I have the T4.1 and I'm getting LOTS of over steer, I'm thinking of because it has gear diffs, that I can fill it up with some silicone diff oil to help settle the rear end. What would be a good starting number to do this? I have 5k 3k 2k diff oil but its xray diff oil maybe one of these can work.

Does Associated make this part? I sure could use a part # to reference for a future purchase. Any links would be appreciated.

sorry I dont have a part# got mine from a main it comes standard on the factory team version and the plastic one breaks way too easily its only a $10 piece holds the pins in the front and protects the bulkhead a little better, not sure why anyone would consider this a waste of money but anyway good luck with your new buggy Im sure you will be happy.

9665
FT Hinge Pin Brace, with hinge pins
here it is it comes standard on the factory team version so it is an associated part after you break 2 of the plastic ones it has already paid for itself

Thanks man, you're a great help! Bookmarked the page and I'll order the part from Tower next week along with some extra bulkheads.

Rather than try to say one part is better than the other ..

Metal is stronger and will be more durable , but is heavier & stiffer so you get a little less steering....

Most would not be able to notice the difference , experience drivers can however ....

If you are a beginner using the metal makes a stronger car
and thats a good benefit.

Where for the experience racer more steering from using the plastic would be the benefit ....

What are you hitting that you are breaking the front bulkhead/hingepin mount?

I've raced my b4 off and on since it first came out and i think in those 5-7 years i've maybe broken 2.

I've snagged a pipe once or twice.

+2 for non Aluminum.

well I am new to buggy bought the b4.1 and only run it on an indoor track everytime I come nose down hard on one wheel ( off a pretty big triple ) I break the plastic pin holder and the bulkhead. I switched to aluminum pin carrier 2 weeks ago and haven't broke one since. I'm sure when I become a better driver I would be o.k. with the plastic but for now the aluminum is working for me and all the other b4.1 new buggy drivers at the track. I broke 3 pin carriers and 3 bulkheads the problem is that the pin carrier comes with the rear pin carrier also so its like 7 bucks and now I have 3 replacement rear carriers. The track sold like 20 of these buggies and the pin carrier/bulkhead is by far the most popular piece being broken. I dont claim to be an expert but this is my experience.
