Not a problem, I'll check on the other thing you asked about tomorrow and get back to you.

Stealth_RT, you should be able to get many weekends out of the tires then.

I just put the Rulux spoked wheels on the front and rear of my BJ4 (non-worlds). Unfortunately, I am getting a lot of rubbing in the front and my wheels are not spinning properly. How can I move the wheels out so that they dont rub?

Remove the front BJ4 hexes and put the B44 front hexes on.

Ya those are B44 front wheels not BJ4 front wheels. I just put the whole B44 CVA kit in my BJ4WE along with the B44 front arms and now I can run both wheels. It takes some very precise Dremel work for the a arms, but worth it.

Wow today went poorly. It was my first race day with my non-worlds BJ4 and I broke before qualifiers. First I took out an arm and then I broke a steering knuckle. Unfortunately, I didnt have any with me and the shop didnt have any so I had to watch. I tried to use the B44 front C Hub and steering knuckle but I couldnt get the silver BJ4 CVD/driveshaft to fit properly. I read that they were backwards compatible but it didnt seem to work for me.

Anyone have a good starting point setup for the non-worlds BJ4 on a hard packed clay surface? I am running double D's all around with a 10.5.

Chirag,

Hey, its MOMO from BigDads, the guy looking at your TC5.

I have a BJ4WE with a pretty good setup. are you running Friday? Greg, (RCBlue) has a BJ4 and is very knowledgable with setups, so is Max. I'll have to see what my schedule looks like, but I might pop down to Amain on Friday.

You can get a MaxAmps 4400 or 6000 saddle pack for it. If you are going to use lipo's you will need batteries built in a saddle pack arrangement.

Yes, three by three. Looking down at the car from the rear, towards the front. Put the black battery wire on the left front, outside. A six inch piece of wire from the inside right rear of the left pack. To the inside left rear of the right pack. And the red battery wire on the right front, outside.

Kyosho_101...

Mate I'm after some JConcept wheels and tires for 10th scale 4wd. Can't seem to find them local. If you can help me out could you send me a PM. Would rather work out a deal in Aust than order off the net.

Thanks mate.
