Exactly. It's also a great way to remove slop that may have developed over time. I didn't glue mine immediately, but I eventually used glue after i noticed slop starting to develop in that area.

I did have a question regarding setup. I am going to try 2mm of trailing for my front axles. The manual does a great job of explaining ackerman and wheelbase changes with the trailing axle chart. It doesn't mention if the caster block needs to be spaced differently tho. Any help here? I see where stock gets the 2mm spacer to the rear with 4mm of trailing, but I am confused because if I reverse the axle inserts for 2mm trail and place the spacer in front of the caster block, what did I really gain?

Early B5 buggies had a different topshaft and bearings, it was a running change made about a year ago. Not sure if the transmission case changed as well. I'm still running the old one in my B5.

Just an FYI if you use the hard parts on the front end, don't hit anything as they explode. Seen it first hand. Hard parts equal parts flying on impact, quite impressive!

General idea of racing is don't crash. That's the first and only thing anyone who is a "crasher" should be working on. All crashing does, whether it breaks the car or not, is just hammer the car. This is also why you don't buy used cars...

I crash, thankfully not hard enough to explode hard parts

My front arms are hard and have been on the car for a year. I crash a bunch, but the only time I have ever broken hard parts was going straight into a wall. I was recently told, I am not driving hard enough if I am not breaking more.

You drive plenty hard. Hard enough that I'd recommend you buy a new car every race day...you hammer that poor thing.

Savox 1258 is the best you can get for the money.

Define the word "budget" as it has different meanings to everyone..

$15 for a AE/Losi/Traxxas RTR servo...
$30 for some of the low end digital servos...
$50 for some of the good servos like the Spektrum 6040 or Protek 100ss.
$80 for some of the upper end servos like Savox Blacks and Xperts. (my budget is around here)
$100+ for stuff like the KoPropo...

Would a castle sidewinder 4600 motor and esc be ok to run in my B5M? I have this motor and esc, but am pretty new to electric. I am building a buggy to try and get into racing in the stock class.

Ive got an M8 radio and a Hitec MG servo from my older RC days that I was planning on using in this buggy. Should be ok?

How is everyone not using a bat strap holding battery in? Shoe goo, Double sided tape ran full width of battery?
