Certainly planning on trying the RB5 WC rear arms etc.

More so if they aid rear traction

They suppose to give you a little more traction that the RB6 rear arms...the question is, do you have to adjust the length of the rear shocks when you make the switch and if so what is the better way...I am guessing by changing the ball ends with the medium ones?

On the arm topic. On the b4.1 I run the rear b44.1 arms because they are softer, giving a little bit better traction at my track. But don't know if its optimal at all tracks tho.

I think I'm tempted to try these at TORCH tomorrow, which will be wet etc.

Mid motor config, damp wet astro

Hara isn't sponsored by either SP or HW. He runs what he wants. Same with the RB6 and running the Durango in 4wd. Runs what he brungs :P
