Are you referring to the wheel/tire or just the wheel itself? The Mini-B rear tires are not the same as the Mini-T tires unless there has been a recent change,

My Mini-T tires are slightly wider and have more sidewall than my Mini-B rear tires, however the wheels are the same.

So, I thought I was done with the hobby when my kids lost interest, but I didn't even make it six months. I really miss tinkering and driving, so I'm jumping back in. I sold off all of my cars a few months ago, so I get to start over (actually kind of excited about that). I still have a bunch of electronics and batteries for the minis, so I'm going to pick up a pro roller since they're on sale right now for pre-Black Friday sales. Only buying one, b/c they might be even cheaper on Black Friday/ Cyber Monday.

Has anyone tried the RPM front bumper for the mini-b/t? Sad to see that T-Bone Racing shut down, but I usually had good experiences with RPM parts with my 1/10 scale stuff.

I was checking out Boki Racing and they have a Mini LST Crowd Pleazer body. Mini LST is roughly the same wheelbase as the B, has anyone purchased from Boki or used this body on their Mini B?

Bought the hot racing shocks for my mini b to try, has anyone used these before? I have these and the Losi aluminum shocks to do some testing at the track. Put the Losi ball end and spring cup on the HR shocks and had to run very thick oil to get the proper dampening, due to the weird piston, and threadlocked the bottom cap.. My only dislike so far is mounting the shock to the tower, the ball is too small and too much play. How have people mounted these?

I have a couple of Mini-B's that I don't use much and may be pulling the trigger on a Hackfab Omni chassis for a rally build I'd like to do very soon. The one I'm going to use for the rally car currently has a Hobbywing 7800KV motor and it's plenty fast, but I am strongly considering a 5200KV with the plan of running 3 cell. I'm not looking to do speed runs. I plan to gear down for longer run times and cooler motor temps.

Is anyone using this setup geared down or in a Hackfab chassis and if so is it moderately controllable?

Just pulled the trigger on the Hackfab Omni chassis, stiffening plates, and a Protoform Europa body. I'm turning the B into a rally car. I have a Losi controller and esc/receiver available if anyone is looking for one.

Received the Hackfab Omni chassis and converted the B on Saturday. Still waiting for a couple of parts and hope to order a set of JConcepts Scorpios and servo today, so I haven't ran it yet and can't comment on performance, but I have a feeling the Rally setup is going to be a lot more fun and useful than a B or T. The fit and finish of the Hackfab parts is top notch, I highly recommend. The Europa body due to it's width in my opinion is the perfect body for what I'm doing. I will try and post a couple pics later this week.

I plan on going with a 5200KV 3 cell setup once I put MIP CVD's and Slipper on it, I want to be in the high 30's - low 40's. Really hoping the chassis can handle the power and still be controllable. As of now it's super light. I also like the idea of the Hot Racing Spindles and Rear Hubs due to the bigger bearings and the weight they will add, but I am positive I read the Hubs don't work with the MIP CVD's, can anyone confirm this?

Current set up is battery behind the servo and esc behind the battery. Plan to mount the receiver in between the ESC and waterfall mount. Using RPM a-arms. I wanted the rear shocks on the outside of the tower while retaining the B towers, they are a tad lower/narrower than the T's. I'm using T rear arms, which RPM states is not possible, but it is if you flip the tower, use the wing mount screw in place of the Losi standoff, and mount the shock so that the spacer is on the inside instead of the outside. The shock angle is very close if not exactly the same as stock. For now I'm using T springs. Ride height is currently at 11mm with BK Bars, but that may increase once the Scorpios are mounted.

How did the two sets of shocks compare?

Just a quick update on my Rally conversion. It's built and came out exactly as I hoped, but I've lost a bit of motivation due to all the rain, which is why I haven't posted a photo or driven it yet. Only thing left to do is widen the wheel openings and paint it. I will post a photo of it unpainted so that everyone can see how well the body fits the Omni chassis. Ride height is currently 14mm. I'm using B rear springs in the front and T rear springs in the rear. Considering switching to HR shocks and springs, but there isn't much info out there regarding them and like @alternatepoc I'd like some more info before I spend the money on them. Does anyone know if HR springs have different rates than the Losi springs? Was hoping to use an XTeam 2430 5300KV motor, but it appears that it's no longer available.
