Stock is 6 degrees.

You can look at all the baseline starting setups on petit rc and you will see that all indicate 6 deg c hubs because that's what comes with the car.

Measure them, they are:

4 degrees

You can either measure, of believe me (I'm really close to the source), there are definitely no 6 deg c-hubs available. I know that they are mentioned somewhere, but this is wrong and probably a misunderstanding.

Just put on a Hudy setup station and find out the real castor angles. Any antidive will reduce it anyway

I also think there may be a clue in the part numbers

B7-413W & BD-413G

what are the chances the new part numbers will be B7-613W & B7-613G

I had this conversation with cyclonetog last Saturday when I was racing - I had built my car with B7-B413W thinking I was changing from the kit 4 degrees to a 6 degree version. During the day I thought that I would like to try the 4 degree hubs and when I put the kit ones back on the car felt exactly the same!

So parts wise there is;

BD-413 (Supposedly the kit 4 degree hub)
BD-413G (The graphite 4 degree version)
B7-413 (Some are saying are 6 degree but they are not)

Almost correct, the B7-413W is the kit hub of the BD7, with the cut out for the double joints, the BD-413/G were the BD5 hubs without the cut out. But all are 4 degrees

I think we will agree they are all 4 degrees

Speaking from experience, the car is solid. I have had some serious hits and accident in my 17.5 blinky class, and only so far broke a rear hub because i was hit at full speed.

Your best bet to make it bullet proof is to get the larger bumper


Yokomo Wide Bumper (BD-001W)
