Yep, got the updated crush tubes. I really believe the bearings are not perfectly concentric with this front hub design. Think about the tolerance stack up you have of 2 molded plastic parts with one being inserted into the other. If the location is off by a very small amount the axle alignment could be off.

I think a one piece part would fix this ... only problem is you lose the adjustability.

Of course, I no engineer (Oh, wait a minute ... I am ) Either way, just my 2 cents worth.

Car is really awesome either way though !

ran the rear motor front and rear arms and tower tonight, what a difference, it had way more low speed steering and seemed to have less roll in the corners good for .5 sec a lap avg.

well, it is shiney.....

Pros:
- pretty
- might help with cooling my moving the heat through the motor plate to the tranny.
- Performance? Well, xfactory dropped the concept for a reason, but I am sure Fred Swain will be here soon to tell us how awesome MM 3 gear is

Cons:
- Looks heavy
- Bodies were designed to be cut out on the other side for the motor plate.

All b5m bodies are symmetrical so you just transfer the cut lines on to the other side. Weight isnt a factor as roar nats the top 3 cars averaged around 1580g.

weight is and isnt a factor. Just depends on where the weight is. Alum tranny case "might" be a great place for it. This is a wait and see item for me. The pucks arew a great performance gain... this? I dont know yet. The B5m is pretty good already.
