Are you sure your BD7 Black series came with aluminum servo horn? My BD7 Black Series 2015 doesn't include and I have to purchase it separately along with the aluminum floating servo mount.

Yes, Hong Kong is selling 15 black version with free floating mount. It's around $435 street price. Good deal.
Part number with b is black color, while non b is blue.

I fit one into my 2014 Version and I am almost certain that the 2014 and original bd7 have the same diffs so it should fit.

Pretty sure the free Floating servo mount is included separately by some vendors, not all
It's not really free, they adjust the price accordingly

There is also a BD7-2015 "Mibosport-Roche Edition"

As far as I know, so far all 15' kits are the same from Yokomo

I have never seen a Blue 2015 BD7
