Default BD7 RS stock shock springs

anyone know what weight the stock shock springs are on the BD7RS? Just got it and am looking to set it up to my local track TQRC in Chino. i found a setup on Petit that calls for pink and blue Yokomo springs. any suggestions?

thanks

Not sure what works well at TQ Raceway but the typical Yokomo TC spring setup for carpet is Pink fronts and Blue rears. I ran Blue springs front and rear at IIC which worked very well for me. You can pick up 2 sets of Blues, 1 set of Pinks, and 1 set of Yellows to deal with the various grip conditions and layouts at your local track.

I raced my 2014 BD7 for the first time last weekend. I was impressed by how much speed it carries through the corners and to the sharpness of the steering. Adjusting it was also very easy as it reacts to every setup change. I knew instantly if what I had done worked or not. Very very impressed by the car so far.

I finally got all options for my BD7 15 except for BD-500GOB
What other option that I could use in place of BD-500GOB?
If I would like to go for B7-BTCB, how many of those do I need to complete the car? Sorry for asking this question because my kit isn't arrive yet but I want to be ready when it does
Thanks for sharing

You can use the oring that comes with the diff and see if it leaks. (I am not sure which oring comes with the 2015 kit)

I have found the orange P5 orings to work best, which can be purchased under the kyosho brand from amain.

If you cant get the GOB, I would probably just use the kit ones with a slightly thinner oil. (or Kyosho with very thin oil)

I was curious and had to rebuild all my diffs anyway, so I rebuilt my 1K diff with the kit red seals, and while smooth and doesn't leak, felt about 1600-1800 in weight with 1k oil in it.

The smoothest diff out of the 4 was the new 15 diff with the GOB seals, closely followed by the old diff with GOB seals.

you will need 4 B7-BTCB

Do you need to run a different guide to fit it all in?
Thanks

Yes you will need to run the thin guide BD-S2W with Ys-7hg orings.

Anyone got a kit apart that can measure the length of the hinge pins, or know what they are? I need to make up a set of spares.
Thanks
Mick
