears are not tight in the diff case.)

Default Two or four satellite gear

Hi all, have anyone try to use two satellite gear in the rear gear diff on bd7 2014? If yes, in what condition is this setting preferred?

Shocks appear to be sorted, I found the oring cap was bottoming out before the thin washer made contact with the oring on the 2 not so good shocks.

The 2 orings were just protruding from the shock body so I assume the design was to have the washer press up to the bottom of the shock body applying slight pressure to the orings to prevent movement and leaks.

I removed approximately 0.1mm from the cap which allowed the thin washer to press against the oring and stop air being sucked in.
