I'm still rockin' the original heavy kit with a 4 gear and doing pretty well where I race. My first thought to all these new parts was...why??? But if I had the coin to go after it all it would be pretty cool. At the heart of it though, I'm a racer and a tuner. How my cars look takes a VERY distant third in my list of priorities.

On the B5M Factory Lite it runs just the basic slipper. I'm running mod with mine and was wondering if this slipper would be OK or are people upgrading to a different version? What slippers are people upgrading too?

Thanks

The 2 pad slipper is fine.

However, the Avid setup is really nice.

I agree with Socket, except that the stock is fine LOL, it sucks IMO but I have the avid on three of my "5" series and like them a lot very tunable and consistent.

IMO, the factory 2 pad is O.K. The Avid or Schelle 3 pad slippers seem to stay a little more consistent with mod. The big gain for me with the Avid vs. the stock 2 pad was maintenance. Factory 2 pad you need/should deglaze the pads weekly if not more. Avid or Schelle will run for weeks without touching it.

I have been using the avid slipper for a while. Recently, I tried the kit slipper and it is just terrible. Inconsistent. I didnt like it. That being said, Rivkin seems to do fine with the kit slipper....

I like it, the side profile is quite nice but the middle rib in the front window is not attractive. I'll have my painter not paint it in and make the whole window clear

I have to agree. I do like the machined +4mm hubs, but i would prefer one piece plastic ones for "give". Most of this other new stuff does not seem to fix any issues I have had and does have an integy feel.



Side note, has anyone had any "recent" issues with the inserts in the front hubs still not aligning and causing bearing bind? My sc5m and b5m lite kits had no issues, but when ever I buy parts off the shelf, they are not very good.

There's a method to set them up before gluing them that is sure fire. I've posted it several times.

Well if you have a sure fire way to snap them in and they work perfect, I cant find it searching by your Username and the keywords "glue" or "insert". The search function on rctech is not very good

haha, I said the ones that came with the lite and sc5m are fine. It is the oem replacements that give me a fit, lol. Maybe a running change that has not fully hit the shelves yet?
