WCRC: I've been running JC Gold Barcodes F & R with AKA CC foams, and been doing well in the class on club racing. I know most will say PL Suburbs rear, but I think either are fine to be honest.

I hate PL foams and refuse to use them any longer; they just don't last IMO.

Oh consider a 7.5 motor; you can always add a little dynamic timing off your ESC for the straights if really needed. It's really not good to dial down EPA on a motor too much... you reduce top end a lot.

Finally got my kit together. I think it came out pretty well.

Default B44.2 wheels

This might be a dumb question but does AE make a yellow hex wheel for the 44.2? Rears are 9696, but front I just can't seem to find. Are the front rims wider then the b4.1 wheels or the same with a wider tire?

AE made no 12mm hex for the B44.2 front. Still the oldschool small hex.
Proline made some I think...

All B44, B44.1 and B44.2 front rims are interchangeable

You could even use Losi XX4 / XXX4 front rims. I still do, and Losi front rims came standard in the JC BJ4 kits.

Exactly this. The front hexes have never been 12mm like rear are now... "standard" front 4wd is ~9.5mm hex.

RPM ball cups I know, swaybays included? And does anyone use aka rebars on there 4x4? Would like too try them.

Savox 1257 ok or get the 1258?

Thanks guys
1257 is what you want. The speed is more important than the extra torque. 1257 is plenty of torque

I read somewhere that people are using Losi washers instead of the supplied o-rings for the shocks bleeder screws. Can someone give me a part number please?

Thank you!

Use the Losi brass washers with the Associated screws.

Edit - if A Main are not expecting it to be in stock until May 5th, I suggest you shop around to see if anyone else has it in stock

Here is a quick vid on how I do my shocks. I have played with shocks so much its not even believable. NOTE if you clean the bleeder screw pocket out it will seal great with the rubber oring. In short, try to keep the oring dry at all times. Although you will save on Q tips with the losi washers, LOL

Don't blink... Not recommended for whiskey throttle drivers. I have to say with this kit my 6.5 has been collecting dust.
The slipper will take any thing you can throw at it.
I have my timing on the can set at 30 degrees with a 5.5. It will soften up the bottom about perfect.
