I have a servo stop, it's called dual rate but seriously, I never want less steering throw anyways
The extra boss on the rear axle, good thinkin slim

This car looks great -- can't wait
The chassis doesn't appear to be perfectly flat, the sides angle up slightly for the chassis craddle.

Yeah the bushing goes on the screw. They've had the same thing all the way back to the rc10t I bought 20+ years ago.

I remember that and hated that then.

I wonder if the SC10 4x4 titanium shock mount (#91139) would work and give you quick shock adjustment?

well obviously the manuals are done, or least a close to final version. I would expect something soon. They might wait till the reedy race to give more press. Keep in mind, the Chinese new year is in 3 weeks, so they wont be getting much work done then, lol.

I thought the Team drivers would be racing the B5M in the Reedy race for sure.

Gear diff as an option--wonder how many people will be trying that on surfaces less than very high bite??
I think this may be the new trend--gear diffs--especially in mod?? Even if it isn't high bite??
Six or so months ago people woulda balked at the idea of mid-motor buggies doing well on anything less than high bite. Geez this hobby moves fast!
As an FYI--Yokes's Bmax2 MR V2 comes with a gear diff "standard" and a ball diff as an option.....

The new rear bearings are 5mm on the inside. But I just measured my b44 rear axles as 4.75mm and the holes in my tlr rims are 4.87mm. Also, my b4 rear hex wheels measure 5.02mm +/-. So in short. If you want to use TLR, kyosho or some of the other brands of rear wheels, get a reamer or drill bit

Also looks like the avid triad will fit the top shaft.

At least the manual calls for m3 flange nuts to mount up the shocks. No more black plastic ones. I have a bunch of M3 nuts from my 8.2e laying around. I guess all my extra screws better get a separate container from new metric B5.

Previous posters on this thread mentioned something on the order of MM driving differently than RM.

Could anyone go into greater detail about the differences in driving technique?

I'm seriously considering getting back into 1/10 buggy and have been trying to decide between RM and MM.
