you can always reverse the motor direction in the esc to go forward with a 3 gear...

Hey Leigh whats up?
Im taking about why they added the fourth gear in the MM design since the he said he didnt have any idea why they did that.
When you make a motor run backwards thru the ESC it puts a lot of strain on the motor since it was not designed to run that way.
I dont think it would run very fast that way either

B5M instruction manual is posted up on AE

Edit: It appears it is not working correctly. They have the product pages loaded with some of the parts listed, mainly hardware.

I think most 2-pole motors these days have significant endbell timing and lack of free adjustability. That would make them run pretty poorly in reverse.

You don't even do that. Oval cars have been running mid motor with the b3 tranny for years and just in the last year or so have moved on to other ratios. You literally just turn the gear box around (keeping diff oriented correctly though). Motor plate stays right side but mounts "forward". The weight might be a little forward for optimal off-roading but it can be done.

AE's 4 gear design allows the motor to move "back" more and has a nice mount area for rigidity.

It's working you just need to let the page load longer.

One thing I have noticed that could be improved on (in my mind anyways) is the front suspension mount. How many of you have stripped out the 2-56 screws holding on the front brace? Couldn't we get by with one 2 or 2.5 mm screw centrally and a have the mount keyed?

after looking over the manual and looking up the part numbers it looks like there are not parts that will cross over from the 4.2 to the 5. shock bodies and rims is about it from the looks of it and possibly the turnbuckles.

I don't own any of the associated stuff but this is going to be my first, so very excited

turnbuckles sizes, shock orings, shock bodies, springs, diff/thrust balls, diff rings and that is about it.

I love all the little optional screws not included. grub and steering stop screws, lol. No idea why you would not include them, lol. Not like they cost much. Anyway, looks liek the rear axles are 5mm and not 4mm. So if you want to use some other rims on the market, you might need to ream them out. RB6 for one. Maybe tlr, I will need to measure when I get home.

wildcat: Looking up the part number the rims say they will fit the RB 6 and 22 as well. Ya why wouldn't they provide the screws you mentioned? that seems kinda silly to me.

the AE rims have larger holes than the RB6 for sure. So yes, they will with the RB6, but the rb6 rims are 4mm, and would need to be reamed out. My tlr22 wheels fit the b44 and b4 just fine, just a little bit light on threads. But I am not sure if there axles are thicker, thinner or about the same as the b44 and b4 axles. I am at work, but I can break out my calipers when i get home. For those coming from the TLR22 platform and want to reuse your rear wheels, the only issue would be, "Are axles longer enough". Because the tlr wheels have a very thick center.
