I ran the Ride Reds, last year since the HPI silvers were unavailable, worked about as well as the silvers I borrowed a time or two.

Hello! I am new to the bd7 2016 family and hope i will enjoy this ride. I will run my 2016 outdoors on high speed asphalt with med-low grip. What springs do you think fit best for this condition? Thanks!//www.andrefossto.wordpress.com

I would recommend you get the RSD front bumper brace.

Also, any of the Yokomo upgrades are nice. If you run carpet, you should get the Yokomo aluminum chassis plate.

i think sub block is first important parts to you get.
asphalt FF 44.2 and RR 44.9 and 45.7
carpet FF 44.2 FR 44.2 singel and RR 45.7. weights in center 20g and front 20g would take be important to.

Have had some good luck with the Hobbypartz D770 Solar servo, but seems they always sell out. And suggestions on a good servo without spending a ton of $$.
Thanks

I've had good luck with Sanwa ERS-971 ( http://sanwa-denshi.com/rc/car/servo/ers-971.html )

Metal gears, plenty fast and strong. Mine suffered quite a few bad hits and are still going good with minimal backlash.

I tried them and they're not so good. After a month of use, they make a lot of buzzing noise.

Default Quick release battery holder/ strap

Hi,

I will be racing in a enduro event later on the year, it's a 6 hour race. Need a quick release battery holder or strap that will be secure enough for racing but super fast to in regards to changing lipos. Any suggestions? It's for bd7 -16 btw

Velcro? Velcro over straps and Velcro under the batteries? Unstrap it. Pull off the battery. Push down the new battery and strap it back in. Simple and easy. Just put one Velcro strap at the back of the battery and one at the front (underside) to prevent the battery from slipping out from the side. Velcro strap on top will hold it in.

Hi,
The one piece RearFront suspension mount used in this picture is the same as the one normally used for FrontFront? Or is it different?

looks like a standard 4.9 block with some more spacers, he is also running the diffs in the high position,
rear I am guessing it the narrow arm 7.9 block, I am also assuming no belt rubbing issues with the diff high, if I find some time tonight ill see if that's what it is, as I have all those blocks.

so it looks like a wide track is something worth trying,

I couldn't see what the FF block is but the FR block was the split 5.0
