I use a curved tip dentist pick. Can get a 4 pack of picks from Harbor Freight for $3.

You can also ask your hygenist for picks. They throw them away after they come out of the autoclave after a certain number of times.

Your local Pharmacy (CVS or Walgreens) usually sell pocket Dental picks for a couple bucks.

You could also use the redneck tool: any flat surface such as a table. Slam the gearbox half on the surface a couple times and usually it pops right out.

Another option is just to leave it in there and get a few more bearings so someday down the road you can build a complete 4 gear to have as a quick swap unit? That's what I am gonna do as 5X10 bearings are as plentiful as water, thanks AE engineers!

Hang on what shims for 3-gear transmission from a 4-gear. I've bought the motor plate shaft and case. I don't remember seeing shims were required?

What part number please?

The redneck tool worked great. Three smacks on the table and it was out. Thanks!

Hello Guys!
Going to make the move from a RC10 B5 to B5M. So was wondering if any set up will translate from the B5 to the B5M. Like shock oil weight? I run 30WF, 25WR at the track I run on. Should I just go with that? Or, is the MM car a totally different animal and start from stock. In all my old RM cars/trucks I have always liked zero anti squat. Would that translate to MM as well?
Anyhow, I am sure a lot have made the switch from a B5 to B5M and would like to learn from others on their experience. Hope to reduce the learning curve a bit!
Thanks!

Default B5m vs. b5m Lite

Hey guys, I currently have the b5m and I was just wondering what is your guys thoughts on the b5m Lite, should I get it? Or do I just upgrade my b5m now? Let me know if the Lite is worth it or not? Thanks!

The cars feel different. You might have a hard time getting use to the MM car, at least at first. Although the set up for the front of both cars may be similar I'd just go with the book set up and adjust as needed. Also, as if you hadn't heard, it makes little sense to not buy a B5M Lite.

Yes depending on the condition of ur kit. If u run on low traction the chassis def helps. If u run on super high traction the 3 gear helps. It's all preference

From my experience of building three different 3 gear transmissions, I have never needed to shim the diff.

on some I needed to shim and others I didnt. Case by case basis. But it is always a good idea to have various shims around. The top shaft sometimes needs a shim as well if you are OCD

Go to rc10.com and look up the manual for the B5M Factory lite and go to the section about building the transmission and it will show the diff spacers. Part # ASC1733
