The upper deck obviously inspired by A800 which is a great car also.

Seems that this new car has to be used with LCG batteries or shorties...

Anyone knows when is the release date?
Saw from the Japan's model shop web, some said it is coming.
I remember the 16 was released last October

i am still having my 15. how many of you will switch from 16 to 17?
car wise, many people praised the x ray. i don't know how good is the 17?
for the 16, it was not really that good compared with the 15

I plan on getting one. I've actually had some good results with the 16. It can be a handful at times and I'm still looking for the sweet spot. I guess I'm just a Yokomo fan.

It's a tough one I think.

I love Yokomo's and I don't want the pits to be Xray-dominated.

But the BD7 16 is/was a bit of a pig and every time I drive a T4 I'm amazed by how nice it feels in comparison.

I hope the BD8 fixes some of the BD7s issues, but I can unfortunately see myself drifting over to the orange side.

i will definitely think about the bd-8, but i will probably buy the first batch. i want to observe more.
as for the 16, i have seen many people to sell the 16 and buy back the 15.

i don't want this happen with the 8 again, i will wait

2016 BD7 is a good car but lap time wise it's slow. It's will be a good MOD car but man on 17.5 geezz car is just off the phase compared to my 2014 - 2015 BD7..

can't agree more. this is why i will sit back a bit, wait and see.

someone even said if ronald was with the other brand esc, the 8 would shine more. maybe not chasing bruno so desperately.

I got the 2016 BD7 dialed in but car is not consistent thru out the entire race lap time wise. Those short shocks is no Bueno on asphalt track. I'm going to try running the regular shocks this weekend.
