Thank you.. I know Amain has it but I am in Taiwan so would be cheaper to get it from japan as I can save quite a bit. But worse case then ill just buy it from Amain. Funny thing is non of the japanese online stores sell the one I want which is weird.

Understand. There are also rumors of the car being discontinued... could explain it as the domestic market would be the first one to be hit

Good luck,
Paul

I've been running my aluminum chassis and I'm very impressed. My laps time slightly improved but overall my race times is more consistent. Car is way easier to drive now on carpet which in turn I believe helped with consistency. I have a excellence lab aluminum chassis on the way and will test it against the yokomo factory chassis.

I'm also running the Alloy Chassis on my BD7 '15' & find it great!

On Carpet, it just feels that it gives more Grip & makes the Car more Consistant to drive!

Has anyone tried the Forward Motor Conversion yet?

I tried FMC on both chassis, a little extra steering and less weight on the rear tire to prevent overheating. I like the car with standard setup.

I'm currently running the FMC on my BD7, but I fitted it on at the same time as Installing the Alloy Chassis.

The Car feels really Planted & the Backend feels so locked in..........it kinda feels now that the FMC takes abit of Steering away??

............I guess there's some more Testing required, with me trying it Back2back with the Std Motor position.

Which is exactly what it should do.

I could do with some more Steering, so I'll take the FMC off for this Wkd then.

I've tried the Short Shocks on the BD7 '14' & '15' & found them very good when there's enough Grip!
For Slower Stock Classes like 13.5 Blinky, I think there a 'must', as they can make your Car carry more Cornerspeed & give quicker Direction change!

They seem pretty good in 13.5 Boosted too, but personally, I find the Std length Shocks better to Drive for Modified though!

Care to share your 13.5 boosted setup? (including speedo/ratio setup...)

Thanks!

I have with mixed feelings. I don't believe the condition at my local track warrants me ever trying it again. Track time is limited for me and I got tired of experimenting with the short shocks after a few outings I reverted back to standard. Car feels better with standard shocks in medium conditions.

Combinations I've tried all on carpet medium to high traction
Short Shocks with Lower Towers
aeration
blue bladder
black bladder
single oring
double oring
FMC
carbon chassis
aluminum chassis
