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.
I will run my b64 till I run out of spaces lol

Wow, over $500 and it won't be long before people think they need to spend even more money in upgrades. At some point things are going to get too expensive to keep people interested. $300 was my limit.

$300 limit for a 4wd buggy? When was the last time that happened?

I can remember as far back as the B44.2 launch and that was ~$360 at launch if I'm not mistaken. B44.3 was ~$380, and B64 ~$420. Roughly.

I wanted the new PR wheeler for carpet but if this one hits stores first, I'll be grabbing this one instead.

For a new, current 4wd buggy, $500 is pretty much the going rate. A couple go as low as $450 and the TLR 22-4 2.0 is selling for $349.

Doesn't look like they will offer separate kits for carpet/dirt, since they specifically call out including swaybars for both conditions. Guess you'll need to spend another $60 to add a center gear diff, springs, and maybe pistons to get set up for medium/low traction tracks.

Bigger front axle bearing is a nice touch, those small bearings take a ton of abuse.

How many of us don't already have springs and different shock pistons, a few yes but not a majority.

IMO, you don't "need" to run a gear diff on dirt. I run a slipper on mine and I do just fine. Although I will say, racing is a mental game and if I feel like I need something then I will go buy it. So I do see where you are coming from.
