Physically yes but I'm sceptical about the belt fitment

Getting into on-road and I picked up a couple BD7s, I am sure this question has been asked before, but what FDR am I looking to run on black carpet, 17.5 TC.

Thanks!

Has anyone had issues with the rear hubs breaking on the 2016 car? I have been consistently breaking them.

Yes I constantly crack the hex adapters near the screw hole... but they seem to stay safely in place even if cracked... so I don't really care much

Broke a C-Hub once or twice, but never a rear hub

I remember a few of the UK guys breaking the graphite rear hubs on the BD7.

Give the softer plastic ones a try instead, I think they're less brittle.

Hi All,

I'm looking for the O-ring that is used for the Yokomo BD7/8 adjustable body mounts, mines cracked. Can anyone help me with a part number for these?

Thank you.

Check out the setup sheet. Would love some feedback.
try remove shims under outer front camber link. if still feel pushy add some shims under inner front camber link
