NO drag break.

I find myself dialing out more and more break as well, allowing the car to turn while breaking if needed. Too much break and it will push..= bad

my $.02

Most have so much brake they blow the gears out. I have mine set where the wheels still roll but slow the car down. Its takes a bit to dial that in.
It doesn't hurt to have a good 2x finger in the turns coming in and out to...

Mine slows down real fast but wont quite lock the tire up. And to mention drag brake means more heat as well.

I haven't wuite figured out the best way to drive mine yet. I am more of an aggressive driver, lots of throttle and diving as far into the corners as possible with lots of brakes used. I'm not sure that's the fastest way, I'm sure smoother would be better but I get so much enjoyment out of pushing it to the limit. I drive my 1/8 e-buggies and SCTE the same way.

How's this for clean?

Why did you bend your motor wires like that instead of just running them like every other pic of "clean" installs on this thread ?

Associated, Pro-Line, JConcepts, and DE Racing all make 4wd front wheels for the B44. They are NOT 12mm... more about 9.5mm

With very little searching on your own, you would have had your answer 22 minutes ago (your last post). Have some patience if you're going to be lazy

Ok that makes sense if you were uncertain

All B44 front wheels have been the same... Original, .1 , and .2 now.
