What did you expect?

You're the first who got the kit and ask about what to upgrade when you build the kit?!

Everyone has to start somewhere - it's not like his purchase kept others from getting one.

Not necessarily must haves, but titanium screws, titanium tie rods, and ceramic bearings are good upgrades. Ask guys at your track what springs and tires.

Getting my kit soon - aside from the Yokomo springs for the 2016 shocks, what other brands will fit?

This one?

It's supposed to be good - and Ronald Völker uses it as well:

We use the direct mount servo for the BD7. It is a Highest DLP650 in another case. We have also used the "normal" highest DLP650 and they have been the best servos we've ever tried. Also very durable.

The servos are Sanwa SSR compatible, so if you have a Sanwa/Airtronics M4S or M12/12S, you can use the fastest SSR mode on the radio. Not many servos other than specific Sanwa/Airtronic are SSR compatible.

Ronald Volker also uses the servo.

I have a 2016 on order, ordering options now. Can someone confirm the springs that come in the 2016 kit? The manual says silver is that in fact correct?

Thank you, I just checked your site, looks like you don't have the 2016 aluminum chassis in stock.

Yes, Kit springs it sylver sylver

I use the springs xray, because I had no other springs Yokomo. 2.8-2.5 front and 2.6 rear goes well.

The Sylver are too soft on carpet
