Thanks for posting, I don't see any reason why it would not be just as good as any. I actually own a DEX 210 with a front drive conversion that uses all 3D printed arms and stuff. The quality is pretty good but then again everything gets a chance to be proven during racing conditions. Really can't wait to try out those arms tho.

I've got my buggy torn down for a long overdue rebuild and am throwing some(more) upgrades at it mainly in lighter weight driveline parts. Ive already got a 3gear,slipper eliminator topshaft,etc. my question is since ive already got my trans opened do I want to change out my idler shaft/ is there and actual performance gain in doing it or is it just some grams off overall weight

Will the s2 worlds body fit with the 3 and 4 gear lcg transmission using the fan mount battery strap? That seems like a sweet set up! I have the r1 wurks 15mm thick fan and I know the finnisher body will work but I'd way rather have the s2 worlds. Please help, thanks.

Got my YZ-2 Transmission conversion done. This car has so much steering now it's hard to believe, but my lap times are close to my b44.3...of course I'm really bad at driving the 4wd buggy

total parts cost with shipping was $55. There are other mods that work with this too. If you use the Yokomo Shock Tower you can mount the shock on the rear and increase the wheelbase too

Thanks for the response.. The only other one Ive heard of the durability factor being good is the TLR And after the horror stories of the original 22, I'm not to interested investing in the new version of the 22.

Just got a used b5m.

Got both b5 and b5m rear arms with the car.

What is the difference between them?
