Hello, is it normal for the B64 stock body to be so large with respect to chassis? That's the one included in a new kit and I would expect the body to "hug" the chassis.
Is it possible that the included JConcepts body is not for B64?



Like this it cannot stay fixed with juts two clips, and for me there's too much of a gap to apply velcro either.
Thanks for any hint or eventually sharing pic of how your body fits

What are the weak points of a B64 directly from the box? What did you upgrade first?
If you have owned other 1/10 4wd cars, how is the B64 compared to them?

Thatís more gap than I remember my stock body but if you apply the velcro and itís fine. The body is flexible.

alloy steering rack is a must, V1 or V2 with the matching steering arms (use a lot of expo with the v2). Alloy rear hubs are nice, too.

Is there something i can buy from the hardware store that can take place of the input shaft retainers? I'm in need of some today but my hobby store is to far to go to for just that product

Are you talking about something to replace the G-clip on the diff input cups? You can use a 3/8" snap ring like this:

looks normal to me. the body does not hug the chassis. I used velcro only on mine no issue. The thickness of the velcro closes the gap as well.

I have been having a time getting my B64D ready. Lost the shaft retainer, then the aft gearbox quick access piece broke off. I went ahead and replaced the diff gears with plastic ones and it is so much quieter. Can't wait to run this again.

Do people run the 5mm clamping hex on the front for any other reason besides it is easier to get on and off? Stock one is 5mm correct?

Just curious if it is actually better for any other reason that I cannot think of.

stock is 4mm. 5mm is for tuning.

Stock is 3.5mm. The wider offset on the front takes away some front traction, makes it easier to drive, and less prone to traction rolling. Never went back to stock after trying the 5mm.

Using TLR 22-4 front wheels with the stock hexes does the same thing (adds 1.5-2mm per side). Works great for those coming from the ancient TLR platform.
