Just an update after switching to the graphite steering blocks I have had ZERO breakages or issues with the car. I ran a few packs last night with some buddies doing some pretty rough racing just playing around and the car held up superbly and was as good when we were done as when we started. I'm currently waiting on my aluminum servo horn and graphite rear arms/ hubs to get here. All I've charged from the original kit setup is rear inner pivot height and the car is pretty good and very easy to drive. I made the right choice in switching to yoko and wish I would've done it sooner.

Just a quick one for the BD7 Guru's

Does anyone have a part number for the Graphite BD5/7 Castor blocks that ARE compatable with DCJs?

Thanks in advanced.

These are the only graphite c hubs that I'm aware of and they are 4 degree and not the stock 6 degree on the bd7.

There isn't any graphite DCJ c hubs. You need to bevel the edges on the graphit c hubs for it to work.

Hayato's car looked like it had the best rotation in the 13.5 class, too bad his fan shorted out in the mod main, it was a good race with kevin up until then. I was impressed with the way the cars looked on track, unimpressed by how little it took them to end up OFF track

Kit comes with 40.5 but yes we mainly switch over to the 39.5

Order the Battery holder!!!
Order the weird stuff. Lower kingpin holder screws, Try to get a 4x6x1 washer for the lay shaft.

MMMMmm I can't think of anything else other than the usuals.

Ok, so from reading some of the above posts, there are a lot of different assumptions etc about the car.

1- The car comes with 4d C-Hubs, not 6d.
2- The car comes with 39.5 rear arms, and these are the only arms you will ever see being used on the car
3- they do have carbon C-hubs coming, both in 4d and 6d that are the dcj type

For everyone, check this out: https://www.facebook.com/#!/teamyokomo/notes

Some notes etc on the BD7

As for upgrades, here is what I have fitted on my Dad's car and would definately recommend:

-Graphite Front Arms
-Graphite Rear Arms
-Graphite Front Knuckles
-Graphite Rear Hubs
-44.2 FF block
-45.7 RR block
-41.3 RF split blocks
-ys-7hg Blue O-rings for shocks
-ys-8hd Bladder for shocks
-Kyosho O rings for the rear diff
-Spec R double joint Uni's, or Tamiya ones

Other upgrades, more for apprerance are:
- Blue rear driveshafts
-Titanium screw kit
-Titaunium turnbuckles
-Carbon bumper mount


Hope this stops some of the confusion about the car,

Cheers,

Antoni

Correct except the car comes with 413W which is 6 degree castor blocks and are DCJ compatible. The 4 degree castor blocks are 413 and 413G (graphite) and need to be dremelled to fit DCJ.
