I think one comes in the box, along with turnbuckles.

only driven the mid b5 for 1/2 pack, think both are similar , the Ae jumps & lands better, has a plusher ride.

Think the B5 starts out of box way better then the Centro.

Be lying to yeah if I said the Centro is a turd, both are great rides and anyone can win with either ..

From Kody on Facebook regarding the shock shafts

"I would like to post this to clear the confusion. The old and new shock shafts are the same size. Any difference in measurement is just a variation in the tolerance. The old ones are coated for very long life and the new ones are not. Lots of our team drivers prefer the new ones because they have less drag against the o-ring."

I rarely ever get a lemon doing this sort of filtering. I am very sure that if you post your pics and it looks sloppy, people will take you less seriously. First impressions and all.
Thankyou Leigh.... It doesnt take that long to clean your wires up and for that matter servo tape electronics in the car straight. So many times a sloppy car leads to a sloppy driver. And I could care less about your car but I wouldnt take advice from you because of it. Maybe you can learn from it. But I doubt it.... Time isnt even the issue

built my B5m kit last night but had on problem....One of the blue adjustable shock collars would not screw onto any of the shocks. Seems there is a problem with the threading on the collar as all the other collars screw onto the shock bodies just fine.

I faxed a request in to AE. Hope they can send me one ASAP.....I want to race! Or does anyone know where to buy them?

Shock collars should be unchanged from the B4.2.

try to thread one of the "good" ones onto the shock body with the issue. I could be the threads on the body. I have always found the AE collars to be easy to cross thread because the threads are so fine and small. So I always take my time with them. Also, make sure the oring is fully seated inside the collar.

Got to drive a friends B5M right after I finished up racing my B5R this weekend. B5M is definitely faster in the turns, whereas the B5R is faster in straight lines, and does not become as upset over the ruts that have developed at LRH. Both are excellent cars, and will be winners, just depends on your track, high bite clay with a lot of 180 degree turns, and chicanes, B5M, looser bumpier conditions B5R.
