A lot of different companies make the same aftermarket parts for the B5M, but I was looking for thoughts on who makes the best.

I have been getting all Associated stuff (rear hubs, clamping hexes, pin brace, etc, etc...) and it seems good to me, very nice fit and finish and the price is good too...

Any input?

Works well on our small, tight, medium grip indoor track.

Has anyone tried the RC Shox "garodiscs" in the VTS slipper? Do they work well? Compared to the Avid / Schelle slippers?

Any thoughts or advice though?
On carpet my b5m with a 9.5 feels like a dog compared to my 44.3 with a 7.5. And, given the traction, the 2wd comes off quite hot. If I were running carpet frequently i'd probably put a 7.5 in my 2wd (somewhat for speed reasons and somewhat for heat) and a 6.5 in the 4wd. Track is maybe 100x50ish

Schelle, Avid, Exotek, Jconcepts. I've never had any issues with any of parts of who I just listed. I don't think you can go wrong. Just pick the part based on price and availability.

I use pretty much schelle everything and the ae aluminum stuff but just like Buddha said it's a wise idea to stick to the top brands because all of them make top notch accessories.

I have a 10.5 in mine, with a touch of timing on the esc, and I am keeping up with 8.5's and 7.5's.... After a 8 min run, I am coming off at about 160..

That's interesting. Maybe I should run 8.5 if I really want a similar feel between the two. Thanks, man.

Thanks, Scott. I've got a 17.5 in it right now cause I thought that was gonna be required. I decided on Saturday to redo the setups on both buggies and didn't have the B5 ready by the time I got there Sunday. So I ended up only running the D413.

I'm going to leave the 17.5 in there for this Sunday and see how I like it but want to be prepared with a mod motor depending on how things sort out with classes as we get going on the new track.

-Chris

I use their garodisks and love them, but I just use the 2 pad configuration. Much lighter and feels more linear.

I would definitely use the RcShox pads in a 2 pad system. If you are looking for a 3 pad system, the Avid Evo Triad Slipper is hard to beat for performance.
