DUDE !!! Is that the Castle 3800kv 4 Pole motor ?!

YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST REPORT CONTINUALLY ON PERFORMANCE AND ENDURANCE !!! Also, let us know how the spur gear holds up. Those motors are bonkers ! Power like a ticked off cave man !

Thanks !

So the new B44.3 that was just announced will also have a center diff. I wonder how the spur will hold up there.

time will tell on their spur. I am surprised on the center diff. I figured f/r gear diffs. I never even knew they ran a center diff at any races.

If it was delayed a couple more days you could have bought an Associated B413 instead! <cough> Oops, I meant B44.3!

Yeah, that crazy combo. It was bonkers in my 2WD SCT, I figure it'll be a bit less crazy in this thing. Hoping the spur holds up!

AlderBoy I think you're right, I'll need to trim that bundle up to get the body on.

Friday it hits the track!

It's probably a big deal that nobody will realize the importance of - a center gear diff. I run the 22-4 but moved from the 44.2FT platform because A) the slipper SUCKS and B) the ball diff died so darn quick. Can't wait to see how the car does...

Tower must have got a few in this morning, because when I checked it showed in stock. Quickly ordered one, refreshed the listing page and was now out of stock. Next day shipping, will be here tomorrow. Put a bunch of parts on back order, in case they come in before my LHS gets them.

With a stash of spur gears in hand, and several sets of Xgear springs on the way I am looking forward to changing over from the "fast but relatively fragile" DEX410v4 to the D413.

Can't find any spur gears in stock anywhere on the planet

I have spur gears 2 on backorder with Tower.

If anyone is sitting on a stack of them, I'd be happy to buy one from you, pay for shipping, plus when I receive mine from Tower, I'll mail one back to you for free to replace the one you sold me.

Pm me if you can help a brother out
