If they just tossed in the new fox shocks it could be a new version.

If you are absolutely sure you want to run Proline wheels, ordering them for a B5 can be a little confusing if you are weary. Proline doesn't anywhere list their wheels as being "for a B5". The wheels for the B4.2 with hexes are the correct wheels for a B5m, F&R.

The Proline wheels are pretty nice, well built, and have a different look, that is what I am currently running too.

I just ran a 3mm tap into the 4-40 threads. Then put a thin 3mm nut on the back side. Have been running it that way for months.

Same cover for v1 and v2. Change is bearing size in top shaft.

So the V2 top shaft will work in the old cover? Or should I buy new V2 cover and bearings?

Thanks Chris

The claim from AE is the +4mm mount "improves stability". It is a little hard to quantify how this change affects the car when you consider how many things are impacted by the changes in geometry, which include but are not limited to the following:
  • Lowers the static roll center due to the increased length of the upper link (assuming the same locations and shimming are used on each side)
  • Alters camber gain due to the increased length of the upper link
  • Affects suspension as the rear shock gets laid down by moving the arm out
  • Reduces rear droop
  • The wheel rate increases (center line of the wheel closer to the outer hinge pin) See section 2.8 here: Wheel Rate
  • Having the center line of the wheel closer the outer hinge pin also reduces the amount of force transferred to the upper link
I leave it to you all to interpret how all this adds up to "improved stability". Maybe someone from AE would be willing to elaborate/explain the reasoning behind it?

I recently put the +4mm mount on the car but without being able to run it back-to-back under the same exact track conditions without it I cannot really say with confidence how it changes the handling characteristics. I might venture to say the rear end feels a bit more "locked in" on a medium/high bite indoor clay track but take that with a grain of salt.

If I have a chance to try the regular mount in the same session I will post my experience here.

My guess is, that "might" be a thing next year.

They should come out with a kit with the fox shocks when possible. I don't think most want to buy a new kit or refresher kit and add in the fox shocks and have to sell the kit shocks, IMO.

Had an interesting failure while racing tonight. Has anyone ever experienced this?

I was driving a normal lap and had just landed a jump, went to turn and the wheel fell off. Upon further investigation I found that the inner front hub bearing had failed.

They are kit bearings, about a year old. They weren't gritty yet and I had kept them oiled. They were on their second race day since a full cleaning.

Just thought I'd share, I literally drove the wheels off of it!

I had the same thing happen to my tlr22 a year or so again. It happens.
