I've heard of people using Losi pistons in their B4 shocks. There's a thread on that over on www.rc10b4.com. Just look under the "tips" section and you'll see it there.

I'm thinking my brother David might, but I won't be. I've been going through my XX-4 and finding things that the previous owner did wrong. So far, I've found that the rear pivot blocks and hub carriers were installed on the wrong side, and that the rear diff. is installed with the adjustment screw on the wrong side of the car. I'm going to rebuild the shocks, and then I'll race it next week. Any recommendations on what weight oil to use?

I am not sure what to run in the XX-4. You need to talk to Vern Howard. Justin runs a XX-4. In the XXX4 I run 27.5 up front and 30 in the rear.

I am not going to run the 4wd tonight. I need a new 7.5 front block, and they don't have them at TRCR, and I want to bond witht the truck. I think I may be able to get real close to 19 laps with it, if I focus only on the truck.

Hope we get three tonight.

CJ,

I have another one that you can have. I bought the plastic one because I bent my aluminum 7.5, and they didn't have any more. I ordered a new aluminum one, and when it came in, I replaced the plastic piece.

Well, we'll see. I also need some new tires on the rear. I have the tires, just haven't put them together yet.

If there are only two of you, maybe you can each put together my entry fee, and I will "Break" and not run the main......

ritchie,

Well first off I assume you are using Windows XP or possibly windows 2000. In either case you are getting those pop up from a service on your computer. There are a few things you can do. If you have XP it has a built in firewall even though its not all that special it will help until you get something else installed. Go to the help and support and search for firewall. The one firewall that I can think of that would be good for now is Zonealarm. here is the link. http://www.zonelabs.com/store/conten...id=zadb_zadown PM me if you have any questions.
