As long as you use the correct size losi pistons, you will not need to drill them.

Standard set up is to run #2 w/30wt f/r. I've started running the #55 w35 f/r. This offeres a little bit more softer static car, but due to having more holes, yet smaller holes, you will retain the pack that is needed for larger jumps.

I ran the Losi 55's in the rear today and they worked well, seemed better in the rhythm section jumps. The Losi pistons seemed a little larger diameter also but I did not measure them. How do the blanks measure up? Are they a new mold?

Default 1/2 degree hubs

The 2wd is pretty much done. The truck is a 'work in progress'. But is very close. Either of these should be very close for most track conditions.

I forgot to put the truck pistons, front is 3-hole #57 and rear is 3 hole #55.

So have you found that the 1/2 degree hubs are unnecessary for both the b4 and T4? What advantage have you found by not using them? I have them on both and my SC10 (Scott's Setup) and they seem to work for more forward traction. But I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Are they slower or make it harder entering or exiting corners?

What would a good gearing be for a 10.5 in a B4?

Keep the .5 on your Sc-10 , use the standard hub on the bug & truck.

The .5 hub performs great , its just that at TRCR the traction is so good you don't need to use....
Car will carry more corner speed with the standard hubs ...

I ended up with the same oil and piston after some testing this weekend.

So you are saying use the #55 piston and 35w on front and rear? What type of track? And what gearing would you use at WCRC and Peg with a 17.5 novak? Thanks

Yes 55s all around with 35w front and rear at peg.

I havent ran at west coast yet but I would run the same set up there and see what happens. I think West Coast would be the same just tires would be different with small adjustments.

With a Novak I would start at 69/33 and see how the temps are.
