Just remove the 0.02 washer. I havnt run it on both my 14 and 15 due to it locking up the assembly.

My other thought was what spur gear are you running ?? as only the thinner ones fit like panaracer and leespeed, you can use thicker ones with different screws.

Is the aluminum chassis worth getting?

med to high traction environments and especially carpet, YES. I would look into excellence lab chassis also. I have both and I prefer the excellence lab over the factory.

Thank you. Why do you prefer the Excellence Lab over the factory one?

It's not as stiff as the factory one, works great in a broader ranger of conditions. Another reason is that it's stupid light, great if you're keeping weight down if your track allows it.

Depends on what toe blocks your require for racing. In most case for the front the norm would be 4.2 and 3.5 or stock 3.5 and 3.5, the norm for rears 2.0 and 6.4 for 3 deg and 2.0 and 5.7 for 2.5 deg. Costs per toe block is $11-13 bucks plus shipping. So that's really up to you. I like to have every toe block for every occasion but that's just me so the excellab is a good deal for someone like me.

I had heard that the 2 level chassis were prone to bending. Was told that the Chassis Avid makes for the Xray would be ideal for the BD7. But unfortunately the don't make one for the BD7 yet.

Where I race at RSD, there's aluminum chassis galore along with the AVID chassis. Both companies are Texas locals so you do see a lot of testing. Regardless you can break anything and I've seen only one bent aluminum chassis due to a brutal high side. Anyways back to the excellab chassis, i'm not a sponsor driver and it is thin on the edges but so far I have zero issues with bending on carpet and asphalt. I did have some nasty crashes also and fortunately nothing but scratches and chassis is good to go. The guys running AVID chassis looks to have great success also. Aluminum sees to be the norm now for med to high traction, at least in my area.

I run the RW type of spur gears. also have the 3 bearings in the layshaft disintegrate on me today, so im getting in touch with CML Distribution tomorrow

the standard RW gears are too thick if you use the stock screws, you can use flathead screws with them to get more clearance,
My guess would be that you destroyed the bearings that way, or had the belts way too tight.

Okay, I'm having trouble deciding Which Aluminum chassis to get. The Factory Yokomo or the Excellence Labs. I hear pros and cons of each one. Would appreciate some more input to hopefully sway me one way or the other. If anyone knows of any other manufacturer who makes one by all means let me know. Thanks
