Just rebuild the thrust when you rebuild the main diff when it gets yuck.

I wet sand both my drive rings and thrust rings with 600, clean and re-lube everything, then throw it back together and break in on the bench and call it good.

Box setup is close, but most people will run different shock oil at least. Next most often changed thing is front piston and spring (gray spring and 3x1.4 piston perhaps), and then after that shock down travel (stroke) is a common adjustment. Some of us run the B hub option in the rear, I personally like it, but the kit A hub works better on some tracks, so it's really not right / wrong, just an option.

Thinner oil most of the time? I have read a lot of people complaining about on power steering. Is that still the case with the lite?

That's just 2wd. With the right setup, it has as much on power steering as any 2wd for sure. I tend to run 32 front 30 rear for oil.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a b5m lite for indoor carpet. its not a big track, but they run open motor, so I was thinking I would run my 17.5 D4 maxxzilla with timing and or boost.
is it worth getting the C and D plates in aluminum or brass?
common setup for carpet, or run box setup with the front spring, piston and oil packages above? Any other suggestions for a carpet setup?

Yep, time for that.

Anybody think they will update the Factory Team kit with the new shocks in them? If Factory guys run them full time would assume the Factory Kit would get them at one point or the next.

They still have not gotten their RTR's into the 5th Gen either.

All of this for conversation, sitting at my computer waiting for an email before I leave .

I dont think amain even carries the old shock bodies any more. You might see a change in the next iteration of the kit. Whatever it is called. I am surprised that have not updated the rtr to the B5 rear motor car yet. It is much more durable than the b4 platform.

Don't know what the track looks like but if you can run any motor get something faster and dial back the speed. Taking away power is a lot easier than trying to get power.

On carpet you are probably looking for a car on the lighter side so i probably wouldn't get brass (especially in the rear). The aluminum arm mounts are for bling more than anything.

For setup, the car isn't gonna be too far off from stock. I'd say to build it stock than change from there. You will probably end up going with a 1.7 or 1.4x3 piston in the rear and changing shock oil by 2.5 or 5.

Hey guys, just got my hands on a lite for stock racing on med-high bite clay, low dust, low-moderately bumpy. I'm running pretty much the box setup right now, and getting a lot of understeer, especially on-power, as mentioned above. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to find the right tire combo as opinions are pretty mixed at the track, but have only found ones that make it worse, as opposed to better. I've also got the Avid front & rear spring kit coming in the mail.
