i am running the flat arms and tower with the hard plastic and im liking it. Mellowed out the steering a tad and drives a little more predictably through the corner for me.

You should give those tips to your "Team". No one told The Ryans or anyone else at the CC, since all of the factory drivers seem to be using flat arms

If the flat arms smooth out the steering I can see that working at CC but the car is so new I would be interested to see what everyone does in 6 months on less bite tracks.

At this point, there's no reason to not try a multitude of different things on the cars. The B5M didn't look all that dialed in quite yet.

2nd & 3rd on the grid is not bad for a new ride.

Have team mates who switched back from Rb6 loveN the car a lot...

Doh! The track was getting a bit dry and dusty so my B5m's rear end was starting to kickout a bit coming out of the turns. I needed more grip in the rear so someone told me to remove the spacers from under the rear inner ballstuds. If I want more grip in the rear going through and exiting out of turns do I want to remove the spacers under the rear inner ball studs or put spacers in there?

This is exactly why I find it funny that AE released the 2 cars with the arms they did. Everyone said rear motor pushed when B5 was new, lots of folks stating B5m is edgy in the rear.

AE priced the kits very competitively, but this tuning option and putting the 'less correct' arms for each kit is a quick and easy way to get another $10 out of everyone. Good business practice "mistake"
