Now let’s move on and discuss the durability of the front arms... lol

What about discussing the durability of other cars' front arms?

So maybe there will be a release date given, at a big race even April 6 or April 13? Think there is a Jcon race this weekend, so maybe.

I race a race with 6 of them 2 weeks ago. Was just after a track change, suffice to say I was the last man standing in the 7 minute main, the yokomos dropped like flies.

Most Durable: Xray, HB, Sworks, Serpent.

no parts support for your durable brands locally, lol. And I see serpents broken all the time. The xray guys do well, but they still break arms

Now that we are done with the front arm topic, let's please stick to the B74.

I wouldn’t consider the tekno durable, it has all kinds of issues.

The HB can take a beating!! Which is great because parts are scarce.

Only HB D418 and xray are most durable in my local track during winter season.

Dont think anybody said bad on dirt. You might have to use different parts to get it to work. im sure it will work good on both surfaces

The clear prototype on the first page has a gear diff in the center which is a staple on dirt for the most part. The B64's mediocre carpet capabilities are what drove most of the B74 changes, but I don't think they were at the expense of handling in the dirt. That being said, if you already have a B64D with the latest steering rack and other common dirt modifications, I don't think you'll see a massive improvement with the B74. Carpet guys will see the largest benefit, for sure.
