I would not worry about those unless you are running stock class. You will get the most benefit from practice. Do not waste your money on useless hop-ups.

thanks. also do you kno of any company that makes green anodized parts for the B4? im a fan of blue but i love green more. i plan to get lunsford turnbuckles, ball studs, hingepins, and ball ends and have the turnbuckles anodized green. id kinda like to be able to get green parts without having to strip and re-anodize them.

I've never seen any green parts for the B4 or T4. There aren't many aftermarket aluminum pieces avaliable.

That's all you need alloy wise for racing. If you're racing and bust the front bulkhead or front chassis brace regularly ya need to work on your driving and use a slower motor to start with.

Titanium ballstuds on the rear chassis brace for the camber links is also a good idea. The stainless steal ones tend to bend/break on this. Since switching to titanium, I haven't had a problem with the studs.

Thats the only nessecary aluminum part besides the motor plate obviously. I don't even run that aluminum brace on my T4 and I've had zero issues with it. My B4 was a FT though, so I don't know how well the plastic one holds up on the buggy, my guess is it would be pretty good. You might be able to get the Ti turnbuckles done in green as well. An green aluminum battery strap would be cool too!

What's wrong about it? I've had green cars for years now.. Currently everything I run gets anodized teal, though..

The aluminum anodizing setup in my workshop. For the titanium turnbuckles and ballstuds I built an anodizer out of a rectifier diode and some very large (read: dangerous) capacitors. If you just plan on anodizing one vehicle, it's cheaper in the long run just to send your parts to an anodizer. Anodizing isn't just something you throw together in your garage and "it works".. it take alot of research, time, and money before you can achieve consistent results (I'm talking about aluminum anodizing.. titanium is a piece of cake, but the voltages needed to reach the color green can be dangerous..i.e.- 130V+ )
