sup guys. once again gonna get back into the rc world. prolly gonna pickup the b5m. got a few questions. im gonna be peicing it together over some time. if i was to build the shocks and diff etc, is the lube/grease gonna dry out if not in use for a while? also i still have from green slime and shock oils, thread lock etc from a lil over a year ago. does it need to be replaced or should it still be ok? ive never had an rc sit for that long so i was curious before i build it just to redo things. thx in advance

cory

I would build everything but the shocks. One I was ready to run it, then I would build them. Green slime does dry out and O ring swell up over time.
That's just me though.

there's no 'crush' washer built into it. So when you tighten the screws it binds. If you crack them loose a little so it doesn't bind, it just backs out. I used lock tight, even tried coating the screws, letting it dry and then threading them in. Simply doesn't work.

I heard there's a mod that you can do to add a crush washer but I haven't seen it The plastic parts fit perfect and work perfect so that's what's installed right now. Maybe down the road I'll find this mod and do it, but for now, no thanks.

The joke was about being concern about a few grams..
Only company I know of that offers a Ti axle is Lunsford.

Very nice piece...

Lunsford offers many great upgrades for your B5.

Check um out...

Or build them up with the red orings and save the x-rings for when it's time.

I did the crush washer mod on the akerman rack and works great. Never had a screw back out on the aluminum rack. There needs to be a crush sleeve on the long screws that thread into the top plate. The mod was on B5 Nation FB page.

Basically you use the 1mm blue AE ballstud washer between the bearings in the akerman rack. you have to ream out the hole between the two bearings enough to allow the washer to fit. it was a 5 min mod.

Sold the one Scott was holding for me, thought no big as Ae will send more.

Dude !
Ae don't even have the spare parts , who would think they even sell a ride with out parts available ?

They used to stock the parts weeks before, now they have customers waiting and can't build or even fix the thing.

Sure hope they get it together soon.

Sean !!!!

Where's the inserts for the alloy arm mounts ?

When ??????

When I am on quarter throttle or less, it's really choppy and makes some grinding noise. My diff was broken in and it's really smooth. Does anyone know what the problem could be?
