Just a honest review after using a few sets myself and what other racers showed me.

JConcepts - Bodies, wheels, tires...

If you are interested in seeing some more pics taken from our track please visit Sid's Raceway.

P.S. Thanks to Jason Ruona's Lake Park Setup, it contributed towards my 4wd A-Main win!

These are the changes that I made to the setup:
- no sway bar
- no one-way
- Tires: Front-JConcepts Goosebumps, Rear-ProLine BowTies
Congrats! Its always awesome to hear guys doing well with our products, keep up the good work.

Hi Andy. Similar question to Kyosho_101 but opposite... Does the BJ4WE body (#1100) fit a B44 with Assoc undertray?

The bodies and under trays are interchangeable between the BJ4 and the B44.
IMO this is the best combination:
- JConcepts body (It looks better and provides adequate space for your electronics)
- Associated B44 undertray (it covers more of the chassis than the JC version since it was designed to fit the original BJ4 not the BJ4-WE)

So they seal up well together? I am asking because I can get a good deal on a BJ4WE body (#1100).

Yes they do.
I place velcro along the verticle surface of the B44 undertray and then the matching velcro on the verticle surface of the JConcepts BJ4-WE body and it fits very well. (see photos above)

We simply installed AE steering blocks and axles on his RB5. The hinge pin hole needed drilled out to the Kyosho hinge pin size.

Hay andy, in the manual for the bj4we with building the shocks it says to use the #1 piston for the rear and the #3 piston for the front

but the kit comes with 4 x #1 piston and 8 x #2 piston

Hey Mick, Have a look at what Jordan is running in his B44. That should get you in the ball park. I had a play with his gearing when he first got it but cant remember what we ended up going for. He should be racing tomorrow and is running a 5.5.
Cheers
