Replied. Here is a pic of my car for whatever reason. Im using B44 caster blocks, steering blocks, rear arms, rear hubs, and front hexes. The car was also update with the WE steering bellcranks, steering rack, direct shaft kit, and a rear sway bar.

Thanks Andy. Its looks like I might be selling my b4 to get one!!

Sweet, let me know if you need any help or setup information. I think you'll really like the car, I forgot how good it was, haha.

Hi Andy,

I've read through some of this thread and it is pretty steeped in information.

Forgive me if this has been covered, yet I have a couple of simple questions I would like to ask:

~ can you recommend a tool for adjusting the motor mount screws on the BJ4WE? I've currently got a long ball-headed driver, yet it is still a tight fit and I'm wondering if there is anything else on the market that will make this easier.

~ using the B4 as a guide, how much play between the pinion and spur is acceptable / recommended? Should the pinion be married right up tight to the spur, or a little looser yet not as much play as the B4?

The bottom screw is difficult to reach, but I think that either something super short such as an L-wrench, or a long driver at an angle are the best solutions.

Mesh really depends on what motor youre using, the lower the turn, the more harder it is to mesh up small pinions. The B4 manual presents gear mesh correctly, so I would just follow that as close as possible.

Questions??

Sorry if this question has been answered, but a quick search of the thread yielded no results:

What parts are interchangeable between the B44 and BJ4WE? I'm mainly interested in finding out if the servo saver and gearboxes from the B44 can be used on the BJ, but a complete list would be great.

I went over quite a bit of it earlier actually. The B44 gearboxes and steering assembly are not interchangeable.

Im using B44 caster blocks, steering blocks, rear arms, rear hubs, and front hexes. The car was also update with the WE steering bellcranks, steering rack, direct shaft kit, and a rear sway bar.

No problem, I would have liked to use more B44 parts, haha.

You can also use b44 front arms but you have to dremel them a little bit. not that hard to do and the arms are pretty flexible

Heres a pic of my B4 with some sweet new rims and tires (unglued) Are the foams included with the new tires meant to be trimmed, or just mounted as is?, thanks in advance!
