C4.2

Post by DennisM » Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:38 pm

Just wanted to share my (almost) finished C4.2.
I´m not crazy about the fwd cab body´s so I started test fitting normal style bodys and ended up with this.

I've never seen a C4.2 so thanks for posting. Good body choice as I don't care for the look of the newer cab forward stuff myself.

You´re correct, Niki - It´s actually a truck conversion built as a buggy.
I don´t think the buggy version has the CF stiffners running all the way to the front.
It holds the same WB as a Kyosho RB6, so length wise, it should be fine.
I fed the transmission buggy components, I guess there´s no difference in B4 or T4 internals ?

B4/T4 transmissions are identical.
Side rails were option parts for buggy.
You need to find a C0069 rear tower. Fibrelyte can help you out with it. One option is to use JConcepts rear tower but then you need to use JC rear bulkhead also.

Thanks for enlightening me - For a start, I think I´ll just shave a bit of the ears on the truck mount and make new holes, that way I don´t have to worry about doing a new rear body mount.
