Do you guys recommend the aluminum top shaft for modified racing? It seems most people here are using it in stock racing to reduce drive-train mass.

Aluminum top shaft isn't required for mod but is a little smoother due to the machining. I don't know about the 1/10 scale as im new to this from 1/8th but in my past experience 3rd party performance upgrades to things like the drivetrain are usually a little better quality than the upgrades from the OEM. That may not be true here just what I have seen in the past. I have the MIP topshaft and it is great quality and only arount $15

Do the JConcepts Mono wheels for the B4.2 and RB5 work on the B5?

I know the hex is the right size but are the front and rear offsets correct?

Do you think you can handle the quicker wind up? You can be sure it will scallop after awhile. For this specific reason I ordered 2 MIPs. If you replace all the other plastic gears some what regularly then the wear may not be as bad on the top shaft - i'm just not a maintenance junkie lol.

Yes the B4 wheels transfer over to the B5. There is not a B5 wheel.

One avg joe type driver I spoke with said it was very smooth. Nothing more beyond that yet.

I race on a high traction track with little choppy bumps. My car is good but dances around good on the straight away.IT feels like the shocks are packing....So my question is...... if I put in the 1.4 three hole pistons with lighter oil will this get ride of some of the packing?? And soak up the little chop?

Thanks
