Well after not racing for 6 months I decided to take the B5M out for the first time. I'm using Hartson's setup for most of the car and Caveleri's Alum hub setup. B5R front arms and shock tower along with the rear arms. Also put in the Alum top shaft, Losi 22 Alum Driveshafts, Acer thrust, Alum rear hubs, and X-rings. Stock configuration with a full Proteck square pack.

Qualified 3rd for the 13.5 A-main, bad driving on my part left me with a 5th place finish. Overall the only thing I'm going to change is going to a shorty back to help with a little acceleration. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing except for my poor driving.

What do the B5R rear arms do on this car in terms of handling characteristics?

Anyone using the brass arm mounts? Currently using the aluminum ones, but wondering if it's worth swapping to brass for more weight. Anyone have a grams comparison?

If I put pucks in, I might use the brass. right now, my car feel pretty planted. but that would change if I removed 25 grams out of the tranny

Inside camber hole on chassis , 2 mm under stud

Rear outside hole on hub, 3 mm under stud, use 8mm ball

I'm running the brass arm mounts. Don't have the exact weight difference number handy, but does add a good amount of weight over plastic or aluminum, and does so in likely the best possible position for the mid motor car.

No, stay outside more traction then inside.
Do you have a good idea why the track becomes slick ?

drove the car lastnight and it was a blast. better than my old rb6 i believe. at the end of the night I added the weight under the shorty (thin lead) and it was definately an improvement! more stable for sure. lap times started dropping. end of the night the rc gods gave me some good karma and my good buddy dropped a grip of parts on my pit table for me! black alum hubs, and all the hard parts plus some extra spares! wow. christmas in july.

car is dialed
