Default Bearings

So opinions on bearings. People just going with the factory team bearing kit or with a nicer kit? My lhs sells the complete FT bearing kit for $5.99. Includes 16 or 18 bearings. Just trying to decide if I should go with those or drop the coin on some ceramic bearings

So I ran my b5m for the first time last night and was impressed with its high speed cornering but low speed steering was lacking and it wanted to get sideways after landing jumps this in the stock class running kit set-up except for white rear springs and with gold barcodes front and rear on a medium bite indoor tight track with lot of 180s and medium double jumps anyone else run into this and found a solution or are these just characteristics of the mid motor chasis

That's too cheap. It's probably a mistake. But on your ceramic bearings question, you can put them in your transmission, but don't bother using them in the front & rear hubs - not really necessary. I bought Avid RC bearings to freshen my ride up for indoor season(No ceramic) & they were $26.

Does anyone know if there are any geometry differences between the B5 rear arms and the B5M rear arms? I noticed the two are almost identical, except the B5 right arm would fit on the left side to get the same wheelbase (despite the markings), and the ball inside the webbing for the sway bar kit is on both sides for the B5 arms.

I replaced a B5M left arm today with a B5 right arm today and everything looked identical, the car handled the same, etc. Just wondering if it was my imagination or not. lol

they are different. Just put the other Rm arm on. The RM arms sweep forward about 2mm.

Yep you just put them on opposite the way you would normally, right on left, left on right. They were nice when the track was starting to drop off in traction. I switched back over to b5m rear arms because the tracks I race at are really consistently high grip now.
