Default 2015 Black edition

Really loving how the 2015 handles. So much corner and transition speed than my 417 V5 and Arc R10. Manual is easier to follow than other car makers. Not to mention how nice its finish are

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

Thanks
3.5 fr is the narrowest you can go unless you want to go really narrow with a 2.0. The problem is there is nothing in between 2.0 and 3.5.
There is a 4.5 mm hex that will make the from 1mm narrower.

hello, i am looking into this car and have a few questions:
  1. what is the difference between the B7-BBP14 Super-precision Bearing Set 2014-2015 and B7-BBC15 BD7-2015 Ceramic bearing set and which bearings are included in the kit?

  2. is the B7-BTCB Aluminum Belt Teansion Adjust Cam a usefull upgrade or just weight and bling?

  3. what material are the included turn buckles?

  4. what is the use of BD-010RW Rear Double Joint Universal Shaft i thought DJ was only useful for the front while turning?

  5. is BD-500GA Aluminum gear diff shaft an upgrade for the kit part or a spare?

  6. i see a lot of people advice this bladder: YS-8HD Fluorine Rubber Hyper Diaphragm what does this improve over the kit one?

thank you!

The bearings with the 15 are great. Just clean and relube
It comes with aluminum belt tentioner
Steel turnbuckle ti saves weight
Aluminum Gear diff post saves a little weight.

The standard shock bladder works fine in terms of performance but swells and makes rebuilding the shock difficult.

The black bladders last for ages, and make building shocks easier.

The 2013 to the 2014 was barely any different (I have both), whilst the 2015 theoretically has lower CG and differences in shocks (volume). If you already run a 2013 I am also interested to know though not sure you will be over the moon with a 2015. Would be very interested myself to find more input from real world owners of the black edition and 2015. I have decided to wait this one out for the moment and continue to run the black and 2013.

I have all 3. I also agree 13 and 14 not much difference. But with the 2015 I installed the front motor conversion and feel a big difference. Car has more grip and is more responsive.
The fastest guy at our local track also have all three cars and he feels 2015 is much better.

I'm rocking my BD7 2014. I'll give input on the 2015 compared to 2014 I will be testing my BD7 2015 next weekend.

If I bought a BD7 2015 what extra stuff do I need or is it good out of the box?

I have had all 3 and I can say I got faster with each car. I now have 2 15s with FMC and the cars are fast and very planted on carpet
