Could of just flipped it , no shims..

Or

no flip, but can adjust the amount of shim's for more tuneability.

seems like the shock eye is below the front bulk head with the gull

Flat arm shock eye is even if a little above on bulk head

Get sure the top shock eye is a whole hole different between the two.

thank you. I will look into it. Didnt notice it in the pics.

ETA is anyone running hard arms? I am wondering how they handle regular racing. I am affraid they might be brittle?

ETA 2 wouldnt running your shocks on the inner hole at the top do basically the same thing?

Check out the relation to the lower shock mount and pivot points of lower arm. Also check out tower mounting bolts vs upper shock mounts.

So, after trying to get out of the hobby I am pulled back in and have a B5M on the way. I just wanted to make sure all my basis are covered after reading through so many pages of this thread. As of now I am not going to do the little things that I see the more vet people doing (cutting and what not). I plan on racing this in stock and as of now my driving skills are still whats slowing me down. So here is what I got for the B5M.

Lunsford Ti Turnbuckle
B5 Front Shock Tower and Arms

Any other things I am missing?

the rear alum camber link would be good for durability. In the past it has appeared to be a little weak.

Think you got it right to first concentrate on your driving skills. Once you start competing with the other drivers in your class you can get an aluminum top shaft, mip puck system, slipper eliminator. This car is great right out of the box. I would build it per the manual before doing anything. Get used to the stock setup first so you can compare any changes to stock when you make them. You made the right decision with this model. Super strong and drives great. Enjoy the build and good racing to you.

Thank you for the information. Could I get a link for alum camber link and the slipper eliminator?

you can get what ever you want. personally I would hold off on the slipper eliminator. I know a lot of people that dislike it. If you want to shed rotating mass, then I would get the AVID Triad slipper. The stock slipper is pretty heavy for 17.5. And temps could be an issue in 17.5

Here you go. http://www.exotekracing.com/

Heard different opinions on eliminator. I run a tight slipper anyway so I was used to controlling things with my trigger finger. Definitely an item you can wait on until you have a chance to practice some more. FYI, I had tightened my stock slipper to the max to emulate an eliminator but still had the associated weight of a slipper. Normally, you want to back off the throttle when landing with a tight slipper or eliminator but I have not had a problem stripping idler gears to date. The 17.5 does not have the torque of my 7.5 (strip idler gears frequently on my sc10) so probably not so critical to be off the throttle on landings.

I think the 2 pad slipper with vented disks is a better way in stock. Only reason is dont like the idea of the trans taking a big hit on big air landings or crashes. It will also transmit back to the motor too. Just my 2 cents
