Gotta try everything and see what yourself prefers... right ? Maybe it sucked for you Rickster, but as we've been trying to stress in this thread so far, it's all about trying things on tuning to see what you like or not.

Good luck all
I got the same information from Steven and Kody, Steven said it shortened up the wheelbase.

hey bill... so I measured with a digital caliper and its 1/3 of a mm farther forward sweep.. so yes they are right.. and what I meant by it sucked was I even tried drilling holes and trying left b5 rear arm on left side.. which swept the arms way way back.. that's what I meant... sometime hard to say things on here when your tired.

I didn't use my dig. caliper the first time I tried them on.. so yes I was wrong.

and what works for my driving style and are may not be what works for you.. so test and have fun man... that's what its all about.

And that's all I meant in my feedback as well

hey rigor and bill... I looked and I was measuring off my already modded b5m rear arms.. I had sanded the front and used a spacer washer behind to take up slack which moved the arm farther forward anyway... so I measured against a new arm and the b5 is .5mm farther forward then the b5m.. but still had the slack.. so I sanded the front of the b5 arm to try and move the arm as far forward as I could and used a spacer washer on it inback of arm...and it does move the arm about .75mm farther forward.. it almost touches the back of the chassis that way. just drove it a pack and it does have better rear bite.

dang need to keep modded parts separate from new stuff..lol

Yup; the B5-R rear arms give more rear bite according to the folks already running them. Mine will be here early next week. Looking forward to some new parts and tweaks on my B5m before heading back out to run again late next week

im running b5m rear arms, with 1mm spacer behind the arm, sounds like its about the same effect with almost touching the chassis.

spacer used was a 1mm spacer from:
http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...ter-Set-TLR-22

got from a local tlr racer just had to ream the hole slightly and it went right on.

i noticed an increase in rear bite from when it was free floating, and when i spaced the arm forward.

For those guys running the 155 grams shorty packs. What location are you running the pack?

I tried it all the way back, but went back to shorty. Car might work with it but needs to be tuned way differently for that weight. Was skittish and jumpy no consistency and didn't want to mess with it.

In MY OPINION(!) losing that much weight so dramatically is going to require that you try all the various locations for yourself. Getting down to ROAR minimum is the reason that you can now "Tune" with weight bias.

It just dawned on me this car is getting as bad as the RB6. There are now 8 front end combinations and 4 rear arm combinations. How long till the narrow hangers come out? Don't get me wrong I love tinkering as much or more than anybody but I can see tuning myself into a hole.
