slipper adjustment? I went by the manual, 13.7 to 14MM. What exactly am I looking for on the track with using this as an adjustment tool. Sorry if dumb question, I am new to 4wd buggy

Adjust slipper as needed for available traction on the surface you are running on. Lots of wheel spin due to lack of traction -run looser. If traction is good, can leave be or run tighter.

The slipper is also there to help you not destroy the F/R diff's, so you most likely wouldn't want to run it so tight that there is no slipper action at all.

I see people running a tighter ball diff on front then the back and vice verse. What are they achieving by doing this?

Hi guys ... I need to put in an order to AMain and looking to get some wheels. Any recommendations? I know the ZX5 used different wheels. I have wheels from my B44.1 but not sure if they're going to fix the ZX6.
Thanks

How competitive do you think this platform is vs. others? Just bought it, but no runs yet. I noticed it didn't do well at nationals.

The zx6 is awesome. I wouldn't pay too much attention to nationals with regards to car selection. If you paid attention to all the big races you would own all the different brands from month to month. Each one has strengths and weaknesses. I drove mine a handful of times and put it down because I didn't need to mess with it much to be fast. Definitely and upgrade over the zx5 in every way.

Far more competitive at your local track than the winning car of that race.

In reality, could have had a complete hand-out/spec car, and the results would have likely been the same.

If your b44.1 had 12mm hex wheels then you can use them....

So does the B44 have 12mm front hexs? Looking on Amain and they don't mention what size hexs is on there wheels. Just what car they fit.
