advice on yokomo bd7 range

Postby Scott_83 » 23 Nov 2015, 23:21

I'm getting back into racing and I quite like the bd7.

Please can anyone please who has one give me some advice on what there like? Ease to set up? Mods needed to make it handle better? Springs and shock set up? Graphite and alloy parts?

Cheers

Hi Scott,

Kit setup is very good round our Aldershot track. Depending on your electrics and batteries then you may want to use titanium turnbuckles & screws to get the weight down to closer to 1350g but you can do that later. We usually fit the floating servo arm

That's great advice thankyou . Why do people fit solid front diff? And the double joint driveshaft? What difference do they do to the handling

Cheers

im hoping the new car will be as good as the xray as im changing brand,the reason for the solid front axle is to give better front end feel ,it also give more on power steering,its very rare to see a diff in the front and even then its got such thick oil its not far off a solid axle,the dcj's are to stop the wheel chatter at full lock steering

The new car looks good but then to me at the moment they all look the same.

Well I've got a 2015 bd7 coming with spool and double joint shafts. Can't wait to get it
