all the part numbers are on yokomo's website.

I am not sure what you guys are whining about, yes the car only has incremental improvements, but I think they will be worth it.

For the record I am still keeping my 14 as my spare/VTA car because its a great car, but really looking forward to seeing what the 15 can do.

It's not that hard to drill a hole in the chassis.

By the looks of it the battery mount do fit the 14 chassic, since u need two holes in the back and one in the front of the battery. I think that it one of the main points to make new front weight blocks.

I agreed with u on the people are whinning a little to much, its starting to be more like the Xray theard. Aleast Yokomo make there own ideas, insted of borrowing others and optimze it

I have a friend who going to build a 15 really soon. I really looking forward to see the on the track

Gear diff is as smooth as butter, Yok supplied #700 diff oil for gear diff and #400 for the shocks.

I had the same S411 for the past 3 yrs which was a good car but needed a little finessing with suspension parts/diff gear smoothness. I haven't started installing the suspension on the YOK yet "waiting on titanium screws /Teflon coated shock shaft", Everything went together flawlessly.

The BD7 2015 is available here with €60+ in the alu servo mount & the included Roche drive shafts.

Anyone taken it for a drive yet?

that's good to hear, ill probably install the GOB diff seals, I still don't trust the red ones.

I have the opposite problem, I have all the hopup parts here, just waiting for the car

A note when building:

When installed the hinge pens are tight by design when installed in the front and rear a arms. Also hand fitting is required when installing the rear hub carriers and front caster blocks into the A arms. I was able to accomplish this by lightly sanding the cast the block and the rear hub carriers
