Are you using pliers to roll them off the ballstuds? I just 2mm mine out of the hole using my MIP, and leave them on the ball. They don't wear out and don't look chewed up!

I am not aware of an updated number. I ordered a package of replacements, and mine are free. I don't know if its luck of the draw, or what. My B5m is 1.5 years old, and the cups were flawless out of the package. My brand new T5m's cups were SUPER tight. Soooo... yeah.

Yeah, sometimes removed with pliers depends where it is, but they are just old and have battled through many practice days and short course trucks, haha. Mine are also original cups and were fine out of the box.

Guess I'll get 2 packs and see what I get. Thanks for the speedy reply.

If they are too tight, its no biggy anyway... the "pinch with pliers while on the ballstud" trick fixes them right up.

That world's car isn't even close to an associated? It's all screwed up. Who's setup are they running, does anyone know?

Or is it their version of it?

I don't have a video of the 2wd mains. But you can get a sense of the track and conditions with the 4WD video.

Loved it. I was sailing over other B5M kits (non-lites) over the doubles cause it's lighter and flies higher and farther. Running a shorty pack, with only the brass (C) mount. Also, being lighter we can clear triples that almost all the other cars have issues with.

What a cool track, looks like a lot of fun.

Pretty sure they are running the redworkshop low rider, On high grip im sure it will be great but on med grip im not too sure.

Digger I hope you will now put in more time with driving it stock or the setup you choose rather than chasing others setups.
Id spend a good chunk of time driving and keeping it wheels down first.
Tyres and track time. Absolutely NO offence intended.

What's so odd about it? That motor configuration seems to be the ticket for Astro/carpet. I'll go out on a limb here, but I think there will be a carpet conversion for the B5M after the worlds.

At least it doesn't look like this:

Anyone else wondering if these would work on the B5m?
