I purchased the 7.0mm clamping rear hexes part # 91610 for my B5M. it seems the rear cvd diameter is too small as the clamping hexes don't even clamp down to hold the cvd. do I need an aftermarket cvd shaft??

SC5M and T5M have larger diameter rear axles. That is probably what you got.

The hexes fit the B5m lite which has HD axles. Those axle have a larger diameter than stock B5m. I made the same mistake.

We can tell its not entirely a photo mule since there's some dirt on the front bumper/arms and tower. While I like my cars relatively clean, the squeaky clean look is disturbing to me. ocd murder type stuff.

Pete you should have just got the B5M Lite like your teammate, Glenn did. It comes with all the clamping hex and lightweight stuff and HD axles. Less things to worry about, and you can add weight where you want to instead.

I had the TLR wings which where pretty thick and they held way beyond what the associated did.
At the moment I have the LMR electra wings which are 1.5mm thick lexan and so far these are rock solid ! Been in serious crashes and no even a micro split on it. Very pleased.

Figured I would post here also since I asked in the Jconcepts thread and it is for my B5m. I wanted to find out if anyone is running the rips front tires on their B5M. If so how do you like them? I am currently running the proline front ribbed tires and they are just OK at best and these look better.

It really depends on the type of track you run on. Whats your surface like? High bite, low bite, loamy, blue grooved, dusty?

The question is REALLY only pertinent to your own track. For example, on our clay track, the three tires that work, and in order of best to worst are:

Gold Dirt Webs
Pink Electrons
Gold Bar Codes

Now, on another indoor clay track, with a very similar type clay and everything, these three tires may be the best tires to use, but in reverse order... or maybe another tire entirely.

That's true didn't think about that lol. This is the first time I am actually trying to find a tire for my style instead of going off what the guys at the shop say. I was running proline holeshot tires in the rear and certain parts of the track there rear would start sliding and thats what a couple guys recommended along with the proline ribbed fronts.

My last practice last monday I switched to the Jconcepts Double Dee's and the rear is hooked perfectly now. Just need to find a front tire to compliment the front. The track is outdoor and slightly bumpy and can get loomy and dusty.
