Lots more BD7 spares showed up on AMain's site yesterday. Since they do all their product pictures in house, it probably takes a while to get that many new part numbers online.

THX!

The t-shox are great!

But first i didnīt get the right setup for the dampers! So my first impression was, that the car feels better with the standard shocks...

But now iīve drilled the original pistons up to 1,2mm x 3 and filled the shock with 500# oil... With the short and hard rebound springs the work great!

Now iīm testing with the new t-springs... the feel softer and different to the standard yokomo ones... But i think it will work... I can give a feedback in about a week! ;-)

He would dominate in anything just like anyone else at that level.

How does he do in 1/12? Or nitro sedan?

Ronald is what happens when one of the best drivers is matched up with the right car for his style. It doesn't hurt that Yokomo always sends Umino around to help him.

He would be fast with all the cars, but the racing would be more competitive than it is now.

from watching videos. Volker on carpet his car always Rotates hard and the car rolls side to side more then any of the other cars on the track. He also gets on the gas sooner or the car just lays down the power that good out of the corners! If you watch Alex H in the xray on the same track the car does not roll on the front end as hard going in as volkers car and the whole car really looks stiff and flat. Im impressed with how he gets the car to rotate and put power down so well. Its more then just the driver in the videos that im watching the car simply looks that good. I have not watch any vids of him on the BLACK stuff tho.

The car rolls more than any other I've ever seen. I think part of that might have to do with how tall the top deck and other components are. It seems to be about 4mm higher than an XRay. And I agree, other cars stay much flatter. This is a much different approach. It seems to be working.

The Yok has been very fast on asphalt, but the team has had bad luck. Tamiya has the right car for that surface, and the team to go with it.

not really great. i have them on my durango. actually stripped a few cause some hex heads are slighlty smaller so had to apply pressure with my hex driver and by time i do and start tightening... stripped! i had to use mugen or kyosho brand(great quality) to replace 14 screws that got messed up.

Well spent all day at the track playing around trying different setups and changes. After all said and done I ended back up at the stock Umino setup. I pulled off the aluminum and didn't break one thing. I did hit the board too. Car is a lot better with the proper BD7 c-hub on it.

On a secondary note as I didn't play with it today but has anyone played with different droop settings? It seems like this car really responds to droop more to help cornering.
