i run a BJ4WE but as for arms if you have the updated ones then no, but if you break them you can put on the old bulkhead and run the old arms(b4) OR if you dont have the old bulkhead you can dremmel down some B4 arms to work. as for knuckles those are losi and they are out as of wednesday. shock towers- bring you own
rear arms- B4 with some dremmeling
diff gears- tc3 i believe
rearhubs- b4
i think that covers the most breakable parts

Hey Turbo Joe

So Fridays sounds like a No-Go day... I need lots of people on the Track, so People(Not Drivers)don't see how slow I'm going!!!hahaha


Thanks!!!

Brad


Hey rcdude19641

Ok so I better Order some Arms!!! WOW just look at my BJ4 Really Good it got Alu Knuckles!!!NICE!!!

How do you like your BJ4WE??? I think I'll Order a Conversion Kit, just to have on Hand. First I've got to Learn How to Drive...hahaha

Wonder how the BJ4WE compares to the X-5... The only problem I see with the X-5 is the Chassie seem kind of small No Room for a Brushless/
Controller(Novak) and a DSM Pro Reciever and there Battery lay-out...


Thanks!!!

Brad

Default Hey I know you

Wassup, Valantin. I know who you are. You 're not a bad driver for a nube.
I don't know what Turbo Joe is trying to say, but you 're pretty much the only Chubby Asian kid at SoCal ( most Asians are skinny ).

Hey Turbo Joe, so you do 4WD ? you must suck huh ? because I don't know any Joe that place in the top 3 consistently.

Yeah, compared to some of the guys there, I suck...that's how it goes. Finishing "top 3" at SoCal isn't really a dream of mine, so it's not really something I spend a lot of time worrying about. If I finish in one piece or place in one main or the other, that's plenty good for me.

Hey rcdude19641

WOW, front Shock Towers... mine are Carbon fiber... You guys still Break them??? it would seem to me the mount would go before the Tower went... Well better order one or two...hahaha I've got a few arms so I'm Ok for now.

They Don't use Standard Gear(Spur)... IF not what Spur gears works, what Spur gear Tooth sizes should I have??? I just keep a set of pinion gears on me 64/48 pitch. WOW, wonder of my Old Pinions Gears will fit on the Novak Brushless I have...hahaha Better Check!!!

Are you running Brushless, if so what kind, and any problems fitting it on your BJ4WE???


Thanks!!!

Brad

shock towers can still break. its hard to but why chance it? as for gears the spur i believe its a b4. the internal gears are tc3 i think. as for motor im running a checkpoint 9x2. you should have no trouble putting in a GTB

joe next time we are at socal i'll let you have a couple laps with my car
