Hey guys,

Which setup sheet do you recommend for indoor high bite clay track. We can use slicks now. I think my setup is good but want to fine tune .

traction is so good we traction roll on turns.

Thanks in advance!

If you think your car is pretty good now, why go and put someone else's setup into it? Fine tune what you have now. What is or isnt it doing that you want to change?

Default Kody's Setup

Shock package may be something to try.

I wonder if we've met before? I remember seeing you post in other threads before. I recognize your name too, though I can't put a face to it. You're a heck of a buggy driver in stock. Anyway, still relatively new to the hobby and trying to meet new people and learn everything I can.

I'll be at Bumps this Sunday with my brand new B5m CE (painted dark blue with white stripe and side wing panels), hopefully practicing it tomorrow night for the first time.

That's what I'm doing, fine tuning. Just basically looking at ball stud spacing, springs and other things I might have over looked.

I want it to drive as easy as possible so I can just focus on the lines.

Just got my Titatium Turnbuckles: Should I use the original ball cups or would be the RPM (just have them as spares) the better choice (improvment in ??)
(I won't mind to disassemble the original ones).

Originals in B5m are much better then RPM. Not like B4 series.

I think we're already leaning that way by swapping the 4x1.3 to the rear. My belief is they were always in between the 1.6 and 1.7, so it seems logical that would be the next step. I'm thinking with the less weight transfer of the 3 gear MM, we can run packages with less dampening (thinner oil and bigger holes) than we did with 4 gear. I'm currently on 35 1.6 fr and 30 3x1.4 rr and it just feels better everywhere.

He's very fast. In stock I think it's been Thomas, Joey, Stuart, Juan the last few weeks 1-4 with any of the 4 able to win. Andrew Gray is blazing too when he's there (he just won the classic). I tend to be in that next wave of guys after those top 4 (finished 5th a few times). Since you're new, I would just go 3 gear (for 17.5) and then go look at the Factory Lite setup sheet on AE's website. Copy that and start there. It was very good. Very neutral and easy to drive.

No it's not at all really. Only the main ball diff gear is the same. Rest is all new.
