Yes, but the older short shocks were smaller in diameter.

Will the new car work better in slower classes? Is there a price on the new kit or conversion?

Prices have been posted within the last couple of days on this very thread - and since it's not out yet, people here haven't driven it yet.

Yokomo BDs have always been awesome in stock or mod
As are most other leading cars

Here in the mid-west we don't see many guys racing with the yokomo's in slower classes. This is why I was asking the differences in handling between the 2015/16 cars. I want to try either car to see how they handle

A newbie question
Is there a way to take out the bearing in the steering and replace them? Or it press fit and u need to buy the whole steering assembly?

Which one? Cranks or rack?

Never mind, they're all replaceable, you just have to fiddle a bit.

They are replaceable but rather hard to remove original ones especially if you do not have a press. They fit tightly! New ones will slip in no problem once you remove the original ones. I had to heat mine to get it off. Be aware once you heat you will loose the blue ionisation colour - it will turn silver! Good luck.

P.S. I changed bearings on mine as I needed a quick repair, but ordered the new steering parts and had them replaced anyway. its up to you though.

Are you sure it's tightness and not some bonding solution? You might be able to use acetone and let it sit for a while to make sure the bonding agent is dissolved. Or if you want to avoid losing the colour, you can try freeze and release, it's liquid nitrogen in a can. Spray the bearing and it should drop out.

When did it change? The first BD7 (2014) had 41 tooth diff crowns. Did it change when the new diff came out? That's probably the smallest diff tooth count on the market right now (and seems pretty small at that).
Personally I prefer an irrational internal ratio otherwise you'll have the same tooth and the same belt tooth running in all the time. Something like 19/37. Even these have at some point a common multiple, but in my opinion it's better for longer lasting drive trains.

The BD7 has always had 20/40T pulleys. They changed to a new diff case with the '15, but kept the 40T diff size. It is not until now that they are changing them.
