Has anyone used the Revolution Design Racing Products RC10B5/RC10B5M VTS Slipper Kit? Or do you recommend the schelle/nova one over it.

I would use the Avid Evo triad slipper over the RDRP slipper. The RDRP reminds me of the "clutch" basket that came out a few years ago for the sc10 4x4. While it was ok back then on the truck, the Triad slipper is just fantastic on the buggy.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that this car is fing fantastic. Such a pleasure to drive around the track. I have owned a few different cars (RB6, dex210, tlr22, tlr22 2.0...) over the years and this car is just all that...ok fanboyism /off

I found the exact opposite to be true. The dip behind the roof of the silencer seems to create a bit more down force on the rear of the buggy, giving it a slightly more planted feel. The straight back design of the finisher seems to give it a slightly more aggressive feel.

The differences are tiny. Pick the one you think looks better and practice.

I think Brandon is spot on...on my car the Silencer is an easier more forgiving drive...the Finnisher appears to be more aggressive.

Default +4mm

A few days ago, I bought the B5M Aluminum Mount +4mm (C). Ref. #91608
I installed it following the instructions sheet.
Putting the arrows outward in the #91389 D mount. 5mm new hexes. New heavy duty CVAs.
But, once at the track, the dogbones come out of the diff outdrives.
I put 2 spacers inside my rear shocks, and the stroke is 27.0mm.
Could you say me why thatís happen?
Any solution?? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm running the +4mm mounts and the 5mm hexes.
Didn't have to change anything else from the kit set-up.

Do the dog bones come out on both side?

You could shim the dog bone to reach further into the out-drive.

MiCk B. :-)

Sorry for asking a question that may have been asked a thousand times but if I buy a B5m lite can I still run the 4gear diff case and use the lightweight motor plate. I've looked at the chassis plates and all the holes seem to line up and I can't see why it wouldn't fit, of I'm probably really wrong.

Cheers

4 gear is a yes. not sure on the motor plate myself so one of the others who have done it can chime in.

I totally agree with this! Jc gave us the Finnisher for nats last year and wanted us to run it back to back with the silencer and give the feedback. The silencer hands down plants the car more and makes it feel more stable. The Finnisher is more aggressive and feels faster but it's always more inconsistent to me. I've switched back and forth during the same run multiple times and multiple tracks. The silencer is always my preference!!

The angled sides up to the rear definetly plant the car more!

If you're on a less than ideal track surface or lower grip use the silencer. If it's high high grip go for the Finnisher! If I were to run stock id use the Finnisher hands down.

If you want to run 4 gear you need the following
1x 91552 V2 4 gear Trans case
1x 91428 Std motor plate or 91546 LW Blk plate or 91547 LW Blue Plate
1x 91435 gear cover
1x 91429 Idler gear
1x 91011 Idler shaft
2x your favorite variety of 5x10 bearings

3gear and 4 gear motor plates are separate part numbers. So if you purchase a Lite will need a new motor plate (in addition to the remaining 4 gear parts)

http://www.redrc.net/2015/06/schelle...-topshaft-set/



Quote:
The new Schelle offset V2 topshaft set for the Team Associated B5M, T5M and SC5M was designed to shift the motor weight closer to carís centre line. The set utilises a 3mm extended hard-anodised aluminium top shaft, spacer tube, and a 3mm carbon fibre motor plate spacer to shift the motor plate and slipper unit in the car. This results in more stability and symmetric turning forces. The set fits any V2 3-gear or 4-gear gearbox.
