Gentlemen/ladies, I need some help.

I am new to the racing side of RC. I recently went to my local outdoor track to break in my B5M. I have everything set to factory settings and am using a tekin rs gen2 10.5 turn with tekin gen2 esc. I'm using gold dirt webs. The track was a tad dusty, but not terrible. It looked like a 4wd kind of day but the car was absolutely awful. Constantly spinning the tires and while spinning the car always pulled to one side or the other. Is that a slipper adjustment that needs to be made? Diff adjustment? Should I run softer springs than stock? I'm just lost. I'm sure the car will be fun indoors this winter but I'd like to enjoy it before then.

I also had my SC10 out and while it was tough to drive as well, it had alot more traction than the buggy. I know I'm a terrible driver right now, but I know someone can help me make it a little better.

Help a newbie out, please? I'd really appreciate it. Everything I read from you guys is more centered towards front end handling, doesn't seem like many of you are struggling with rear end traction.

Thanks guys/gals!

2.7 oz thats alot of weight.....a new bottle of shock oil is 2 oz....my track has alot of traction so I might give it a try.

a saddle weights 2 oz more then a short pack.
Not so much weight really .
The point is its all slamed way low improving the CG for smoother handling on high traction.

On loose track the weight helps improve grip

Works, just try ...

Can trim a little and use less weight , don't recommend it however.

shock oil is a measure of volume, not physical weight. I understand what you mean but its 2 different measurements. 2.7 oz is only roughly 76 gr. its still alot if your running stock and trying to keep that baby on a diet.

I got my Protek Ti screws. I have not tried every brand screw, nor the lunsfords, but the protek ones were heads and shoulders above the tlr 22 screw kits tlr had. They have a more silver finish too. I replace the steel screws, so all of my holes were pre tapped. The only thing is.... they included all of the under the chassis screws and screws for the shock standoffs and arm mounts. I am, not use I want to use TI on the shocks , the transmission screws and the bumper screws. Anyway, if your looking for Ti screws for your car, the protek ones seem solid

sorry bout that & missing your post here also.

I checked today the differences in the up travel .

The rear tower has about 3mm
The mid tower has less then 1mm but can still bottom out front of chassis.

Can say my ride landings off of the jumps was not changed or effected .
Handling and steering gain a huge improvement.

Sounds like u may be on the wrong tires. And u may have a loose diff along with some tight suspension components. Best bet is to talk to one of the regulars and get them to look over your buggy and give u some pointers. Good luck and keep us posted.

I don't have the B5m yet (tomorrow hopefully) but what Lipo are you using ?
On loose track you may want saddles or the shorty fully at the back to gain weight at this end. That's an easy setup change. What ride height are you using ?

The set up with the flat arm & mid tower has to be one of the best improvements thus far.

1st mid tower & flat arm
2nd adding weight under short pack

All included with the Tacompton .2 set up.

Is there a setup section on this forum that I'm overlooking or something? I can't find any of these setups y'all are talking about.
