Kickup & Caster have nothing to do with it. It's because you have 3 points (arm mount, camber link mount, steering link mount) that are stabilizing the wheel. So when the top camber link mount moves in relation to the arm mount, the steering mount which is in the middle will be affected. That's why we have bump steer adjustment, to combat the changes to the steering mount as the relation of the arm mount and camber link mount change as the suspension moves.

So how does the car drive ? Did you notice any difference from the stock wheels ? I had a set of stock hexes cut down and the car was so nervous I couldn't drive it with losi wheels. I think the offset difference is 4.5mm per side.

I did mesure 4.20mm difference in offset and I'm at 4.05mm with the shim. Should be very close. I can still play with inner shim if needed. Will see how it goes tomorrow.

Thought I'd share a pic of my B5M with the new PL VTR rims/tires. I haven't had the chance to run them yet but here's my ride!

I run the AKA EVO series on mine, love them. Much more stable and less ballooning at full throttle.

That was one thing I noticed - way less ballooning just playing around with the car on my workstand.

Finishing up the body/wing on my build, and had a question: How are you guys mounting the wing, as far as which holes are you using? Do you have it further forward or further off the back? How does this affect the handling?

I'm on vacation and one of the indoor tracks is carpet. I ended with Michael schoettler's set up because tcrc is said to have very high traction. I also installed a gear diff with 3000 weight oil.

The shop carries a lot of carpet tires and they suggested dboots terabytes in either A or B compound. I ran B compound only because they were out of A.

It is very good although I wish that I had gray springs to try.

It was my first time ever on carpet so I really wasn't sure but it has been great so far.

Also, there are carpet set ups on petitrc.com.

Just had a blast with my mm. We had a new track open that runs an all clay track...holy traction. I had to get a new set of tires in clay compound lol. Awesome set up at the new SRS. I sucked it up but had a blast. My normal track is medium/high traction but this clay had such good grip and my MM really came to life!
