Is It possible to build this car as a rear motor car?

I think the 22 2.0 was the last one with that option out of the box.

Anyone have experience with the Sanwa mt44, m12s, and/or the m17 that can share the pros/cons of each? Currently using a Futaba 4pv and looking to try something new.

Answered that question in the AE B6.3 thread. This question is BTW neither off-road nor car-specific and would have fit much better here. C'mon, you've been around here long anough to know that, haven't you?.

Is there a body that fits the standup transmission or am I stuck with notching out the body?

Hey guys,
Looking at getting a 5.0AC running 21.5 class.

What is recommended to change or beef up for carpet racing? Anything you recommend or just run it out the box???

How about the 5.0 Elite for carpet??? Too much to get it switched over to carpet or stick with the AC?

For the Elite, you'll want a gear diff and some narrow front wheels to convert to carpet. Just make sure to check out the AC manual for the base setup, unless you have a setup specific for your track to go off of. What's drawing you to the Elite kit?

Just this gut feeling a new carpet car will be released the minute I buy the AC or Elite. Elite is also newer and lots of bling bling.

Unless it's overkill and yall tell me stick with the AC then I'll go that route.

Another option (it already has the gear diff) is the 22 5.0 Roller. It's not a 'kit', so you don't get to build it...but, it does already have certain upgrades perfect for running on astro/carpet, including the aforementioned gear diff. In it's "stock" (but already partially-upgraded) configuration, the only upgrade you might need to do (at least, to get you started) is replacing the bearings with better ones.

Keep in mind that since the Elite is a DC car, so aside from the gear diff and carpet front wheels, youíll also need the appropriate springs (and oil) for your carpet setup, the front and rear rollbar kits, and MAYBE a set of the 3.0 shocks (the Elite comes with the 3.5ís), if thatís what people prefer on carpet. So yeah, it might be a bit pricey to convert an Elite for carpet, but at least you also get the Elite C and D blocks, not to mention the VHA rear. Those parts on their own could end up costing you $100 easy, and youíd have to buy the Roll Bar kits anyway, because the AC only comes with the roll bars for the base setup. The Elite really is the best deal considering what you get in the box (which is why they discontinued the DC), so if you see yourself racing on dirt someday, itís not a bad decision either way.

As for a new carpet car, I honestly donít think they need to bring out a totally new buggy. As I have said before, they could do with a 5.1, or call it a a 22X if they want to keep the theme going. Thise changes for carpet that Frank has been talking about, the V2 shock package (with the thin pistons), molded domed shock caps, an easy access diff gearbox, and maybe some optional rear arms to work whatever magic the modded 22X-4 arms seem to be doing for some peopleÖ What else does the buggy need? My only other pet peeve would be to possibly give us a little more room around the front bulkhead braces to get that servo in and out easier, lol.

Comparing the AC kit setup to prep an Elite for carpet, looks like you need some weight up front as well and CVA's are different lengths, unless theres a typo. This is aside from springs, pistons, sways and gear diff. lol

B6.3 it is!

Just wanted to keep it in the family lol
