I think BD7 is a fast car, but we have to change some ideas on setup that worked well with older BD7, now we have to work in a different way.

In my opinion we have the best results working on the roll center of the car, a thing that with older models was never changed, at least for me.

I made several tests with different tires, Sorex, Hotrace, Volante and LRP, and sometimes the BD7 works better with higher roll center, sometimes with lower, it depends on tires and asphalt condition.

A "must to have" is the 1-piece FR suspension block, for me it works always better on asphalt than the separate ones.

Another thing is to cut the topdeck in the front, specially with LRP G32 it have better corner entry.

If you want you can try this setup: http://site.petitrc.com/reglages/yok...vorno20160512/

I won a race with margin on the strongest local driver of the track, who runs with a T4. Maybe it can be useful also for you.

Hi Damon, do you have a picture of the cut top deck? I'd like to see what and how much you cut.

Thanks,
Oliver

yes, especially in corner entry

it works better with tires that aren't aggressive, like LRP, Hotrace, and so on

with Volante or Sorex I prefer the uncut standard or the new thin B7-00316H

Default Which DCJ are these?

After ordering both new and old Yokomo DCJ kits, I still don't have the right parts. So it's begs the question, what are these? The pins and barrels are much smaller than the Yokomo bits.

Lawrence they wont fit easily, RW spurs are a fraction wide to fit inside the carrier with standard screws,

I checked my spur collection for you and only have what you need in 64p spurs, the lowest 48P I could find was 72T

If the yokomo do not fit, they are definitely aftermarket. Could be Roche, Arrowmax, Smokem Racing, Radtec, Yeah Racing etc. Sorry not much of a help. I think you would be better off buying a new set of DCJ's!

Just been reading the RED RC coverage of the worlds and there are a couple of mentions of the soon to be released BD8 - so not a 'year' evolution, i.e. BD7 14,15 &16.

Has there been much speculation on what additions there will be? I assume the Samix/Techra style suspension mounts will be adopted, but what else? Maybe reverting to a slightly higher bulkhead set up to reduce the driveshaft plunge a little, lose the 'X' braces? Hopefully there won't be a wishbone / C-Hub / steering knuckle change as I've just built up a nice load of spares lol.

I can't see them changing the shocks after the SLFII introduction, so that really leaves chassis (weave / shape / thickness), but again this area has recently been updated with the introduction of the high and low traction chassis'. Other areas are the top deck and possibly amendments to the motor mount - although I think this area is pretty sound.

Maybe bulkhead updates to include a bearing style roll bar set up?

Any additional thoughts?

Good spot! Possibly linked up to the suspected new RF suspension blocks, like the xray?
