I read on hear someone had binding issues on the front spool and rear diff assembly. They mentioned the aluminum cam carriers fixes this. Has anyone else experimented with this?

I would not say it was "binding" but it was noticeably smoother with the Al cams, i think it is simply a matter of being able to over tighten the plastic ones causeing them to distort

I notice no one is really running the bridge on the bell cranks. Is everyone shiming the screws on top of the bell crank for play or just running the screws direct?

With the bridge off, I think... I think I have a .1mm shim under the screw. I'll have to measure it later, but that should give you an idea. It's just enough to take out any play in the rack.

Is it a standard size shim in diameter?

Depends what standard is to you. It's from a Tamiya shim set. I believe an axle shim. Thickness is 0.10mm. Outer diameter is 7.30mm. Inner diameter is 5.00~5.03mm.

It fits perfectly over the bearing. Acts kinda like a dust shield.

on some set up sheets for the bd7 2014 it shows that there is a optioin for O rings in the shocks. Is anyone playing around with this? Are they being installed under the piston internally or on the bottom of the shock shaft after assembly for downstops?

I think that refers to whether your using 1 O ring and the thick shaft quide or two O rings and the thin shaft guide. I think most people prefer the double O-ring setup. It a shade smoother and offers better sealing.

You would need:

and

Black bladders are recommended as well!
