Yes you can use a 15 motor mount on a 14 lower deck,

and yes the 13 and 14 bulkheads are interchangeable

Buying a second hand '15 and then the conversion kit, you should have just bought a '16, I would not assume it not to be more expensive, and then you had a 100 pct. new car.

Do you need to apply black grease onto the inner suspension arm pin ball?

Can someone give me a good setup for a very bumpy indoor racetrack with medium/high grip? At the moment I am driving a BD7 '15. Is it good to switch to the '16 although it is so bumpy? Maybe the short shocks are too short for this track.

Misplaced my 2014 BD7 Short Shock supplement manual for the shock lengths.

What are the front and rear shock lengths in mm?

Cheers.

I havnt ran my 16 yet, but you can get the longer shock towers for the 16 to run the standard shocks. I am still waiting for these parts so i can run them back to back.
