What is wrong with the rear end of the car? I assume you are not using pucks?

Correct. dog bone and outdrive wear so I will be looking into hardening. I just like proving that avg joe can be very competitive with stock/near stock kit.

Well my B5M just came, do I keep or send it back and wait for the B5M "lite" ? My indoor season is coming to an end anyway.

cool. yeah, my daughter used the kit bones and outdrives. They last a while in 17.5, but do need to be replaced eventually. But it is one of those things on knowing when to. Pucks actually makes it much easier to manage, and if you grease them, they last a very very long time. And stay consistent.

If you plan to run 17.5, I would personally send it back and get the lite version. just such a huge cost saving in the long run. Plus you said your season is coming to an end.

Both options MikeXray listed work fine. If you aren't happy with either you are going to have to suck it up and drop the 12 bucks on the 3 gear plate. Amain had them in stock over the weekend, not sure now.

it was not super great in stock lol. I blew out in that middle section, still sad about it. that section is curved, maybe hard to see in the video. And the Mod guys wanted a triple that stock guys could not do, lol. So they got one, lol.

that's what real clay is about.

then you can make ashtrays or other goodies out of it and fire it in a kiln. Or spread it on the wifes face as a mask. throw some on the garage floor to soak up that oil. etc

That's where Cactus is at now? oh nevermind... missed that W3.

I was going to say if that's where Cactus is at, it's no longer on my bucket list
