Looks great Joey!
You've got to ditch those bushings in your steering though :shock:

The bushings are polished as well as the plastic inserts...pretty darn amazing with a little elbow grease and fiddling will do with bushings.

Loving everything about this build!
Isn't the front "too wide" to be legal with the b4.2 caster blocks on the quadra arms?

Most likely too wide bacause arms were designed for RC10 caster blocks with #6220 axles.

I'll measure, if it is too wide, it may only be off by a couple mm. I have narrower hexes to use if I need to.

Its a move toward newer style suspensions where the front and rear arms have the same hinge points both inner and outer. Niki may be able to explain what it does better, but basically, its a long arm version of the rc10 :)

RC10T or GT nose plate, bulkhead and nose tubes. NIX Concepts (shapeways or i.materialize) quadra arm set up, narrow front tower (or RPM clone, or RC10T/GT).

Time & a donor car :)

Looks awesome! What would happen if you used a regular RC10 nose instead of the truck? Too wide?

It would be too wide and defeat the whole Quadra base

Please let us know, because I would be very interested in being able to use my B5M's hex front wheels on my quadra car at some point... but it has to be ROAR legal because (at least here) when you beat people with a gold pan they want to look at your car closely; nobody wants to be called a cheater. Now I wish I still had a b4 so I could just measure it :-)

JasonB, I measure the top of the tires are at 250, the bottom about 253, so just a hair outside ROAR limits.
