If I didn't prefer the HV savox servos I would definitely consider that shorty one so I could place the battery even more forward.

I've always been a big fan of kyosho springs, thought I'd try and find a good spring combination and I settled on the buggy soft/white for front and rear. Have been very happy with them, with the shorty pack now though the front and rear have almost perfect balance spring wise.

All that with a tresrey steering plate, lunsford ballstuds, turnbuckles and cups, TD gear diff with kyosho 5k diff oil, absolutely loving this car couldn't be happier.
I bet you'll like it even more with an 8mm extended chasis

When I had my B4.1 I had both bodies for the +8mm chassis (ahem Durango....), and it was the finnisher that was not as extreme. But either body will give you more steering.

Threw in B-Fasts diff kit here, no problems whatsoever ever since the change. It's practically a must.

in what situation would you benefit from a longer chassis ? and why +8mm and not a other figure.

what are the benefits of a longer chassis

Stability on bumpier tracks. Once this happens this car will be unbeatable.

Oh, and downsides? Im not gonna swap all my stuff on a longer chassis when I race a bumpy track and put it all back to the original chassis when racing on a smoother track.

there should me a nice chassis in the middle, or are there no downsides on a longer chassis

Happy mendium for this car I would think would be 5-6mm range. We will have to see I know Jorn was running a +8 at Cactus. The Kyosho guys are also debating on which length to run. Tebo was running +11 but most privateers hated the car being that long. Maybe 5.5mm

I almost think that because these drivers drive sooo many classes. They try to get each car to handle similarly. And extending the chassis of a buggy will help get you there.

The B4 is at +8mm and seems to work everywhere. Settle on one size and adjust set-ups accordingly. It would be a PITA to switch back and forth for different tracks.

There was someone on here making a longer aluminum chassis. Not sure what happened to that project.

I'm also guessing, but in a few months TD should be releasing two brand new cars, and there might be something for the 210 released then as well.

That is quite long isnt it? How much difference (if you know) was there between the short B4 and short RB5 chassis? Apparently anything over 10mm was not working well at West Coast, too sluggish.
