Questions?? Help with arm and block I.D.

Normally I'm pretty good with this but, I have so many bits from 20+ yrs ago that I have no clue why I have them or where they came from.
#1 is an RPM part
#4 is a Right front hub, most likely some kind of truck.

No one answered you?

#1 - Looks like Andy's for Yokomo - this one is my best guess
#2 - Losi Pro SE swept front arm
#3 - Associated B2 front arms
#4 - Losi LXT carrier

#3 is definetly associated but it looks more like a truck a arm than a buggy one.

I have a few B2's, I'm sure - and this helps too

They seem to be pretty similar. I put gt arms on my old rc10 buggy in place of the short ones but I didn't know the b2 used long arms.

Those are wider than the B2 arms as well.

I see what you mean. I might could use b2 arms on my buggy that has the gt arms on it. I had to do a lot of shimming to get them to fit. I think I'll get a set and see how they work. Probably have to look for pins too. I have a bunch of pins but they're all for the old tub rc10 or the gt. Cool... something to work on.

The B2 arms are longer than the CE/Worlds tub car, which are longer than the original swept front arms. RPM made a set just longer than the CE arms, using a truck nose & bulkhead but kept the buggy width (called 91 Worlds RPM arms) - hard to find and expensive when you do (unless you stumble upon them). There are a few Shapeways stores selling different length arms designed for the stock buggy bulkhead units or narrow truck bulkheads.
