Any advice?
There is no terrain the B5M lite can not be made to work in.

Is 3-gear suitable for mod? Read that it was designed for stock only.

I watched Cavalieri and Kody Numendahl both run the B5m lite with success for the past week at OCRC. Hartson was also testing the new car and all liked it.

3 = spacer underneath with hole to the front
6 = spacer on top of wing
9 = spacer underneath with hole to the rear

Kody Nuemendahl and the rest of Team AE have shown the 3 gear is the transmission to run going forward.

I'm a little confused I have a b5, b5m and now a lite. My question is I'm running on carpet not ozite and b5 has 3 mm trailing axle b5m has 4 mm and built the lite with 2 mm but the steering felt real slow on entry so I changed to 3 mm and it got better but I thought 2 mm was supposed to be the most aggressive and yes I made the changes to axle placement and ackerman.

Is there a noticable effect on handling then?

So the spektrum s6270 servo won't work in a b5m? The way the servo mounts need to be put on get in the way of the wire.

Anyone know for sure they won't work?

On a high bite or med-high bite surface... yes. Outdoors and medium to med low grip I would say no. 4 gear would be better.

It really depends on all the factors of setup and track conditions. Worth trying for yourself. It won't wreck a setup or magically dial the car in, but definately worth trying out different settings. I reduce the angle for high traction and increase the angle for lower traction.
