Just ordered my B5M kit but I see a lot of people saying to run the rear motor arms and some other parts, why is that?

Also, what are some good spares to keep in my parts box?? other than the normal arms and stuff like that, or just the standard stuff and I'll be ok?

Only use the rear motor arm if you need more grip.
You won't need at first, kit comes with plastic arms and you should start with those arms first.

Spares ?

Plastic rear hub

Anyone have a problem with the plastic rear hub ball studs coming loose? Loctite doesn't seem to take care of it - which is the main reason I switched to aluminums. But with my RM I don't want to drop another 30 on aluminums if its for that reason only.

Longer ball stud with a locknut, and blue loctite. I haven't had one come loose in 6 months of racing 1 -2 times a week.

Make sure when you apply the Loctite that is has ample time to dry. Mine have never come loose on my B5 or B5m before I bought the aluminum hubs.

Then let me ask this simple question - do you let the lactate dry before you screw it in? Or coat the screw then screw it in with it freshly applied?

The locktite gel blue works a little better IMO, but I also use longer studs and a nut on the back.

I prefer the loctite blue stick. not messy, works just as well as the liquid.

use a longer ball stud (8mm) and place a washer & lock nut on the opposite side.

If it ever comes loose or if you break the plastic ear on the hub ?

You won't loose the blue tab..
