You have to run the correct tower with each arm design.
For example if you run a straight arm tower with a gull wing arm you will lose droop. Or if you run a gull wing tower with a straight arms you lose up travel.
The shocks mount at different heights on the tower for each arm.

I don't have anything to photograph here but the gull wing tower has a plastic bump in it to denote it as gull wing, the straight arm version does not have it.

Also as stated previously, parts are arriving all the time. We are getting shipments every week right now. It is just going to take time to have parts appear every where all the time.

Just a heads up, the aluminum Kyosho RB6 front axles work with a tiny bit of modding. Just in case you guys are wanting a light weight axle setup.

Welcome back Sean,
I thought that Kody told me you could mix and match, but maybe he left out those drawbacks.

See you Friday?

Has anyone had any luck finding B5M A-arms in stock? I raced the buggy for the first time last week and I broke the front shock tower. I was able to find a few of those but I am looking to stock up on a few other parts but having a tough time finding arms.

How's the b5M on lower bite tracks and/or your average outdoor track?
