on to a more serious note.

1. Shock shafts and plastic shock ends for the rear when landing hard. Being rear motor mounted, buggy tends to land on the rear. Especially with mod, where it tends to launch like a rocket. thread will strip on the shock shaft and shock ends will come loose.

2. wing mounts.

3. both front arms.

4. bumper from RPM. its longer than stock. great for front collision.

5. wheel hub bearings.

Shane, I'm sure Trent does have an LRP t-shirt and next week he will have an stunning new blue Associated one.

Are the rear wheel nuts on a B44 the same as a B4, if so I'm sure I've got a few, I bought heaps because I keep dropping them in the grass.

Ditto the RPM front bumper, haven't broken any arms since I got one.

Also, I put a drop of CA glue on my shock shafts when I replace them after doing rebuilds. Haven't stripped one since I started doing this and they are easy enough to take off when you need to as the CA will "crack" when you unwind.

Also, who is HYPM? I need to see you on Sunday about the charger.

Jenny - you can also give the Baklas a call at Northern Beaches Hobbies.
i've had good luck getting some B4/44 parts off them.

if it all goes as planned .. then there'll be another b4 joining the club

Dave Ryan and Shane Edwards - you need to get your entries in NOW! We are counting on you two as our "gun" drivers. You're winners, you're champs, you're the tops, You're the top!
You're the Coliseum.
You're the top!
You're the Louver Museum.
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss
You're a Bendel bonnet,
A Shakespeare's sonnet,
You're Mickey Mouse.
You're the Nile,
You're the Tower of Pisa,
You're the smile on the Mona Lisa
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!

Feel like winners now - well get your entries in!!!!
