I agree they are probably testing various plunge lengths, it would be cool if they were to copy Durango's method of adjustable plunge:

I believe the current B6.1 axles have two dogbone depths to accommodate 65 and 67mm driveshafts. I don't know if there's a dogbone plunge option with that adjustment, though.

Cant, Xray already tried it and the patent police caught them.

well, made it all the way to the 2nd post before the inevitable 'it looks like xxx'.

+1 to the earlier comment on the bone sleeves. my first thought was to support variable length, but not sure two setscrews and a sleeve would handle the torque.

You may be right. I was just remembering Durango had the diff case that separated from the bulkhead like that. I don't think theirs had any height adjustment though.

Cut and shut driveshafts? I wouldnt have thought so. Its just a mock up of what the car might look like.

Both are the work of Gerd Strenge, so it does not matter at all.

Well anyway the B74 looks awesome. But now do I sell my 64 now and get a decent price for it, and have a few weeks not running wheeler or do I keep it as a mod/practice car.

I thought there would be a little more changed, but I guess not much really needed to be done to it. Unlike someone elses 25 year old design that team members hack to death.

Waiting for a new kit always involves a certain risk of delys etc. If you are racing regularly and don't need the money to pay for the B74, it will be better to keep it until the new kit and spares are sitting on your desk.

waiting a few weeks wont matter. Everyone knows that the b74 is on the way, so you won't catch anyone by surprise if you sell it today.

Ok, so now that a new 4wd buggy is confirmed, onto the serious question! “Where can I get front wheels for it?” (he he..)

Lol. Amain has Mono fronts in stock if that is what you are looking for. There's an interview on the car with Bob Stellflue on JConcepts' facebook page, but unfortunately there's neither much information nor an ETA.
