my bet is that we get this exact buggy. the bj4 was the ongoing prototype that associated and jconcepts refined to the b44...thanks jconcepts and associated!

from left to right..cav, maifield, tebo...then obviously, all three together.
The top three used box stock B44 kits. I used .5 degree rear hubs and a slightly thinner rear anti roll bar.

In many cases, contract are one sided. The driver can't leave when he wants but can be dumped at any time. In this case it is probably to save money.

Trinity blows, anyway. Does anyone have good video footage or link to footage of the worlds? I have only found a few so far on Youtube.

Is there any setup sheet from the worlds available?
I'd like to see Mike Truhe's setups for CR and 4G+

Rick, nice to see you running w/ AE now. I remember you from WAAAAAAY back, does your wife still have the "RCWidow" license plate? Great job for AE, esp. on a brand new 4wd kit.

I've been an AE fan since i got my first kit (T2) and the B44 is looking Awfully tempting. looking at either the MRC car OR the B44.

Hey Rick, well done as always

What front drive did you use, One-Way or a diff?

Thanks,
Eirik

the b44 is just the same bj4 w.e. that these guys have been running since the worlds in 2005....but the b44 has a new front shock tower, new slipper, new shell, and some refined composite parts through out (such as shock tower mounts, carriers, wing mounts, diff cases, etc etc) but the specs are the same...i doubt these guys changed the formula that has won about every event under the sun.

no ground breaking double top secret parts on any of the b44's that i can see...been in the hobby for a long time, but maybe i'm missing something??

what parts did you all see different on the cars? i sure didn't see it.
we sat right beside Rick and the associated boys and watched them build brand new B44's from production run boxes which were in fully fledged customer boxes - read artwork done.

I'll admit they were building them for the impeding rain which never came.

Lou C won the quickest build from what I saw.
