run laps on both and pick what you like best. its pretty easy to change the towers and arms. It seems that "most" guys like the flat arms. I would try the stock arms first. then switch to the flat.

Default Finished my B5M

OK, finished up my B5M. It's the stock kit plus Lunsford front axles, screw kit, turnbuckles, hard front and rear towers, rear hubs, front caster and steering, flat a-arms. Orion R10 and VST2 7.5 motor and saddle packs, 4PKS-R radio, Spektrum 6040 servo, Proline double-dot MC scrubs and Suburbs with closed cell foam. And I get to test it all day at the track tomorrow

You'd be surprised what you can do by selling your old car, buying used electronics, batteries, and motors. I am proudly sponsored by Lunsford racing and Pro-Line. But yeah, it's a really nice car so thanks for the compliment!

define better? the Ti will be lighter than axles plus clamping adapters for sure. If weight is you main goal, get the Ti axles. As far as clamping goes, I dont see a need aside from bling. The stock axles are fine, unless you need to drop a few grams

Stock is fine. But it does lower rotating mass. I would go with ti axles because they are simple. And I would recommend the Lunsford ones

Seem to have the pucks working better now. Ran faster lap times in practice yesterday but that can always change when in a race lol

so you're saying you don't know how to set up a car, you don't know how to make adjustments to fit your driving style?

My request was not a compliment nor any sort of derision. I was merely curious about the amount of money some of you racers are spending to improve performance.

I'm thinking about getting some front axles and top shaft myself.
