I tried it for a few packs on a practice day. It adds A LOT of weight up front!! I don't really feel it's the best for dirt.

Is the pinion you got made by Robinson?
I discovered the 31 tooth alu pinion I bought yesterday was 28 teeth, actually by counting the teeth. Package said 31 tooth and the pinion itself was stamped 31. Just saying.

It is meant for carpet. It'll cause spin outs on anything else.

Michael was leading on the last lap of A2 when Spencer ran over him at the end of the straight and got the better of the tangle to take the win. If Rivkin was a clean driver it would have at least gone to A3.

Is there footage of this race anywhere?

Sure there was. The first 2 off-road tracks I saw back in the '80s were carpet. Not uncommon during the winter months in the Midwest. Generally called stadium racing.

That's a pretty bold claim there. I think Rivkin has gotten as far as he has without needing to be a dirty driver. Sounds like if Michael can't pull away, and leaves the door open, the better driver is going to move the slower one. The term I like to use is, "BOHICA". Feel free to google that.

Bold claim and I stand behind it 100%. I was 10' from the corner. Michael was hounding Rivkin the whole race, Spencer bobbled, Michael gets by, and gets run into at the end of the straight and Rivkin takes off.

Hey guys I just bought a B5M FL and wanted to find out if the new Kashima shock bodies are worth the price. I figured if they are I might as well get them now before I hit the track with it.

I have been slowly reading this thread but dang almost 1k pages is a lot of info!

exactly If the wallet (and wifey) permits, there's nothing wrong with a little bling!

Hey all, I have been thinking of picking up a B5M, and normally I am the kind that is going to look for the good deal on a used purchase but the used ones that I see for sale are running as much if not more than I can pick up a new light version for brand new i understand that there are upgrades on these cars but still the prices seem high for a used car. I am thinking there is little to do on the B5M light out of the box it is great for 17.5 but am i better off one way or another.

thanks for the input.
and the new one i am pondering is at Amain comes with a slingshot 17.5 for free so that would be a bonus as well

Very true! My wife surprised me with the car as a early bday present and I am stoked to get it on the track asap. I was just wondering if I should do them now but if it can wait thats cool to. I need newer electrics for it the most!

I did notice when I put the car together that the ball cups were really tight and then searched this thread about it and then pinched them while on the stud and it worked! Glad I read here first before posting lol!
