I'd like to try that new slipper design. I wonder if the towers will bolt onto the b44.1 chassis no problem. I know those big bores need extra clearance.

I think I would much rather have a B44.1 with BB shocks and the V2 slipper or a avid sliopper....than That!!!!! plastic looks cheap and breakable....

Therefore the chassis must be longer and as a result you will probably need new center CVA's, maybe a top deck? The rear one looks different in the photo, front and rear shock towers and oh yeah, big bores! That doesn't sound like a cheap upgrade!
I already bought the big bores for my b44.1 and b4.1. So some carbonfiber and everything else isn't that big of a deal for me.

Lots of minor changes here, for sure. Just a while ago I noticed my B44.1 was the exact same length as my B4.1+8. I thought the length was somehow optimal, then this comes out.

So, I want to see these new front arms. I bet they're compatible with the B44.1, which would be a worthy upgrade off the bat. I wonder if they silently released them since the B44(.1)s have been surviving a lot longer on the track in the last few months...

I have no skills in the fakery department. It's real. Just some are slow to release the info.

Even had inside word locally a new B44 kit was likely on the way. Still procrastinated on re-building my 44.1 to sell. Guess that's what I get :P
