+1 your looking at 120.00 to 140.00 for just the shocks, VTS, and steering rack. Add in the rear hubs and it gets expensive fast. I would return it.

Would it possible to rename the current B4.1 thread to include the B4.1 and B4.2? Since the cars are so similar and most of what is on the 4.2 is already being discussed it would make keeping up A LOT easier. Seems a little pointless to have a whole new thread for the same chassis with upgrades. My opinion of course.

The b44.2 and b44.1 threads are seperate even though the cars are extremely "similar".

And? I just see it being hard to keep up with information and discussions for two cars that are the same. That would be like breaking the TC3 thread into about six different threads, since there is about that many after market chassis for that car.

I don't own a B44.1 or a B44.2 so I can't comment on the differences between the two cars.

Eh, not quite. We have kept the B4.1 thread through all versions including the WC which has the +8mm chassis. The b44.1 and b44.2 are separated by the +8mm chassis as the major difference.

You guys are right, just building a new kit is fun to do and having a fresh build would be nice, but, I will wait awhile since the b4.1 worlds is kicking a$$ for me now and dont "Have" to get the new one just yet haha

I think the thread "owner" should post a 4.1 Worlds vs 4.2 Team comparison and update the first post with it. I would think the two are nearly identical but ?

I'm in the EXACT same situation. I haven't got anther car to run so ots a tough decision. Does anyone know how long it is until we will be able to have our hands on one of these B4.2's?
