Need help! My BD7'15 rear end to loose, I have ton of front grip and steering, but rear end doesn't feel planted and slides in high speed corners. Our track layout is much the same as RCaddict (TITC 2015) track. Asphalt track, outdoor!
See pic for my current setup:

If you are running on carpet with medium-low grip, you can try adding rear toe (3 degrees instead of 2.5 degrees.) Also, I would recommend trying the normal Yokomo pink/blue springs instead of HPI silvers, since you are running on carpet and not asphalt.

Go to standard wheel base at the front 0.5mm and 0.5mm and go back to 3.5mm block at the front and it will be sorted

My rear is the same 2notches slack from centre but front now 4 notches slack from centre. Instead of 2. So front diff is slightly higher than rear.some people say they don't notice any difference with duffs high or low. But it does mean the shafts are back a little more.

Maybe try more toe on the front. 0.5 isn't much so try 1 or 1.5

Also, double check your droop and ride height. Your car may not be rolling efficiently thus possibly looking traction.

Also add more front droop then try softer rear by going to hole 1 or 2 on the rear shock tower.

hey guys I just built a spare differential for my bd7 15

I ordered the reference called out in the spares parts list the one that ends with GS

except it's not the same as the one in the kit its looks like an older version there is no oring for instance although it seems to work perfectly fine on the workbench once I put some lonestar magic in it as well as broke it in on the drill

what is the proper reference I need to order next time I think I will keep this one as a front one with 2.5 million grade oil

thank you, Paul

Anyone know where I can find a toe chart? Also, where can I find where it tells me the poundage of the springs? I'm new to the car, not sure what spring is stiff or soft.

Just leaks more w/2k-5k cst oil than the new ones. (they still leak a bit), but if you plan to run it with 1million cst or putty in the front it won't matter.(probably won't leak)
