Anyone know the difference between the B5R and B5M rear arms?

The B5R arms, when the left is mounted to the B5M on the right and vice versa, have a bit more forward sweep giving some more rear traction.

Interesting.. Thank you for your response.

Other than the sweep, is the geometry of the shock positions and length of the arms the same?

Weird. They seemed to be the same length on my cars. And the fact that the shocks mount up with no trouble tells me they are at least similar. Also the factory lite comes with rear motor arms you mount backwards.

Arm length is the same and bottom shock position is negligible.

Thanks for your help. I am currently running the B5R outdoors right now and I was curious if this could possibly make a difference on it. Their isn't much action in the rear-motor thread which is why I brought the question in here. Thanks again.

Running the RM arms on the MM car gives more sweep moving the weight back, which is why we all run them. To put the MM arms on the RM car would basically do the opposite. Moving the weight of the motor forward taking away rear traction on a lower bite out door track. I personally wouldn't do it. But I could be wrong.

What exactly are you looking for? Other than an extremely high ball stud mount you can get the same link locations on the stock plastic hubs.

Thanks for the reply. I am actually looking for the machined bushings and spacers that are installed in the bottom of the shock bodies(hat bushings and shock spacer).

Thanks rcbuddha for your reply as well

I bought them I would just like to try them I'm not going to be racing the car I am just going to practice with it when I'm not racing my 8th scale cars nor am I going to bash it. I like to drive 2wd because its great practice I have the regular hubs but id like to try aluminum hubs that I have and I am just looking for a basic starting point for it for a outdoor hard pack but dusty track. Any help will be appreciated

Can I assume that the Lite kit comes with the appropriate arms/towers, etc so you don't have to buy and swap parts from the B5 kit like we were initially doing with the B5M?
