Yeah I was thinking about the ackerman changes needed with the change to trailing or inline. I am having rubbing issues with the T5M which is running 2, my B5M and SC5M are both at 4. I do plan on switching both to 2 because I like how aggressive the T5M is. I know the SC5 will be fine, I really hope the buggy doesnt have rubbing issues. Or maybe I will try switching everything to 3.

Uht.. not sure if racer is serious or joking here. I don't think he realized you were pointing towards your avatar, and not at yourself.

Man today was one of those days where everything broke. Replaced a snapped rear ball stud mount, snapped rear hub, had to remove and take apart the differential, broken wing, etc. literally every time the car touched the track something broke.

Regardless, I had way too much fun.

Is there any parts that break often I should stock up on? I've already snapped a front bulkhead, rear hub, rear ball stud mount, and one of the rear ball studs sheared off prior to that as well. Are these common problems?

The rear ball stud mount is a weak point and should be upgraded to aluminum. All your other issues aren't common as far as I know. Maybe add an aluminum front hinge pin brace to help with the bulkhead.

Ok cool. I had an aluminum ball stud mount to begin within until the stud sheared off. The only replacement I could get was a plastic one which just snapped. Having horrible luck here.

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

slashed, are you running mod or stock? I honestly haven't seen a single B5 break in any way, shape or form since they were released. I'm even still running the original plastic rear camber mount. I'm definitely not trying to be a jerk but maybe turning the power down and making consistent laps without ANY crashing is your best bet. Unless you are just truly getting unlucky....that's a different story.

I was thinking the same thing. My B5 has been doing great since I got it with no issues. I can see breaking if your hard on it or running mod and tagging pipes or walls a lot.

Need some advise guys. I have a B5M Lite running Stock and I'm loving it but now I'm thinking of getting another B5M to run mod. Do you guys think its cost effective to get a complete kit or buy parts?

Like buy it in parts? That's going to set you back like $4-500 in parts. Buy the kit.
