My daughter loves purple and it would match her paint scheme which is purple/white/pink.


Anyone use fastener-express? Lookin at these

+1 have ordered from fastener express a bunch of times. Their aluminum screws are top quality. The hex heads are nice and deep.

oh no, here comes the MM vs RM debate. Well, let me put it like this. My laptimes are the same with both, but IMO the RM car is easy to setup for lower bite outdoor racing. That does not mean, the MM wont work. I am saying the RM is easier to get right out of the box. That has been my experience. If you have a lot of fast guys locally running MM B5s, you can always pick their brains. But, me personally? I would buy the RM kit. Then, if I find out I am lacking, maybe get the MM conversion. Actually, that is exactly what I personally ended up doing. MM is nice, but it definitely has its draw backs. Especially in 17.5.

I have not used fastener express yet but I have used microfasteners.com . I think there's only been one screw i have yet to find on there. That being the b4 front top shock mount screw.. they had both sides of the exact size but not the exact size if i recall correctly.

just another option.

I am currently setting up a second B5M to dabble in Mod a little. I have the buggy setup right now and have all the electronics in it but I have a question as far as can timing on the motor and gearing for those of you running the Reedy Sonic Mach2 8.5T. I am running an Orion R10Pro/Reedy 8.5T combo. Currently it is set at 32* can timing and I am running 23/81 gearing. Temps and everything are good driving it around my warehouse at work but figured I would ask and see what people with similar setups are running as gearing and can timing.

When I run my 8.5 I use the same gearing but run 20degrees of timing. I usually run this on a mid size indoor track with tighter turns. If the track is more flowing or a little larger I run a 7.5 with 21 or 22 pinion and can timing around 20 as well.

Kind of confused. I have the AE blue aluminum shock bushings and the aluminum shock caps on my b5m but is it supposed to be metal on metal or is there supposed to be a plastic bushing. The alumni shock caps didn't fit on my Sxhelle bushings w the white bushing so I got the AE blue ones. Anyone know?

from amain
This is a pack of four optional Team Associated Factory Team Aluminum Shock Bushings. These bushings are machined from aluminum for improved strength and anodized blue for good looks.

NOTE: These must be combined with the Associated Shock Bushing Balls (ASC91447).
This product was added to our catalog on March 14, 2014.

Looking to set up my B5M for a indoor clay track small to medium, what is a good starting set-up? Would I benefit from using the front flat lower control arms?

Depends on what you feel with the car, the stock gullwing arms give more steering(which may be better for a small track) alot of guys run the b5r tower and arms to tame down the steering, i personally am running the stock arms at Critters Raceway which is a small indoor clay track and have been up front in every race. Running stock springs, with 2x1.6 front 32.5wt 2x1.6 rear 30wt, rear shocks inner hole, front shocks middle hole, camber -1 on all 4

Thanks but I have those plastic bushings, they don't fit... And thank you for copy and pasting the directions from Amain but that's for when using the stock plastic caps.

I have aluminum caps and aluminum bushings and the plastic bushings you guys are referring to and they don't work.
