Ok, I want some opinions.. I just got a package of tires, and I have some 2.2 front scrubs, and some aka red foams, but the kicker is the foams are for a 4wd buggy.. I was able to fit it on, and it looks and feels good, but I'm curious if it will be too firm..

Is there anyone else that has done this? Thoughts?

Sounds like a lot of foam for that tire. If it were me and that was my only option I would trim them down a bit or use open cells.

How long are the cut gears lasting with a slipper eliminator? Any one here coming to the Cactus Classic this year?

Anyone running the Pucks with the Avid caged thrust? Do I need to reuse the MIP grooved thrust or can I just drop the Avid thrust in?

Yes, I know.
For the MIP diff you will need to buy a new thrust washer or re-use the old one, it has a little step on it where it fits into the diff outdrive.

way too many factors. hard parts = break more easily and prove a more "consistent" feel due to the less flex. So more hard parts are more consistent, less durable. When you mix and match, they are tons of combinations to tell you what everyone does. Most people do the arms and spindles. Some guys do the rear tower. Lately more and more guys are using a plastic front tower for a little flex.

When I tried to use the AE thrusts it wouldn't tighten down, but T-bagger over here says it worked for him?

Ok, sounds good. Just trying to get my car ready for States. Been spending all my time on the d413, time to give my stock buggy some love.

What about flat vs Gullwing front arms and the difference between stock and running the rear motor arms flipped on the rear?

And people wonder why these threads are 587 pages long. Don't bother to read anything, just jump in and ask the same stuff over and over..

haha, you need a complete guide to tuning the B5 with every possible mod and option part. Gulwing arms give a little more turn in, flats feel smoother, RM arms in the rear move the hubs forward for more rear bite. Locals here run the gulwing arms upside down with -2mm ackerman. How is that for throwing a wrench at you, lol.
