Gotta wonder why there is a hex on the front at all. Could just as easily be a disc instead of a hex. I suppose it reduces the possibility of the wheel nut loosening from jarring impacts spinning the rim on the axle.

Thanks! I went ahead and ordered a couple sets of the JC 2.2 to go along with a set of Pro-line Primes which seem to be working well at my local track at the moment.

So you can tighten and loosen the wheel nut

Correct. If you didn't have a hex we would be back to bearings in the wheels.

Please help. I'm considering buying a B5M. my last buggy was a b4.2 and loved it, but been out of the hobby for a little while.

I'm thinking either the lite, or the Cham. edition.
I will be racing on turf. (Stock)
Also considering waiting until the laydown tranny comes out.

Any advise or suggestions would be great.

Knurl the face of the disc and knurl the backside of the axle like the JConcepts axles.

We don't need to re-invent the wheel...

Hey guys I race on carpet like I said before, both tracks are high grip and I need a suggestion on a mod motor. Both tracks are mid to large (125ft x 50ft). I used to used a 10.5 LRP with an old LRP ESC the last time and I couln't keep up (this was the combo last time I raced 2wd outdoors). The top guys are using 6.5 to 7.0!!! Ant suggestions for a motor and speed control?

I guess I won't try the LCG then. Once we go to outdoor we don't race indoors. So we can wait until heading back indoors in the Fall. Maybe AE will have their own version out by then at a cheaper price.

I'm not comfortable building a ball diff.. I can never get them right. I like gear diffs for this reason alone. Thank you for the starting point

Yea i don't blame you don't exactly care for them ethier prefer gear diffs but if you break them in good, and keep it from barking they actually last long and smooth . No need for the carbibe balls the MIP rebuild kit is cheap and good .

But 3k or 2k should work on loose dirt i think .

Ball diffs are the easiest to build and if properly built and broken-in, will last a long time and give much better results than a gear diff.

Ball-diff: low to high traction
Gear diff: uber high traction

Is there a part number that can be ordered to use to mount the wing on the JC wing mount? Apparently you have to provide your own hardware?

Hardware consists of screws...You should have some screws handy or be able to pick some up at your lhs.
