Alrighty, got another question. What size/dimensions do I look for when ordering wheels for my BD7? I don't want just the solid white wheel as my only option. The manual doesn't mention it.

I know it needs to be for a 12mm hex hub. But what are the 5.0, 3.5s? Are those for offsets? Can I use a wider wheel to help fit some of the 200mm bodies?

Thought I'd give an update on my BD7.... HOLY MOLY!!! This thing Sca...Reams. Can you say zoom zoom! . Just what I was looking for in speed, too fast for normal racing but perfect for bashing around a parking lot. Very satisfying. If you could hear me I'd be grunting like Tim Allen. Roads are a bit to salty to really stretch its legs but still tons of fun.

To fill a 200mm body you'll probably need a +3, +5mm offset depending the look you want. Most 1/10 road cars are 12mm hex I think.

Has anyone had issues with the belt tensioner cams shifting on the car after hitting the wall? One decent hit and the cam turns and the belt is loose.

4-3 x 3mm set screws go in the inner camber link holes.
these stop the cams from turning.

No bumps on top of eccentrics like on BD7 to stop them from spinning.

I guess there was a blurb about it in the kit..... but not the upgrade kit!

Anyway just dab some locktite on and put them in just to tension the eccentrics.

I just realized this was the BD7 thread.
The setscrews are for the BD8 eccentrics.

If your BD7 eccentrics are spinning then you need to check if the spring & ball
are still in the cup of the bulkheads.

I was just talking about this yesterday with a racer who asked me about the grub screws for the eccentrics and I am like Huh? I never seen this in the manual. But he had a BD8. I look at the those threaded hole as the inner link mounts options.


If your eccentrics are spinning then you would see it in a different position after your run say on one side vs the other correct? Or both sides moved to different position?

Yes, they are link mounts. But since the eccentrics are different in the BD8, no bumps on top of the eccentrics, set screws are needed.
I know it was not in the conversion manual.

Yes, different positions both sides , F & R.

Anyway, no issues since.

I am getting one side rotating only. I will check to see if the cam spring is still in the bulkhead. Thanks for the information guys.

Hello! I glued my tensioner balls into the bulkhead. Never had an issue since. I also glued a little on top also. This have worked fine for me, but be careful so you dont get any glue anywere else! Cheers// www.andrefossto.wordpress.com

1st place in the Bayside RC Presidents Shield race in 21.5t.
Not too bad for a BD7'15. Still some life left in them yet
