16 body fits nicely on a 15 if interested. Design pretty much feels like the yokomo bmax 4/3

Is anyone running the +0.75 12mm hexs on all 4 hubs, i read on page 1 22-4 wheels work i just want to be sure before i order $200 on wheels and tires. And hows the 2mm steering plate brace compared to the stock plate that connects the steering to the bulkhead?

Get all the + hex's in 12mm. I don't think you'll need 2 sets of each, but at least 1 of each. They're cheap and easy to test.

I have it and love it. adds more flex and i feel like it gives a better steering feel which could be in my head but the fadd flex is forsure noticeable

I've also got low profile wheel nuts for the front but I think your standard may be ok as well if serrated. I ordered some non OEM low profile nuts and they were still too big!

I usually soak my metal gear diff parts in naphtha to clean them, any reason to not do this with the composite gears?

Can the steel diff gears gears be used with the composite cross pins?

yes, why wouldn't they work? I'm using them now though I did buy the hardened alum just because. its a good tuning option to be able to mix and match different diff parts.

17.5T in 4wd is common in Australia... At my track it's maybe 2sec slower than mod class on a medium technical track
