Hi,

Does the Aluminum Servo Mount Bracket (2445-1) fit the B6 buggy?



Thanks,

MiCk B. :-)

Sorry to drop in on this thread, but I need to purchase 3 original BJ4 bodies. By original, I mean, pre-order-days-original body. I think I was #873 and #874 and #935 from the original preorder list. I was hoping you might have some lying around in the attic or something.

Can anyone here help with that? Or recommend a current body that will fit properly?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
Pete

I think it will move the servo further forward compared to the standard B6/d mounts. Maybe Paul can confirm.

Default Need some tire Help

So I remember when the evo/60 series tires came out for 1/10 there was some speculation and possibly remember seeing how to's on mounting standard 2.2 tires to evo style beads. Is this possible? Do I just cut the bead off and glue as normal.
Any helps appreciated

Question about tire compounds...
During the winter at the indoor tracks around here the tracks stay moist and we're all on clay compound.
During the summer with the heat and the fans on and the doors open it's a different story. Soft, super soft, mega soft.
Should I actually measure track temperature and make my selection by that? Wouldn't a super soft give me a bit more traction than a soft or does it not work that way? I've actually had good luck with mega's and closed cell inserts but according to the temperature chart I'm way off.

I doubt you will see any JC bodies for any Xray car.

Gotcha, thanks for pulling that thread. Thankfully the rest of my cars are common enough for JC product. Thanks for the reply.

No Finnisher planned for the MBX-7, but we will do a new body for the rumored MBX8 if/when its released
Any plans for a Finisher body for the B6?

Actually we decided to make an S2 and should have something end of the month or first of Sept.

It does fit, but moves the servo forward and can cause clearance issues with the steering.

I love the Finnisher body for the B5M .... will JConcepts make one for the B6?
Yes, we will do a F2 body soon .

Yes, you can just cut the bead off the 2.2 tire and mount to the 2.4/60mm wheel.

I just go by what works best regardless of temps . Sounds like you are on the right track with your compound selections

question on carpet racing when you are not allowed to use carpet style pin tires:

At the track i'll be running at in the winter previously I used clay compound tires in either a very minimum tread setup (say a barcode sized tread) or slicks basically sauced. They worked well, but one of the very fast drivers uses a wedge 2wd tire up front and I believe something like a red compound losi ifmar pin. As they are not a "hard" carpet tires, those are legal and he doesnt' sauce which is kind of nice.

Carpet is grey ozite mixed with something else, not sure what though as can be seen here:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


For 2wd buggy, ,I am looking to use the one of the various 2wd front tires for carpet out there, but curious how does the jconcepts swagger compare to the schumacher wedge in yellow compound and do you run these without foams?

Also, would flip outs be an option for the rear that could be similar to the losi IFMAR pin I described?

Lastly, I wonder if a similar front and rear flip out setup on 4wd buggy would be an option too based on what i mentioned (right now using worn proline ions)

IMO, the Swaggers are more consistent through the corner, and have more grip than the Schumachers or Proline Wedges. I've run all 3. Before the Swaggers the Schumachers were my favorite...Before...

Yes run them without Foams
