Any disadvantage of the having the hard front and rear towers since 91516 and 91518 seem difficult to find?

What does running the B5 rear arms on the B5M do for the car?

On the first page of this thread it says people are having this happen I'm not new to mid motors and shimming them I have c4.2 and had to shim the top shaft and the diff because of play are the shims the same as 8th scale clutch shims.

Felt like it brought my car to life more side and forward bite, sometimes it pushes now though.

Anyone with one of these have a comparison to the RB6? Is it as good? I just picked one up and had the 6 a while back so I am curious.

This is the way it should be.

The etched 0 faces the shock. This means rear motor it is forward and mid motor it's back.
3mm of ball-stud spacing makes the high position. 1mm is the low. The kit hub has 5 link length options, with the aluminum hub you no longer have the longest/ outer ball position. Be careful about the thread length ball stud you use, if it's too long it will crush the bearing in a couple of positions. 6mm thread is recommended with 3mm spacing.

Excellent thanks!

yeah, same here. I actually cured some of the push by moving the hubs back

Got one today. SDRC got one in and I grabbed it this afternoon.
I'll be glad when this parts issue is cleared up.

You don't want to break anything on your car; you might be down for a while.

If anyone is to lazy to use the search button or read through all the pages like many of us have, then the next question will be what turnbuckles work? The people that are to lazy to use the features of the forum make it much less enjoyable for those that can and do. I am fortunate enough to see the AE drivers and engineers on an almost daily basis. I don't need this thread, I am only here to share the information they share with me.

As previously stated life's to short. So I'll stop wasting your time here.

Make sure you use loctite (BLUE) on them. I know a lot of people that had the whole axel come off during a main or qualifying.

In a recent video by Jason Snyder, he talked about tire wear and a wear line down the middle of the rear tire is caused from too much wheelspin. I just got done with 2 days of racing this weekend with my B5m, and my rear tires are bald down the center. Is there anything I can do, or anything I should do to prevent this from happening? I have a lot of traction, so that isn't an issue.
