Which is a dialed setting, always been my preference. That and I like the inside rear shock tower mounting hole as well.

I drove my B5m today with the B5 rear arms, shimmed forward. Rear is totally planted. Had a great day at the track

I ended up picking up the dewalt Gyroscptic cordless screwdriver. On the lowest setting it usually won't even screw the bolt in all the way on my Rc cars. So u don't have to worry about stripping out the plastic or aluminum threads. At the same time it has more power overall tho. Best of both worlds.

The gyro feature is odd and takes a bit to get used to. U don't have a forward or reverse. Or even a speed setting. U pull the trigger and turn the gun the way u want to go. The farther u turn the faster it goes. Simply turn it the opposite direction to reverse and again the farther u turn the faster it goes. It's just like using a hand tool the way u normally would. It does still have 15 slipper settings.

The other model I would concider is the Hitachi cordless screwdriver. It's just as adjustable with standard controls.

Both are more than the ryobi. But worth it to me. I have 5 cars. Saves a lot of time. I keep it on a low setting and tighten the last bit by hand to prevent stripping anything.
Thanks for the detailed insight on this. I'll look into the others before doing anything.

I'm going to be changing my electronics configuration today as well, but I need to do be able to swap out between 2 lipos while at the track. So I'll be doing the following like the attached pic.

rigor.. I run the alloy rear mount with the -2 deg. side and no spacers.. for outdoors it really smooth's out the rear and plenty of traction when you have the rear arms all way forward with spacer.. even on dry dusty tracks.

Sorry Jason. I didn't even think about being certain who's car this was and crediting them here. I was just excited to see it. I had just thought of it the night prior to going to sleep. Then BOOM! There's your car! Hah

Nice job

Yeah that makes sense. I run med to high bite indoor clay, and the 0 washers setting seems to be really good for me with the rest of my rear suspension setup.

Correct, I have known Rudy since he started racing RC, good kid and great parents.

Imagine how fast he will be with a mid motor once he gets it dialed in. In all honesty I dont think he needs to switch to MM but who knows for sure.

Default Stock Buggy Carpet Setup

Just sharing my carpet setup for anyone interested.

Small indoor carpet astroturf, wooden medium size jumps. More grip than you can deal with. Most tuning is to take away grip.

Tires: Dboots Terrabyte A Comp Front (inner and outer row of pins trimmed off), Dboots Nanobyte A Comp Rear

Everything kit setup except:
white springs 1.6 piston 32.5 oil all 4 shocks
Shorty battery full forward
3mm spacer under rear inner link (+1mm from kit)
RTR Weight ~1560g.
21mm ride height

Can drive super hard due to being very safe, no rolling issues at all. So fun!
