Yes, less weight over the rear end but the main thing is less bone bind with the outdrive.

Same premise as when we ran plastic outdrives in the xxx series cars years back. Image is from the xxx manual.

Yes. They work well. I used to buy my b4 gears from them as well.

Default Setup help

I'm looking for help for 8.5 setup on outdoor, low traction, dusty dirt track. The car has the kit setup but I can't get enough traction. Tires are hole shot m3 front and m4 rears. I checked petit RC for setups but it's not clear which dirt surface resembles the one I run on.

I've been using the shiny pucks with the rollers. I'm very happy with it. Its not quite as light but the rollers make it very smooth. I don't think that I'll use the regular pucks anymore.

I have ran them. Same situation as what I posted. Not everyone can tell the difference. There is a reason not everyone uses them. Out here the majority of stock racers don't. On a very high bite track the slight loss of rear bite can be a benefit. It's not a night and day difference

Check my prior posts in this thread. Ray Munday setup guide is a great start. Key items are B5R rear arms with hubs forward, green springs all around, 1.7 pistons 30/35 R/F, 3.5 deg rear toe. Also, I only run Hole Shot fronts if the grip comes up after we wet the track down. Otherwise too much steering. When it's dry and dusty, JC Rips fronts limit the oversteer. For really dry/loose I like proline Blockades or Bow ties in the rear. Some guys in this thread like the brass rear weights, but my personal opinion is it causes too much rear pendulum and oversteer. Also read posts by user Razathorn about link positions.

I am finishing building my b5 cry and I have an issue at last steps : on the 4 gears motor mount there is no thread pitch for the gear cover. Hence the screw can go in... I try to push hard to try make the screw start a thread but it does not work.
Am I re first one having this issue ?

It is strange because in second motor mount for the 3 gears configuration there is a thread pitch for the gear cover.
