Anyone else bought this set and have the same problem
The bearings are the same size - they should not be different. They go inside the diff gear, and the outdrive.

It depends on your layout. I think stock electronics layout, 175mm is right.

Is that the length to route the sensor wire along the center of the chassis?

Yes. Reedy makes a flat cable specifically for the B5M.

I'll call it Amain Hobbies product promotion since they're the ones who gave it that label, not Reedy.

Im positive that AE/reedy promoted them on their website when they introduced the 2 specific lengths for the b5 and b5m.

While it isnt B5m "specific"....it was marketed by Reedy for the B5m.

Ok ok I give up. Reedy 175mm flat sensor wires are for the B5M.

What if I only need 165mm, will my car spontaneously combust if I don't run the 175mm? (note the sarcasm please)

I got my shapeways fan mount warterfall by xMox and I'm really happy with it. Just a heads up for anyone who gets a black one, if you Dremel it for any reason its painted black and not made from black material so have that magic marker ready.

Anyhow for the guys having trouble with front bearings the following might be worth a shot-

I was back on shapeways and noticed a guy has a design up there for front axle inserts. He doesn't say which location they mount but I'd bet you could contact and ask or request. Maybe these have a better fitment?

I will not recognize your sarcasm and start an argument!
