I have one, not much to really talk about. It works that's about all I can say and it seems to require slightly heavier weight to get the same feel as the yokomo diff.

I've used on on my xray... value for money is good, reliability not so as soon as you start using it with super-thick oils to make a spool-like diff... but as long as you remain reasonable, it's ok

hi paul,

believe me or not,
i was at this event and i know what its fact.
yannic used hitec lynx 4s!

for you: picture of yannics chassis with a better view to this receiver

and for comparison

sanwa receiver


and

hitec receiver

1 evidence:
sanwa receivers got the slots on the opposite side.

funny to read, a shirt counts more than a mans word

Default shocks

Hi,

Can I ask - Does the BD7 2015 run Short or Standard length shocks?

& Which springs would be suitable for tight outdoor bumpy tracks? [I have some "Ride" Red's from a tamiya 417 here].

Thanks.

I stand corrected. Interesting. So that new lynx actually is competition-worthy. I know of so many folks who had problems with the previous one (grey and green iirc, already multiplex I think). mmmh... cheers!

standard.

looks like everyone is using HPI silvers outdoor no matter what

(haven't tried myself tbh... not that my impressions matter anyway!)

The kit springs should be fine (pink and blue). Lots of setup sheets you may find will have people using the hpi silvers so try them if you like. I've got some myself, but I haven't felt the need to try them on my '15.
The combination I'm using mostly (although trying different combinations of the yokomo springs is on my list of things to do) is yokomo yellow front and blue rear. Car has been very fast and not too difficult to drive at my local outdoor tracks.

In other words, just make sure your dad owns Yokomo.

I found only the thin wheel bearings used with the DCJ are a (specific) must, and maybe a belt when yours is getting on a bit. Other than that just the usual, arms, hub carriers (you might want one or two caster values for tuning), uprights. The rest is covered by your bottomless toolbox full of leftover parts from all the cars you previously owned (washers, shims, screws, etc).

Why does it have to be someones dad? Regardless I was being helpful and answered his question, what he chooses to buy is entirely up to him.

I have only ever broken front caster blocks. But every time has been my fault having a fight with a track mark.
Which aluminium chassis people running for the 15?
