The Yokomo's look just like AE's, going to pick up a pack with my next order and compare them
That is cheaper!

I just started running the b5ML and using a buddies setup since he's been running it for a while. His wheels rub too.
If you are using the 2mm trailing (inline) option for the front you have to move the spacer from in front of the C-hub to behind (or vice-versa) and that will stop the rubbing. Figured that out because my T5M wheels were rubbing.

Basically you move the C-hub spacer where ever you need to to stop the wheels from rubbing.

I run my car with a full sized pack at 1550 (obviously not pictured)
Aside from the full-size battery, are your setups the same or similar to the regular setups for the B5M that pros usually run or do you need to make major/minor adjustments to make this chassis work well?

That will not keep it from rubbing. That merely changes the wheelbase to support the change in front axle location. When you go to the 2mm trail you are moving the axle in the spindle. When you space the caster block back you are moving BOTH the caster block and the spindle as one. I have not had any issues with rubbing of the ball cup on either my B5m or T5m.

Since I took steps to keep my weight up with the much lighter chassis, and the overall distribution is the same, so far, I haven't changed a thing. The only thing I am going to be doing, is moving to a slightly stiffer suspension setup. This will increase my roll resistance, but with the improved cornering grip of the carbon chassis, I am hoping the overall traction is a wash. The stiffer setup should give me the edge on landings.

Just a thoery in my head... I will find out over the next couple weeks. I only get to the track once a week these days, so my test times are limited! Damn kids!

With the release of the latest V2 “screw-on” style Team Associated 3mm shock shaft, Schelle Racing Innovations came up with some new 12mm shock pistons to fine-tune the shock setup. Available in the popular sizes 2×1.6, 2×1.7 and 3×1.4, each size is available in either a traditional flat piston or in a bevel design. The CNC precision machined Delrin pistons offer a precision cut outer diameter with smooth machined outer edge while the tight fit to the shock body reduces wasted blow by around piston edges. Each package contains two pistons, tuning guide, and bevel piston supplement.
Those look really nice. I am guessing they go on the TiN shafts? If so I am ordering the Fox shocks and those shafts next month and will get these Schelle pistons if so

They go on the V2 shafts. Available in both Titanium nitride coated (lasts longer) and chrome (smoother).

You KNOW you should really be consulting your local team driver on these things. What was his name again?

If you have the V2 screw on shafts then yes. If you have e-clip shafts then you will need the old style pistons. Schelle has machined pistons for both versions of shafts....just make sure to chrome check what you're ordering.

I have the stock e-clip that came with my b5m lite but will be upgrading soon.
