The mip topshafts were made to fit the original tranny case and bearings. The B5mFL & T5 now come with v2 gearbox and 5x10 bearings and the 1 piece alum shaft.

They really need to update the conversion kit then to include those. guess it is off to the hobby store to see if those are in stock.

What is the easiest way to get the top shaft bearing out of the gear case without destroying it? Each time I rebuild the ball diff I also clean or replace bad bearings in the gear case but I cant seem to get that last top shaft bearing out of the gear case to clean it. Do most people just pry it out hoping not to damage the gear case and replace it with a new one?

put the top shaft in the bearing and work it out. use a small flat and work it out. use a dental pick and work it out.

How often are you guys replacing slipper pads and the spring? Once every 10 packs, 20, 50, never?

I use the Avid triad slipper and my answer is almost never. I replaced one pad that was a year old, because it looked worn. that being said, I probably should replace them more often, but I dont see the need.

I bend the tip of an exacto blade or small flat head screwdriver into an L shape and work it out that way. Hope this helps

Thanks. I didn't think of trying the top shaft.

If you bought a conversion and you need the other style gearbox call AE customer service and they will send you the correct one.

So what is the verdict on timing and gearing for the D4 short stack? Fan is not on the waterfall but have that brace on order. Fan is setup like in the R1 Wurks thread. On a B5M Lite with cut gears, pucks, and lockout.

I have the Fantom works and have tried everywhere between 66/32 to 72/30 and timing between 48 and 60 but the temps stay the same... Approx 160 with fan after 5-7 minutes. Any help from people who have actually run them? The motor just doesn't seem to want to respond to anything

How heavy is the car? What kind of surface are you on? What kind of grip?

I would start at 30x69 and 60 degrees of timing. Temp at 3 minutes, and if it's low, temp at 5 minutes.

The waterfall fan is the BEST setup when it's ran off 8.4 volts.

High bite indoor is the type of track I run. Car weighs in at about 1530 right now but could drop it back down to 1501. I just preferred the feel at about 1540-1550 grams.

I ordered the waterfall fan setup but I am running the R1 until my shapeways order is fulfilled

Default Aluminum rear hubs

Do aluminum rear hubs make a difference on the b5m?Besides making the car heavier. Is it worth the $40?
