What are you going to do for those of us who bought the first batch of product?

I had a little bit of that but I trimmed the edges off the plastic drive cup (where it was binding) and there were no more issues. I used them Sunday and had 0 issues.

Good question!! I have one ordered but have'nt received it yet. Send them back for replacement?
Trimming the edges of the plastic peice would'nt be too bad I suppose as Dr. has mentioned.

Default Front tower

Is anyone running the 4mm diggity front tower on their b44? The holes on mine are pretty big so the screws have a lot of slop.

For those of you using LiPo and who feel the need to add extra weight to your kits for better overall balance... I suggest contacting Dustin over at Team Fusion. Check their website out -

The current tray works well with the Maxamps packs, but not so good with the Trakpower. IMHO, the new trays should be almost to the edge of the chassis to give clearance to get the 4mm connectors inside without hitting the body, and the longer standoffs since the original ones are about 6mm too short. Maybe make a specific tray for the Maxamps packs (original tray), and one for the Trakpower users (new design).

Yes, good question... especially for those of us who now own the TrakPower gold bricks!

We are running the TrakPower saddles with no issues. The issue of the standoffs being short,, dont think will be an issue either. I just plan on reusing the thumb screws. I dont like the battery hold down straps though. I want to find the carbon ones that would match the chassi.

I noticed that the Diggity posts are as long as stock posts. I was able to get the Track Power bricks in and when I used a long screw to tighten down the strap, I could hear them "squeezing" in. I think they will be fine, I just don't like the carbon fiber straps slightly bending under the pressure. I hope they don't break under a hard crash.

John, my diggity posts were longer than the stock posts. I've used them two race days now and taken some good hits and had no problems with the posts, trays or anything. The trakpower packs with the wires going to the outside cause no problems binding with the body if you're careful with you soldering (don't solder the plugs on your esc B-Mag style).

These new braces should be on the website with in a week or so!

Damon,


Any Info or Updates with regard to the re-designed B44 Battery Brace?!

Many thanks!

Hey all:

We are currently only waiting on CF material to arrive from our source. We have already finished with the changes and longer standoffs are in stock, so once the material arrives (7-14days) then we will be selling them again.

Thanks to Blake and others who have supported the product and are helping others get theirs working!

Damon

For the people who have recieved the first batch please email me and I will put you on the list to get the new ones. We had sent some of the re-designed ones out towards the last 10-15 orders so some of you might not have an issue with your center shaft cup, but if you want the longer standoffs please email me as well!!

Damon
