What ball cups does everyone use with their titanium turnbuckles. Kit ones?

he said is esc was not very small. The tekin is probably smallest receiver, and you barely got it to fit. Anyway, some people are putting the receivers on the sides. You just have to play with it

A 4W's extra weight & lower ride height ?

Go figure ...

Must have something do with it slapping on landings easier then
the 2w.

My 4wd weighs less than my old 2.0 mod class buggy. If you're slapping, the tuning is off...shouldn't matter whether 2 or 4. Different vehicle, different tuning. 2wd will always be harder to drive and better to learn on.

in regards to 4wd chassis slap, its part tuning and part throttle happy drivers.

Anyways, back on topic. Can't wait for the offset shoulder bushings to come in..

I saw Maiflied and Rivkin slapping. You jump long enough and flat land, you can slap a MM no problem. Saw RM's do the same jump and land dead silent. I would think the RM would slap more with all of that weight over 2 shocks.

Depends on the car and the shock package.

B44s are slap monsters, but they run 20-22mm ride height. They used to make even more racket when people ran lexan chassis protectors.

Regarding 2WD slap, MM will generally slap more because you're using a shock package with softer dampening to aid in weight transfer.

For those running mod, how are you liking the B5M? I've been off for a few months and thinking about making the move back to a MM buggy. Any of you running on med to low grip tracks?

Some guys swear the MM works outdoors on low bite. But, my experience has been a big no. Mainly because an outdoor watered track can greatly change mid heat and the car becomes hard to drive. On, the upside, if you get a MM and dislike it, the mm to rm conversion is pretty cheap, lol. The RM to MM is more pricey to convert

Hey Wild Cherry, I am looking to try a different setup. I am running 17.5 with the MIP Puck system ready to go in, could you suggest a good setup for stock?
