Same here. I wonder if the B6 front and rear hubs will fit a B5? If they will, I'll just add them to my current laydown car and pick up a B6D for clay.

You guys, its not that bad. There are a lot of big races coming up here in SOCAL, and I'm sure elsewhere, so you're either going to sell your car(s) and not race or race until the new car arrives and good setups are available. Everybody is California Dreaming if they think the release will be on time. I can't remember 1 release in the last 3-4 years from any company that was on time. I'd imagine that you can still get 3 months of racing from your cars.

The new B6 Jconcepts rear wing mount explains why the B5M mount was on back order for the last 3 months.

The JC B5m mount is in stock now and has been for at least a few weeks.

It does however explain why JC has put development of their front hubs and shock towers "on hold."

I was asking about the honeycomb chassis.

They were testing some new tires and they were hooked up!

So back the dinosaur of a B5M. I am some what of an airhead with 10th scale car set up. Of course I have a common understanding for what ride height, springs, camber and other basic things do, but when it comes to all the small stuff that starts to click off tenths I am very uneducated on. I am one of the few people who run the B5 here and I was wondering if you guys could give me some pointers on where to go with setup. The car feels very good jumping and entering corners, but on the exit it is like the car either wants to spin or push. Also when I land it is not as planted as I would like. Any help will be much appreciated, and any other pointers would be helpful!

half the b5m's at my indoor clay track are running after market laydowns and im still running the regular 3 gear and finish in the top 4 on avg. Im not in a hurry for the new generation, plus the qc has been iffy . Dont get me wrong i love ae but im gonna wait see how well they hold up.

A lot of racers will experiment parts from the B6D on the B6 and vice versa. This opens to lot of possibilities

I'd have to buy the FL at a local Shop so no discount here, would cost exactly the same.

They are a tuning aid. You probably wont run them at all unless you are on a really high bite track on slicks.

We run on slicks here and i tried a rear bar last week and the car squared up better out of the corner but was a little too twitchy on entry on the current layout and traction level.
