Only the b5m team kit came with wheels.

No wheels for the L or CE

Default Stock Racing upgrades

I've loved how competitive my Lite is for stock racing out of the box so I haven't felt the need to spend too much (to date nothing other than AE xrings) on upgrades. Now with plenty of time with the car I'm thinking of doing some simple upgrades. Specifically, wanted opinions about Schelle Racing Ceramic Gearbox Bearings and MIP Bi-metal pucks. For those that have upgraded upgraded to these have you felt that it's worth the money? Racing indoor over the winter but outside for summer. Any worries with Ceramic stuff and outside dust? Anything more important that I should consider? Thx!

my car has the Avid Aura ceramics in the trans and the cut gears and just those two items alone woke this thing up. I just added the Schelle slipper lock out and I ordered Pucks. Figured I'm all in now, might as well blow the whole wad

I'm also running my 17.5 car in mod so I'm looking for every advantage at this point. Mod guys are in the mid 19's for fast laps and I just cracked 20.4 so I'm close.

That is what I said as I went through my box. So I happily placed a 10.00 dollar order

I run my lite on both high bite and loose to med bite tracks and all I change from each is the tires and a different diff and slipper setting. Works great on both. If running mod you may want the heavier chassis on loose conditions.

I run a B5m on loose dirt. I've posted it several times, but it's worth mentioning again. The Ray Munday B5M guide is spot on for loose and outdoor conditions. Was perfect for getting going on my local indoor clay track as well. It's a really great overview of where to tweak for different conditions. Best changes you can make are green springs, 3.5 rear toe, B5R rear arms with hubs forward. Ray likes to add rear weight, but that seems to generate too much rotation momentum for our loose surface. I alternate between Hole Shot fronts when the surface is damp (higher grip), and Rips when it's dry and dusty. If you read through Ray's posts, he states mid beats rear under almost all conditions. At any rate, no need to wait for another generation. This car is current state of the art!

I'm about to get a b5 or b5m. I don't care what is faster, but can someone tell me which is more fun to drive and which can turn tighter? Mid motor is better on high traction and rear motor for low, but I only want the one more fun. I prefer oversteer more than understeers.

Well the V2 case did not fix issue. Can anyone shed a light on this issue? A friend said there was a running parts change but I can't find any part numbers. Almost ready to sell this thing and find another brand.

Your Rock Chalk signature makes me think you might live in Kansas... If you live around KC, take your car to Fastlane Raceway in Blue Springs, MO. I'm sure there are a few of us that can look at what you have and get you going.

If I use the 3.5mm toe in with the c mount can I still have the arrows in on the d mount?
