I am looking for a chassis fan mount for my bd7 16 any suggestions. I see Marka and samix make but for previous years. Will either of these fit or is there something better out there?
The samix fits perfectly on the 2016.

Just got my 2016 and Nice! Appears to be prebuilt drive shafts/axle assemblies.

Yokomo BD's have always had pre-assembled axles and diffs
make sure to dis-assemble, clean & locktite as necessary

I've been having an issue with the diff leaking around the gasket from one day. Are you guys doing anything special to ensure a good seal around the gasket?

Try smearing a thin layer of AE Shock slime on a clean gasket and clean diff halves

Worked perfectly for me ;-)

Do you slime both sides of the gasket?

which is just a copy of the spec r one

http://www.redrc.net/2015/02/spec-r-...-option-parts/

does it really matter...

on a another note, does anyone else notice how the SMJ short silvers (3.0) feel very identical to the Yokomo kit silvers, I am yet to try them on the track yet to feel the driving difference.

It's not a copy of Spec R part, it's the same part. We have been working with Spec R for over 6 years with OEM stuff.

Default BD7 2016 Shocks

Hi,

I am having to remove air from my 2016 shocks every 1-2 meets.

I have black bladders, blue O-rings (Lubed with Green Slime), titanium shafts & and drilled cap for 0% rebound.

Anyone else experiencing the same? I haven't noticed any leaking, but I suspect is being sucked in around the shaft.

Cheers,

Brett

It of course depends on how good you build the shocks in the first place, but I think with the blue o-rings that you just have to accept to built (or just top off) the shocks regularly.

Maybe every 1-2 meet seems too often, but depending on how you build your shocks and how the tolerances are in the shocks, AND if your training sessions are long, it may not seem that extreme.

In my opinion, the shocks with all upgrades and the blue o-ring are pure race shocks with the least friction possible, not to provide leak free shocks (even if you write you have not noticed any leaking)

Maybe you could try the kit o rings for a couple of times, to see if the air maybe originates from elsewhere.

Looked all over and can't find it. Does anyone have a spring chart for the short Yokomo springs?
