The carpet setups all seem to prefer the 4,2 front and rear. I have not tried this with my BD7 as I haven't run it on carpet yet. I run F4.2 front and FR3.5 which gives 0.5 sweep out on asphelt.

BTW,

Sounds like the T Shox are alright. I have read glowing reports O/S on these.

Later,

Calvin.

Default belt teeth count

What is the teeth count on the belts? Does anyone know of compatible belts from other cars? The yokomo belts are fine, just wondering if, in a pinch, I can use xray or another brand of belts I might be able to get quicker.

I'm heading out for my first test tomorrow with my car, built it yesterday and tonight. So far, i can tell you that the box stock shocks are, well, crap. The shaft wobbles too much to my liking, nothing compared to my TRF ones, the shaft guide is solid and straight.

Over all, the rest of the car is great, quality is awesome on everything, went together so smoothly.

I will be on carpet, with rubber tires, with a weight of 1400g. Setup i intend to try is Box stock and then Uminos setup - but i have graphite arms. I have the LTCR body and a mazdaspeed body to test with to see the difference as well.

X ray rear belts will work.

Just sharing a tip... I used the servo mount left over after installing the floating mount to use as a battery stopper. I used a flat head screw snd countersunk washers to adjust the gap as well as the secondary stopper near the motor mount. This is the same peice tamiya uses as battery stoppers front to back.

Ditto on the shitty shocks. Tamiya users are spoiled.

if you run 2 oring, there will be no more freeplay from the shock shaft.

running 2 oring will make the car more stable...

where would the other o-ring go, inside the shock body?, or are you just doubling up the o-ring per manual build instructions

Default Shocks

2 O-Rings, Ti shafts and they are as good if not better than the TRF shocks in my opinion.

I have a BD7 for sale complete with t-shox, €400! I will stick it in for sale thread over the weekend with pictures. Only ran on carpet.

I think you use 2 o-rings where you currently have 1 and use this thin collar.

Associated TC5 / TC6 belts should work

I must be missing something here......my BD7 shocks are money. I built them box stock and felt that they were just as good or better than the Tamiya shocks....maybe I did something wrong

Once put together, they really feel nice and smooth, but i know that they are not as smooth as they can be.

Ordered the following parts
These blue O-Rings: YOK-YS-7HG
http://www.fast-webshop.com/yokomo-b...h-Grade-O-Ring

with this thin collar:
YOK-BD-S2W
http://www.fast-webshop.com/yokomo-b...ng-Coller-Thin

And these ys-8hd Bladders
http://www.fast-webshop.com/yokomo-b...yper-Diaphragm


If they are still not as good as i like, i'm going to order t-shoxs or TRF dampers...

I've fitted some TRF shocks, and the car feels stiffer, no idea why?

I'll be trying them back to back with the kit shocks on Sunday. Ronald uses the Yok shocks though so I'm sure they aren't a problem.

anyone has an extra set of these that they are willing to sell?. it's sold out at Amain. I'm willing to pay a little more than retail plus shipping. Thanks in advance.
