Mini8 Menace 05-09-2012 11:30 AM

just got some parts and ballast weights wondering where to place the weights haven't really found any info on placement or how to know where to place them is there a way to find out where to place them

Asharus 05-09-2012 11:33 AM

the ballast weight screws into the chassis, in between the saddle pack, some guys put 1/2 oz in between the speedo and the battery on the left side of the chassis as well.

Mini8 Menace 05-09-2012 11:41 AM

Don't use the bullets that come with the packs. Pick up some duratax 4mm bullets. I have seen people use those crappy bullets on reedy packs with the same result. After switching no more problems of melting.

i usually run between 2 and 4 drag depending on track layout if it has long straights and sharp turns i would recommend 3-4 smaller tracks and not as fast of a track then 2-3 but it all depends on your driving style what i would recommend playing around with the settings until its fit your drive style when your at the track ask around and and see what other ppl are running and their advice you won't get the same answer but start out with a little higher drag and take some off as you get more comfortable

IRM616 05-09-2012 07:29 PM

I need to get the longer rpm ball caps for my b44. I know rpm makes two sizes. Which one is longer? Thanks

T3tsaya 05-09-2012 07:45 PM

any mods to make the kyosho big bores fit?

SAMCRO 05-10-2012 05:49 AM

What brand/type of springs are most people finding to work well on the b44.1? I have ran mine just once and the AE springs seem kind of old school compared to what I am running on my other cars.

Losi spring cups on the bottom, traxxas collar on the top (or avids when they come out next week) and kyosho BB springs. The spring to run are yellow front/white rear. Also gold works great for the front also, a bit softer and gives more steering..i have all 3 springs if your looking for a set...they are 20.00 a pair, so thats 60.00 in springs i have and willing to part with...somebody can have these springs for 40.00 shipped...ghea makes some real nice spring collars too

I'm running TLR BB springs on mine, Green Front/White Rear. Car is dialed.

johnbugman 05-10-2012 11:36 AM

Kyoshow bb shocks do not fit. evn if u got them mounted up the angle is way off on them it wouldn't handle correctly. trust me i tried it!

MattP 05-10-2012 02:48 PM

Ok, going to give the 44.1 another try. Just picked up mattp's roller. Will do the bb spring conversion, but what about the hex? The front is already a hex but i could not find the size? Is it 12mm? On the 44 the hex goes on first and then the pin. Not sure if this will work with the hex conversion hubs. The rear is the same as the b4 so that will work and i can share wheels between cars. What about front hex? If the front hex conversion works what wheels do i use?

The steering rack looks different between the b4 and b44. i assume the avid rack will not fit the 44?

t0p_sh0tta 05-12-2012 09:20 AM

There is no front hex conversion.

Ya, but can I use the concepts, proline, or avid metal hexes?

D3mOnIcRc8e 05-13-2012 10:13 PM

So last week i broke my Front a arm on the first turn on the track. lol im still pretty new to track driving but im planning ok getting more practice in and getting better. So i have gotten the T bone bumpers for my B44.1 and im going to give it a try with them on. I hope this helps me be a better driver with this buggy. Then i can take the things off lol.

No. B44.1 front hex is 9mm (or maybe 9.5mm). Even if you were able to switch hexes, the B4.1 front hex wheels have a much different offset.

What about the rears? Can I do the Hex conversion and run b4 wheels? Will the offset be the same?

Yes the rears will work.

I heard that JConcepts is working on a B44 front wheel. Assuming it's going to take the 12mm JC hexes as well. Although, considering the front offset on the B44 is pretty high, I can't see a Mono wheel for the B44 looking like they do for the B4.

Tight slipper assemblies
 
Wondering if anyone has had problems with the B44.1 slipper assembly being very tight when you mounted it in the car? My 44.1 built up OK, but when I tried to put on the vented hubs the unit was very tight to assemble onto the chassis and would not spin freely. I measured up the hubs and they were 5.0mm wide (standard was 4.7mm). This adds 0.6mm to the assembly and caused it to be tight.

I assumed it was just the vented hubs, but the other day a friend built his up (standard hubs) and it was also too tight. They measured up 5.0mm as well.

Anyone else come across this? Not sure if it is a batch out of tolerance or a design change? It is fixable by filing off 0.3mm from the outer end of the hubs (the end that is away from the spur gear.)

thanks for help

Ballast weight helps make the car rotate more off power and settles the rear more in bumps. It makes the car a bit harder to drive and will bottom out more at the rear but generally faster on a tight track. For very high grip flowing tracks, you can try with it removed.

All B44 front hex rims use the standard (~9mm) hex. There are currently no 12mm front hexes for the B44.
