Before I purchased my two BD7s I was running a Xray T3. Therefore, I have a lot of Xray T3 suspension parts sitting around. However, I'm not sure if I'm ready to try making a Frankenstein car. However, it's nice to know that should I ever burn through my current pool of BD7 c-hubs that I can grab one of the T3 parts.

I just picked up a BD7 RS and will be racing on Asphalt. Been brushing up on this thread..

1. front CVD axle needs to be trimmed,
2. Plastic spool and drive cups needs to be replaced with alu version
3. Arms, knuckles and uprights are brittle <--- is this in reference to std ones or carbon reinforced ones?
4. Diffs leak, use Kyosho O ring

Stabiliser: this is the rear one.. What do I use for front? Same one?

Anything else I missed?

Front set is this one: http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...er-Set-10-16mm

It is shorter then the rear stabiliser.

Get an Xray hard t3 front bumper and parts breakage will be minimal.

1. front CVD axle needs to be trimmed, Yes
2. Plastic spool and drive cups needs to be replaced with alu version That is the consensus
3. Arms, knuckles and uprights are brittle <--- is this in reference to std ones or carbon reinforced ones? Not true, stock are soft, very forgiving
4. Diffs leak, use Kyosho O ring or soak kit o-rings in silicon diff fluid before assy, have no leaks with this procedure

You may want to stock up on Blue/Pink springs
Kit springs are very soft, could be ok for street bashing, not racing

The front doesn't come with the hardware?

I have a spare sets of TRF dampers standard and short, was planning on running those for now.

Plastics are high quality, good fit and strong both standard and graphite.

The graphite C hubs may be brittle but I haven't used them.

Certainly buy the kyosho orings P5. They now appear to be included with the kits as standard and they are provided with the diff maintenance kit. My diff case was faulty mis manufactured or bad tolerance which caused the leak. A number of other local drivers have had the same diff leaking issues with the 2014 which wasn't a problem with early kits. Keep this in mind if you have leakage issues from the outdrives.

TRF shocks will be good (I assume if you have shocks you have springs you already have springs) the yokomo springs seem good but just use what springs you have.
If you are buying a set of springs, Ride and HPI springs sets are the most popular with local drivers.

I do have TRF springs, but do not presently have any HPI springs. Are the 6543 the correct silver springs?

Unsure as I don't use HPI springs, TRF springs will be fine though.
