the b4 has shorter arms, i would suggest getting the rpm front arms, they are for the gt2 but they will work when you get the hinge pins that are for the gt2. On the label it says which ones to get. They never break, and if you break them, you can send them in to get brand new ones for free.

You dont.... You just run 3 degrees of rear toe, and look to other spots for setup change.,

Both B4 and T4 comes with 3 degree of rear toe, and Associated doesn't offer any option parts to change that. You basically have 2 options if you want to change the rear toe. One is to get a Rayspeed or Yokomo rear hub with extra toe in, or get a custom made anti squat block with extra toe in.

I don't think you can purchase Rayspeed or Yokomo rear hub because no one seems to carry them anymore. So, the only readily available option is to get a custom made anti squat block with extra toe in. With this option, you may need to move the rear hub back to compensate for the shorter wheelbase. I would suggest moving the rear hub back 1 mm for every 0.5 degree of additional toe in at the anti squat bar.

Hey guys you say if I get the arms for the GT2 and change the hinge pins to the ones for the GT2. Would the new hinge pins be compatible with everything else i.e. would they be the same diameter or would this cause other changes? Thanks

The diffrents in the hinge pins is there shorter. When you get the RPM front arms you have to get the bulk head also. That with the hinge pins its a drop in afair. Very durable !!

Just to make sure I understand. You need to buy the Hing pins for the GT2 and yoiu also need to buy the bulk head for the GT2 if you are going to use the RPM front A arms. Thanks for the info please let me know if this is correct.

Almost got it.
RPM has a kit that has the arms and bulkhead. Then just some new pins and your good.

To check for front toe it is easiest to put the car on it's side standing on 1 front and 1 rear tire. you can also measure the distance between the inside of the front tires. the differance in mm. is very close to degres.
