Great car to drive, you can really push it like a 4wd or shortcourse but has the smoothness to it like the B5M, great combo. Can't wait to enter some major events with it.
Glad to hear some first good impressions. Thanks for the feedback. I'm pretty excited to build and start driving this thing. Been enjoying the heck out of my 44.3 being my only running vehicle for some time now.

Yeah it's a great release from AE, like I said I haven't been doing this long, so my feedback might not be the best at times. I have only just started to be at the pointy end of the field in buggies so still a long way to go.

Will be good to see how it goes against the other mid mount trucks.
Definitely recommend starting close if not same as book setup, keep shorty pack on hand. I will probably change my shocks to 1 limiter front now I know what it's like and how much grip it has.

So what wheels are you guys using? I bought a set of j concepts for a 4.1 and there isn't enough clearance on the front. The turnbuckle end hits the inside of the wheel. Different offset on the t4.1?

Standard AE 12mm hex truck wheels.
Original t4.1 was bearing wasn't it?
ASC7852 for white and 7853 for yellow truck rims.
There were different part numbers for the T4.1 front and rear rims so they would be different offset.
They use same front and rear now. So you need something that says fits either T4.2 or T5. T4.2 was 12mm hex front and rear so same as T5

It showed t4.1 hex conversion on the bag. Unfortunately thesc were the only white wheels they had in stock and I glued tires to them already. This kinda sucks. Guess I'll have to buy 2 more and use the fronts for the rear when they ware out.

That's the same and only AE truck hex wheel all JC drivers are using.

Default Turnbuckles

Another option on turnbuckles for these, Lunsford 1074, LNSC1015. Originally for RC10GT and T2/T3 . JConcepts fins are still on BO.

Found them on ebay for $12/pair shipped- need a total of 6.

I read this wrong earlier and thought you said your kit came with a gear diff in addition to the ball diff. I was about to post complaining that I only got a ball diff.

But I only see one gear for the diff. It's packaged with the diff lube and black grease for some reason.

I'm saying that's the only hex wheel JC makes for AE trucks. Several have been using them without issue.
