Can you post a picture of the contact?

The b4 shocks have nothing on the new shocks. I dont think I have seen cav or anyone else use the gold shafts in their new shocks. The explained why the gold shafts were not better. The changed the shock bodies to tighten the tolerances in the section with the orings. And personally, I see no issue with the plastic shock caps.

Wow. So many people bitching about the chance at getting one. Let's talk about the build and any hints to make the car better.

Here is my input on the build. I have replaced the rear hub ball stud with a 10mm long ball stud. That way I could put a nyloc nut to jam against the blue alum plate. No loctite then and makes for adjustments without loctite drying time.

2nd I have noticed on my b5r that has about 5 race days on it that the inserts on the front spindles have sloped out a little. Has anyone had this happen. I just ordered 2 extra sets of spindles and I will glue the inserts in. Just need to change them out when tunning.

I will post pictures of the Lunsford front axels in a few days. They should be available on his site.

Default Lunsford B5 axles

I got my Lunsford axles today. They look great and save 4 grams over the stock axles. I will try to post comparison weight to clamping hexes later.
I hope to have them on later this week.

Nice! I was hoping to not have an urge to buy new saddles or a square. I already have 2 short packs

Did anyone have play/slop on the rear arms on the inner hinge pins ? So far I've built everything on my B5m except the shocks, and this is the only spot on the car that doesn't feel flush/tight. It feels exactly like my B4 did. You can move the rear arms forward/back easily a few mm. When inspecting the area, I don't see any way I could have assembled wrong or not pushed a piece in all the way. The rear hinge pin brace has to be pushed in far enough for the bottom chassis screws to line up and screw into the rear shock tower. With the fit and finish on the rest of the kit, it just doesn't feel or seem right. One side seems to have more movement than the other as well.

Thanks,
Jesse

Jesse - The rear motor car had a little bit of front/back play at the inner rear arms as well. Most just threw in a small shim to tighten it up a hair.

Thanks Matt, didn't know that.

Bummer... it's the only spot on the car that is like that.

the 5m shocks are great.. the coating is nice but not needed.

somebody posted shorty packs = more forward traction... ummmm noooooo...
shorty packs offer tuning options for weight displacement of the battery.

This buggy is really good.. but tuning options will depend on various driving styles and items used in the car.. someone who has a shorty servo may not have the same tune as someone running a full size dig. servo.

for stock I like shorty packs.. for mod I like the squares.. my setup is very neutral with lots of steering and traction.. jumps amazing. the key to setups is finding something that makes you faster by making your car easier to drive consistent as well as fast.

Mine has a ton of slop, prob like 2mil on one side and 3 on the other way worse than my b5rm. Other than that the c ar was pretty good. If anyone cares I did race it on carpet. Stock setup was pretty good. Then went to heavier springs. Got better, but a little edgy. Prob needed a little heavier oil. Another thing I noticed was your motor wires have to be as out of the way as you can get them or your body dont fit good

I removed the bottom cover and cut out a small notch so the wire and grommet would flip to the bottom of the servo and then was able to add the mounts and get the servo mounted. It is not "sealed" anymore but should not be an issue with the indoor tracks(s) i will be running on.


Was a pretty simple fix
