Pm with offers if you're willing to ship your old car across the pond. Rollers or ARR doesn't matter.
bd7 2015 kit should be in store around 15th October 2014...

the perfect upgrade for the car would be Roche FLoating Servo Mount, Roche Spring Steel Spool cup and Roche Spring STeel ECS.

Don't have the funds for a '15 at the moment... But it would be nice to build a new kit again.

I wonder if there will be a BD7 15 conversion available? That would really boost up sales

I think the Xray floating servo mount is better than both the Yokomo and the Tamiya and replaced them in both cars, so for me it's a good thing the kit doesn't include it. Some people comment the Xray allows flex and that is true. When the servo is not attached. When it is, I challenge anyone to find any problem with flex. NOt to mention that I don't see that as a problem. The alloy mounts won't flex (much) but they will distort if push comes to shove. I prefer something that will spring back.

But I think that's all academic. The most important feature I adopted the Xray for is its versatility and aesthetics.

By the way, it is a direct fit on both Tamiya and Yokomo chassies.

So u think the optimized orange servo mount is better really!!...
That think is ever going any where even my car.
Since the servo on my bd7 but touch the chassic, I can't really see why the xray one should be better. I don't think the xray one would spring back since the chassic apparently break if u don't drive the bumper bracer, so spring is not conna happen with there low quality carbon they use.

In preparation for the arrival of my BD7 15 I've ordered the Titanium Main Gear Shaft, Titanium Turnbuckle Set, P3 O-Ring Collar and High Grade Silicone Shock O-Ring Set (Blue), any other recommendations?

Sounds good, you could also order TI coated shock shafts and eyelets. Maybe order the option blatter.


I'm trying to do the same as you.

Aside from everything else that's needed I hope. DCJ's up front, Floating servo mount, alu rears...
At least you get lipo mounts/stoppers in the box

Ti screws are nice to have.
