Update on my new body: It's a new old one... Am I expecting too much when I order a B-Max4II body at the official distributor's shop and want to receive a B-Max4II body, not a B-Max4 body?! As I had it shipped directly to my painter, it is too late now to return it, of course. The fact that the paint job is not the one I had ordered is yet another story...

Edit: My son absolutely likes the new old body, so we swapped. I'll post a picture of the B-Max4 duo as soon as the body is finished!

Just finished my B-max4 II Worlds Edition.

As usual a delight to build.

Built it with Hard chassis and top deck. Some old school coloured wheels too.....

Looks superb! Masami would be proud!

You should send him a picture of it to his Facebook account

Yeah I chatted to him at F2's and F345's. He had his going well.

Looking forward to outdoor stuff again. Might give it a blast at Chadderton next month.

The latest version, the 'WN' comes with two chassis/top decks. One normal and one hard. The hard is designed for high grip. Carpet and astro etc.

I purchased them separately and fitted them to try.

Nice wheels! I am tempted to put some self-made self-adhesive red wheel discs on mine, maybe with the old school Yokomo markings...

My new 'bargain' Bmax4

I already had a Bmax and really liked how it drove, so couldn't resist another with all the nice bits on it...

Guys.

Anyone point me to the best place to buy diff and thrust ceramic balls for the B-Max4 ?

The ones in the kit are dead after just 2 runs - obviously steel nonsense !

Also sizes - anyone know for sure the sizes of the balls

Ta.

Andy
