And I think I'll give them a try too - I have a ton of them.
#1 B5m lands like a cat on a cloud, does not not have slap issues...

I think your just use to the rear motor which jumps & lands better.
All mid motor will slap easier compared to rear drive.

#2

4x 55 have good pack and lands great.

That's exactly what I'm piecing together now from Fastenal. If someone already has it don I'd be in.

Still running stock setup and it's pretty good at my track, but I am looking for side bite. Any recommendations what I can do? I have enough rear traction, but when I go into our S turn, my rear end doesn't stay planted. Sometimes the car likes to get sucked into the outside line if I don't slow down in the groove.

Try 3mm under the rear inner ballstud. Helped on my setup.

I still can't find a reliable screw supplier, anyone know of any? I know there was a Japanese supplier, but I can't seem to find them again

Right, but we were talking about the 4 hole pistons, they only come machined.

Cherry

The e-clip breaking issue I haven't seen or heard about since the new v2 shocks have been out.

Check out the R1wurks thread. Sagisi posted a R1 fan mod that will allow you to stay at that same gearing and stay cool. Hope this helps.

Are you running servo/lipo/esc (front to back)? What weight oil/spring? Camber links?

It didn't feel much different to me.

Sometimes when your car is already very good, better doesn't feel much different. That's why you have to test with the computer lap counter on.
