Thanks for the info. If you ever find yourself around an associated b4 pin rim, would love to hear if it works

Thanks for the offer. I am still in debate mode though here but I am a 4wd guy by heart, and this vehicle intrigues me. It looks highly durable, and past experience with hot bodies I was quite pleased.

That's great to hear. Thanks for taking the time to answer questions. I forgot, maybe a floating servo mount option?

Floating servo mount is a brilliant idea!

I think the up amd coming Bmax4 III is only buggy incorporated with it

probably not. I don't see how it would benefit an off-road buggy.

What is a floating servo mount? Only anchors to chassis on one side? If that is the case, why would you want one? I lock that sucker down!

All touring cars have one. It helps a bit with chassis flex. Yokomo started it in tc and is now gonna be in their 4wd buggy

touring cars have different requirements than buggies. Just because another company does one thing doesn't mean I'm gonna blindly follow suit. It'd have to be proven that it in fact produces a performance advantage before I add any of those features.

from a reliability standpoint those things look sketchy.

Yeah plus tc doesn't jump and what not. There's a lot more to these things that only you would understand. If that's how it is that just means this buggy needs no upgrades!

Torrance, since you are on here I have a question. Do you feel you gave up performance to gain durability? Obviously you felt the trade off was worth it but I was just curious if you would have designed things a little differently if the current crop of cars didn't have a problem finishing races.

Sure didnt look like they gave up any performance at the Worlds. Cars was getting around track pretty damn well.

I don't want to use belts anymore so I am waiting to get the D413. 3 oil filled diffs, tuning for everything, Shorty pack capable, etc.
I run an original B44 so durability is really what I'm looking for. I think the D413 will have slightly more of it but the TLR would have better part support at my LHS. The debate rages on.

My poor B44.2. It is so done once this gets released. I loved my HB VE8 and this looks like it took some of those greats aspects and now 1/10th. Oh yeah.
