Don't need it. Just get the aluminum chassis.

Close to the same. But if I had to choose it would be the turnbuckles as they are higher up on the chassis.

Since the BD7 14' and 15' is without out the right lay shaft support, do you think this modification is good or bad idea?

Or will this open a whole new can of handling problems and ultimately damage the spur gear or lay shaft?

OK, thanks for your reply.
About aluminium chassis, i am so doubted if use it in carpet track with tight layout and medium traction use panaracer carpet as control tires.

Best regards

I've used it on carpet and asphalt. Is a good setup tool when having high traction. It makes the car drive easier at the same pace.

Check Andrew Hardman's 13.5 setup for snowbirds.

You can just remove the right lay shaft support. Did that with a 4,5 bosted modified car and dit not brake any more spur

Andrews car looked great on mains day. He struggled a bit to find the right setup for his 13.5 car but it looked pretty good when it counted.

Ok, I think I have found the way to build the perfect smooth 15 diff, that doesn't leak after a while

I really wasn't happy with how tight the kit red o rings were so was using the black GOB o rings. I had a little success with these but would eventually leak after a few weeks of use and required a rebuild. After a little bit of experimenting I have found that Kyosho Red o rings, were a much better fit in the 15 diff, but would swell a little and make the outdrives tight over the course of a weeks. The solution was then to remove the really small outer washer. This just gave the Kyosho O ring a little more room freeing it up.

So far so good and no leaks.....
