Default Xfactory carbon chassis

I know this might have been asked before, but has anyone run one on the b5m, because I had handling problems last weekend and I think I have tricked my normal chassis by over cleaning a jump. Used my metal ruler, and thought this might be a better way to go. I have my fox shocks on order after feeling someone's else's car, and felt so smooth. So anyone got any advise

If you are on a lower traction or rough surface, the X-Factory chassis is great. It's what I use as most tracks here are lacking traction. If you are on a higher traction track, pick up a lite chassis for $40 less.

I love mine. I run my carbon B5m on a relatively high bite indoor clay that, that isn't all that bumpy, and the car is fantastic.

I run my car with a full sized pack at 1550 (obviously not pictured)

Are they cheaper than the blue traxxas Xrings? I don't run anything else, and haven't seen anything cheaper.

$3.19 for an 8 pack @ amain.com. Not sure how much an 8 pack of traxxas runs. Only found a 4 pack with a bunch of spacers for $2.39.

The Yokomo's look just like AE's, going to pick up a pack with my next order and compare them

Actually, I believe that is what's causing it, as I am using the 2mm option on the spindles. Not much you can do about it when running 2mm. It moves the wheel forward on the spindles. I just started running the b5ML and using a buddies setup since he's been running it for a while. His wheels rub too.

http://www.redrc.net/2015/08/jconcep...nt-rear-wings/



JConcepts have a range of new front and rear wing for the Team Associated B5 series of buggies available. First up is the 6.5″ Finnisher rear wing for B5M buggies. The wing features a high-attack design with trimable rear gurney options and it offers a radical, edgy design which functions and compliments the Finnisher and Silencer body design. The wing mounts low on the vehicle allowing for a lower centre of gravity which is important in high-grip conditions. The lightweight wing features reinforcement ribs to increase lateral stiffness throughout the centre while the hi-clearance areas built into the side-dams allow for rear tyre movement and growth. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while wing mount dimples are included for a drop-fit onto the popular B5M vehicle.


As for the front wings, these are available narrow and wide versions for both the B5M and B5 kits. Mounted above the front shock tower, the wing mounts in “clean air” and is quite easy to trim, use and test without sacrificing all important track time. The lightweight design features reinforcement ribs to increase lateral stiffness throughout the centre. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while triple wing mount dimples are included for a bolt-on fit to the B5 buggy.

http://www.redrc.net/2015/08/schelle...shock-pistons/



With the release of the latest V2 “screw-on” style Team Associated 3mm shock shaft, Schelle Racing Innovations came up with some new 12mm shock pistons to fine-tune the shock setup. Available in the popular sizes 2×1.6, 2×1.7 and 3×1.4, each size is available in either a traditional flat piston or in a bevel design. The CNC precision machined Delrin pistons offer a precision cut outer diameter with smooth machined outer edge while the tight fit to the shock body reduces wasted blow by around piston edges. Each package contains two pistons, tuning guide, and bevel piston supplement.
