I don't want to argue about who said what and when but all the chassis sponsored guys I know say that they have to run the OE stuff. Only the privateer types can run the aftermarket stuff. I know Joe Pillars, the Kyosho team manager, is very strict about his guys using OE stuff. Anywho, the slipper that comes with the B5M Lite is more than adequate, especially for stock racing. I think people feel that if they get the "best" of everything that its going to make them faster. Subconsciously, I probably fall into that category myself. I don't practice enough and don't have enough natural ability to ever really be fast but I've accepted it. The guys that are always talking about how you gotta try this setup or that new part are B main heroes. Case and point, George Cherry.

Guys, run whatever slipper suits your fancy, and express your opinion.

But stop bickering over it. Past time to move on.

with all the lightweight drivetrain parts now available and the power i'm seeing from today's 17.5's, there is no reason not to run a slipper. We're on high traction carpet and I finally had to resort to running the slipper. Cars much more consistent and its easy to control the front tires rising....

Changing the subject anyone tried to achieve less then 2.5 degrees of rear toe? besides reversing 0.5 hubs?

You can use the inserts meant for the rear motor B5 to remove toe on the B5m.

Unless you are running stock, on medium bite you will probably benefit slightly from the 4 gear. However, it is a fairly small difference in handling that other tuning options can take care of. If you have one gearbox already, just run it and tune around it.

So how long until the laydown transmission comes out? I would think there is enough demand to warrant it or at least someone like Jconcepts/Avid/Schelle to make one.

I would be curious to see how this trans works on med to high grip clay.

Does any body have some time to chat about servos? My son and I both have b5m's, both with Spektrum DX4C's. His runs the savox 1258tg and I run the spektrum 6040, fairly identical servos or so I thought.

His savox installed nearly straight up, needs very little subtrim adjustment, runs toe links at kit instruction lengths and gets nearly full throw in both directions. One side turns a little further but the travel is so good that one side is 90% and the other is 85%.

My 6040 on the other hand has been such a headache. After exhausting every solution I can think of, my horn has been installed off center with toe links adjusted so that one is shorter and the other is longer than kit instructions, subtrim is L15. While the throw is close to even left to right, the steering blocks come nowhere near to hugging the caster blocks. It also seems that increasing travel on the radio past 100% gains nothing in throw.

Is everybody getting full throw left and right? Is anybody else running the 6040 with similar or better results?

Any help or info would be appreciated.
