Hi all I have a question: why do you get more rear traction with the rear shocks in front of the rear arms? I thought you would get more rear traction with extra weight behind the arms...
Any thought or ideas.
Cheers

Someone mentioned RW do them now. http://www.rccarshop.co.uk/index.php...-xray-xb4.html

I'm still running an associated spur (actually it's probably a kimbrough spur) for B4. You need to drill it out by about 1mm. If you dont have a drillpress, use a reamer and do it SLOWLY. you don't want to decentre it.

one thing about the cv pin pushing out is it shows us the joint is binding up with dirt.If it was secured with a set screw we probably wouldn't of known it was binding . i have the TSR boots on mine packed with grease and after 2 race days ive had no issues and the joints are clean on a dusty track.

I run the Durango boots on mine. Same results, clean and well greased.

nah... mine are never dirty. No dust on wet clay track and turf otherwise.

The TD boots are a good idea though.

Hoping Amain soon. The RR one came in for my backorder but I'm hoping that the RF comes in soon so I can order both at the same time. Have a couple days to wait and see.
