Picked up the Samix aluminum chassis for my BD7 14. It's slightly narrower than the stock BD7 '14 carbon fiber chassis.

Do what Ed did on post 6063.

I eliminated the center post entirely and the bearings eventually got destroyed. Ed's modification keeps the steering post strength while removing front chassis stiffness.

Has anyone had good results running the short arm suspension parts on the bd7. I ran it on mine on carpet and when the traction went up it traction rolled bad.

Yes, they worked great at our track
But we seldom have more than Med grip at TQRC

Short arms on a 14' with Alu chassis was super easy to drive

I doubt it was the short arms, as they will actually take away grip compared to the normal arms. What chassis and springs were you using?

I searched this thread and only found a few references to the forward motor conversion. Anybody end up running the FMC with great success? Looking at giving it another try this winter on carpet but sounds like many have given it a try and gone back to the standard configuration?

It hasn't been released and I imagine if anybody knows they're keeping quiet. Yokomo have been very busy with the release of their new 4wd offroad buggy the YZ-4 which was just announced. Time for some patience.

Hand polished alum chassis
Titanium screws and tie rods

1,2,3 rear diffs
Forward motor kit
Djc's
Carbon chassis
All the springs and I think 2 of each set
Some hinge pin holders(different degrees never used)
Parts including ball cups, arms, diff cam adjusters etc.

Bunch of stuff. I'll be posting pics in the coming days but if you are interested shoot me a PM

BD7 14's I will be testing out tomorrow. Time to prepare for the upcoming AOC Yatabe race. BD7 black will be running a standard chassis, the BD7 blue will be running Samix aluminum chassis. I will testing various springs, X-Gear, and Yokomo.

I also decided to move away from the typical all white paint scheme. Pink is the new white

Hi everyone,

Please someone who own a 2014 can tell me the distance between this two holes on the chassis (millimeters) ?

I know it's 40mm on the 2013.

Thanks,

Jerem
