So rear JConcepts 22/B5 wheels work then? The 22-4 fronts are a tad cheaper as well

Anyone test this ? It seems like the sort of thing someone has looked into
I ran a 5.5 with 60k center all last year and motor was around 160 ish with 21t pinion

So, I've done lots of experimenting with the "slop", even though I'm still not sure it really matters. As far as the steering rack goes I've done lots of fiddling with the RCShox and Exotek units but by far the best setup I've found is the stock rack with the Exotek bushings (Part #1535) Very smooth and zero slop. Just sayin......

I wouldn't think so as the current kit works well in a multitude of conditions. There are some new parts coming out however to help with high grip tracks.
