Thanks all !!!
These will do the whole car except the rear inner hinge pins, as they are larger in diameter: https://kyoshoamerica.3dcartstores.c...-Set_p_51.html

These will shim up the rear inner hinge pins: https://kyoshoamerica.3dcartstores.c...et_p_6833.html

They work like a champ on my car

The car kinda sucks when it is heavy imo. I am about 1530 and it feels really good. So IMO you need to remove the weight.
Why do you say the car sucks heavy?
In heavy form the car is great for me personally. I do use a shorty 3800mah battery(because I had them), but added both C & D brass blocks, which made no percievable difference. Indoor track, clay, damp, high bite (dries throughout the day).

Edit: I should weigh my car sometime. I have no clue how heavy it is.
Steel turnbuckles, AE light motor plate, AE aluminum rear ballstud mount, LRP Flow ESC, RX-461, old school AMB transponder, Ace 1015 fullsize aluminum case servo, Shelle battery brace, Jcon rear clamp hexes, steel and heavy plastic for everything else. LOL.

it felt sluggish. I like the car more agile. Plus, for 17.5 the heavier car makes the motor work harder. I ran my car in mod a week ago and I still prefer a lighter car. 1530-1550. But our local tracks are unlike many others. really high bite damp clay running slicks.

Hahaha, dude I dont think anyone in the country, maybe the world is running the shock package we are locally.


front:
2 limiter
1.4x3 pistons
32.5 oil
AE Orange spring

rear
2 limiter
1.6 piston
30.5 oil
AE yellow spring


Also using front gulwing arms and tower. I dont expect many people to try this, lol.


My setup is based off this one.

Apples to oranges in comparison. From Driver To driver, The variable in speed is too drastic to say, "weight X works best with setup Y". Giving blanket statements over the Internet is like trying to give a haircut through a telephone. I can tell you what to do, but I'm blind to the result, and blind to your track, motor, and most important of all, driving ability.

Wildcat drove my car and hated it. My car with the same setup as posted above is drasticly different than his as well, I'm 100 grams lighter. In the scale of things, that is huge. There are also some other setup cues that wildcat didn't post that are mandatory when going that stiff.

That's nearly what I use too! LOL. Except springs...for me is gray front/ white rear and I don't have steering limiter in. Oh and also using standard gullwing arms/tower instead of the Hard.

Now I wonder if weight is similar or if the shock design is that versatile? Interesting.

Doesn't show whether the rear camber link mount is up or down, but I run mine down with zero washers inside and outside down on the hub for high bite, but middle down on hub for when track dries slightly.

WOW! So I'm at the end of the line with reading this string. Took about 3 weeks with off time here at work.

I'm running my B5r waiting for the boat to unload to get my pre order of the 5mlite from Tower.

Some of the 5mTrucks hit my track this past week.

Just got back into the hobby and bought a B5m for my son and I. I was wondering what you guys are doing for weekly maintenance on this car?

So is there anyone out there still running inline? Or was that just a quick little fad? I was thinking ha out trying it and then I took a few months off from racing and never got around to it. Got the itch to go racing again and wasn't sure if it was still "the thing to do"
