I have the FT C and D blocks for both my cars but can't find the inserts anyplace.I know that this is profit driven business but Associated should have packaged the inserts with the blocks.

And when the inserts wear out you have to buy everything all over again? I think we should all be happy with how AE packages their parts. Have you seen the 22 2.0 and 22-4 thread? Its ridiculous how some of these other companies are packaging their stuff. It's normal for this to happen with the release of not one but two highly anticipated cars. They will become available soon, until then you can continue to use the standard stuff. Your bling can wait a bit.

You may want to move the esc to the other side. The motor wires will be in the way of the thumb screws and battery strap.

Have no problem whatsoever in Associated packaging and fully understand why a lot of the parts are not available for the new cars.I was just trying to be diligent and use them on my original build to remove any mechanical variables for setup!! It's all good!

Does anyone know the F/R weight distribution of the B5M vs the B5?

So I have been pondering on lightening this thing up a bit and need some of your guy's help.

First off, I found that the diff rings between the B4 and the B5 are the same size and that the outdrives share the same bearing dimension of 10mm. Translation= The MIP pucks outdrives will swap over to the B5 diff gear and transmission.

Second I need someone with a Losi 22 to see if your CV bones will swap over to the AE. Mainly because losi makes these:

So basically remove those off your 22 and see if you can fit them to the B5. I am just not sure if the length/barrel size/pin size is correct.

I have a sneaking suspicion that they will fit which means that you could in theory buy the losi bones, press out the pins, drill out the pinhole to accept the pucks pins and have a B5 "pucks" setup.

You can use the B4 pucks in the B5...you just have to shim the diff a little bit and use B4 hub carriers/bearings (drill the hinge pin to 3mm).

by drilling out the pin hole to accept pucks i dont think it would be as smooth as an actual puck bone.

I think it would be easier just to wait for MIP to release the B5 version.

I want to keep the AE axle/hubs because of the adjustments. Drilling/machining out the hole won't be an issue. I have a garage full of the right tools to do it properly. Just want to see if the length is correct and if the AE stub axles will transfer over. I just don't have a Losi 22 on my collection to gut lol.

Not to mention the losi bones are $20 and I like to tinker . If I can just port over my stuff from my 4.2 then all the better.

Someone already got pucks into a B5. It was either in the B5r thread or on the Facebook B5 Nation. Good luck.

Yeah, that was using all b4 parts...hubs, bearings, etc.
