The '15 diff gasket also fits the new diff, even if there is new part number for the '16 diff gasket. I'm using the '15 diff gasket in a '16 diff with no problems.

Could anyone confirm then comment and explain to me, please?
the most mistakes are stiffen up the front and making the rear to soft, will have a very sensitive car in front.

if the car is to sensitive, try the follow basic things.

softer front springs, at least equal to rear or little bit softer in front.
This make the car softer in corner entry but more steer in mid to exit corner, so less aggressive entry.
remove washers on the steeringrack ballstuds to give less entry steering, less aggresive corner entry.
use at least 2000 to 3000 in diff.
and on some tracks reduce steering on transmitter 90-85% of max steering.


You should have a hole differnt car ;-)

thanks. i really don't see much of a difference either. the studs are still 8mm apart and the posts are the same distance apart. i havent measured the length of the steering arms yet though but they look the same as the 15 also.

Is it possible they are lower height (narrow) on the bearing end than previous vers
Hard to tell from pics ?

16


15

The steering post part number is still BD-201P7. But it might be a bearing manufacturer change. I know the steering bearings in my old 13/14 kit are much better then the ones in my 15. Who knows really ???

Plus, in its stock form, the car uses the original BD7 RS bell crank arm and bridge... So I think it's safe to assume they are pretty much the same as the BD7 14-15 parts. Maybe a little modification on how it is machined, or like Evochick said, different bearings.

-- EDIT--

Went through what's included in my conversion kit and there are no bell crank parts included. So I have to assume that the original BD7 14-15 parts are meant to be used with it and are thus fully compatible with the 16 spec car.

only the bell crank bridge isn't the same from '14-'15 because of lower topdeck

so if you want to mount the bridge you must buy the new one B7-201B6, also the plastic one included in the kit (from BD7 RS) can't mount!

I've seen 2 built; one with '15 aluminum bell cranks and one with the plastic that comes in the kit, both seem to work.

This is correct, the new car has a lower top deck, so Yokomo will probably offer the bridge as an option part.

For the guys who've ran their 2016's, what's your spring choice for asphalt? I've read that even the stock silver ones are sometimes too stiff for carpet.

Any feedback?

I don't know what you have seen, but I have both versions of BD7, 2015 and 2016, and both versions of bell crank bridges...and they are different!!!

The 2015 version is 18 cm high, 2016 version is 16 cm high, please see the attachments

The plastic bridge in 2016 kit is 18 cm high like the 2015 alluminium version, so it can't mount...it's not a good thing
