Anybody notice the Worlds b5m running gullwing arms?
Thought they made the car more aggresive on corner entry..

Also noticed running axles high.. Makes me rethink my carpet setup.

Guys run them on are track (high traction). In the up position they help with off power steering and vise versa.

so...I'm interested in the gullwing set up. For normal use how do you set the car up with the gullwings? This time of year we race our outdoor track wet. It was 39 last night. With the straight arms my car feels awesome with 27/25 oil, kit piston sizes, black/green springs but our dirt sticks to the front tires which causes me to have to really hit the brakes hard to make some tight turns. I guess I'd call it severe on-power push. I wonder if the gullwings would make a difference....those need to be sprung firmer right? Typically I drop 2 spring rates and 2 oil weights for winter. how would that translate....if that makes sense? I'm not sure if the change in arms would help but I'd be willing to try. Going back to a 4 gear certainly helped and I never thought that I'd do that.

I'm going to be racing on astroturf next weekend for the first time. Does anyone have a good baseline for a suspension setup? I'm assuming it's going to need to be lower and stiffer than my normal dirt setup.

NEIC???

I kept springs the same as my clay setup, and went to 40wt losi oil all around, and didn't do bad at all. I could have lowered ride height, but i didn't want to mess up the clay setup too bad..

Also, do yourself a favor, if your schedule permits, come up Saturday and work on your setup. They open at 3pm, and race at 6-7. That'd give you plenty of setup time, and feel better about NEIC. Use the whole day for setup, and roll from there.

I was gonna say, Associated did it first! Losi just did a better job designing the battery tray, but it also took them nearly 2 years

Yea. I'm actually not too worried about messing up the setup because I've never actually raced the B5M before so I don't have a setup I like yet. I normally run rear motor and in stock, but I'm going to try mod. I don't think I can make it up there this weekend to practice. I don't have too high of expectations. It will be my first time racing somewhere beside RC Excitement.
