The steering bridge I can't say myself I have ever tried, always left them out on my 14 and didn't bother putting it on the 15. The upper deck rear screw tried on occasions to remove but always tend to go back to leaving it on.

For people with the BD7 '15,

Are the plastic shock guides like the '14 ones? Or have they changed the tolerances?

Quite a bit I was actually under weight and need to add about 7 grams.

I don't remember but I Don't think it's more than 25g but even in kit form, the car is ridiculously under weight. There is a reason all those BD7 weights are used.....

True.

Some of the kit screws are however on the marginal side in regards to length. Titanium screws are not a necessity. I replaced all the kit screws with a length I considered more satisfying in steel and still under weight (we've got a 1380gr limit).

The new diff just has O-rings to prevent it from leaking. Other than that, its technically the same exact 14 diff.

I run S9551's , I got one when I first got back into RC 3 years ago, and hasn't missed a beat, so I got a second when I decided to turn my 14 into my VTA car, I tried the Savox but just didn't like the feel.

What blocks do you use for the front end if you want to narrow the car at the arm and keep the arm sweep?

I am currently using the 4.2 fr and the 3.5fr.

Thanks
