I heard someone locally actually got a B5M kit late last week.

Anyone else got their B5M yet?

Looks like the B4 ones. How are those supposed to work on the new axles or do you need different ones?

Ok. I'm with you so far. Part number 91400 includes the 2mm shim. What do you use for 1mm if you want to run 3mm trailing axles?

2x 1mm shims. Shim the block 1mm on each side.

Good catch! Caster only exists up front.

I'm about ready to install the D arm mounts. Which way do the arrows point on the inserts? I also am guessing that on the C arm mounts the number that is installed on top of the insert is what setting the car will have.

Does anyone know what a stock b5m weights without battery?

I was depressed today I weighed mine. Came in at 1609 grams RTR. My battery is 212 grams so I can save 60 grams there. I'm running titanium screw kit and turn buckles. Along with aluminum top shaft. Carbon fiber battery strap and a few aluminum parts.

Far cry to 1500 grams.

Alum upgrades to replace plastic parts will mostly likely add weight. IMO the best place to lose weight if you a weight crazy person is in the esc and servo. The tekin rs gen2 and a light weight low profile servo is about as light as you can get. Plus the 150gram battery would get you very low.
