Quick question:
I am having my first carpet Indoor session with my buggy, so I bought mini Pins at the local shop.

I also bought the Schumacher Rims as well. Now I noticed, that the Front Rims have far less depth of the hex (the rears seem to be equal) compared to my proline holeshot...(See pic)

Can I use both Front and rear Rims?

AE b5\b5m comes with 3 sizes for the ball cups, i like to use the mid one on my b5m and sc5m all the way around. What are you trying to achieve? Have you downloaded the setup sheet from rc10.com ?

What body does fit over a waterfall mounted WTF? The only one that looks like it might is the Sweep Muzzle body. I'm willing to do a bit of trimming but I had to chop a ton off my stock body. Anyone have experience with the Windy WTF?

I ran a silencer with a waterfall fan and it fit pretty good.

What's interchangeable between the V1 & V2 big bore shocks? Curious if the pistons and o-rings are compatible between my B5M(V2) and my Centro CT4.2 (V1). Appreciate any clarification.

As long as you don't have the New fox shocks(gold) all the parts should interchange.

As far as bodies and fans I must be doing something wrong because I don't have anywhere near the heat you guys seem to have as I have no need for a fan

You should be ok with those rims on the stock front axles.

I am looking at ordering a b5m factory lite from tower hobbies this week and im looking for suggestions on what else I should be picking up with the kit. I am going to be running 17.5 blinky on hard packed clay that has decent tractions, slightly damp. So far I threw the aluminum shock caps in the kit and I am not certain what other things may be needed. Hard arms? different wings? A suggestion for a reasonably priced battery?

I have a gift card to my local track but they don't have the kit in stock so I will be buying my esc, motor, and additional batteries from them. Just looking what I might need from tower so I wont have to place a second order. Sorry for the newb question, I haven't been into rc for almost 10 years when I had my xray t2, so offroad buggies are new to me!! Thanks!
