thanks in advance...
There is one on ebay right now, but I cant say of any shops that have them in stock. We're putting more kits together right now as we've just recieved some parts we were awaiting. I'll definately post as soon as they're ready to go.

Even though my results basically equalled nothing, I've got some very fond memories of the trip, the chassis incident and 4wd Mod B final being up there
4WD B-main....The perfect battle down the back straight. I think they both blew up didn't they?

since GP / Tower has the decal kit for the BJ4, does that mean you guys are getting close to setting up a deal for them to sell parts and bodies for them too?

Im not in a position to say when Great Planes will carry our kit/parts, but it not likely in the very near future.

I was hoping for last friday or today, but I guess not, it will be a surprise to me too when they show up, haha.

Paul -Pick up a set so you can fondle your own wrenches.

they both burned up the left front tires. one to the point the foam was showing. either way it was worth it to watch. but pretty expensive cars to just go out there and "send them"

Hey guys. I just received by orig. BJ4 and am building it now. So far a very fun build. One problem that I have is the slipper! I literally broke about 5 hex drivers trying the tighten the nut. Anyone have any advice on tightening it? Also within 5 min I noticed that I was missing a correct screw...Two small problems but overall I am very impressed. Can't wait to finish building it. Anyways thanks Jconcepts for an amazing buggy. Keep up the great work!

blackhawk444, i think if you broke hex's tightening it then it might be tight enough. Remember it should somewhat slip under ALOT of pressure so it doesnt break drivetrain parts. I think the manual says to tighten and back out 1/2 or 1/4 turn.

Perhaps something is not right in your assembly? I recently assembled a worlds edition. There weren't any issues with the center diff that I had. I did forget to tighten it before running it for the first time, but it was easily corrected with the 5/64 allen driver.

Ive done the exact same thing, no worries. I trimmed some of the nylon away to help loosen the fit. I ended up using the broken tips and channel locks to tighten it.

Guys he's talking about the original car with the hole in the slipper shaft for adjustment.
