Another thing that helps is run the smallest spur possible. I'm running 66/33, puts the motor that much farther back.

I suggest putting an oversized washer between the plastic rear hub insert and ballstud to better spread the mounting pressure from the stud. You can only get the replacement plastic inserts by purchasing the entire rear hub set. I went with the HARD version now since I had to buy anyway.

I've wondered about this also. The factory guys were running gear diffs at the IFMAR and CC races.

I'm not going to say they weren't but I see them refreshing there ball diffs all the time. Unless Cav and Hartson don't count.

I just finished my B5m build. Car feels like a tank. Can't wait to drive it this weekend. One question on electronics...will a Savox 1233SG fit properly? Also did anyone else have broken shock eyelets in the box? I had two that were split down the middle. Weird.

Ball diffs for OCRC since it's med to high bite. Only need those gear diffs for super high bite I believe.

After that you can toy with the inner rear camber link ballstud height. I am currently happy with 0 washers, bringing the ballstud down.

These changes along with the flat front arms/tower made me much happier with the B5m so far! To each their own style and preference of feel.

Good luck

hey rigor,
just wanted to say thanks. knocked off at least .5 off my times. haven't had a chance to try flat arms but laying shock down was money with those springs. appreciate it man.

I dont want to offend anyone but if you cant get a RM car around the track then MM probably isnt going to help you. GEAR DIFFS, Unless your on HIGH HIGH bite astro, then i dont think its worth messing with, or its for lazy people? I run on high bite dirt/clay that MM car will wheelie down the straight and we all run ball diffs w/ no issue. we will run them for 6 months w/ no gritty feeling at all. Its all in the build and break in and final sttings. I love the B5M, great car, as good or better than anything available IMO. I have owned 22 2.0, RB6,and the B5M and I prefer the B5M for its steering characteristics. I wont bore you fellas anymore but just my thoughts!!

Does anyone know if the aluminum top shaft part #91427 will work in the b5m? They just came into stock on associated site but don't list what cars it will work in.

Yes, that is the part number for the B5 and B5M.
