So grey cells from gear chart also can be used?

I was thinking to get 106 spur and start with 40 pinion, I would get 5.3 tu start from and large tuning window, if grey areas from chert can be used, that what is meaning of them?

Email sent to address listed. I have a NIB BD-7 2015 I'm looking to get rid of.

That goes for everybody. If anyone is interested on a screaming deal for a BD-7 2015, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy Racing!

I'm 99% sure it is the same part. They give you new posts in case you've already trimmed your existing ones(great courtesy on the part of Yokomo). The rear posts need to be set significantly higher than before.

Lets just say that next ETS will be very interesting. I was at MIBOSPORT Cup this weekend and Viliami Kutvonen destroyed the field with new Awesomatix. Rheinhard and Harper could not keep the pace at all. I am very interested how the battle between Völker and Kutvonen will turn out. Looking how A800 worked on the track the new BD7 has to be a significant improvment.

The new BD7 2016 is a high grip designed car, Volker was about 5 secs quicker than his next nearest rival every run, will definitely be good to see the drivers and cars match up head to head at the first round of the ETS

Seemed like RV struggled a bit last season on that ETS black rug, as used at Mibo

And now in the US we have a softer CRC rug too

2016 is going to be interesting for sure

hey guys I am having an issue with my bd7 constantly breaking steering blocks and having the bottom king pin ripped out. Anyone have a way of making them stronger or is there an aluminum option?

This is exactly what I've been thinking and it's kept me from letting go of my heavily hopped up '15. Am I an idiot working to convince myself that sticking with the '15, with it's small bore shocks and standard design, may be wise given the fact that I race outdoors on medium grip and often bumpy asphalt?

If I raced carpet I'd be all over the '16.

The xray has short shocks and has always looked like the best/easiest car when grip is on the lower side. The new car should be more stable if anything and handle more like the xray which seem to have gotten to grips with their shock/spring package. Yokomo V1 short shocks were a disappointment and were not consistent at all.
