Had fun with it today, flame56mx's setup was easy to drive and went where you told it to.
What shock oils did you have in it flame56mx? I want to copy this setup to a sheet and play with it from here. Will probably end up back at your setup, handled really well

We have been flipping back and forth from RM3, to MM4 and now MM3 in blinky. So far MM4 is the safest feeling and easiest drive at our track, but nut not the quickest laps..Finding the balance is the key, and a few of the things we're trying now are a little off the page "so to speak"...

Don't suppose anyone could measure of a set of the DEX210 rear hubs?

I'm trying to figure out if I can use the DEX210 CVD and hub on my X6 Cubed so move to the big inner bearing with captured CVD pin.

Wondering if there is a geometry difference and if the driveshaft would be the right length.

The B4 and 210 arms are the same length pin to pin and the Durango and AE cvd ends are both the same size on the outdrive side so I don't see why it wouldn't work. You could use the 210 front arms and/or steering hubs too.

I'm already using the DEX210 front arms actually after reading that from you earlier.

It actually narrowed the front end slightly though. Had some wicked +camber after I did the swap.

Converted to 3mm hinge pins and the inside and caster block and have an essentially zero slop front end.

I use the stock aluminum b4.2 ones. I just sand down the back lip on hex til its flat and it works perfectly. If you leave the lip on when you tighten the wheel it binds the bearing but when you sand down that back lip its perfect. You can tighten as much as you want with no binding.

I belive they are included with a new gearbox set, haven't seen them available separately. Sadly this is one of the major drawbacks of the kit, sometimes you have to buy a lot of plastic to get the part you really want.
