What is the main differences between the BJ4 and the world's kit. I see that the motor was moved to the center of the buggy. Might be a stupid question, but is the W.E. that much better.

thnx,
Mike

The motor is central, and the batteries are saddle configuration. I hear that it is better out of the corner and more stable. I have heard that if you run on a high bite smooth indoor track the original is about as fast.

I raced both quite a lot, and I do think the WE is an improvement - it feels more planted on rougher tracks.
The standard car was awesome indoors though.

[mfishel] - Youre exactly correct. Moving the batteries and motor created better balance out of the box as well. The car comes with the HD front arms and revised bulkhead (although the last run of BJ4s may have as well). If youre able to pick up an original car, I would highly reccomend it. After a while, you can get a conversion kit and have ~35% new components.

I have a Worlds Edition, and it is nice.
I have installed a GT2 steering rack/servo saver on it. It seems to work well and the geometry is all the same. I had to raise the top plate however, with a spacer between it and the center bulkhead. Do you think this will introduce more chassis flex? This is what concerns me.

It might, but honestly having a stiff chassis offroad isnt always the most desirable thing. I would say that as long as the new steering rack is setup appropriately, you wont notice a difference from the chassis flex.

I know Maifield had it in his truck, and I would assume it in his other vehicles as well, but I wont sweat to it, haha.

Yes Maifield wins bot A1 and A3 in truck and 2wheel takes the overall. finishes third overall in 4 wheel, a great feat coming from ninth on the grid. Cav. did win 4 wheel.


Andy since r/c car action got pics of the little bro bag. I would asy we can let it out here. i watched the pics happen with Jason standing there.

it is a sweet set of tools that come in two sets, standard and metric with a nice zipper bag with pockets to keep them in. also you can adjust the length of the tool with two positions to lock down the set screw that holds the tip in. and a few are balls ends. DIALED.
