If you want more weight, add a square pack or lead. IMO the weight is fine and i like the flex of the chassis on high bite. imo, the regular chassis is too stiff

Anybody have the STL files I can use to print a 3-gear trans case for a B5M? (not the shapeways one). Looking to print it at home, not send money off for one. Thanks

I believe you are talking about the limiters. Most all setups use one or two. I use one and have had good luck.

Yes I'm talking about the shock limiters. How many go in each shock for the lite box setup?

got my build started last night on my lite, I like the new AE plastic, much better and stiffer than b4.x plastic, almost reminds me of Losi graphite parts back around the Drake and Drake2 truck days. The arms and steering knuckles are a little tight for my liking and free up if I back the screws out a half to 3/4 turn, anybody else notice that and if so whats the fix? put the pins in a drill and spin them in the arm for 1 to 2 seconds?

Perspective is always interesting. Weight is a direct reflection of friction.

They are for spacing the axle toward center to keep the bone in the outdrive as he is running the +4 C mount (via the GHEA +2 inserts)
