Do you just wrap the wiring around something like a screwdriver and heat it up to get the coils in the servo wire like that? Looks better than my wiring.

To coil your wires just use a thin screwdriver or hex tool and wrap the wire around the shaft tight. I usually tape it in place and let it sit overnight. The wires inside will hold the form - no heat necessary.

Reverse the battery so it plugs in the back. It will clean up the wiring quite a bit. I also have the red side closest and the wire short, so I cannot switch the polarity on the lipo.

Thank you, the more i thought about it the more it made sense since if i lift the rear of my buggy from the rear bumper and let it settle it doesnt like to sag back down close to ride height and i dont have any binds in the suspension

Hey Kevin, Did you put B44 Rear hubs on your T4? If not, any issues with the bearings going out?

Josh,

Yes I upgraded to the B44 hubs and outer bearing. I blew out the stock rear bearing in 3 weeks, so I got the new parts.

I blew out my rear hub bearing in the main last night. Strangely enough, it was the INNER bearing? I think I overtightened my wheelnuts. Would the B44 hubs larger outer bearing help in this case as well?

Are the B44 rear hubs an upgrade for the T4? Just wandering...
