TeamOSG 03-07-2012 08:58 PM

Been testing multiple combinations with the MIP Bypass 1 pistons with Losi BB springs. Buggy feels really good on fast sweepers and holds the inside line well. I still get some chassis slap overshooting triples, but that is expected.

Has anyone else tried the Bypass 1's? If so, any feedback is much appreciated.

I agree. I will be using these for inspiration after my buggy finally arrives.

Whoever wired that car obviously remembered to bring their towel.

Taking a bit of a break looking at others nicely wired cars, can someone please tell me what Kyosho part numbers they are using for the BB springs??
I have asked this question to a couple of times via PM to a couple of members, but still no replies after a week of waiting. Someone please help!

TJMac 03-08-2012 04:47 PM

Dude yours is just as clean as mine is. In fact, I like how you routed your battery leads better than how I did mine (I did the Deans and am regretting it, they're simply not needed).

Thanx. I appreciate it. I could take the top plate off some time and shoot it. But I used the flat sensor wire. I put down some Losi servo tape and laid all the flat wires on it, then took black servo tape and covered it. Its low and tight and wont budge. The black collects dust but is hidden. Yours is much cleaner. Next kit I am going to go the extra mile and replicate yours. These B44 kits are tough to hide wires. And be able to pull the top plate on the fly. Yours is dialed.

That location I have found to be pretty safe as far as a T-bone or marshal shutting it off. On switch forward BTW.

BTW if you ever run yours that way on the battery. make the jumper a bit long. It helps for pulling and re-installing them.

I have a shock question, i see all this talk about kyosho BB springs etc...why dont they run the hole shock body's etc, losi or kyosho...will either complete shock fit in the b44.1

Personally I don't run the 22 shocks on my b4 mainly due to cost reasons. I have done testing with them and really liked them but they were not that much better than the stock shocks.

So I bought the collars and the spring cups for the stock B4.1 shocks and put my 22 shocks back on my 22 and sold it.

If i had bought a complete set of 22 shocks it would have been close to $120 for everything.

I dont know about how they fit on a b44.1 but I was able to get them to fit perfectly on my b4.1 and had more than enough droop.

does the AE gear diff fit in the b44-b44.1?

No, it does not. The gear diff is for the 2wd off road cars.

I have ran the 5.5 6.5 8.5 and 10.5 all season. Reedy Sonic all the way. Ya have to try them. You can always sell it if you don't like it. I'm sure it will be true love, well it was for me.

I have an LRP X20 preordered. I will get back to you guys asap!

how is the 6.5 turn thats what I'm looking at how smooth in low end and is there enough top end

crashnburn 03-09-2012 12:35 PM

I was running a LRP Vector X-12 6.5 and it has plenty of top end geared at 18/81. Always wanted to run on the hot side though. (145-156) Just a little punchy on the lower end, but controllable .
Just pulled it out to try an 8.5, so you might see my 6.5 up for sale.

I have ran the 5.5 and it is just as smooth as the 10.5. Only with more top end and power. The power band on these motors are a bit tough to describe.

So I will say its like a rubber band soft when you stretch it and the more you stretch it the tighter it gets. Most of the motors I have ran are to punchy for the infield. These motors are so smooth that if you have finger discipline you will be faster in the infield and as fast as any motor in the short and long shoots.

Best motor I have found for all round off road racing and when the track dries its a dream.
They run cool and consistent through out a 7 minute race I can tell ya that. I'm sold and its the only motor I have put any money towards all season. I'm not sponsored and can buy or test any brand I want.
Good luck on your choice. 6.5/7.5 is pretty much all you would ever need at an indoor track but the 5.5 is so smooth I enjoy the power on reserve until the straight. I melted the slipper over the weekend with the 5.5 so Its getting put on lock down till I feel like flying again. It took 2 weeks of racing and a 3 day trophy race to kill my slipper with the 5.5. If that helps.
Good luck... Its a tough choice and there are a lot of motors out there. I don't recommend many things but in the reedy line I will. And highly.
