Looking at the steering knuckle picture from the magazine article on the last page, it is hard to tell for sure. But, yeah, it looks like it.

Also somewhat interesting are the 6.5* caster blocks... Im not sure if the standard, "out-of-the-box" setup for the BD7 calls for anti-dive... but, if not, that seems to be a lot of caster.

They said the price will be much lower than the BD5. Hope this is true otherwise I would still have to run my BD5.

Looks like they are taking the HPI route to drop prices, looks like the Ti turnbuckles are gone.
Steel rear driveshafts.
Was thinking the new shock caps would have been added too.

Good to see the split blocks, and the option for top links also.

Seems like it. Even when the price is dropped, option parts for it will still make a hole in your pocket. Good thing that some parts are still interchangeable.
