Sadly the sole solution I've found is to just stop driving it. Couple the peg leg open diff and tires that don't work on asphalt or astroturf, with junk ball cups and I've yet to drive this for 10 minutes before it's broken and missing parts. I've yet to even give this full throttle yet, which is extremely disappointing. If you find a solution, like RPM end links, I'd give them a try, but if there aren't any solutions soon then I'll just be selling mine.

Mini B and Mini T 2.0 are the same wheels out back. the T just uses the Mini B wheels at all 4 corners.

If you debond the front tires of the Mini JRX2 they will fit on the Mini B's front wheels. The wheel's width and diameter are the same the different is the Mini JRX2 uses the old style bearing in the wheels design while the Mini B uses a hex with bearings being on the car itself.

I've just done the reverse. Put the fronts made for a Mini B onto a Mini JRX2 wheel.

What servo horn are you using and where did you find it? I have a similar AGFRC servo that didn't come with a horn and my local hobby shop is so ignorant that 3 people, who work there, didn't even know that there is more than 1 size made!
I was able to force the stock servo saver onto it, since I bought the pro roller I had to buy this separately, but it's rather horrible.

Thanks

Actually actually unless you can find a longer ball stud you won't be able to drill it and use a nut on the other side. You're in the same boat I'm in, looking like I will have to put the odd 2.5 mm tap through the reefs aluminum horn I have. I had to buy the 2.5 mm taps (came in a set of two so I can break one, ha) I don't think I have the exact drill recommended to use before tapping so I'll just have to find the closest one to it. Then Loctite the stud into the horn. If anyone knows where I can get the same size ball stud with a longer thread please share
