If you have all the stock plastic C & D arm mount pieces then yes. Shim the rear arms forward and you'll be fine.

Rear Hard arm way good in corner & decent forward bite.

Less side bite though, maybe -25% ...

Will be racing um tommorow ..

Fit & finish is great...

Tip

You have to always pre tap & grease the threads first with the HARD plastic.

can use a steel screw & grease or the best way a threaded hand tap.

Wow, that's a big hit to side bite! I'm running hard stuff except for the arms. You most def need to pre-tap with a steel screw but haven't found need to use grease.

Again you are writing posts that you know nothing about. Earlier you said you built your kit with the hard parts right away, so how do you know there is %25 less side bite???

Teammates? What team are you on? The team that gets there kits months after they are out? You have been posting for 2 months on a car you didn't even own

Anyone who checks this thread for advice should be smart enough to read that you often try to give advice, then say something that contradicts your previous post. Sometimes just hours after you last post.

your just fine with your front end but the Hard rear may be a bit lean on grip for you.

Looking to find out which is faster at Trcr.
Performs the same as using a carbon arm verses plastic with the B4 .

Big difference between the two
in other words.

Have to grease the screws , faster...

Bridge told me go all Hard ...

Got picked up by Trakpower for this year. I had the B5R and hated it. No parts and no setup. I will eventually have to go back to 2wheel drive buggy and the the Xray buggy for dirt is probably a year off. Is the B5M finally established setup wise? How about parts?.
