How do you convert the bd7 to run the X-ray c hubs and steering blocks? That's going to be my only option for this weekend.

Do the graphite ones hold up better? They're just stripping the lower king pin screw out. I've gone through 3 individual ones so far and I'm down to one spare until my next Rc market order comes in that hasn't left Hong Kong yet.
put a drop of CA glue and round it on the screw thread in the knuckle...after that direct screw in the king pin..

this will solve your problem until u open it up again...never fail me ...

From what I've rear you either drill the arm to 3mm then use the 3 mm pin from xray or I saw someone say he got a 2mm id 3mm od carbon tube and put inside the xray c hub! I assume u need it ASAP so sourcing and getting the tube will take longer than a model shop over nighting it for u n paying the extra. Your only real option is the Dremel and 3mm bit! Sorry.

Hey guys,
if I'm not mistaken the BD-7 got shorter shocks compared to the BD-5.
Can someone tell me if the length of the springs changed as well or is it still the same?

Hi!

Shock is still the same, just the shock end balls and caps have changed. Thus, springs are also still the same.
