Kit setup is pin-style. I use the PL hex conversion in the rear in combination with some 2.5 mm spacers (Kyosho LA-253). Bearings in the front are inside the wheels (5 mm axles; AE conversion available).

did anyone from the states get a bmax2 kit from driftspeed.com? if you did, did you get replacement outdrives for the defective units?

if anyone has talked to katsumi successfully please let me know.

Got my kit today. Can't wait to build and run it! Been a while now since I've run a rear engined car

I can't speak highly enough of the service from RC-Champ in Japan. The key is to have all the part numbers and simply drop them an email.

Prices are VERY good too. Paid US$280 for the kit. Shipping is a little high, but they use EMS, which is super fast! Three working days from Japan to Australia.

Also managed to score the World Spec Conversion for my B-Max 4. Last one they had in stock and it's discontinued

Cheers,
Scott

Regarding the updated diff drive cups for the Bmax2 with the harder material, Is it part # B2-501 or does it have a new number? How am I able to make sure they are the "new" ones?

Parts number is the same. Anodising on the new ones seems to be slightly darker and does not rub off that easily.

What does the B-Max 2 typically weight out of the box? I've not had chance to get it on the scales and just want to know what to expect.

Do you guys have to add weight to get it to minimum?

it's about 1020grams/36ounces with a servo installed, with wheels and tires, body and wing. it depends where you're racing, and what type of racing you're doing (stock or modified).

Will try and get mine on the scales tonight.

has anyone tried hex conversion for the front wheels?

Wondering if the parts needed for the b4 front hex conversion will work?

thanks

Would be interesting to know! I think it might work, but change the car's steering characteristics...
