With the wing shim, there's a boss for a screw across from the usual mounting points.

I assume they are for extra bracing. Does anyone use it? What's people opinions on using the extra screw boss? Would the screw need a washer too.

If your talking about the wing angle piece on the wing mount, yes I use that screw to tighten up the wing against the body clips that hold the wing onto the mount. It does give it a slight angle though.

I screw my wing down and don't encounter any wing movement.

Cool, in most photos I have ever noticed if people use it. I did a quick google image search on b5m's and did not see it in use. Makes sense though, the force through the wing both for downforce & for landing on its back (hah) is through that angle.

Too much typing, not enough racing. Just drive the damn thing!

I'm waiting to get everything together before I even attempt at wiring. Being my first buggy this is very tight and I want everything figured and in place before I tackle what at this point is looking like a cluster..lol

Oh and if you have the side foam in battery tray you will need to remove. The packs are tight side to side..

I needed the smaller battery for the LCG conversion. I read their website and everything in the lower 48 is 3 day fedex which is great!

I cant believe how small the battery is!

As I said I would I purchased a pack from Amazon and from Amain. The first thing that is obvious is the packaging, the one form Amain is shorter. This is not a mistake because I actually purchased two of these form Amain and they are both short. Also you cannot see it but one of their labels is just a little bit brighter. With all of this I am hoping this leads to a new batch that fits without fussing with it.

This weekend I will post more on how each fit.



I also got a package of parts, I am excited to finally finish this thing up and hit the track soon. I am hoping to be back on my feet within the next week or two.

I would think Amain sells more so I hope they have the newer sets but am interested in your find. Make sure to get pics of all your goodies so us that can't wrench can drool.
I have another 5 weeks before I'll be fully mobile but I hope I can atleast hop around in 1 more week..

AE seems to change their packaging on stuff all the time. I have all sorts same parts with different labels and the same part #'s. I'm not sure that the parts are any different in most cases. You do have a stronger chance of getting different ballcups because those were definitely revised but I wouldn't bet on it.

Default ball diff bolt & t-nut

about to rebuild my diff and realized i do not have a fresh bolt a t-nut (part #ASC6575) - realize it's smart to use a fresh one every rebuild, but critical?

or is there away around buying a new one every time? thanks.

The Amain ones were perfect without any modification. I have an extra set if someone local wants to purchase them. I also change the balls studs to Lunsford titanium and JConcepts titanium turnbuckles.

I finally completed the rebuild and upgrade of the front and rear. I am waiting on new servo ends and a crimp tool to finally wire everything again. I located the transponder to just in front of the servo. I also have a new Orion R10 that I think I am going to try out instead of the Tekin RSX. Also sent Fantom an email inquiring about their FR-1.

Also changed the arms to the B5 flat arms front and rear along with all of the other parts in the photos.

I hope you get on your feet soon, I'm going through the same.

MIP sells one with a replaceable insert (#15010), it comes with two inserts and you can buy more for $6 (#99099).

I've reused it before, I think another concern is the spring and replacing that too if you take it apart enough.
