Just make sure you thread lock those set screws in those front universals. Better yet, thread lock them, AND groove the pins so that even if the screw somehow comes loose, the pin still wont be able to slide out.

Ok thanks for that, Might have to try a spool oneday, but id rather a front one way as i like to coast into corners, just suits the way i drive.

But its up to the indivdual to decide what they wont to use, it never hurts to try.

Depends on the track, but indoors on carpet (stock 27t) I have found blue spings on the front and yellow on the rear good,35wt front, 30 rear, ride height 5.5mm all round, 3 hole pistons (trf shocks), 3 degree rear toe in and 1 degree toe out on the front.

Gives a very stable, yet drivable feel to it. Gets the tyres and suspension working, rather than just relying on the tyres too much

As for droop I am not running any on the rear, cant remember on the front but its very little/none at all if my memory serves me right

can i safely say this ver. 2 is more flex than ver. 1 since they reduce the thickness.

i was suprisd with the flex actualy because it is very minamil becuase they have an enlarged motor mount and the shaping of the deck and the cut outs in the bottom deck makes the flex as small as possible for the thickness.

It will fit fine, It is what I use. I added some weights under the battery to get the weight up for TCS racing. It will also help the battery sit level since there will be a bit of a gap from the bottom of the chassis from the ends of the battery holes that go up some (the battery will sit on top of the higher parts on the sides. I dont see any reason it will not fit the B4 since it is prob the same size as any normal battery.
