I'll see mine Wednesday I was super busy Thursday afternoon and forgot to do the backorder from A-Main so by the time I did it Yesterday it wouldn't go out till Monday

The plus is that I had 2 on BO and I decided to only buy one so the next guy on the waiting list got one LOL

How much $ and how many gets do you expect, because being a little closer to "ground zero" I know what I'm talking about!

I wanted to run stock once my b5 comes in so I was wondering what are a few good choices? I wanted to get the revtech high torque but it isn't in stock everywhere I looked, so I was thinking maybe the Schuurspeed extreme spec or Reedy Mach 2?

I take it the vehicle comes with a 72T spur and not the 69 mentioned in the manual if I recall correctly for stock usage with the Reedy 17.5 Motor?

well you have more space in the b5M than the b5rm. so we can conclude, anything fits in a b5r, will fit.

Posted this in the rear motor thread, but figured I would put it here too since its the same. I used a 12mm setscrew and m3 locknut to secure the front axle. Some guys have had issues with the screws backing out and the wheel coming off, this should take care of that. Make sure everything is clean with alcohol or brakecleaner and use red loctite on the screw. Let the Loctite dry and then wipe everything back down and install axle into the hub. Make sure no Loctite gets on the bearing!!!
