Now Im a little mad because I was told its a b44. how similer are they?
should I resell this one and get the b44 like I origionally wanted? what parts are interchangeable with the b44?
are the handling characteristics similar? I tried b44 springs but they didnt fit the shocks, and the bumpers are different and the undertray doesnt fit either.
how about the a arms?
thanks.
I think you'll be more than pleased with the performance of the BJ4WE. The B44 does have some updates, but on the whole it is quite similar. The BJ4 uses many AE parts, and the shocks/parts are interchangable. The BJ4 is able to use the Caster and Steering blocks (together only), the rear hub carriers, turnbuckles, and the rear arms (with some work to clear the tranny case) from the B44.

The AE arms also fit but you have to grind them just a little bit

I posted this on another Forum but I think this will help you in the long run if you decide to hang on to your BJ4-WE and want to avoid slop on the steering.

I would suggest its best you replace the stock Steering Rack (woven Carbon Fiber) and strongly recommend replacing it with the plastic B44 steering rack (Part # 9743). This is because the Woven Carbon Fiber rack wears out quicker and ends up having a larger diameter hole for the Block Carrier Bushings.... once the wear sets in you got instant slop. You may have to make some slight adjustment on your Drag Link to the servo but trust me its worth all the extra effort. Hope that helps!

I was just telling Jason Saturday - Goosebumps may be the best rc tire ever. I run them in all conditions......

I was at a big race this weekend and won some money to spend on JConcepts products. I want to get some tires for my B4 but the only question I have is about tire compounds. Can someone tell me which JConcepts compound would be closest to Losi Pink? Thanks!

ditto for this info request for me... I was under the assumption that JConcept only had one compound, "green." All I see are "green" compounds at hobby shops. I was wondering what the need for color-coding compounds if there were only one

Are the 1/10th buggy (2wd and 4wd) and truck (2wd) tires made out of different compounds? If so, can you explain what they are and a short description?

SirSpeedy - Have you tried Goosebumps in tightly packed clay with high grip? I wouldn't mind a do-it-all tire that is good on high grip to slightly loose (when the high grip track breaks up)... I've been using DoubleDees and so far, pretty good...

Check this out: http://www.jconcepts.net/files/JConcepts_Tire_Guide.pdf

I don't know if that helps much. Jason and Andy will be out of town for the worlds this week but when they get back I'm sure they will have a better answer for you. Or PW can shine a little more light

Thanks rcdude, that explains it quite well... Although I haven't seen the Double Dee's made in other compounds other then greens for the 1/10th buggy size... I really wouldn't mind trying something like an orange compound since I didn't really like the M3 from Proline. I'm more of a fan of something slightly stiffer like the R3 from Proline.
