If your consistent lap after lap. With pro guys that is a lot but not with average joe.

yes, the reality of life is that we will never be as fast as Ronald Volker, but on a good day at my current ability I can get consistent enough to say yes the 2 seconds the car was faster over 6 minutes was worth it for me.

May be worth waiting for BD7-15 Alu chassis to do this upgrade ?

for carpet probably..

I purchased the non slip rubber battery pad for my 14, I really liked this on the new car. The new battery mount is nice but I wouldn't change a chassis just for that feature.

Cool

Looks like A-main has a Yokomo sale going on right now, plus free shipping

I know they also have bike stuff, so that may put some of you off though

'14 and '15 chassis doesn't line up, the distance between the bulkhead screws are different.

yep just confirmed the same, the distance is narrower,
Everything else lines up fine. (not that really helps anyone...)

So if i want to run two orings in the shocks which ones do i need to get Ys-7hg?
Do you need to run a different guide to fit it all in?
Thanks
Mick

No, my 15 went together much better then my old 13/14 did......
It required much less or no shimming on everything.

As a minimum for a build I would buy
B7-S8H
YS-7HG
YS-8HD
BD-S2W
B7-203B (or Roche equivalent)
Roche CVD's
BD-500GOB (experiment for yourself you prefer these over the kit red or Kyosho)

everything else is just a nice to have depending on how much bling you want.

If you don't buy B7-BTCB you can just use 0.1 or 0.2mm shims on the bulk head caps to stop the bearings from being tight.

that's all I can think of for the min...

Its race day....

Beth.
Thanks for sharing Beth
I have to wait for another two weeks to build the car then

From browsing around I could not find anybody I know have B7-S8H, BD-S2W and BD-500GOB in stock but I found the rest on the list
Could anyone tell me where can I order online of yokomo parts from? It would be better if I could find online store that specialising in yokomo parts because no one sells them in my country
Or perhaps anyone willing to help me in getting those parts needed to build my yokomo?
Thank you
