    Default B4.1 "eBay" build

    So I was looking around eBay for extra T3 parts, and came across a B4.1 roller that needed a Idler gear for $60! It was pretty beat up, rusty screws, no spur gear, servo mounts, or even a battery hold down. I made a trip to my LHS the day after and picked up parts! Here is the list so far

    -FT screw kit
    -FT motor plate
    -FT servo mounts
    -FT threaded shocks
    -FT turnbuckles
    -Blue a.e springs
    -RPM ballcups
    -Tbone front bumper
    -78T & 84T spurs
    -Idler gear
    -12MM hex conversion F/R
    -proline bulldog body
    -proline Velocity F/R rims
    -proline M3 suburbs 2.0 rear
    -Jconcepts Bar code's front
    -STRC bulkhead, castors and steering knuckles
    - +8mm chassis (soon)

    Dropped $150+ in parts already






    here she is... this is just how i bought it...

    If 3 out of 5 persons "suffer from diarrhea" does that mean 2 out of 5 enjoy it?

    Very nice. As for tires, I would recommend Step pins(very rare) or Calibers. Awsome tires. Ribbed up front.

    Bought a new chassis, shock towers, screw kit, dog bones, and some other stuff..

    My dog ate up my bulldog body so I went with a cheap Jconcepts illusion body for Dave to paint eventually.

    And I figured out I wasted $30 on a set of T4 FT turnbuckles, so bought the correct set... Now just to wait for the rest of my parts, but a system/radio, and get the body painted!

    Bought all new transmission gears, went with the ball diff over the gear diff. Also a Darkside designs chassis "wrap". Darkside designs does all the box art for associated and paints for racers such as Ryan cavalari & maifield, Dakota phend, and others.

    Before rebuilding that diff, there is an excellent video on Youtube on how to build a B4 differential. I followed that video and my differential is as smooth as butter.
