Thanks for the great pics! For some reason when I soldered up my motor the other night I decided to run the wires over the cf center brace. Looks much cleaner running them underneath though, I'll have to make that change. :nod:

Rear camber link ball cups pop off rather easy on this new kit. Thinking its just a bad one because same one kept popping off last night at the track. Are there better ones? I used to use the RPM ones years ago but how are they these days?

vw addict 06-22-2012 07:17 AM

I have switched my B4.1, B44.1, and SC10's all to RPM's, they are great!

RPM's are good; Lunsford HD ones even better.

JEFFs SC10 06-22-2012 09:31 PM

Well I should be getting a B44.1 in a few days. I bought it off a member here. It has Losi springs on it, will the Avid's be much better? I want the best performance.

Very excited to drive it!!

Best performance wise go with the avids!

JEFFs SC10 06-22-2012 10:42 PM

10-4, I'll order them.

Should I order the whole set for front and rear or do you guys know which springs to use? Just trying to save a little money.

Avid only sells their springs in full sets. If you're tight on cash, you'll still see a nice performance increase with Losi big bores and the needed collars/cups.

JEFFs SC10 06-23-2012 04:33 AM

I'm not tight, just frugal LOL. I'll pick them up.

rickybobbyxxx 06-23-2012 08:30 AM

I run yellow fr white rear kyosho big bores, but thats on a big outdoor track

phillips 06-26-2012 06:21 PM

Has anyone tried kyosho BB's on a b44.1?

I have them on my 2wd and won't go back to the v2's

I'll be running kyosho springs for the first time on Sunday , my 44. 1 was dialed using AE green front and rear on a hard packed med/ high grip large outdoor track , I'm starting with the kyosho yellow front and white rear
Will let you know how it goes.

Cheers

vw addict 06-26-2012 06:54 PM

Hey I'm changing my B4.1 springs to Losi 22's, looking to do the same on the B44.1. What springs are working good on the 4wd?

blown sv 06-26-2012 07:31 PM

Well I know caverleiri and mayfield use kyosho and yellow or orange front and white rear , so if that's good enough for them it's good enough for everyone of us ,
I spoke to Ryan caverleiri over face book and he said the yellow front and white rear is close to AE silver and green kit setup.

For the B44.1, I would either use green or blue losi front 22 springs. For the rear white or yellow rear 22 springs work good.

You are saying yellow and white Kyosho springs correct? Is there any advantage to getting the Kyosho springs over the Losi's? I figure if I get close to the same spring rate I am good enough for my driving. :ha:

blown sv 06-27-2012 03:42 AM

Yes kyosho , apparently they are the beez knees only problem is is they are pricy , unless you buy them directly from Japan and they are about $9 a pair.

I'm using blue front, yellow rear. The only thing is I have not decided on the ballast weight between the lipos. I installed a new one and it seems a little rear end heavy, and then I remembered Maifield gave me a ballast weight a while back that was shaved down a bit. I will try that and see if it improves handling. I started with white rear springs with no weight and it seemed too soft. There was not enough dampening on a medium sized outdoor track. I went to yellow in the rear but need to find the right balance with the added ballast weight.

So depending on the track, it will be blue front/yellow rear, or green front, yellow rear.

For losi springs if you get blue/green front and yellow/white rear you're covered.

The weight maifield gave ya is shaved bc the reedy saddle Pack is super heavy. The standard ballast out of the package is perfect for the prion LIPO though.

I have since went to coaches suggestion of just using 1/2 oz between the cells and a softer rear spring. I'm loving it.

Ah Ha! I am using the Reedy pack and had the full weight in there. So your saying white springs with a 1/2 ounce is all you need? What piston/oil combo are you using? Indoor or outdoor track? I am on my way over to an indoor track to play with some set ups. I'll see how it goes....

916bdogg 06-27-2012 05:34 PM

BB springs and BMax Bottoms and GHEA COLLARS GOING ON THE B44 .. JConcepts Summer Nationals coming soon .

aeRayls 06-27-2012 05:39 PM

Use the standard 30wt with 1's in rear with the avid whites and only a 1/2oz.

Check wenger's top gun setup on petitrc

I'd flip your batteries around so your wires from your ESC to the saddle packs are as short as possible.

And make sure there is no side to side wiggle play at all on both front/rear gearbox outdrives or you're going to be stripping gears before long.

Good luck!

zipperfoot 06-28-2012 09:03 PM

Losi big bore springs are fantastic on the 44.1. Really happy. I ran on a 17 second indoor track. Blue front, #2 piston 35wt losi oil, yellow rear, 32.5 losi oil #1 piston, with full ballast weight and a reedy pack. Very controllable, soaked up the landings with no bounce or slap, and most importantly, no breakage of arms or front shock shafts. Took some hard landings with the nose down, no problem.

Thats how i run my wires to the battery. Keeps them clear of the center shaft.

When i switched to a shorty pack in my b4.1 i shortened the wires by 1 1/2 inches and noticed no difference in power or run times.

Still diggin my avid springs, tons of grip...
