I have the BD7 2015 Black Edition. I want to go to 2.5 rear toe. I know I need to change my rear/rear suspension mount and i have found the part on Amain but it is of the blue variety. Does any one know if/where they sell the same part in black?

I ran the car yesterday for a few packs with a brand new prev-gen diff, filled with 5K... after 8 packs, no leaks. The first few laps were definitely a handful, probably as it took a few efforts for all the internals to set in. But zero leak either on pulley or the outdrives side. I had soaked the paper gasket in moly grease, and sanded the diff half so it was perfectly flat. Looks like it paid off

Will a 14 front gear diff fit a 15
Or does the 15 need two of its own?

Diffs are interchangeable between all versions of the BD7 and the BD5.

FYI, I have a set of BD7 short shocks I am trying to sell:

FS: BN Yokomo BD7 2014 short shocks w/towers

The included shock towers are for the BD7 2014, but the shocks would also work just fine on a BD7 2015 with the appropriate shock towers.

the 14 diff drops right in the 15 rear bulkheads... don't see why the front would be any different...

what is the single suspension geometry adjustment you found to have the biggest effect on the car's balance, guys?
