I used the x o-rings from traxxas on my 2014 and worked great.

The upper deck shims will raise the plate until it's rubbing the belt?

Close, but not quite. For extra security, I have run the motor mount spaced up 0.5mm for extra clearance. However, so far I run my top deck with the steering bridge and the motor mount top deck screw. This is a good tuning option when you want to run without the screws and you want no interference from the motor mount top deck post.

I've only run my BD7 16 for 1 Race Meeting so far, but I have'nt seen any signs of Wear on the Belts whatsoever!
Are you running your Belt Adjustment Cams in the Standard Kit positions?

Has anyone Experimented on their Shock Setup on the 16 yet?

yeah, my friend been running the standard position since he had the kits about 10 days, say about 8 batteries a day, he changed the rear belt more than once already.
he mentioned that the original bearing is suck which is one of the factors and with a smaller pulleys, both contributed

The 2016 is my 5th BD7 in a row now & to be honest, I've always found that the 'Kit' Setup position of the Belt Adjustment Cams are far too Tight, virtually making the Front & Rear sections of the C/F Chassis to lift!
I think some Guys are running them 3 Clicks looser on the Front & Rear, but I've been running 2 Clicks looser for a long time now & found it works great!
I have'nt had to Replace the Belts for ages & it massively Frees the Transmission up, which is an extra Benefit if your running in Stock Classes!

With regards to running the New 2016, initially to me, it feels like it has noticeably more Overall Grip & is alot easier to Drive over a 5 minute Run, than the BD7 15 was! I'd really got to a good place over recent months though, with my 2015, which Pacewise, is currently still Quicker........more Testing with the 16 should Resolve that though!��

I have a few hours on my 16, and run with many BD16 racers
No one is having any belt issues

Adjusting belt slack may be the cure eh?
