Question:

For those of you that use the brass arm mounts, are they pretty durable? I mean do they get warp easy when you do a rollover or land funny after a jump?

I never used a brass arm mount but have used brass on my sct right infront of my rear shocks on the chassis which is a common place for sct but I haven't seen anybody actually run brass arm mounts on this car for stock or mod so I'm curious on what you want the weight to help with on this car

Newbie Question: My B5M was purchased used and it takes corners very wide, even when braking. It's steering throw must be set up this way. As a point of reference, I also have an SC5M that has a much tighter turning radius. Is this possible? Any quick tips on what to look for to increase the throw on the B5M.... just starting to work on these cars. Thx in advance

Adjust your steering throw so it goes as wide as it can, equally in both directions, but only up to the point where it stops mechanically. You don't want the servo to throw past where the steering linkage can pysically go. You will have plenty of steering. If the wheels are going all the way left and right, your DR/throw is down below 100%.

Also, it is very important to make sure that the length of both steering turn buckles are identical. I measure mine down to the 10th of a millimeter.

Indestructible. I have never seen a failure of any kind.

I been told from some guys with the steering throw EPA to back off a little at full throw on the radio intill the servo stops. Buzzing more than a few seconds . Of course a slight buzz will happen still it's digital .

And also look to see if the steering servo buckle is hitting on the servo or anything hitting at full throw .

But really when at a time would you need to steer actual full throw on the track usually if you do on buggy it's overdriving .

Thx - I'm very green. Picked up the hobby last summer for a few months and just picked it back up. Kid got interested finally. In any event, explaining the newbie questions. Regarding steering throw, do I adjust on my radio? Everything is set to 100 percent left and rt on a futaba 4pk.

You still get full throw at 68-70 ? On my Futaba radio my is in the 90s on the EPA throw could go less maybe.

My dual rate is at 100%

Up here they run extra weight as the track is loose to medium grip. They were running the B5M because of the extra weight. They ran the regular B5M with almost 2 x 30 gr's added to get grip at the biggest race. We have real offroad still not that sticky clay that a lot of places have. I miss the old school tracks.

Hope that helps.

You also need to check your D/R (dual rate). It's adjusted with one of the little roller dials on the grip. I bump mine on accident all the time. DR amount is displayed right on the main menu, you don't need to go into a sub menu to see or adjust it.

Questions?? Machined Pistons

Are machined pistons a worth investing in??? If so what make & size would you recommend starting with?

(hopefully) plan on returning to racing after a long long break. Home track is Norcal Hobbies; Hi-Bite clay surface.

Thanks

No real reason, it's an option and I don't recall any mention of people using them.

I have a lite chassis, guess if I need quite a bit of weight I will got with regular chassis.
