If I install the ft blue rear hubs do I need to put a 2mm (or any washer)washer under the ball stud?

I think the hubs are stock 1mm below the lowest plastic hub setting. The sponsored guys have been running 3mm of washers in most setups.



Question. Brent posted his setup. he is doing 3mm on the inside rear camber link with it flipped to the low position... That is the same is it mounted high and 1mm washer right? so why are him, rivkin and others doing it that way?

So if I want more on power traction exiting corners I lower the ball stud at the shock tower......did I read that right in the back of the manual.

Maybe those guys are running on very high bit tracks.

do you really have that much grip that you have to slam the weight forward for more steering?

only difference is the inline can change directions easier .

setup is no different from using the battery normal.

The traction is equal to running the pack in rear standard kit fashion.

The ESC mounted under the motor guard helps make more weight on the rear.
Then you get to ditch all that motor wire for less weight forward & above the battery.

I drive other B5 normal all the time and it always my ride drives better, more consistent,no stall in slower sharp corners ECT.

I never limit my servo speed. I run .06ms speed servos. I hate to limit myself, I prefer to get better with my trigger and steering.
