He he......he wasn't supposed to test it tonight but since most of his prewired electronics from the B44.1 was a direct fit he couldn't resist and slapped on some almost worn out wheels from a DEX410 and went out for a few gentle laps......not doing the double-double in front of the stand and being very cautious......but being too cautious always leads to mistakes

Well......at least now it's broken in

I wont be able to take mine out for some laps until Thursday so plenty of time to get the electronics in and slap on some paint

Build has gone as smooth as expected......everything fits first try with no slop......drivetrain is butter smooth with almost zero drag.....diffs are ridiculously lightweight with all composite gears and cross pins.......shocks go together with no issues at all and are super easy to setup with zero rebound.

Car is well thought out with plenty of room for electronics and diff removal is a breeze with just 4 screws.......2 from the front and 2 through the bottom plate

Everything is 2mm hex with the exception of a few set screws that uses 1.5mm.

Front A-arms, knuckles, rear uprights, front and rear inner hinge pins, front and rear sway bars are interchangeable +++ and pins for driveshafts F + C + R and hexes are all the same size.......meaning less parts needed for spares

You can tell they have taken their time designing this buggy

For those of you who are lucky to have a kit already, could you please take a minute or two and try to fit the largest pinion you can and report back to us?

Many thanks!

DEX410 wheels from Durango or DE Racing fit.

Fronts are a direct fit and the rears you have to ream out the center hole just a tad.
Offsets are the same.

Hey BentKa where is your club track located mate? indoor racing looks cool.

I will be touring Europe from March next year, misses is working back in Cologne. I just want to add your track to my visit list. Not into visiting museums, history, old buildings etc I壇 rather try out all the EP off-road & on road RC tacks I can find to meet simular minded people (nerds). I got Norway visit on my list, I値l pop in for a club meet, ya daughter will probably beat me anyway, if she beats me I値l give her a little toy stuffed Kangaroo as a trophy (I知 from Australia). If it's a private track please PM me.

Hey 'doorz' with the end of the world supposedly happening on the 2oth Dec, you should beg the distributor to get the kits in a day earlier, at least get a few laps in, just in case.

Kev
