Going to try moving the rear springs in as well. Hope I can see .5 second drop as well

I ended up running the motor all the way back and turned it into a B5. Joking aside I run a 75, was thinking of toying with a 69 if I ran into a traction issue.

I am looking for some help...I am trying to tune my new B5m for an indoor carpet off road track. The buggy is awesome but it has a bit of high speed push in the front that I can't get rid of. I am running the following settings:
-1 Camber all around
2 degree toe out
40 weight front / 32.5 rear oil
Mini Pin rear tires, Cut Stagger slim front
Ride height is around 16.

Any suggestions to get a bit more high speed steering?

Thanks...Scott

What are you running for caster and offset in your front hubs? For high grip carpet you will want to reduce caster and move the spindle forward. The kit starts with higher caster and 4mm offset.

In addition what springs are you running. You can increase spring rate in the rear to reduce traction roll and increase steering (reduce push). I would also reduce your front oil weight.

Caster is 5 and the trailing axle insert is 3mm. I tried to drop the oil in the front down to 37.5 but it seemed to push a bit more. Also, how about the shock mount points...any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!! Scott

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!!

If you stand up the shocks more it can improve or reduce push. The stock set-up uses the center hole. You could try the outer hole to see if that helps. Most people used the inner hole on the tower and outer hole on the arm which will stiffen the response in the B4.2. I learned on high bite Astroturf that a more vertical shock on the front reduced push because the initial compression of the suspension was softer with the right spring/oil combination.

What holes are you using today?

I would also try the 0deg caster block insert to decrease caster.

The only other options look at camber link settings.

I was using the outer on the front and inner rear. I tried switching the front to the inner but I think things got worse. I am going to set the front back to the outer. What do you suggest for oil for the front? I dont have any other spring options yet since all of my old springs are for my b4.1 without the big bore shocks.

Can someone give me the part number for the shim to use on the rear inner hinge pin if your rear arms have excess play? Thanks.

I used the plastic spacers that are used to center up your rear hubs. I took my body Remer tool to open the hole some. Used one and now there is zero play. I located the washer towards the rear shock tower. Hope that all makes since.
