If your a really good driver,with a good set-up and the right tire you can win with anything.

I run on indoor high grip carpet without roll bars, once I lengthened the camber turnbuckles and got carpet tirez on all four's, and set the ride height I haven't had a problem nor have I felt or even thought that I needed roll bars, take those hairpins at high speeds like a champ..

Default Tranny gearing?

Do I have to "re-gear" when switching from a 4gear to 3 gear tranny or does it stay the same?

The internal ratio stays the same if that's what you are asking...

The stock turnbuckles I have are all 2.06". I am wanting something stronger and more durable. I noticed the Lunsford are different sizes than stock. They have smaller turn buckles and even smaller ones for the steering. The Factory Team are smaller too at 1.875" but are all the same size.

I'm lost and need some help here. If I use either of these are they going to throw my steering, camber, toe, etc all out of wack? Help!!!!

Lunsford Specs

(4) 3mm x 1 5/8" Punisher Titanium Turnbuckles (Front & Rear Camber)
(2) 3mm x 1 3/4" Punisher Titanium Turnbuckles (Steering)

Factory Team Specs
1.875"

which turnbuckles would be a better choice?

My vote is for the Lunsford ones. There won't be an issue with your camber or toe. Measure the length of the stock turnbuckles, from tie rod end, to tie rod end, then adjust the new turnbuckles to the same length to get in the "ballpark". You'll probably still need to make adjustments to get the optimum camber and toe settings.

hey all

I had a maybe dumb question but i was running my buggy at the track and kept hearing a noise like small debris or dirt getting into gears or something, and noticed how exposed the motor is. I cut the body as close to the motor as possible but it kindof stuck out a little (Reedy Mach 3 10.5) and was surprised how exposed the holes in the rear edge of the can are. Should I be worried about this and figure out some sort of guard of some sort? Not sure about the noise but it happened maybe 3 times during running at the track (it would eventually go away like the small grains of sand/dirt would dislodge).

thanks!

Sorry if asking an old question. Anyone try B6 front arms and/or steering blocks on the B5M?

Front pivot block is very different between the cars I'd venture to say they wouldn't fit. I'll check the bulkhead sizes tonight when I get to the track and unpack.

I am running B6 steering blocks, or more precisely, everything except the arms. The front C-hubs are 5 or 6mm taller on the B5. The B6 front axle is also 1mm longer than the B5, so you can't tighten the B5 axle or the bearings lock up.

I originally tried to find the right combination of shock spacers and 3mm x 1mm shims to make it happen, but it was too hillbilly for my taste and I would surely loose it if I had to change it between race heats.

So to do it correctly, you need:
B6 steering blocks
B6 C-hubs
B6 aluminium front axles
AE Factory team or Shelle B6 hat bushings.

The end result is better and the fit is so perfect with the FT hat bushings that there is zero slop in the kingpin bolts. I still run my B6 as my main car now, but I'm glad I did the B5 upgrade.

Thanks Eddie, ultimately, I was just really curious if the steering block arms with different Ackermann would make a big (any) difference. Was pretty sure the arms the bulkhead were different, but the carriers, steering blocks were part of the idea. Just wanted to ask before spent the money on all the parts.

Hello, just registered for rc tech. I bought a rc10 b5m with a hobby wing ESC and a speed passion 17.5r motor. Looking for some shorty packs. I was looking at the team Orion 4500 or 5000. Also I need to get some wheels and tires. Jconcepts wheels and tires for an outdoor track. I will be racing at lake part in Tampa. I think they are running a pin type of tire.
