Iím converting my Rc10B5 to a B5M. Iím using ASCís conversion kit that comes with the 4 gear transmission setup. I just hit an odd point in the top bearing. The B5 uses a 6x12x4 (pn25238) bearing but they donít fit in the 4 gear case. Looking at my B5M_lite book on the 3 gear itís using a 5x10x4 bearing. It seems like that size could fit but the kit didnít come with them. I cant see what Iím missing here.

There was a running change to the tranny case. It now uses a 5 x 10 bearing

Oh crap Wildcat I hope I don't need the new shaft... That would leave 2 spare MIP's that would no longer work. I was hoping on driving down to Schelle to get the bearings but if your right I'm screwed for tomorrows track time.

------UPDATE ---on B5Nation
Nolan Anderson No, there was a mistake and the kits received the new transmission case on accident, I can send the older one to fit the top shaft that uses the 6x12 bearings.

Any advice/opinions on getting a broken screw out of the wheel hex? I wasn't paying attention and over tightened the screw and it broke in half. Now half the screw is in the wheel hex and i can't get it out.

From personal experience with the old JConcepts hexes....good luck. If you can get at the end of the screw you might be able to put a fine cutting wheel on a dremel tool and cut a slot into it. Then use jewelers screw drivers to back the screw out. You could also try driving a tap through the opposite side, a screw extractor (probably too small), firmly clamping it in a vise and using a drill press to drill the screw out (not likely), or using the force.

My advice, without any sarcasm, is to buy a new set of hexes.

Yea i would definitely do that, but the problem is i anodized all my aluminum red and to get a new one anodized (JUST 1) it's another $50. This place charges $50 minimum wether it's to anodize 1 piece or 50 pieces

Easiest thing to do is go to the AE website and look at the product description and pictures of both.
