feels similar like the old one when its new....I think it needs to be broken in for it to be smooth...thats my opinion. Doesn't hurt to sand it tho

Still needed the gears sanded to be smooth. I have started with 2k and feels a little stiffer then the old 2k diff but not much, ill see how it feels after being run in on Friday . I also replaced the kit red seals with the 500gob seals.

I'm still holding back buying the BD7 2015 I don't see much of a difference between 2014/2015... my BD7 2014 is dialed last weekend race after not touching and not racing my car in 8 months. I qualified 2nd on our expert 17.5 class after shaking the rust off my throttle finger from racing off-road and got comfortable driving on-road again I took the lead and never look back this is against guys running the Tamiya 419 and awesomatix.

Reading about the 2015 their is not much change in the design. Other the motor mount and the floating battery mount.

There is also the ability to move the motor forward a bit which might be interesting on tight tracks.
