No you're right a driver like Ronald Volker does, top guys will win with anything, a good club car is what's important for most people and that's where most the sales will come from

I agree on the 2013 car being a very good club race car on our indoor asphalt track, had the most fun in RC in several years with it. Worked well at TITC also.

Was disappointed with the out of the box performance of the 14 and skipped the 15 since it seemed so similar. Have a 16 now and after struggling looking for a good setup am finally happy with it.

Still regret selling my 13 though...

Tamiya have finally stopped copying them with the 419X so you know it must be bad lol
The number of '16 cars for sale in the UK as we move through the summer season points to a car that wasn't as competitive. A few have now gone over the the TC7 and are enjoying that far more, easier to tune and small changes in setup actually show up on track for them.

These are all drivers who've run them on several different types of carpet at different large race series and now larger series on outdoor tracks.

We have found the 2016 to be very good on the new CRC black high grip carpet.

I would personally like to see Manufacturers come out with two versions of their cars like you see in offroad, one for high grip carpet and really high grip asphalt and one for onroad low to med grip. I would say the BD7 has been going more and more towards a high grip car since the 2013 car was released

What would be the difference between the two in touring car?

In Off road you have mid motor, rear motor, bodies, wings ........ and are buying two cars to race.

We have all that except the rear motor part and we only buy one car.

Carbon / aluminium chassis would probably be one of the differences in TC.

I don't believe you can get the original Mr.Roche branded ones any more which is a shame as they were very strong, their Radtec branded ones are ok but not as strong as the latest Yokomo ones and the original Mr.Roche.

I'm thinking about getting some DCJ's for the rear, but would you stick to the Yokomo ones? If so can someone confirm that the ones with part number YOKBD-0101RW are the latest version (as they seem to be a BD5 part).

Thanks.

Yes, BD-010RW is the latest (and only) version. Most people don't use DCJs in the rear.

Thanks Dirk. Yes, not too many in use on the rear, but I noted a few pages back someone using them on the black ETS, high grip carpet and thought it might help keep the rear end 'free'...it kind of made sense in my head, but we'll see
