Just a bit more fitting with the gearbox and some playing around with the rear ball cups to make the camber adjustment in the right range and she will be complete.

I finally found the TRF rear wing mounts, I had to put in a saved search on ebay to find them.

This is what I chose for my running gear. The BL motor I think is same spec as the LC racing motor, so I think it might be a good choice? Any battery recommendations? I see some people used the hardcase IP batteries, however they are hard to find. I might use the ones from my RC18B.

Once I make a bit more progress, I will get some better photos
LC racing uses a 28mm can motor, that's 24.

Surpass is bringing out a 380 (28mm can) sensored range shortly, maybe look into that.

I saw that, I am curious about it. What is a good ESC for it with a small footprint?

SkyRC TS50 or Hobbywing Justock

Anyone got a link to details of the 380 sensored motor from Surpass?

I went ahead and purchased the SkyRC TS50. It appears that the SkyRC sec has a smaller footprint which is nice, and 50amps. I will use the hobbywing in another project. I have still yet to order a different motor for the car. I am very interested in the Surpass motor.

Ok, finally put her together, needs to come apart a little bit to adjust a few things, and shim the diff a little to get it just right. I really wish I had another one outhouse rear blocks. Just waiting on my servo, and the LC racing motor to come in the mail and then I can wire it all up. I might shim the wing to have less angle.

What is the method everyone uses to secure the body? It doesn't look like there are really any good spots for that. I will come up with something.

What are the tyres and the turnbuckles? I like those.

When cutting down the B4 bulkhead, a few people started to leave excess material there for velcro, as well as on the side of the posts. Many also put velcro on the side of the lipo as well as on the top of the gearbox - that just about held it in place

The tires are from the LC Racing EMB-1, and the turnbuckles are from Yeah Racing for an Xray T4, the ball cups I used are from JConcepts for B4.1 part number 2181. [URL="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HK8YKX4?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details"]

I wish I can find the GHEA racing bulkhead. How much different is the DR10 bulkheads and steering? it looks similar, but maybe metric now?

Dr10’s are basically b6’s so metric yes. There’s a ghea brass bulkhead with hinge pin brace on eBay right now. B4 parts aren’t too hard to find, well most of them aren’t

FF racing also have a lot of b4 parts
