If I'm reading this right. If your rear shock is outside in the arm there's a huge part of your problem! Also, like Ray mentioned typically we use 3mm on the rear hubs and 1-3 on the inside.

Does anyone know if the Fox kashima coated shock bodies, 12 x 23 and 12 x 31, for the B5m will fit a B4.2 with the factory series shocks?

Yes but you would need the correct shock cartridges and shock shafts also.

Honestly I would start with kit stock and get the right tires then go from there.

I can give you a starter, 2mm shims in front bulkhead and 3 mm in rear with rear camber link flipped upside down as -2mm .

Go with a JConcepts Dirt Web or Bar Flys or AKA Typo, Chainlink or Cross link in Clay Compound. Get a good tire sauce like SXT 3.0. Keep battery about 9 mm from full back position.

That should get you in the ball park. Then you can start tweaking from there. Have fun.

I run on the same kind of clay surface how tight is your slipper clutch and ball diff ? My slipper was actually to loose somebody noticed so tighten it up intill the wheels got about 2mm high. And made a big difference with the push a lot more forward grip/drive .

The ball diff if its a tad to tight will cause a push or sliding out/spinning out so try to loosen it a little . Today at the track i went to it was dry clay some quite slick spots .


Ride height also i lowered my to 23mm from 24mm .

Rear steering knuckles? Maybe you are missing commas and they are all different parts. From looking at googled photos they appear to be direct replacements.

There are weight differences and also durability. If you are looking for rear hubs I would get the ones that mount to the ball stud vertically over horizontally, more options to tune.

Sorry I got it mixed up with my e Maxx that has the front steering hubs that I am putting on and they are by hot racing..

They are AE brand aluminum rear mounts.

I see later on in the manual that the Chassis brace '91521' is secured also to the chassis, but those holes don't line up.

Did I get the wrong chassis brace? I checked the supplements to no avail. Thanks.
I sent you a PM, there is a Lite Chassis for sale in the for sale section.
