so its something worth trying if traction is down a little.

Hello Beth. Thanks for the info. I'm sure it will be useful at a time
Anyway, are you still running 1K diff oil on the test or thicker?

Looking at the shocks set up, I've been thinking of trying the SLF short shocks set to lower its CG
Anyone tried them yet? Any suggestions?

One more question, anyone figured out how to adjust the included belt tensioner?
Thank you

I always start with 2K and work my way up as needed.

I have the Slf shorts on my 15, you must buy the option short towers for the 2015. I race mainly on carpet medium to high traction smooth surface so it suits me.

The tensioner is non adjustable, works in the higher rpm ranges to keep the belt tensioned.

By the way, post race inspection shows all parts still in best condition, no diff oil leaks, no shocks oil leaks. Great car!
Congrats on your success with a your new car.

You can. I just wouldnt.
They are not a very strong servo.

Something futaba anything from an s9551 up is much stronger and more reliable.

The Savox SC1251MG and the Futaba S9551 are nearly identical in speed, torque, and footprint. Both will work equally well in the BD7 and any other 1/10 electric class for that matter.

Savox 1251 and 1252 Have almost the same spec of futaba 9551 but for durability I'll go with futaba.
