I'm on the fence about selling my b4.2 and getting one. It's the first associated I've own but all the pro guys at my track run tlr so I'm sure I can bounce a ton of questions off of them. Decisions decisions.

Nice, damn quick from first mention to actual release. Even if this has been in the works for six months, the release is so close to the announcement of the car, the buzz is really big! Very smooth.

do you have any fast guys running 17.5? Most of the setups are mod and I am curious to see if they lighten anything etc. The mod 22 guys I know add a bit of weight to get around 1700 grams

It should be soon, within a week I believe.

I run mod and don't add any weight, around 1600g. I am sure we'll have some fast stock guys run the car, but they haven't yet since they won't have the cars until this weekend or next week.

so in your 2.0 your not running any brass weights? not even in the kick plate? 1600 is still pretty heavy for 17.5. I dunno, we will see.

Hey Frank,

What is the purpose of the side weights that Dakotah ran at the nats?

Would these be better in low traction conditions? Adding more roll

Thanks Kev

I think the side weights help to propagate a more defined moment of inertia for the buggy. All while keeping the center mass as such, without increasing bias front or rear with the optional brass TLR weights out front or in the rear of the vehicle. Long story short, it helps promote a quicker (and more 'linear') rotation of the buggy..

Just my take on those! Frank, Casper, or Ryan might have to chime in to elaborate and/or confirm though.. lol

It helps to increase the overall weight of the buggy without greatly altering the weight bias. It increases the weight by roughly 1/2 the difference between a shorty LiPo and a regular size one. In our testing, a heavier car slows the reactions of the car, smooths it out and makes it easier to drive, thus why Dakotah preferred it on the high grip of the Nats track. I also added these to my car at Surf City when the grip car up really high and went to slicks.

Thanks for the explanation, Frank!! Helps a bunch!!!
