Can any one tell me where I might get alloy spindle's and spindle carrier's?
I found the graphite one's seem to break quite easily.

Default 4wd drifter

What kinda tires are they, I'm not a follower so i usually don't run what the "fast" guy is running I run what works for me and my driving senerio!
Personally I like bowties, but there are other tires that will give more rear bite. Adjusting shock position will also change some of the rear slidding out issue.

When is your ride loosing traction? out of turns? into turns?? just plan crazy on the straights? have you made any camber adjustments? good luck!

It seems to break away as I come out of loose corners. I'm going to have a look at my camber settings and do some testing this weekend.

i think that the b4's are longer. you could always anodize them yourself. then you can do any color scheme you want. as for any other companies making the colored ones im not sure.

The first things I would try are:
Shorter rear link (probably going more "out" on the tower)
Shorter wheelbase
More front caster

I hadn't considered a shorter wheel base. What benefits will each of these changes give me?

I would not go longer wheelbase. The car is a handful as is. Try softer springs or lighter oil in back. Check camber. Top of shock in. Batt back. Stiffer setup up front.

I'm already running a long wheel base, so that will be the first thing I change. Ill have to do some more trial and era testing. If I go a larger pinion will that allow me to go a tad slower out of a corner, thus reducing the amount of wheel spin on exit?
