So I was looking through the tools and since most people share the difficulties in accessing the motor Screws, I wondered what "tool" is receommended. Someone told me they make a wrench that makes it easier to get at the motor screws.

Maybe a ball end hex driver ?

The jconcepts tools are pretty dialed. The bigger metric ones are ball end and work great for tight angled spaces.

Ball ends are handy but for motor screws it's best to use them for setting the mesh and then use a good ol' L-shaped hex wrench to snug them down. The ball head has much smaller contact with the screw and can strip the heads easily. If you're talking about 2wd vehicles then it's easiest to remove the right rear tire so its not in the way.

I think they are talking about the BJ4 WE/ B44.

Normally what I do is remove the battery holder and the posts, then pop a ball cup off in the rear, and you can fit a normal hex wreanch in without a problem. (it might seem like a lot of work, but it is worth it as it is really simple to get to the motor then.

Will the JConcepts high down force B44 body and undertray fit on the non-worlds BJ4?

Normally i use the L shaped hex, but I never seem to get a solid fit. Also, I run Lipo and I have extended battery posts. The angle is just awkward enough to get a long handle wrench from the end.



Chirag,
I would think it should fit. Amain should have the body for your BJ4. I need to look at something different I got my motor too hot and need to cool my motor and ESC better.

The best way to tighten the motor screws on the bj4 we and the b44 is to use an angled hex wrench. But you will probably have to cut a little off it. This is what I did. Pretty much I cut about 3/16th of an inch off the short end and it fits between the battery posts and the motor.

The only issue I have found using the Rulux on the rear of a Losi is that the recess of the wheel doesn't quite reach the shoulder on the Losi axle. This means that if you tighten the wheel on fully the wheel will be able to flop around a bit. Just put a very thin washer under the ny-lock wheel nut when installing the wheels.

Also about the handling difference--maybe its an issue of wheel stiffness? It might be that the Rulux are silghtly stiffer which can affect the handling? Anybody?

The 08 Clash will be December 12-14 at the Coral Springs track here in Florida. We are working on updating the website and finalizing race details at the moment.

Great job JC on putting together some good tires for us to use.
Good job, we appreciate your support!

I know the body fits, but there is space between the rear of the chassis and the body due to the difference in battery layout. I cant speak to the fitment of the undertray, but I imagine it would fit the same, again with some extra space in the rear.

It may be a week or two before they are back on our website. Perhaps a web retailer has them in stock currently? amain/tower?
