I cut out so much plastic from my b5m but I completely missed that I can cut those triangles on the motor guard

Thank you, the change in weight balance is quite noticable when driving. In fact ride height dropped 1 mm in front & raised 1.5mm in the rear after the mod.
This why I suggested to check ride height before running with the inline.

latest

I installed the 4 x #55 losi pistons, 37.5w front & 32.5w rear.

Going to try them out tonight for practice.
These pistons are for improved handling or feel in the corner, they do not improve jumping or landings.

Considering I've broken a plastic rear camber mount and don't really need to further tune my rear hubs, I'll go with what makes most sense for me.

How do you you know they will yield improved feel in the corner if you are going to try them? ( meaning not tried them yet )

There's been an odd obsession with putting Kyosho shocks on the RC10 ever since I started racing in the 80s. Funny thing - my Avatar picture is of my Lazer ZX-1 from the early 90s and I have AE shocks on it

I find it hard to believe they would take out that much side bite but the AE guys I've spoken with have told me that the hard rear arms do reduce rear traction enough to notice.

from Schelle's facebook:

"Also, customers can retro fit these standoffs to a Kyosho RB6, M3x22 mm screw required. Although not specifically designed for the RB6, they fit the Kyosho shock caps nicely."

I had an RB6. Personally, the shocks were ok. And I really disliked some things about them.
