Thanks!

I'm going to use this car for USGT, any one have a set for a large med/high grip asphalt track? Specially gearing, coming from AE, I'm sure it's a little different.

Is it really necessary to get the floating servo mount and steering rack or can I stay with what the kit came with?

I would sometimes look at Axon! i switch from Panaracer to Leespeed to Axon ...

For me is the Axon Spur and Leespeed Titan pinion best combo

I posted my first bd7 setup at www.andrefossto.wordpress.com hopefully it can help someone with the setup of the new 2016 car.

For me the car was very stable at high speed. The track was super low grip. A unprepped outdoor asphalt track wich takes time to build up grip.

Correct, Xray only fits when you're using half the screws (could theoretically lead to some wobble - don't know if it's a issue in reality though).

So Axon gears fit? Even with normal button head screws? IIRC some spurs were a little too wide for that (on the inner part, not the teeth), that's why I haven't tried anything but Panaracer yet. That and the fact that Axon doesn't (yet?) sell the size I'd like...

Panaracer, Leespeed and Axon are the same width at hole


I have with all Spur screws no problems for about stand duck

Panaracer 2.01mm
Axon 1.98mm
Leespeed 2.08mm

What is interesting is the weight

Panaracer 114Z 4.2g
Axon 116Z 3.4g
Leespeed 115Z 4.22g

Axon Spur fit well

Great to hear. Now I only need them to make some smaller TC spurs.

okay, I've seen it ... axon have only Spur 100-116
I would otherwise recommend Leespeed Spur... I was better pleased with this as Panaracer regarding quality and durability

Need to find a 42mm or preferably 44mm front DCJ that will work in the BD7 ..... any one know of one?

CSO shows one to fit the Yokomo but really unsure of the quality or their fit.

Appreciate any help for my project. Thanks

For those running the floating battery mounts how does this compare to taping the battery under the chassis

And is there a cheaper alternative than the yokomo ones

It's supposed interfere less with chassis flex. And I think it's easier and nicer to operate. Although I have modified it a little and will continue to do so, in order to get rid of the tape and use velcro instead.

On my 2014, I tried the Spec-R battery holder. Didn't fit perfectly, but could be made to work. I much prefer what I now have over that.
