I am very interested in the BD7 as it seems to perform quite well but I am concerned about the durability. I am running Xray currently and just to give you an idea I just returned from the IIC and ran the same 2012 in both Amateur and Stock and ran it hard all week and broke 0 parts! The Bd7 in mod just gets through the infield sections so much better then Paulies Xray it's hard to believe! Besides if I buy a Bd7 I will instantly drive more like Volker...right?

Simply put just don't it in the wall.

But yes you will instantly turn into Volker with this car. Volker in a novice class no problem. I think you guys are turning the durability issue into more of an issue than it really is. It's more fragile that the Xray hands down. I will never argue that. If you want a car that corners really well and is super easy to make fast this is the car. But be prepared to carry a spare of the important stuff in your bag. As well as if you have a really nasty accident your day might be done until Amain gets everything in stock. I have a massive bag of goodies just in case. If you are going to get super pissed that YOU hit something and break something there is a bigger problem.

I don't think anything is wrong, I just have two new complete sets of the Tamiya parts, and I really like their clip system. I figured I'd use them and save some money up front if they're a compatible part.

I'm curious how the car's durability compares to a stock Tamiya. On the 417 we had to put on a real bumper, alum c-hubs, titanium steering rods and steel CVD's to complete more than a few laps. After that it was nearly as solid as anything. If the front end needs to be hardened a bit to withstand a boards track, so be it.

Curious. See their European page for parts...

...looks like we'll have to put this on the setup station and measure...

Considering the only dcj compatible c hub is 6 degrees I think it's fair to say it comes with 6 degree hubs.

Speaking of c hubs, does anyone know a place that has them in stock? Banzai, futaba and ks are all out and I kind of need some. Lol.

This is a C code 413 in comparison with a 413W. Both parts are spares, not those of the kit.

Just got an email from futaba pro shop and I'm eating my words. The bd7 comes with 4 degree hubs and yokomo does NOT have 6 degree hubs available yet but will in the future. I find it interesting that the carpet base setup states 6 degree hubs yet they are not available... The yokomo euro site also states that b7-413w is a 6 degree hub...

I've watched you drive. You don't hit enough stuff to need all that.

You made an appearence on my computer at the IIC.

The only thing needed is a 4 caster block with the new design, that you can directly fit the dcjs!

I think there is no need for a 6 caster block...

By the way!!! Has someone a setup sheet from the yokomo team from the iic?

I'm sure that Volker will post something. Give it a week or so.

hey guys, so what's the verdict between graphite vs plastic? Curious to know if it's worth replacing :-)
