Try some hole shot tires I'm a firm believer in them

I need some help on building the shocks on the B5M. The manual says to use a 5mm shock cup but I only see shock cups marked 1,2,3&4. I cant figure out what shock cups I should be using in the front and rear for a track such as OCRC in HB. Any help would be great.

My thoughts exactly... Make sure you have the correct tires and make sure your braking endpoint is set right... Touchy brakes can throw off your throttle if you are on and off both all the time... Mm is alot different then rm... For me i had to adjust to being alot more smoother at first... Really i dont even use the brakes except when jumping... You always have to be on slight throttle through the turns cause if you let off suddenly sometimes mm buggies will react violently... its all about how smooth you are with the throttle IMO... Box setup should run fairly fine with the correct tires!!

Use the middle sized spring cups, the numbers only refer to the molds.
As far as proper building, theres a great youtube video out!

+1 on tires. Was using chainlinks today and they were slippery, went to de ja vu and was like a totally different car, went from baby to beast.

This has most likely been covered a bunch of times, But why is the reason some run Kyosho springs, Is it just because there a slight different spring rate?

Kyosho's springs are made by X-Gear and they have a reputation for being the best quality springs on the market. Pro drivers from a variety of chassis sponsors have been running X-Gear springs on their kits (sometimes secretly) on and off for several years.

Looking for some advice. Been running my B5M and starting to get it dialed. Only think i can get figured out is how to get the car to maintain its corner speed. It seems like i have to slow down more than others to get the car to turn like it should. I'm running stock pistons and springs, with 25 wt oil. i had 30 in it but changed it to 25 and that really helped. Spindle height is still set to middle position. i use the same tires as the fastest guy so tires shouldnt be whats wrong. it feels like the car still pushes alittle in the corner. what would you guys suggest? thanks
