I may have misunderstood, so wanted to ask if I can use the crate of tires/rims I have for my tlr 22 2.0 or do I need to stock up on new rims/tires.

People want clamping hexes because they are pretty. Oh and the fear that the axle screw might come out. The rear will fit fine, I switched from 22 to b5 and use my rear just fine. But, it is a no go on the fronts. I think the offset is so far off that you can not even shim it out.

You better get 1 while they say stock is limited because they will sellout fast.

Lol! The 4th gear (second idler) is there so the car will go "forward" with the motor and gear box mounted essentially "backwards", as opposed to a rear motor car.

"not into debating which is to drive Ryeau
My reason for such a statement
#1 4w requires far more throttle control because you can't just lift power & glide flat on landings. Lift power all the way & expect a big nose dive with 4w. Driver needs to hold more on power throttle in the corner as well.

#2
2w has far better suspension & can land harder with no slap.

4w has to be landed on every down hill ramp off the jumps and has to be driven smoother.

A wheeler is a must have tool in any pit"

4wd is just different. Any wheel time is good but running a 2wd buggy is the hardest class to run consistently and takes the most finess. If u can drive a 2wd buggy good u can drive anything

As for the 3 vs4 gear tranny. It changes the rotation direction. If U ran a three gear tranny in mm when you jump throttle and braking would have the opposite effect that it does on rm.

You just reverse the motor rotation. Durango has the 3 gear option.

Whether a car is 2wd or 4wd has exactly zilch to do with if the chassis slaps on landings or not.

Default Aluminum arm mounts

Guys

Installing the aluminum arm mounts and was wondering if the little lock washers are needed since the screws will be threaded into the aluminum with loctite?
Thanks! Jason

My esc is not that small, does anyone know the dimensions of the space provided for the electronics. I will be using my saddle packs so my space will be really limited.

Thanks.
