I am running the same servo in mine, I am using a TLR servo arm. It has a slight offset, I am also using a 2mm spacer behind the ballstud to keep the steering link in line.

The TLR servo arm is STD thread so I did have to tap it out to metric.

If you find a method that works for you, great! I don't plan on trying to convince you one way is better than the other.
The instructions do tell you which side the bolt head goes on, whether you are using the 3 or 4 gear trans. I have seen a couple times where people have diffs that loosen up on their own and the screw was on the wrong side according to the instructions and when flipped over the problem was solved.

As long as I have been running AE cars it (bolt head) has usually been on the right side of the car, regardless of spur gear orientation.

I run the TLR arm I had on my 22 with a slight offset on my S6040 in the B5M but it doesn't clear the low profile. If your running a spacer on the ballstud it must have more of an offset. Do you have a pic or part #?

I did a search. Looks like some mill the case and the link.

Default B5m laydown

What is the verdict on the laydown transmission? B5M newbie wondering if it's worth the price on a roller I'm looking at buying for spare parts.

I run Savox in my B5M and T5M, had to take a few shavings off with my exacto, and I enlarged the servo mount holes to push the servo rearward about a mm or so...

I dont remember shaving the case at all, but I could be wrong. No pictures of my car but I am using this horn. (whichever spline is the right one for the Spektrum. I am also using the same one on my T5M and my SC5M. Neither of the trucks are using shorty servos.

I put an ACRC laydown in mine for stock racing. Had to make a few changes as far as setup goes. But it handles a lot smoother around corners and jumping is close to the same.

What position did you run your shocks? I'm running on a medium grip indoor clay track.

Right now I have them in front of the tower behind the arm. I haven't had a whole lot of time to mess around with that yet.

Looking to convert my B5 to B5m. I have looked on this site for advice on instructions since I can't find them on the Associated website. From what I have read the post say to refer to the B5m manual available online. Has anyone/website done a tutorial on what order to do the conversion also what parts to combine from each of the kits? Thanks for any help
Mark

Does anyone run the pro-line pro-spec buggy shocks? Do they perform better than the V2's?
