Yup just the beginning sadly as well LOL if I'm going to attempt to be competitive I have to get serious.. a diet is in order - SO

Ordering -


Ballistic red wire low resistance stator ($25 shipped NIP on eBay! ($50 retail)
Savox 1252MG low profile servo (61g Airtronics I have now vs 44.5g Savox)
Orange RX receiver
MIP puck drive CVD's (was going to buy new lightweight stuff anyway and this was $10 more + reduces parasitic loss by 50% alone)
MIP aluminum main gear shaft
V2 clutch vented discs
Lunsford titanium hinge pins
JConepts CF front shock tower
JConcepts silent speed 69t/75t spurs (which I have some dirty tricks in mind for)
AE TiNi coated ball studs (less friction)
AE Interceptor body - more aerodynamic than stock body
AE B2/B3 screw sets (3 aluminum screws sets to replace steel screws)
AE 12mm big bore spring cups (3 sets of 4 different depths, and lighter than the one's I have)
Few factory team carbon fiber spare parts
Travel bag/pit mat/ DT pit stand (wanted one for awhile LOL)

And I will have another team edition B4.1 buggy to build and sell to recoupe money!

I have not LOL still a long way to go with it.. and kinda getting cold feet about dumping $500 into it LOL when I already have over that in it.. then again I have another B4 runner to boot so I suppose that takes a little off..

Only bough a carbon fiber front shock tower for it so far as I'm putting a very low budget crawler together for my 5yo nephew coming over in 1 week ahaha - probably going to spend $100 a check on this B4 til it's time to buy the Tekin spec 17.5 combo ($209)..
