hey Andrew. you really only need the brass blocks if conditions are really loose.. like dry dusty. I like them better then just adding weight as it puts it in the very lowest and farthest back portion of the car.

I have a b5m running on a clay indoor track that has a little push going into corners and does not have the same low end punch as the other 17.5's. I was told to lighten up the tranny with an aluminum top shaft, mip puc system, nova slipper, bfast diff and b5 front a arms and shock tower. Any suggestions or advise if I'm going in the right direction or additional mods. Thanks.

I honestly would just get the lightened top shaft, and invest in a better motor. The cars so light you shouldn't have any issues with low end, maybe mess with your timing/gearing. On my car I use the b5 rear and front arms and b5 front shock tower

My 17.5 roller has about $500 invested lmao and thats including a slrc lightened chassis. Sitting at 1505 grams and dialed. I like mod so I built another b5m.. what a cruel hobby this is sometimes!

The slrc chassis has been mentioned alot on Facebook in the b5 nation but just if you havent heard the details..
6061 aluminum, .5 thinner over stock chassis, about 24grams lighter. Dropped .3 off my fastest lap time and highly recommend this chassis if your serious about stock racing.

Your running a mod car im not even going to argue with you why a lighter car is better in stock racing! Lap times dont lie..all im saying. In stock you are better off being at 1499grams.

If you try what we are doing ?

Your ride will be a lot smoother and consistent in the corner.

More grip too...

BTW

my ride is at 59.6 oz ,1672

Lighter is not necessarily better...

More weight under the battery will help you more then lighter parts every where else on the car ..

Huge difference...a game changer in my book

I don't know about that. It's probably because I race stock, but lighter has always been faster for me. I'm down to 1460 race weight. I had to go to softer spring more oil and lower roll centers but it is faster.
