Any help is appreciated
Check your drag brake setting. If you have the right tires and a known good setup then you should not be having push problems with a B4.

I'd be embarassed to say how long I chased an oversteer condition on my stadium truck that was caused by the same setting.

You can just unscrew the ft shock eyelets 2 turns or buy the B-44 shaft , ends up the same droop...

The B44/B4.1 front shafts are .80, and if you run them you need to use about 2 .030 shock limiters to get the correct droop.

Its dependent on what speed control and motor your running, but a good starting point is 81/23, adjust from there while trying to maintain the same total number of teeth so steering really isn't effected.

The front bodies are .89, and have been forever. The shafts changed from .71 to .80.
I run a 23t on my LRP 8.5

Team Associated fans might be into this one....

R/C Evil Empire recently caught up with Team Associaed/J Concepts driver Tanner Denny.

At 15 years old, Tanner is one of the up and coming racers in the off-road circuit. Tanner took time out to talk to us about his racing, goals, practice, and more!

I've been running 23/78 on the buggy and 23/84 on the truck for a real long time and never had a heat issue with either on motors ranging from 10.5 to 6.5. Small tight tracks and large 120'+ straight tracks.
