Anyone have a good starting setup for a bd7 16 running mod on a smallish carpet track? Thanks

Hello.

Is anybody able to tell me if just the bottom chassis is interchangeable between the 14 and 16 bd7?

Thanks

i don't think so. I have both and motor mount holes don't line up. Bulkheads, servo and center weights, suspension mounts and bumper do though

same towers, keep in mind the internal ratio of the bd8 is 1.7 vs the bd7 2.0, belts from conversion may not work...The difference would be the center pulley.

Shouldn't that be 2.7 and 7.2? All I can find in my charts is a 42.7, no 42.8...

But yes, that would give you 3.1 degrees, and yes about 0.7mm wider than standard.

Thanks. Its on a setup sheet that im trying, so could be that it should be 2.7. Is there a complete suspension block chart anywhere?
