Makes the car a lot easier to drive! Use some 5mm x 0,1mm shim on top of the bearings and use a 3x6mm screw for the steering posts! ;-)

As you can see on the picture below! ;-)
What servo horn are you using?

Take some balancing tool like the hudy ones and try it out! ;-) Everyone has different electronics and different batteries and so different weights! ;-)

@ Aaron_M:

I used the hudy pins and found my car wants 40g on the left side which isn't really possible to add. I looked through pictures of the bd7s from the worlds and found no one has any ballast weight. Correction 25 on the left I was including the center weight.

I currently have 35 grams down the left hand side, that is without the floating servo holding which i am waiting for.

Hopefully with the servo holder i will not need much more weight.

I assume 20mm is the length?

I know from a previous post they stated they were stronger.

Btw you buy all the cool hard to get stuff why not just go all the way with the BD-7 you know you want to....the darkside is screaming....."YOKOMO!"

Macki, battery weight has a lot to do with it. How heavy are your packs?

I personally own batteries that weight anywhere from ~10 oz (~280g) all the way to 12.5oz (~350g). The key is to find a brand that has a good MAH/C rating and the weight is not too heavy. Seeing as to that you run stock I would look into Reedy 5500's. More than plenty runtime and the weight is around 290 g. With the lighter batteries you will be able to find a balance on your car without having to add as much weight.

Also, mount your electronics further to the outside not all the way to the inside of the car.

I tell you i want to because i have never tried it and you guys are all saying how super smooth it is ....im kinda jealous....i just dont want another car like my A700 where if you look at it wrong it breaks (nothing breaks just everything pops off the ball studs).....so if by purchasing the extra strong yokomo parts and everything stays together...i might get one.

Thank you Christian. I've switched over all of my batteries to the 5300 65c thunderpower packs. I do run a shorty servo which I think is what has thrown the weight off so "violently".


The only issue I have with this car is I can not get the rear diff to stop leaking using 900 weight ae fluid. Is anyone else having this issue? Beyond that the car is perfect.

I can attest that the graphite steering blocks are indeed stronger.

I run Yokomo Diffs in my car. I would try something heavier. Last time I was there I ran 2000wt. Aside from that, regular build. Make sure you tighten everything really tight and that you use some oil or grease on the gasket. A little bit of leaking is ok. Don't overfill it, as most of the time, what we think is leaking is actually just seepage from overfilling the diff.
