As I still have a lot of B-max arms it's good to know they ca nget to work in case of emergency.
I really tortured the buggy today and i tried every thing to break those arms and i could'nt, my stock arms were breaking from big jumps so its more comforting for me to no that wont happen with these arms and as you no there is nothing unbreakable in RC but at least now if i break them it will be my fault were as before they were breaking for no apparent reason.

Dont give up on the buggy, get it out there and get it running, the buggy is absolutely awesome and your going to love it while its working and all i can suggest is have some spare arms, now if you dont run on a large track with large jumps you probably wont experience arms failing, so get it on the track and enjoy. l love the buggy so much i couldnt handle it just sitting there collecting dust and thats when i started playing around with different arms until i found one i could make work.

The perils of being an early adopter...give it some time, they will get it worked out.

The Euro has historically been above the USD and sits at $1.09 USD per Euro. 2 years ago it was about $1.30 USD per Euro so it has dropped by about 15-18%. The dollar is strong which makes buying products from Europe cheaper for people in the States. I imagine Amain was concerned about losing sales to Euro sites like Framega so they dropped the YZ-4 price by $20.

Ran it first time today boiled the stock arms for five minutes. Ran perfect took some good whacks no breakage thus far. Love the car, turns in great handles great. Now I just gotta get used to the natural braking effect the driveline has.

Your are correct my friend. I was trying to say pay in euros, or whatever currency may be accepted that is weaker than the dollar. thus don't buy abroad without converting your money first.

The 6mm rear belt gets rid of all the rolling resistance and in my case really freed up the transmission, out off all the upgrades this one i felt made a huge difference, and it completely removed all of the natural breaking, the buggy in general felt heaps freer

Anyone else find you can't run the inner camberlink hole on the rear inner ballstud if the shock tower is on the rear? It fouls up against the tower?

Dave,

Mine is just a hair away from touching the rear tower but the movement is fine. I m running the carbon shock towers though
