New from Revolution Design Racing Products and made for the Team Associated B5M buggy is an aluminium low-profile wing mount set. The updated design places the wing 7mm lower than the stock wing mount does, which leads to a lower centre of gravity and improved jumping both over small, medium and large jumps. On top of that the high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium part grants a better support for the wing which leads to better aerodynamics and also improved durability in the event of a crash. The wing mount set is available in blue or black anodising.

Wish they had screws and buttons instead of body clips.

Yeah I can't stand the body clips on the wings anymore. I got the JConcepts ones with the threaded screw holes and they come with a set of aluminum buttons too.

Interesting but curious if the fdr works out to something you can fit that big of a pinion on and have enough motor adjustment for proper engagement?

Would allow a smaller pinion , moving motor back , may provide more rear grip .

Lots of great responses, thanks guys, I'm going to work on figuring this out and will definitely report back what changes I make and the improvement... Or I'll come back scratching my head even more... haha...

Going to work on getting Dirt Webs Gold on the front to match my rear and experiment with moving the battery around. Also, more laps will help i'm sure.

I am in the same place you are. I am used to 4wd cars and getting this car is totally different. I am playing with adjustments also to get more front traction. I am running the same tires that some of the fast guys run but I think its not right for my driving style. It's all about doing small adjustments because they make a huge difference on this car. I usually take a note pad with me and write down what adjustment I did and then make notes on how it affected the car good or bad.

When using the Low Friction X-Rings,should the green slime be used with them also?

I do not.

I do however soak them for an hour in shock oil before install.

NOT any longer than 1 hour.

Front traction in a 2wd car is not only the suspension and roll center setup, but also driving style and power input. This is where a 4wd driver can have trouble with 2wd.

some use it and swear by it. The issue I had was the availability of plastic pinions to make up the size difference. I also didn't require the extra weight over the rear axle. 69 felt like a solid medium on the high grip tracks I raced on.

How does the shock oil soaking help? The point is to try to avoid silicone shock oil coming into contact with any silicone based oring.

Kody had explained this better than I ever could. The point was to lube the X ring, and to slightly swell it. This provided a better seal without much change in stichion.

Some will say this is wrong, some do it, some don't.

Ok, if the x ring doesn't provide a good seal than soaking them in oil to cause them to expand makes sense. I would probably try them first without the soak since this would be the lowest amount of stiction, and if they leak try soaking them.
