Just bought a novak 17.5 ballistic pro for my b4 and was wondering what I should gear it to. I run it on clay, if that helps. Dont want my stuff to overheat so nothing to high.

With the RE hubs I have never used the black ballstuds. At the very least I would use an ae silver stud. With all my RE hubs I use lunsford titanium studs .250 length I believe, and blue loctite. To keep original stud heighth you must use 1 .030 washer under the stud. The washer will add strength too.

Speaking for meself and Trcr, we have not really seen any problems with the B-4 rims at all....

Who ever is having problems must be hitting rocks, ect on hard landings ...

Tip for Racer Edge hub users :

Use Stainless steel ball studs with metal washers for best strength

Sorry for my ignorance, but if I go with a lungsford ball studs are they all the same thread size and ball size? Or will I need new ball cups as well? Thanks

hey guys,

I remember you all talking about the new plastic in the replacement parts.
I have the steering rack #9659 for the T4/B4/Sc10, It is graphite & I tried getting another one from my LHS just for a spare.

The problem is when I was looking at the package...it looked like a very black plastic instead of the graphite gray look that Im after. Both packages were Identical in #'s & labeling, there wasnt anything to differ the two from the labeling itself.
The lhs shop said they just got them in last week. Is this the new plastic you were talking about? And if so how can I get just the graphite one? I really dont want to go aluminum on this part.

That is what Im wondering? The servo saver part where the V is... I had the plastic version when I frist got my truck & it wollowed out after a few weeks of racing the went to the graphite & its lasting like 6 months.
I also remember the label use to say graphite on it.

a few of us at the track here have been having a few issues with the black (plastic) steering pieces like the servo saver pieces, they just seemed to break a bit easier.

One kinda big triple but I usually just double/single it. More consistant that way.
