Learning a new car...BD7 2016

I randomly skimmed this thread, but looking for more a quick recap on some items.

I thought I read that Xray c-hub work. Is that the case and are they a direct fit? Does anything else cross over?

Which are the actual stock arms...

Yokomo (YOKBD-008FG)
Yokomo Lightweight Graphite Front Suspension Arm Set $14.49

Yokomo (YOKBD-008FS)
Yokomo Front Suspension Arm (2) (Short) $10.49

Yokomo (YOKBD-008RG1)
Yokomo Lightweight Graphite Rear Suspension Arm (39.5mm) $14.49

Yokomo (YOKBD-008RS)
Yokomo Rear Suspension Arm (2) (Short)

Always been a fan, but don't know much about the car and picked up a 2016.

Thanks! Super noob to on road, I just can't wait to get it out there!, I got my car used and I noticed my front diff axles have a lot of play in them, should I just replace with new stock axles or get upgraded ones?.

nexxus,
i have no idea if xray c hubs fit. i doubt that seriously.
you want the 008rg1 arms....but the new car has new recipe material and description and they are interchangeable.
i dont asssssume you need any till windy opens,
i have some if that is not the case .
great car. get alum chassis.
it will turn so hard you will scare yourself.
also look at the set up sheets on petit rc... the wide ones especially.

Default Help with out corner enroll

Hi guys
My new BD7 2016 black series enrolls out of corner, my actual setup is the asphalt basic setup I found in petitrc but rear springs are silver and shock oil is 450.
I'm new in yokomo's world comming from a tamiya trf417. I'm impressed with the quality. Wow this car is a superb engineering works.
What do you think can be the problem?
Thanks!

Got my 16 Bd7 a few months ago and I've been super pleased with it on carpet and even a few asphalt races in between. Fully equipped ready to race with a 20Gram weight I am sitting at 1350 on the nose with my Protoform gen 2 maza 6 body (reinforced).

Only weight reduction would be alum rear shafts, Orca low pro battery. I run 17.5 (24k) and the yok carbon floating servo. My main question is regarding the alum chassis difference in weight. Does anyone know how much the alum chassis weighs in grams? If you have one loaded on your car I would love to know the weight ready to race.

I guess I am trying to figure out if I will be close to 1350-1360 with the alum chassis, and no additional brass weight. I have blitz tsx body that is 20 grams lighter that I can make up some difference on or get some titanium screws to help out with the alum chassis.

Thanks in advance
