Use two or three layers of double sided tape to make up for the angle.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Playing in the mud never gets old.

Talking ESC mount choices.

Yes,I tried that,too. It is most important to seal the base very well so little rocks don't get under the ESC and cause trouble.
You can use tape,silicone or even Shoe-goo to be sure that no crap gets
under there.
There is less chance of failure when you mount the ESC a little farther away from the flying dirt.
OR MUD!

Hey guys, I'm trying to find a thread i saw once that had to do with running buggies indoors and certain tires damaging the carpet. It turned out that several clubs placed a ban on the offending tires. Do you have any idea where I might find this onfo. been digging around, but no luck so far. Thanks!

Default Carpet tires?

NO WAY!
Foamies or rubber tires should be fine.
I tried rubber slicks once.No good.
It wasn't the tires that were causing carpet(Ozite) damage,it was the sedan cars that had the axels poking out too far from the wheels!
Out trucks got blamed for that.
Look at the boards. They are all chewed out at axel height.

What would be bad is tires that you used on the dirt and the little stones that were stuck in the tread would be like running studded snow tires.

Carpet tires only,please.

Actually, we've seen a large degradation in the carpet since we began running off-road about 6 months ago. Been running on carpets for years and haven't seen damage like this, ever. The Pinpoint rears (carpet tires) are such a hard compound, they act like industrial Velcro and rip fibers out as they go.

The on road classes have been pretty easy on it. So, again, I'm looking for clubs that have already made rulings on this.

I still have my old b4 that i put a T4 chassis into and did the tessman mod where you cut down the sides and make it fit the 22 body Really makes ppl scratch their heads when they see a 22 out handle the real 22's

A buddy of mine at our track races a b4.2 and it keeps up with the newer buggies...in fact, he's beaten me several times. At club level I don't think it really matters at all.

I went looking for info on this modification. Couldn't find much. Can you point me towards some pics or an article? Also, what's the difference between the B4 and T4 chassis? They appear almost identical to me. Thanks!

I basically just took the 22 body traced out the shape on the bottom of the chassis and started cutting The key is to find the right glue. I started with ca then when that didn;t work for long I switched to epoxy. the 30 min not the 5 min much stronger.
