Finished up my wiring today. I'm relatively happy with it.

I wouldn't get the lipo braces they weight quite a bit and that's a lot of weight hanging off the side of the chassis. It was the difference between 20 grams of balance weight or 40. I haven't noticed the need for them after not using them for a few weeks.

I had the original bd5 and it had a one way centre pulley, which is useless 95% of the time, so I sold it before it got used as I could not find a solid centre pulley anywhere at the time.

Is the bd7 the same? Hope not.

And why are people using graphite arms as opposed to stock arms?

Thanks,

Try putting a small thickness (0.05 mm for example) under the topdeck support.
I solved in this way

BD7 has a solid center pulley, rear gear diff and front spool. Nothing weird.

Even on medium grip carpet I felt the graphite arms gave the car a more direct feel. Only plastic now is the c-hubs.

People jumped on those spare parts at amain pretty fast! :-/

No kidding. I think it's still cheaper to order through futaba pro shop anyway and you receive your order in 3 days. I truly want to support a main, but they don't have anything I need.

Sometimes in high grip carpet blue front and pink rear is better, as it makes the car smoother
