Avid Spurs can be soaked in water for a few hours and it dramatically reduces noise.

Ran my B5M for the first time a couple nights ago. Stock setup, worked pretty well, fairly happy with it so far. Only a couple of tenths off from the car I've been running for a long time. Figured I would share a couple of pictures!

Default Arm Mount "D"

So what is adjustable when using the aluminum D arm mount with the inserts since the C mount controls toe and squat?

I'm serious. Kurt, when he was at Avid, said that's what you should do. It's the type of material and molding process. Soak for a few hours submerged. The Schelle gears are quiet from the start.

It does work on them as well but you might have a visit from the cops...

Nothing just replaceable bushings.I guess the little bit of extra weight is good also.

I would simmer them..Not a rolling boil or that might cause distortion, but not likely.

Simmering would likely open up the pours in the plastic/nylon allowing the moisture to be absorbed better.

All of this happening at the microscopic level obviously.

Like you said you're being serious, and it does work. The age of the part has an affect on how noisy they are as well. A spur that's been hanging on the HS wall for 2 years may be noisier than one ordered direct from the manufacturer last week.

On that note, I would take it further and marinade before. I like Caribbean jerk marinade or go with BBQ sauce. Either Fat Tire or Bass beer to compliment it.

Mmmm. I'm 50/50 on marinading or saucing after.

Hows the inline setup working for everyone? Is it worth the gains in both classes? Is it easier to drive? Or is it like relearning how to drive a mm all over again? Just getting used to learning how to drive this buggy and I'm getting pretty fast... Just was so used to rm i almost stayed with it. Is the mod worth the gains or stay with current setup?
