My BD7 is on its way....... AWESOME!

Not really, they are pretty much the same car.

Just build my BD7 , its a pleasure to build.
I not gonna compare Yokomo with other brands.

Very nice designed car , nice way of thinkin by the development.
Now waiting to go to some tracks , and check out the handling and durability.

I do have a question for experienced driver.
I run 48 pitch spurs , but now it seems that al my spurs are too wide and it runs on my topdeck.
Its possible to make these smaller and make it fits.

Question , are Panaracer spurs the only spurs that fits on the BD7 ?
Or are there also other brands ?
Or racers who modified the spurs to makes it fit.

But ... damn i it was a pleasure to build this car.

Grtz , Kevin

+1 on this statement.

So after playing around with my TCXX and getting car fairly dialed I am now waiting to get some goodies from A-Main and plan on spending two weeks on the car with setup.

I have a few new things I want to test. I will keep you guys updated. Assuming I get the parts soon. I truly feel there is a way to make this one of the best cars on carpet in our hands.

I have read some issue's about the cvd pins ?
Are they coming out when u drive ?
I had the same problem with my old car , and when they came out they damaged the uprights.

Then i have tried the T.O.P. cdv pins. Anti-Slip Universal Pin
Product no.PO-DT0011
